    This is weird.

    Shameless Self Promotion: Waveguide has a saving feature that allows you to collect all the landing pages, mobile landing pages, app screenshots, and patterns we post. When you save something, you can grab the color palette and see some of the particular details of each saved item.

    In a "huge" application probably it makes sense to have everything in a Properties Bundle using a .properties file or a JSON or XML.

    Doc writers and designers can access those files and make the commits to change the strings / localize / correct etc.

    This is how large companies deal with UI Copy Text if you were wondering.

    Netflix wrote a blog post about their own workflow to handle UI strings for internationalization:

  • Posted to Tailwind: style your site without writing any CSS!, in reply to Adam Fisher-Cox , Nov 03, 2018

    I see why you would think this is maintainability nightmare, but it really isn't, especially if you're rendering from the server. You can have very organized logic for all your styles and still have all the control of the CSS without ever leaving our templates. Besides that, this is the purest form of CSS because you know everything is being applied in a pseudo-inline style, which means you get the benefits of the specificity without losing control of the global styles. You can always override any class and get that globally applied to all your website.

    It's a different mindset, but I found it incredibly useful and liberating.

    On the other hand, I have never tested this at semi-large scale so I don't know if this really scales, but CSS is horrible to maintain at larger scales anyways (regardless the approach).

    I agree. Tachyons is the best functional CSS framework out there. You also get used to the nomenclature very fast so it's pretty easy to just create an extend.css stylesheet to address use cases that tachyons don't cover. Like if you need a something between "w3" and "w4, you can easily just write a "w3half" class that has a custom width that is equivalent to 3 and 1/2 width, and you will remember that forever.

    I disagree with this. Twitter is no Instagram. People use it as a way to express opinions, not showcasing lifestyles. This has been proven to the extent that many trading platforms use Twitter as a data point and there are some algorithmic traders that use it as an input to make automated trade decisions. This includes Bloomberg, the biggest trading information system in the world.

    I can't comment on this implementation, but there's definitely valuable societal data in Twitter.

    Hey Lewis. Amazing list! Bookmarked. I love that you went for a straight-forward layout instead of adding unnecessary complexity that other people add to similar websites... By the way. Would you consider adding my website: Waveguide - I try my best to share valuable knowledge and design examples, so I hope it fits your criteria. Either way. Great job! Keep it up!

    Yes. That's true. It's limited to specific use cases.
