    The problem im seeing lately is that most websites now look the same, its like they all have this standard template or something. every website I go to has this thing that they all look the same.
    unlike back in the day when flash was a thing, people used to create out-of-bounds designs, along with tons of nice animations. Take example of the most famous web designers
    in the world in 1999+ was a group called ( 2Advanced Studios ). – But now a days, everything is flat. all gridded up the same way with a few minor positioning tweaks here and there.
    but basically the same crap over and over. When flash was around, websites told a story through their designs, quick animations and out-of-bounds effects.
    I totally understand that f;ash became a huge problem as far as security issues are concerned or a bunch of other things. but as far as design itself, it was awesome.
    I miss those kinds of designs, that today we rarely now see all because everyone now is into this flat & blocky designs look. slap a few fonts on a page add a few pics and color the background and your done. thats 2019 for ya….

    To assert that we're moving away from preprocessors seems really disconnected from reality. We might be moving from SASS, but we're moving to things like JSS- not really back to CSS as far as I can tell.

    Just learned CSS last fall. Saw some of the haywire mess that is layout with floats etc….went wide on that and landed on CSS Grid. Not a big investment to learn and works great. How did the ancestors do it?????

    Una explains these concepts so well; her enthusiasm is contagious. There's also PostCSS, and PostCSS preset env, which allows us to write custom properties and to use many of the currently unsupported APIs, falling back on older browsers. Altogether, it's true that this is still much to take in as a beginner, but as browsers gain support for these features, it should make it easier for designers and developers to learn CSS.

    Sure. Lets add tremendous NEW functionality when we haven't solved the basics of how to center or 100% heights or sizing text to fit an area that changes size as the area expands /contracts. These are basic things typography programs do easily. That we cannot so

    It's a god awful mess that is onerous, tedious and constantly changing for the sake of increasingly cumbersome websites that are fairly pointless in the first place. If you like being a web jockey, good for you, but give me a proper Windows desktop app to code any day 😉

    CSS is my nightmare, I'm no designer by any means but I have to do front-end and backend sometimes and the frontend takes much of my time.

    learned css when ie6 support was still a thing. now i realised that preprocessors can be avoided. things change freakin fast o.o but i welcome it, less overhead is always positive.

    Does anyone else find it absurd that theres 'the web' and that's how you use networked transfer, and it has silly rules like html5, css3 or whatever. Its incredibly compliant, retarding

    CSS makes some basic animations really easy to happen.
    It's not Dreamwave by any practical means, but hand in hand with JS it really makes the HTML stand out.

    I'm using grid all the times. It make things so easy and it needs to be supported from the framework level but nobody does it.

    Haha yes! The Peter Griffin CSS meme has always cracked me up. It’s so very accurate when you first start using CSS. I still struggle a bit, but I think the biggest problem is not knowing at first what calculation CSS makes for size and position also not knowing the inputs CSS uses for those calculations.
