  • Posted to CSS4 should have nesting., Dec 15, 2015
    1. “CSS4” isn’t really a thing. The CSS spec works in modules, each with their own independent levels. So filter, for example, is part of the Filter Effects Module Level 1, and box-shadow is part of CSS Backgrounds and Borders Module Level 3
    2. Specification for native CSS nesting is being drafted and is likely to become official spec judging by the popularity/demand for it. CSS specs only move forward with interest and support from web developers. You can even Tweet at the CSS Working Group to let them know you want nested selectors.

  • Posted to Show DN: Scooter—Dropbox’s (S)CSS framework, in reply to Travis Terwilligar , Nov 05, 2015

    They are pretty verbose, but they’re designed to be purposefully very easy to understand in terms of responsibility and relation to other elements.

    It’s also worth noting that at Dropbox, at least, many of these classes are rarely/ever seen by developers—we’re building a suite of React components so that engineers don't have to think about markup. For example, the API for a grid with two half-width columns would become something like this: https://gist.github.com/daneden/217d4f7ceeb76d4416e3

    No surprise here. Storage is expensive.

    This is a huge gesture. Thanks for stepping up, Andrew and everyone else at DN—it’s my hope that conversations surrounding these issues and more continue to happen in this community, and it’s reassuring that the people at the headwaters recognize the importance of this.

    Serious, honest answer: I don’t know. I don’t suspect it was at all intentional, and I won’t pretend to know how women seeing the OP feel (though I could makeaneducatedguess). What I do know is that it’s easy to overlook something like this, but that it’s exactly these kinds of events and decisions that compound over time and cause systemic inequality.

    Not even close.

    What I love is informed, mature discussion of and concern with these issues. Sure, I’m snarky and a little fire-and-brimstone about it on Twitter, but I think it’s important to address issues like this, bring them to the attention of those running our communities, and try to scrutinize the aspects of our community and industry that have led to serious (if often unconscious) bias towards cis, hetero, white men (like lil' old me).

    Just so we’re all clear and on the same page, the original and intended title of this post is:

    “Instead of buying a men’s shirt you’ll eventually throw out, put $30 here.”

    Thanks, DN mods, for pissing me off twice today!

    Canned/here’s-one-I-made-earlier response:

    Offering only men’s shirt sizes perpetuates (on varying levels of awareness/consciousness) the idea of this community—and the Design community at large—as one where men are at a higher natural advantage.

    This is punctuated further by the post’s language (“original, limited edition”), putting emphasis on the available privilege. A misstep by the DN community managers.
