CSS Optimization Basics
Post from April 12, 2018 (↻ August 23, 2021), filed under Web Development.
The quick story: I’ve always wanted to jot down what I deemed important about optimizing style sheets. Over the last few months I did. When my publisher, O’Reilly, decided not to take the manuscript—it didn’t fit their strategy (if it wasn’t too Jens-style swift)—I opted to run another self-publishing experiment. Therefore, this time, you have access to the book source at GitHub, and you can purchase the book for what you want at Leanpub.
