I'm a Frontend Web Developer and I Rarely Write CSS Anymore
I love writing CSS. One of the best things I know is getting a new design and spend time implementing it. But I rarely get to do that anymore.
As soon as you try more complex things you run into obstacles. Floating and negative margins are often used to fix things. Developers get angry, saying that CSS is a crappy way to do things, and it might well not be the optimal way. But still, I think that some of the problems lies in the fact that since it seems so easy at first glance, many don’t bother learning it for real.
But I have noticed in the last few month or year that the amount of CSS that I’m writing has decreased enormously. Great, and sad, I say. Great beacuse you have some sort of base to build upon and use complete components from. Before you hade to write it all yourself, but with the advent of frameworks, internal as well as external, comes using already written stuff. Many times this is great, you have some sort of baseline and don’t have to reinvent the wheel over and over again.
But still, I miss it.
