I've been busy with some other projects, but today I finally released a new Dashboard version 🔥
@celia "My markup has become gory and unreadable. I’d like to simplify it and make sense of it at first glance."
Interestingly, your argument for dropping functional CSS is the same argument I have for using it in the first place - "making sense at first glance". When I see a semantic ".post-header", I know what it is supposed to be. But I have no idea about the styling, so I need to take a second glance into the stylesheet.
@celia "I have to wait for the developers to add support for CSS features"
I see Tailwind as an addition to my existing styles. It's an abstraction that creates all the utility classes that I need. If something is missing, I just add the classes manually. In the end, functional CSS isn't bound to any framework.
After reading a tip from Stefan Judis about running shell examples with a leading $, here's my take from developer perspective: https://darekkay.com/tips/copy-shell-commands/
@floppy Here are the examples for some contex (with no annotations, yet): https://darekkay.github.io/presentations/accessible-web/resources/index.html
The "wrong headline order" is a technical issue. In this example, we've got H1 and H2 headlines, and those cards use H5.
"Non-descriptive link text" is about using "read more..." links. For screen reader users, this is an issue, because they could TAB through the website and all they hear is "Read more link. Read more link. Read more link.". See the accessible version for a better solution

Okay, so do I click the button to turn "Auto Forward" on or off? Toggle buttons without a clear on/off state are confusing your users (the white color is just the hover state) #ux
A low text contrast often means a bad user experience. Here's an approach for designing and structuring color palettes so that we can prevent contrast ratio issues before they arise. #accessibility #a11y
I didn't expect thousands of downloads for my 6-year-old just for fun #IntelliJ plugin, let alone people creating pull requests 💖
But here we are: you can now get "valuable" commit messages through proxy connections: https://plugins.jetbrains.com/plugin/7536-what-the-commit
