It is unlikely that you and I are going to blast off to Mars or the Moon on a Spacex Starship anytime soon ever, so we better turn our gaze towards another frontier of technology:
Let’s take a look at how we could use the new powers of CSS to write modern web applications of 2020 and beyond, here on Earth.
On this post, we will revisit the basics of a webpage, i.e. HTML & CSS, and develop a clean intelligent and maintainable CSS framework from scratch. I have named our new CSS framework Toucaan and you can join me on the journey of building it together.
Qualitatively speaking the intent of Toucaan is to weed out all the unwanted CSS that a framework doesn’t need anymore. It is a deep-dive into the core properties of CSS standards in a bid to discover new and useful patterns according to the new landscape of the web.
Who knows we might even identify a few industry-wide antipatterns in the process and we can address those with a few suggestions as we go about building Toucaan ground up.
