The differences between CSS and Sass Nesting

Now that CSS nesting has a lot of browser support more and more people are using it but many do not know that there are key differences from the Sass implementation. This video from Kevin Powell explains exactly that in a concise way with great examples.

Typographic Hierarchies

I feel typography stuff is kind of like its own world in web design and a lot of that niche knowledge leaks into frontend development work, like the typography hierarchy concept example. This article has no code examples but it's an amazing resource to learn about why hierarchies exist in typography and why it's widely used even in Tailwind CSS.

I don't usually tend to share tips in tweet form bu this one is so good I had to do it. It turns out the formula for awesome nested rounded corners is very simple math!

šŸ’… Showcase


Resend is another developer-focused product and its landing page looks like something the Tailwind Labs team would design, yes it's that good. I find the truly dark theme very elegant and the shadow effects look stunning!

Tailwind CSS list of classes is almost 1:1 with CSS properties, but for some very niche stuff, you can either write your own custom CSS or depend on plugins. This is the case for 3D transforms in Tailwind and luckily for us, this plugin fills exactly that gap. One thing I really liked its its exhaustive documentation, not many plugins have that to its highly appreciated!
