CSSBattle | #29 Suffocate

Welcome to CSSBattle Challenges!

In this short article, I go through my solution for CSSBattle - #29 Suffocate challenge. Please refer to the code snippet below to get a better insight into my thought processes and the implementation detail.


Challenge:

Suffocate Challenge


Solution:

<div class="container">
  <div class="transparent-square">
    <div class="circle top-left"></div>
    <div class="circle top-right"></div>
    <div class="circle bottom-left"></div>
    <div class="circle bottom-right"></div>
  </div>
</div>
<style>
  * {
    padding: 0;
    margin: 0;
    box-sizing: border-box;
  }
  .circle {
    width: 200px;
    height: 200px;
    border-radius: 50%;
  }
  .container {
    background: #f3ac3c;
    width: 100vw;
    height: 100vh;
    position: relative;
  }
  .transparent-square {
    width: 200px;
    height: 200px;
    background: #1a4341;
    position: relative;
    top: 50%;
    left: 50%;
    transform: translate(-50%, -50%);
    overflow: hidden;
  }
  .top-left,
  .top-right,
  .bottom-left,
  .bottom-right {
    background: #f3ac3c;
    position: absolute;
  }
  .top-left {
    transform: translate(-50%, -50%);
  }
  .top-right {
    transform: translate(50%, -50%);
  }
  .bottom-left {
    transform: translate(-50%, 50%);
  }
  .bottom-right {
    transform: translate(50%, 50%);
  }
</style>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Key Takeaway(s):

  • using different shapes around an element to shape the center element, for example, we surrounded 4 circles around the diamond square to create its shape

As always, I welcome any feedback or questions regarding the implementation detail of the challenge. Otherwise, I hope this was useful!
