Code Rush

with Jay & Rob

Episode 14: Em vs ch, pseudo alt text, animating summary/details, mechanical keyboards, repeating gradients

Three minutes of Indiana Jones chat followed by ems vs ch units—we know how to bring in the New Year! Webkit has introduced alt text for pseudo-elements. The summary/details element may soon be animatable. Jay documents his journey into the world of mechanical keyboards. We debate CSS grid strategy. Sketch/Figma debate. We ponder the maybe little-known art of repeating gradients in CSS.
