Using precompiler languages, such as Pug and Sass, is a straightforward way to write frontend code that is clean, extendable, abstracted, and DRY. But to do all that, you need a build step. Or do you?
In this talk, Lemon will demonstrate how to use a precompiler without EVER touching the command line, and then we’re gonna start working on some extendable Pug and Sass to keep your code looking 😍.
The first part here is to introduce people briefly to the idea of a precompiler, and examples of reasons why you might want one.
Then we move into an example of the Grunt/Gulp build step, before offering a UI interface (in this case Prepros/Codekit) as another way of doing this.
Once we have the environment explored, we start looking at some useful mixins, extends and imports. We’ll compare some file sizes and visual layouts, building a webpage which is nice to look at AND ships a minimal amount of code to the browser.
With a day job as the development lead for a mid-sized Minneapolis agency, Lemon spends his work time making websites for money and his free time making websites for no money.
He's created over a dozen gimmick sites like damn.dog, pretend.world and greatsex.tips. He also hosts a podcast that looks at some of the internet's weirder subcultures. It is not safe for your work, unless you work somewhere really cool.
