Cleganebowl has nothing on this hype train:
I have used Sheepie as a testbed, sandbox and ongoing learning exercise for the entire while that I’ve worked in web development. 943 commits is well enough for me to put up draw a line across versions and make a formal release of 1.0. Sure, nothing has changed in practice; the same code was there yesterday and not much has changed beyond a bunch of compatibility changes for Internet Explorer. So what does Sheepie offer?
- Clean, modern design.
- Mobile-responsive layout.
- Flexbox-based layout with float fallback for Internet Explorer 9.
- Support for all modern browsers back to Internet Explorer 9 (although your mileage may vary if you depend on Android’s webview).
- 100% open source codebase.
- Code markup through highlight.js.
- Near-compatibility with WordPress’ theme check. There are a few outstanding issues that I need to nix.
- Integrated lightbox for article images.
There are a bunch of issues I want to tackle in the near future:
- Archives: I have over 1,800 posts on the blog at this time, and no great way to access them outside of the search.
- Rich features. This is a learning exercise and I want to add interactivity.
The sexily-named scss-helpers serves as a small Sass library I use to help me build my sites. It features:
- A dynamic Flexbox grid generator with floated column fallback.
- Social media and button icon generation from an SVG spritesheet.
- A set of functions to convert unitless decimal values to
- Library of mixins to shorthand
