CSS Styling Guidelines

CSS Styling Guidelines

  • Use rem units for font-size and line-height.
    • The user preferences are respected.
    • We can change the apparent px value of rem to whatever we'd like.
  • Use px, % or vw for layout purposes.
    • For example, when using margin, padding, width, height, etc.
    • Easier to implement design requirements.
    • Why not rem here as well?
      • Layout can break when changing the base browser font-size.

trailingComma: es5 (default)

When set to none...

  • Often forgetting to add a comma when adding entries to an Object.
  • Commenting a property in an object currently removes the comma from the property above it.
  • Moving the last property of an object up requires an extra step to add a comma at the end.
  • Messes up Git diff and sometimes creates conflicts.

  • Can pass data to the page component as props.
  • In development runs on every request
