    1. 6. Add Purgecss for unused CSS removal (optional) Add Purgecss to Sage. Once you’ve successfully added Purgecss, you will need to complete an addition step to make sure Purgecss can extract Tailwind’s classes properly. Luckily, Tailwind has a guide in their docs to add a custom Purgecss extractor.

      Had problem during purgecss installation in my project. Solved using:

      yarn add --dev purgecss-webpack-plugin@0.23.0 glob-all


      More info: Getting an error regarding webpack, during step 1 of adding purgecss ( https://roots.io/guides/removing-unused-css-with-purgecss-uncss-in-sage/ )

      Solved using the command for yarn as given in here:

      That is :

      yarn add --dev purgecss-webpack-plugin@0.23.0 glob-all

    1. They are often cited as the first website to feature banner ads.

      If, indeed, Wired invented the banner ad, it is also worth mentioning that wired.com was one of the last websites to be rendered completely unusable by them (when it was still running on the old CMS. idk about now.)

      I love @LaurenGoode and find her insight very worthwhile even in this format, but I really wish the platform on which it now resides (Wired's CMS) wasn't *completely* and *entirely* broken. Chorus should've been a package deal. https://t.co/OweeG30jR6

    1. And worst of all, we’ve lost sight of the most salient part about computers: their malleability. We’ve acquiesced the creation of our virtual worlds, where we now spend most of our time, to the select few who can spend the millions to hire enough software engineers. So many of the photons that hit our eyes come from purely fungible pixels, yet for most of us, these pixels are all but carved in stone. Smartphone apps, like the kitchen appliances before them, are polished, single-purposes tools with only the meanest amount of customizability and interoperability. They are monstrosities of code, millions of lines, that only an army of programers could hope to tame. As soon as they can swipe, our children are given magical rectangles that for all their lives will be as inscrutable as if they were truly magic.

      I was a professional web developer for two years and I now have to bring myself to even touch CSS or the DOM. Whenever I have to make anything on the web work I know I'm gonna spend 3 hours in pain for something that should take 5 minutes.

    1. This is the main reason we end up with bloated code bases, full of legacy and unknown CSS that we daren't touch. We lack the confidence to be able to work with and modify existing styles because we fear the consequences of CSS' globally operating and leaky nature. Almost all problems with CSS at scale boil down to confidence (or lack thereof): People don't know what things do any more. People daren't make changes because they don't know how far reaching the effects will be.
    1. The debugger allows you to access the currently selected element in the console as $0 variable.
