re: Tachyons, the best library you're not using. VIEW POST


For me what happened was, I ended up creating my own functional CSS framework before I even knew the existence of tachyons or others. It seemed the natural evolution of doing fast, visually accurate, bug free, easily maintainable and extendable websites. I am ready to prove this to any disbeliever by a real life coding challenge any time/any day. The only reason this is not a standard is the dogmatism of some so-called "semantic" evangelists like Zeldman etc who would essentially be without a job without it. They spent years to convince everyone that every class name you choose has to "mean something" only to realize there was no real world business or technical value of having semantic class names in your HTML. ( because we already have aside,nav,main and soon will have web components).


Love the fire! Do you host the code of that library on GitHub? Would love to see your take. I started doing the same, but after a while it felt kind of like "why the hell am I doing this?".
