Another week, another newsletter. Let’s get to it!

Around the Web permalink

  • If you’re looking for a new font, check out Atkinson Hyperlegible from the Braille Institute. Hat tip to Chris Griffing for this find.
  • Remix 1.6 just dropped. TLDR; lots of stable CSS features goodness: CSS Modules, Vanilla Extract, CSS Side-Effect Imports, Tailwind. Also, improvements to hot module reloading (HMR) and hot data reloading (HDR).
  • Behold the power of view transistions. Chris Coyier drops a simple and elegant example to convey their power.
  • What’s new in CSS and UI: I/O 2023 Edition is a recap of all the latest CSS goodness we have now like :has(), container queries, etc.
  • It’s not tech related, but I’m loving this book from Rick Rubin and I’ve only just started.

Fun Stuff permalink

I attended Remix Conf this week. Lots of great talks, but my favourite one was a demo of an online piano and how to build it with progressive enhancement in mind. It was a fun interactive demo unleashing all the goodness people have come to love using Remix.
