Transforms allow us to create effects and interactions that are otherwise impossible. When combined with transitions and animations, we can create elements and interfaces that rotate, dance, and zoom. In this piece, we'll look at 2D transform functions.
We’ll now look at two methodologies for naming things in CSS: Block-Element-Modifier (better known as BEM) and Atomic CSS.
CSS also provides selectors for matching elements based on their position in the document subtree. These are known as child–indexed pseudo-classes.
Let’s take a look at some pseudo-classes that are specific to form fields and form field input. These pseudo-classes can be used to style fields
The CSS Pseudo-elements Module Level 4 specification clarifies behavior for existing pseudo-elements and defines several new ones. Only a few, however, have any degree of support in current browsers. Those are the ones we’ll talk about in this article.
