It's still early into 2019, and it looks like a promising year for the growth of front-end programming. In this post, I'll list out 5 things I've been reading up on recently and seeing the community talk about.
2. CSS Animations
I have seen more and more tutorials and awesome examples on the web of CSS only animations and creative CSS drawings.
Built with combinations of border-radius, box-shadow, transform, linear-gradient, radial-gradients, and overflow we are so close to making complex designs easier.
3. Grid vs Flexbox
Instead of putting them against each other we are moving towards a more co-existing relationship. Knowing when to use each of them is where we want to be.
4. The Rise of Vue.js with React and Angular Still At It
React still has a much larger share of the market, but Vue.js is still rise and certainly shows no sign of stopping. In fact, Vue has already overtaken its rival for certain metrics such as total GitHub stars.
5. CSS Variables
Where has this been and its progress. I've been waiting for this and have been using SASS and other processors to achieve this.
