Great list. Big fan of all of these sites. The only bummer is that CSS-Tricks is dead in the water at this point. Digital Ocean bought the site a while back and then totally bailed on supporting it.

Looking over at it now it appears like there’s a new post for the first time in a year so maybe they’re finally putting some resources into it.

Still, all the old material is high quality. It would be a shame though for it to continue to get more and more out of date.

Indeed, it's disappointing to see CSS-Tricks struggle after the acquisition. Hopefully, with recent activity, there's a chance for revitalization. The existing content remains valuable despite the challenges it faces.
