Ask DN: Question for BEM enthisiests

almost 5 years ago from , Lead UX Designer @ Upserve

When you are defining a class, are you including every parent element?

For example: You have a container .content with a child .content__metadata and .content__metadata has a child ".timestamp".

Given that the selector will be namespaced to the block and there will only be one .timestamp in this block, would you give the .timestamp class a name of .content__metadata__timestamp or .content__timestamp?
