How to use a linter

Today we’re going to talk about linters.

When you use a linter, you will see red squiggly underlines all over your code. If you’re not used to using a linter yet, it’s hard not to feel like you’re doing something wrong!

You don’t have to feel that way.

A linter is there to help you write better code. There are reasons for the red squiggly underlines. Once you know what brings these underlines out, you’ll know what to ignore and what not to.

Responsive Vertical Rhythm with CSS Custom Properties and CSS Calc

Vertical Rhythm is an important concept in web design. It has the ability to bring a design together and make different elements feel consistent on the same page.

It was impossible to change Vertical Rhythm at different viewports previously, because we didn’t have the right tools. But now, with CSS Calc and CSS Custom Properties, we can change Vertical Rhythm at different viewports. This article explains how.

Intro to Object Oriented Programming in JavaScript

Object-Oriented Programming is a popular style of programming that has taken root in JavaScript since the beginning.

It’s so deeply rooted in JavaScript that many of JavaScript’s native functions and methods are written in the Object Oriented style; you’ll also find many popular libraries written in the Object Oriented style.

In this article, you’ll learn what Object Oriented Programming is and how to begin using it in JavaScript.

Faux Subgrid

I was super excited when CSS Grid landed in major browsers back in March/April 2017. I thought CSS Grid was going to change the way we make layouts; it did. We gotta thank Rachel Andrew and Jen Simmons for teaching all of us us about CSS Grid.

Unfortunately, even though CSS Grid has landed, subgrid (which I consider one of the most important CSS Grid features) didn’t.

But thankfully, there’s a way to create subgrids with pure CSS (no hacks at all!). This method works with all browsers that support CSS Grid.

Now that it’s over, it’s time for a proper review.

I want to begin the review by talking about the projects I’ve worked on.
