Hello folks!

Short intro this week my friends, we got our usual menu of news, articles, a showcase, and a cool resource. I hope you like it 😄.

🌟 News

Steve announced a few days ago that the Tailwind Labs team is working on a new template for agencies and it looks awesome! Here's a sneak peek:

Adam has also been tweeting about a possible in-person event the team might be planning. I'm crossing my fingers that it's close enough for me to attend 🤞🏻.

Level Up Your VS Code Workflow: Start Using Profiles

I feel like every developer I know uses VS Code as their daily driver and I can't blame them, its plugin and theme ecosystem is vibrant. But sometimes those plugins conflict with each other or make the editor a bit slow. That's where creating profiles for different use cases can help and this video tells you all about it.

The wasted potential of CSS attribute selectors

I absolutely love attribute selectors and wish more people used them. Even in Tailwind CSS, by using its arbitrary variant feature, you can use attribute selectors and they can be very powerful for specific use cases, like UI state management, which is the main use case the post showcases. Overall, a great piece that may open your eyes to the power of attribute selectors.  

CSS Blend Modes

This interactive tutorial teaches you the basics of CSS blend modes in a very visual way. I particularly loved their duotone and halftone examples, very creative.

💅 Showcase

Skiff

This site got on my radar recently and wow was I impressed! The colors, the screenshots, and the animations are all beautiful and elegant. They even have their own font! If this is their marketing landing page then I would love to see what they did for their product UI 😍.

🎁 Resource

SupportsCSS

This is a brand new JS library that offers live, in-browser detection of modern CSS support for selectors, features, and at-rules. It claims to be inspired by Modernizr but goes way beyond it and the capabilities of @supports. Overall, if you're on the cutting edge and need CSS feature detection for progressive enhancements then you'll love this tool.
