The smartest way to handle vendor prefixes is to use tools (Compass, SASS, LESS) and unprefixed state to reduce maintenance cost. Read this and find out why.
Welcome, my friend! You are one of few lucky people who got this, hopefully useful, email.
This is an alpha issue; therefore, expect improvements in next few weeks. If you happen to find any anomalies (typos, broken links, bad renderings, black holes or anything of the sort), please hit the reply button and let me know about it. I’ll be grateful.
Here it is, first time in history, the best of CSS in a past week (or so):
Learn how to create a website that maintains its integrity as a viewport size is reduced to any feasible state.
Overview and comparison of CSS preprocessors. Very useful read (especially if you’re wondering what are differences between various preprocessors).
A new image replacement technique that was recently added to the HTML5 Boilerplate project explained in depth.
CSS3 box shadow thoroughly explained; it quite possibly covers everything you need to know about box-shadow syntax.
Responsive and adaptive design, designing in browser (not Photoshop), mobile first concept – Kev Adamson covers it all.
Don’t let the title mislead you, it’s more about CSS3 than it is about HTML5.
Until next week
Alright, this was (obviously) the first issue of CSS Weekly. I hope that you’ve liked it (or at least didn’t hate it). Comments are massively appreciated.
Expect beta version in your mailbox sometime next week.
