We keep thinking we can write better CSS if we just try harder, that the next site will be clean and stay that way. This presentation shows that in fact, messy CSS is the direct result of our worst best-practices. We need to reexamine those assumptions with an eye to practicality and scalability as well as accessibility, standards, and fabulous design.

  • tottys TT TY CSS is very messy even if you organize the code in the best possible way. Cross browser problems also arise in development. BUT did you know that JS can do everything that CSS do and HTML does? you can generate CSS+HTML at runtime in a high level that you don't even write a string of HTML or CSS, you only use JS objects, it's fast, better code and more manageable that using 3 languages (HTML, CSS and JS). No JS framework based on this exists, even Dojo and YUI still thinks that writing JS modules in JS that generate low level HTML and maintain a different CSS file for all CSS stuff it's the way, it even do searches in the document to make it work. That is not the way to DO WEB APPLICATIONS. This is what motivates me in building a JS framework based only on JS no CSS and no HTML.. If someone want to help get in contact and read something about: http://www.slideshare.net/tottys/web-application-with-just-javasc and http://www.slideshare.net/tottys/dont-code-crap-in-2012-architecture-future 2 years ago
