What should you do if you need a smaller button style whenever those buttons are placed in the header? Do you make a new class or a new custom button modifier? Harry Roberts tackles this problem in the following post on modifying components when they're inside another component:

You get an email from someone you've never met (poor communication skills, but a decent idea) and they want to cut you in and give you control over a new web company they want to start. Do you:
Eduardo Boucas has a clever workaround though. Use media queries to force the font-size back into a set pixel value when the viewport has gotten to the breakpoints at which those min/max values would be exceeded. He's got a Sass mixin to help with the …
Imagine a button. Gosh I love buttons. So useful. We first think of a button in it's default state. It looks nice and button-like, ready to be clicked. That's one state. In CSS, we often think of some more:
From the grand archives of "Things Chris was totally confused about for far too long and now half understands so might as well blog it": code golf. I would hear someone say something like "I got it down that small from my own golf." I would squint, confused, and just let it pass because it didn't seem important enough to ask about. Slang for "work", perhaps, or "tinkering".
I got to watch Lea Verou release this right on stage at CSS Conf like a total baller. There are a surprising number of practical (and fun) use cases for it.
Companies make multi-year investments in technology and will stick to their stack for quite some time. So as much as you think that everyone scraps their current setup for a shiny new framework every 6 months, it isn't the case at all.

I just ran into a situation where I had a title that was split into two sections. The main title, big and bold, left-aligned like any regular title. But then a bit of a subtitle, right-aligned, sitting on the same line as the title. When there is room for that, it's great. But of course text is always changing and the space you have available is variable. Let's take a look.
Divi 2.4 has pushed the envelope of design and functionality even further, solidifying Divi's position as Elegant Themes' flagship theme, as well as being one of the all-time most popular responsive WordPress themes. New and exciting features …
I also wanted to write this because it's a common point of contention. Different teams I work with prefer to integrate content management systems at different points in the process. There's nothing inherently wrong with one approach over another, but it is a good …
Slow SQL queries can crush your WordPress site's performance. Sometimes, slow queries are a result of poorly-formed SQL that never should have been done that way. And sometimes, slow queries were actually fast queries at one point—but as the site grew older, the query got slower and slower, unable to keep up with the expanding database.
There are 11 million professional software developers on earth, according to the research firm IDC. (An additional 7 million are hobbyists.) That's roughly the population of the greater Los Angeles metro area. Imagine all of L.A. programming. East Hollywood would be for Mac programmers, West L.A. for mobile, Beverly Hills for finance programmers, and all of Orange County for Windows.
Louis Lazaris does a peak into the future of selectors (most of these aren't very well supported yet). Some of them I've seen and played with (e.g. :valid), and some were totally new to me (e.g. :focus-within which selects an input in focus and also the parent element).
