I learned web development in the early days (long before GitHub) with the "View source" button. The trend of generated class-names makes me sad...
@sindresorhus what the hell! readability???????
@sindresorhus Yeah, stuff like this is ridiculous. Also, that page probably has a few K of readable text content and probably 10x-20x in class names.
looks like a trick to prevent adblockers from blocking their stuff
@sindresorhus this makes me really sad, too. i guess it's the consequence of an ongoing development: sites get bigger and more complicated, sometimes they even turn into apps. even many small scale sites that are not app-like have adopted complicated build-tools though, because there's always this idea that it might as well grow into something bigger some day.
@sindresorhus styled components. I get it but feel it's solving a human problem with a technical solution.
Personally I'm a fan of CSS modules or even better vanilla CSS with --vars.
@sindresorhus longing for the days of handwritten html
