Just another WordPress development blog.
What’s the value in using and contributing to an open source project? Well beyond the price, it’s really quite remarkable.
Getting going with a Git workflow can be a bit of a challenge at first. So here’s how I set up my projects to help get you started.
Looking to fix problems with losing code either through losing files or it getting written over by other team members? You should look into using Git.
There are so many web development frameworks that it can be difficult to figure out where you should start. But the basics are always the right place to begin learning.
Google Chrome is about to start penalizing sites that don’t have HTTPS at the start of their URLs. So your site is going to need it. Plus, it’s good for your visitors.
Need to make a quick change on your site, but don’t know what specific element to call? The inspector tools in the browser will be able to help you out.
In the final tutorial on npm, Gulp and SCSS, we finally get to the fun part. SCSS is an amazing tool that makes writing CSS much better and quicker. And you won’t want to go back to normal CSS again.
So as we continue to learn how to compile SCSS/SASS into CSS, we now stumble upon Gulp. And this is how we ultimately compile our CSS together for the browser to read.
CSS is tedious and boring to write. But SCSS makes styling life so, so much easier; however, you need to compiling it. So, in our effort to learn SCSS, we first must learn about npm.
One of the best things I learned when taking CS classes at the University of Texas was that we are not coders or programmers; we are problem solvers. And that’s a great way to look at it.
