rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP.

You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.

Hexatope

It was awesome to hear Charlotte Dann on CodePen Radio the other day, who is Kickstarting a new jewelry business. The idea is that you draw your own jewelry (everything you draw looks awesome because it’s on this interesting hexagon grid) and then it gets actually made. This tying together of her passions sprang to life on CodePen. Direct Link to Article — Permalink Hexatope is a post from CSS-Tricks Source: CssTricks

Breaking down CSS Box Shadow vs. Drop Shadow

Drop shadows. Web designers have loved them for a long time to the extent that we used to fake them with PNG images before CSS Level 3 formally introduced them to the spec as the box-shadow property. I still reach for drop shadows often in my work because they add a nice texture in some contexts, like working with largely flat designs. Not too long after box-shadow was introduced, a working draft for CSS Filters surfaced and, with it, a method for drop-shadow() that looks a lot like box-shadow at first glance. However, the two are different and it’s worth comparing those differences. For me, the primary difference came to light early on when I started working with box-shadow. Here’s a simple triangle not unlike the one I made back then. See the Pen CSS Caret by CSS-Tricks (@css-tricks) on CodePen. Let’s use this to break down the difference between…

MDN Product Advisory Board

We all know and love MDN for already being the best documentation for web features out there. It looks like it’s poised to get even better with Google and Microsoft both joining a new board. Mozilla’s vision for the MDN Product Advisory Board is to build collaboration that helps the MDN community collectively maintain MDN as the most comprehensive, complete, and trusted reference documenting the most important aspects of modern browsers and web standards. Interesting none of them mentioned WebPlatform, the previous attempt at this that kinda fizzled out. This effort seems a little more likely to succeed as it already has a successful foundation, actual staff, and a benevolent dictator in Mozilla. It’s great to see browsers complete on user features but cooperate on standards and education. Worth a shout that we dabble in “docs” for CSS features ourselves here at CSS-Tricks with the Almanac, but if anything in…

5 Tips for Starting a Front-End Refactor

For the last two weeks, I’ve been working on a really large refactor project at Gusto and I realize that this is the first time that a project like this has gone smoothly for me. There haven’t been any kinks in the process, it took about as much time as I thought it would, and no-one appears to be mad at me. In fact, things have gone almost suspiciously well. How did this happen and what was the issue? Well, we had a problem with how our CSS was organized. Some pages in our app loaded Bootstrap and some didn’t. Others were loading only our app styles and some weren’t loading the styles we served from our component library, a separate repo that includes all our forms, buttons, and variables, etc. This led to all sorts of design inconsistencies but most important of all it wasn’t clear how to write…

A Bone to Pick with Skeleton Screens

In the fight for the short attention span of our users, every performance gain, whether real or perceived, matters. This is especially true on mobile, where despite our best efforts at performance, a spotty signal can leave users waiting an interminable few seconds (or more) for content to load. Design’s conventional answer to unpredictable wait times has long been the loading spinner; a looping animation that tells the user to “Hold on. Something’s coming,” whether that something is one or ten seconds away. More recently, a design pattern known as progressive loading has gained popularity. With progressive loading, individual elements become visible on the page as soon as they’ve loaded, rather than displaying all at once. See the following example from Facebook: Progressive loading on the Facebook app In the Facebook example above, a skeleton of the page loads first. It’s essentially a wireframe of the page with placeholder boxes…

A Look Back at the History of CSS

When you think of HTML and CSS, you probably imagine them as a package deal. But for years after Tim Berners-Lee first created the World Wide Web in 1989, there was no such thing as CSS. The original plan for the web offered no way to style a website at all. There’s a now-infamous post buried in the archives of the WWW mailing list. It was written by Marc Andreessen in 1994, who would go on to co-create both the Mosaic and Netscape browsers. In the post, Andreessen remarked that because there was no way to style a website with HTML, the only thing he could tell web developers when asked about visual design was, “sorry you’re screwed.” 10 years later, CSS was on its way to full adoption by a newly enthused web community. *W**hat happened along the way?* Finding a Styling Language There were plenty of ideas for…
