Last Friday, we learned how to utilize a tool called Zen-Coding to rapidly speed up our development time when creating mark-up. In today’s Plus video tutorial, we’re going to take another huge leap forward, specifically with CSS, where I’ll show you how to utilize a different tool, called “Scaffold,” created by Anthony Short.
This will allow you to use variables, functions (mix-ins), for statements, and to even create grids on the fly with ease! I promise you that, if you’re mildly familiar with PHP, this will drastically change – and improve – the way you code your CSS! Become a Premium member to watch!
Learn How to…
- Create CSS variables/constants
- Create grids – of any size you like
- Use functions or mix-ins
- Automatically minify the generated CSS file.
- Combine multiple stylesheets into one, to save on HTTP requests.
- Dramatically improve your development time.
