What’s the best way to manage and document/audit CSS as you work? I design in the browser and finding on large sites that things can start to sprawl… at fault is (maybe) my tendency to experiment and then scale back to “essentials” but also dealing with unknown and developing client content. Appreciate any tips or ideas.

Very good question.

When I design in the browser, I tend to do the design process as rough as possible, writing pretty janky CSS, because in my head, in the main design phase, I’m making prototypes. Only after this main phase, I’ll start writing production CSS in components.

In terms of documentation: I’m a big design systems advocate, so even a small component library, using something like Fractal or Storybook would be really helpful.
