    I don't always agree with Eli, but...

    Is there some context that I'm just not getting here?

    • The animations/copy pairings under "How does it work?" feel super constrained - like Jan said, up the vertical padding there and let them breathe.
    • (Personal opinion) I think everything looks better with a system-font stack.
    • I think the font weight you're using for the headers could be reduced by 100 or 200. Instead of relying on the weight to differentiate the title from the rest of the copy, try playing with opacity or color. To me, this looks better than the heavy bold you're using.
    • The footer feels a little out of place. Like it was just thrown in there from a previous design. Maybe the call to action directly above the footer could incorporate the footer content to the left of the resting dog - you'd obviously need to adjust the vertical padding on that as well to accommodate.

    This is my go-to replacement for a default system stack.

    Their dynamic metrics formulas have made life a lot easier after building a few Sass mixins.

    So the very obvious question here is how are you planning on overcoming the "chicken and egg" problem?

    I can definitely see the usefulness of this app - but without launching in a very small market I don't know how you'll have a large enough user base quickly enough to make the product worth anything to your users.

    Tbh there are tons of benefits to the Javascript solution even without expanding it further.

    • You don't have to have a more complicated DOM with additional data properties to reference in the pseudo elements.
    • You're not bounded by the number of elements available to attach pseudo elements to. In my examples I wouldn't be able to go past 5 layers without adding additional div wrappers to the span, making it much harder to build a reusable component.
    • You're not relying on a pseudo class to display the text in a non-activated state which causes significant accessibility issues, specifically for screen readers.

    So it sounds like your dev had his head in the right place for any number of reasons. Also, personally, I find Javascript a lot easier to manage as it becomes more complicated than CSS.
