In a conversation with Dan Wilson a little bit ago, we were talking about how cool filter is, but it’s weird how you can’t use the powers of filter for background images.Typically “marching ants” is something you’d see in like Photoshop when selecting a part of an image.But here Maxim Leyzerovich pulls it off using some very simple but deceptively clever styles.Steve Gardner nails the happy positivity of Bob making him to the do the cheezy dance that defines the 2010’s.If grayscale is what you are after, you could use a color blend mode on an image sitting over a flat black color.

As much as I love all the artistic exploration on CodePen (and I lovvve it), the performance-focused, layout-loving, front-end developer nerd in me really likes technology exploration Pens like this one by Eric Portis.It works by either having the widths of the elements effectively 0, and allowing them to grow to fill the horizontal row, or a super large number forcing each element onto a new line, making a vertical row.So like a very basic element query, which everyone wants.If you want to peak at how the sizing is calculated, I’d encourage you to peak in the Firefox DevTools to see.[Review Exchange Delta]

Dan Wilson got even more explorative in this Pen, with layering images, gradients, and colors and allowing someone playing around with this to change the colors and blending applied.[Bootcamp 2019 SoftTeco8217s At Java Developer]

In perusing mine recently, along with the fact that our Top Hearted to 2018 recently dropped, had me thinking I should do another post about my personal favorites! Here they are!

See the Pen Bob Ross Doing the Floss, Like a Boss (Pure CSS) by Steve Gardner (@ste-vg) on CodePen.

Yuan Chuan is always so impressive to me, first because they are so prolific (so many demos!), and second because they basically invented a way to fuel that prolific nature: the <css-doodle /> web component!  It’s essentially a meta language combining styling information and custom functions that help out with that styling.I also recently learned that ol’ Bob was probably also popular at least in part to him being so good for ASMR, a rather strange tingly calming phenomenon that has gotten extra big on YouTube lately.[Continues China More Expansion Next Uber Cities Month Adds 18]

See the Pen Multiple Backgrounds, Multiple Blend Modes by Dan Wilson (@danwilson) on CodePen.

.You can click that little heart button on any Pen (or Project, Collection, or Post) on CodePen to show the creator a little love, but you can click it again and again to heart it just that little bit more.Say you want to grayscale a background, but not grayscale the whole element (which might do things like turn your blue links gray).<img intrinsicsize> is a brand new HTML attribute that is starting to ship experimentally that has the power and potential to solve image loading jankiness, which is a big damn deal if you ask me.[Management PaperContract Eliminating]

Julia Muzafarova does absolutely outstanding animated scenes with an amazing amount of care and detail.There is little things in here like needing to double the width of the outside stroke to deal with the fact that strokes straddle the lines they create and so when you use coordinates like 0,0, you’re going to face half that stoke being cut off.

And speaking of layout loving exploration, Heydon Pickering recently published a damn interesting technique with flexbox where a row of items can instantly flip from a horizontal row to a vertical row at the pixel width of the parent element you want (rather than rely on a document level media query).There is another perhaps even cleaner way, and that’s using background-blend-mode and multiple background images.Less so a UI pattern on the web.It gets calculated into the algorithms-that-be for popularity, and also, you can see items you’ve loved at the different levels.[Trivia More Switch Round Town And 2019 Besides Summer Up GDC Much]

I think this classic UI pattern is a fascinating thing to try to pull off on the web.

Did you know you can triple-heart things on CodePen? We’ve had that little not-so-hidden feature forever.That’s useful for a couple of reasons.This one is great because it’s so many different scenes in one! But it’s so hard to pick a favorite so definitely go browse her profile for others.
