Kind of far-fetched, but hey: years ago I saw a web page which was plain HTML (ie. without CSS), and step by step it was turned into something beautiful and readable with a few CSS rules (adding margins, increasing font size, that kind of basic typography stuff). I seem to recall it was meant to teach both basic CSS and basic typography.
Does anyone have a link or remember anything about the title or the author, so I can find it? I just find random CSS tutorials.
It does have some of the things I was looking for, so partial success I guess 😅
Maybe I remember wrong, but I seem to recall the site I want to find let you see every step of the way, see the effects of every CSS rule.
@ben Indeed it's not, but thanks for the link!
@estebanm hmm, maybe the variants of "motherfucking website"? (not linking because search results will do better than a link here)
@estebanm Interested to know what this site is! Hopefully someone out there knows!
@estebanm oh nice! gotta read this :)) thanks!
@Tak No, I don't think so. It's certainly not that site specifically, and I don't think it was a site "solving" the Zen Garden thing...
@estebanm I remember seeing this, but I didn't save the link! Don't know how to dig it back up, or what it was called.
@vinnl It wasn't it, but this is really cool, thanks!
@zzz Actually the one I'm looking for is very similar to this, but I don't think it's the same. I do remember the result of the other one to be much prettier, somehow.
Or maybe it was this one and I misremembered. In any case, this is really cool, thanks!
@zzz Oh yes, thank you very much, this was the article that came to my mind when I read the original toot, but I couldn't recall its location, and I regreted I didn't bookmark it, thanks to you I can now !
@estebanm something like this?
@syrinx Kind of. The one I'm thinking of modified the page _itself_, it wasn't just an article describing what you can do to other pages.
But this is pretty cool, thanks!
@sheogorath It wasn't it, but this is cool, too, thanks!
@estebanm dang, I remember that! No idea who did that. I feel like it was someone well known and it was connected to a talk of some kind.
@estebanm this was the one I hade seen but couldn’t find again to send it to you. Now I’ve bookmarked it!
@estebanm yes! Very similar. Not a hard "the same" but maybe this is a later version?
The context of a book would match my vague memory of this being for a talk of some kind.
@mhoye no, it was something showing the rules step by step, but thanks!
