Hi, after quite some time away from freecodecamp while I waited for the new curriculum, I’ve just finished redoing my tribute page using some of the new stuff I learned:
I’d appreciate some feedback on what worked well and what didn’t! Tried a lot of new things here, and I’m sure some of them are still rough around the edges.
Things I learned:
- CSS variables are ! It’s incredibly useful to get some of these features that were previously the domain of preprocessors inside CSS itself. I think I’ll be using them in pretty much everything I build from now on.
- flexbox will replace floats for me for just about everything. Was curious about CSS Grid, but didn’t seem necessary for my purposes here
- Jumping to an anchor in the same page when you have a fixed navbar is a surprisingly difficult problem! By default, the anchor would be covered by the navbar. All the CSS-only solutions I found either messed up my spacing, or worked only if I had an
<a />anchor with visible content in it, not to just any old id. So I had to resort to jQuery, which I’d have preferred to avoid.
