Susy Next, Alpha 4

Susy Next alpha 4 is now available.

I don’t have a lot of time to delve, but let me run through some of the changes and new features in Susy Next alpha 4 – as well as alpha 3, which never got a blog post. You can see the full list of changes in the Susy Next Changelog, and we’ll work on examples as we start writing docs.

If you haven’t already started using a Susy Next alpha, read the alpha 2 introduction first to get a sense of the new syntax and approach.

In addition to the new features, we’ve added comprehensive unit test tests using True, which we built for the occasion. We also have a set of complex nesting tests that show how things work in practice. Right now, the test folder provides the best documentation – with index.html showing the True results and ag.html showing several standard grid-types. Explore, download, and play!

    Not All Zeros are Equal

    And every ‘best practice’ comes with caveats

    There’s a well-established ‘best practice’ that CSS authors (as well as linters and minifiers) should remove units from any 0 value. It’s a fine rule in most cases, but there are a few common situations where it will break your code.
