6 Common SVG Fails (and How to Fix Them)

I have been a developer for close to a decade now and SVG was largely a mystery to me still, until I read this article.

While the article explains the most common pitfalls to dealing with SVG, they also say why they are an issue by explaining some of the core SVG functionality, like the viewBox property, width and height attributes, and even namespaces. Overall I learned quite a bit from it!

I had this website on my backlog for so long that they have had a few design iterations and the latest one is just beautiful! I think this is one of the best uses of text gradients (both linear and radial) I have seen in a while. And better yet, it's all made with Tailwind!

Twind has been on my radar for a while and I saw they reached a stable release at the end of last year so I wanted to share it with you.

Quoting their docs:

Twind is a small compiler (~13kB) that converts Tailwind utility classes into CSS at runtime. The goal of this project is to unify the flexibility of CSS-in-JS with the carefully considered constraints of the Tailwind API.

I particularly like the "no build step" feature and I urge you to take a look at the project, even if its to learn something new šŸ™‚
