I'd like to share some interesting articles I found in my newsreader in Collective #220 by Codrops, which you can find at http://tympanus.net/codrops/collective/collective-220/ .

In my opinion, the most interesting are:
- https://www.cutestrap.com - A tiny alternative to Bootstrap
- https://hacks.mozilla.org/2016/05/css-coding-techniques/ - CSS coding techniques
- http://www.csspurge.com - Saving the web 1KB at a time / symptoms of CSSitis
- http://javier.xyz/visual-center/ - Find the visual center of your images

Enjoy!

[edit: added a space so the last link would be directly clickable]

That article mentions the browser's own debugging tools, something I really should be using more.

It also mentions CSS preprocessors, a kind of tool I've never even tried. I thought they were just the CSS equivalent of bloated WYSIWYG editors, but they actually do seem to have some good features (such as defining variables for site themes, etc).

I've only tried SASS once. I think, it adds confusion to the mix, with javascript/jQuery like mixins. I prefer to write my own rules and declarations and know what happens, without having to parse the SASS to plain CSS first.

BTW, the in that mozilla article mentioned previous article You might not need a CSS framework is an interesting read too.
