This AMA session is over but you can still ask questions to Eric A. Meyer on their Hashnode profile.
Hey Eric. There's a lot of divergent work in organizing CSS right now, such as BEM, SMACSS, Inline Styles, CSS-in-JS, ITCSS, and Atomic CSS. Still, there are not a lot of conceptual design patterns for how to organize your CSS (if you're using stylesheets) in an efficient and scalable way. Meanwhile, design patterns in JS, Java, and PHP such as Flux/Redux, MVC, and functional programming are now the way of things. Do you see a way forward for design patterns for how to organize CSS in stylesheets utilizing the core features of CSS? Are there any promising organizational patterns out there that might not be as well known? Thanks.
Nice to see you here. :) I am your huge fan. Congrats for the success of Designing For Real Life.
It's strange no one has asked you questions related to CSS Frameworks so far. What are your thoughts on frameworks like Bootstrap, Foundation, etc? Do you use them or recommend them?
Hey Eric! :)
Which do you think has influenced CSS specs more in the last few years: engagement between working groups and developers, or industry trends like CSS preprocessors illustrating demand for features? (Or has something else entirely been the biggest driver?)
