Sass Toolkits, Live Q&A

I did a live Q&A at SitePoint talking about:

  • Customizing Susy for your projects
  • Other ways to do layouts (and why you might not even need a toolkit)
  • How to select a toolkit, or build your very own!

To be clear: now that we have border-box sizing, grid math can be much simpler. Complex math is only required if you are using margin-based gutters. Move your gutters into padding, and the math is simple. That’s why I don’t use Susy (or any grid system) much any more. percentage(1/5) works great in Sass - and flexbox takes care of the rest.

You can read a summary of the conversation as well – but it leaves out some good bits. ;)

    What is one thing you learned about building websites this year?” I’ve always enjoyed the CSS art people create, but I’ve never ventured into it much myself. I’m familiar with many of the tricks involved, but still find it surprising every time: the way people are able to…
