Menus with “Dynamic Hit Areas”

Flyout menus! The second you need to implement a menu that uses a hover event to display more menu items, you’re in tricky territory. For one, they should work with clicks and taps, too. Without that, you’ve broken the menu for anyone without a mouse. That doesn’t mean you can’t also use :hover. When you use a hover state to reveal more content, that means an un-hovering state needs to hide them. Therein lies the problem. The problem is that if a submenu pops out somewhere on hover, getting your mouse over to it might involve moving it along...

Tips for rolling your own lazy loading

You may have heard (or even issued the call) that “we can just use lazy loading!” when looking for a way to slim down a particularly heavy web page. Lazy loading is a popular technique for gradually requesting images as they come into view, rather than all at once after the HTML of the page has been parsed. It can reduce the initial page weight, and help us hit our performance budgets by requesting images when they’re needed. It can be effective. But it also comes with some baggage of its own. We’ll get to that! In fact, Rahul...

The (Developer’s) Growth Model

I really like the post “The Designer’s Growth Model” by Dennis Hambeukers. Dennis just invented this model, but it’s based on some existing ideas and it all rings true for me. Let me try to summarize the five stages as he lays them out for designers. Producers: You learn how to design. You learn fundamentals, you practice, you get good at doing design work and producing beautiful functional things. Then you have this “crisis” moment before the next stage where you find you can’t do enough work on your own and that you need to be able to scale...

Which CSS IS AWESOME makes the most sense if you don’t know CSS well?

Peter-Paul posted this question: Which of the examples in the image do you consider correct? If you know CSS well, don’t reply, just retweet. If you don’t know CSS too well, please reply to the poll in the next tweet. pic.twitter.com/4bgnf9Wdkc — ppk 🇪🇺 (@ppk) June 17, 2019 Note the interesting caveat: only vote in the poll if you don’t know CSS well. The winning answer was D! You gotta wonder if the result would have been different if the request for non-CSS experts wasn’t there. I like to think I know CSS OK, so I didn’t vote. My brain goes like this: I think he’s asking “by default,” so the answer may assume there’s no other CSS doing anything to that text. I wish I knew why the box was that particular width, but I guess I’ll just assume it’s a set width. It’s not B because ellipsis stuff requires extra stuff, and doesn’t work on multiple lines like that — unless we’re talking line clamping, which is even weirder. It’s not C because that requires hiding overflow which is never really a default — that is, except off the top and left of the browser window, I guess. Or in an iframe. It’s not D because words just don’t break like that unless you do pretty specific stuff. A actually makes decent sense. It’s weird to look...
