SUIT CSS naming convention for React.js application

Recently CSS has got a lot of negativity. But I would like to defend it and show, that with good naming convention CSS works pretty well.

My 3 developers team has just developed React.js application with 6561 lines of CSS (and just 5 !important). During one year of development we had 0 issues with CSS. No refactoring typos, no style leaks, no performance problems, possibly, it is the most stable part of our application.

Here are main principles we use to write CSS for modern (IE11+) browsers:

  • SUIT CSS naming conventions + SUIT CSS design principles;
  • PostCSS + CSSNext. Future CSS syntax like variables, nesting, and autoprefixer are good enough;
  • Flexbox is awesome. No need for grid framework;
  • No DRY. It does not scale with CSS, just focus on better components;
  • Normalize.css, base styles and variables are solid foundation for all components;

Please ⭐️ this gist if you'd like to support me and hear this ⚡️ talk on Reactiveconf 2016 in Bratislava.
