Sandrina: CSS Guidelines by Harry Roberts

Visit CSS Guidelines by Harry Roberts

High-level advice and guidelines for writing sane, manageable, scalable CSS. This will help you to write readable and reusable CSS.

CSS can get messy. If you have worked through some of the projects mentioned above or some of your own, you will realize how hard it becomes to keep an overview of all your styles. The worst part? There are no strictly enforced practices like it is common in many other languages.

The CSS guidelines course shows you a bit of advice on writing manageable CSS that is maintainable and readable.
