Hey pals, just a quick on: I’ve added a load of documentation for CUBE CSS now, so if you wanted to get into more detail about it, here it is https://cube.fyi
CUBE CSS documentation
This is what happens when I take a break from social media - a whole new CSS methodology turns up!
Seriously though, this looks great. Turns out I’m basically doing a lot of this stuff anyway, as a natural part of trying to find the perfect combo of BEM, ITCSS, utility classes, and all sorts of other stuff. It’s really cool to see it written up into a defined methodology.
I’m just about to start on a new project where I’ve got pretty much free reign, so it’s a good chance to use it properly. I’ll even give the bracketed class names a go!
They’re pretty controversial, but my god, they really do help!
I came across this sentence in the CUBE CSS documentation
Whether you like to author your CSS with Sass, Less, PostCSS, or even CSS-in-JS: the principles and methodology of CUBE CSS remain .
and I noticed that authoring CSS as just non processed CSS isn’t listed. Is writing straight up CSS just not a thing that serious front end developers do? I really like writing straight up CSS.
Yeh of course! That is implied by the CSS part
The point that sentence makes is that it really doesn’t matter how you do it.
I missed getting in on this again too… why am I always late for the good stuff?
There’s plenty to go on this thing yet, Todd!
Not sure I’m quite there with CUBE yet. I’m on board with the principles, but my attempt at using it on this project feels a bit scrappy in places - mainly around which things I make utility classes and which are components.
I am completely sold on the brackets in class names though!
I’m literally writing (as we speak) a tutorial which I hope will clear this up for you
Looking forward to it!
I’ve definitely adopted using [ ] to break up class names and tried to make utility classes where I can but need to have a proper look into everything. Will probably need to go over my code and rejig some things about
Once I finish the Eleventy From Scratch, I’ll look into it. I always buy something and then a day or two later you come out with a huge discount!
Plus, I’m using what you teach through your course on a site I’m building for a restaurant. Chucking WordPress out the door and going with Eleventy.
