High-level advice and guidelines for writing sane, manageable, scalable CSS.
Some time ago, I published my CSS Guidelines on GitHub. These proved incredibly popular, with thousands of stars, hundreds of forks, and a number of translations. However—as often happens with these kinds of thing—they’re in need of a little bit of spring clean.
I’m going to completely revisit, revise, overhaul, and rewrite the guidelines into a comprehensive version 2.0.0. They will cover new things, they will change old things, and they will be a lot, lot more thorough.

A comprehensive guide by Sebastien Gabriel covering DPI/PPI, resolutions, retina, 4K, monitor hertz, all kinds of platforms and loads of practical tips:
This guide is designed as a “get started” or introductory read for the starting to intermediate designer who wants to learn or get more knowledge about cross-DPI and cross-platform design from the very beginning.
No complex math and un-parsable graph, just straight forward explanations ordered in short sections for you to understand and apply directly to your design process.
Suddenly, the CMS, an often derided but necessary tool of modern journalism, is cool. Vox uses its CMS as a recruiting tool. Google is not-so-secretly building a CMS for the news industry. Times media columnist David Carr recently devoted an entire column to the up-and-coming blogging platform/CMS called Medium, and proclaimed that “the content management system is destiny.”
We couldn’t agree more. Here at The Times, our own CMS, Scoop, is central to our ambitions to innovate on all platforms. It’s also the repository for all the aspirations for what the merging of print and digital journalism may one day become — and many of the frustrations for what it is today.
