I’ve been working through the FCC curriculum, and am currently in the Front End Libraries Project. I’ve just finished the calculator project. Here’s the CodePen. I don’t think I had to use React, but so far I’ve been doing all the Front End Libraries Projects with it—I think I should be trying to do some of these without it, is that a good idea? I feel like I may have over-engineered the logic of the calculator, so that’s what I’m mostly looking to get ideas on.
I also have a question that’s unrelated to that aspect of things. If you look at line 97 of the CSS, I’ve commented out a bunch of
:after classes that put a transparent overlay on the buttons that I intended to use to create the effect of pressing them, but I’m pretty stuck on how to achieve that using React. I wanted to somehow change the
display attribute from
block when they’re clicked. Also, on the CSS side, is there a better way to set all those classes than individually name each of them and append the
:after? Thanks in advance!
