Week 6

October 4

Briefly, technical questions

Again, I won’t always be available to help with technical questions (especially, right before class). I’ve been told there are some contract problems with the CD Tutors this semester, so they don’t have a schedule yet and there isn’t a timeline for onenot ideal!

In the meantime, we’ve been directed to have you try the University Learning Center. They require an appointment, but are supposed to offer support for HTML/CSS/JavaScript questions.

I’d like some folks to try this out, before next week, and report back.

Harmonic Collection review

Let’s pick back up with your entries:

New volunteers, please!


We’ll get into some more modern (less frustrating) CSS layout:

A standard mid-lecture break somewhere in here, as we do.

Let’s try it out

We’re going to recreate a classic Holy Grail layout together with flexbut also make it responsive.

Let’s start with this DOM, to get us going:

<!DOCTYPE html>

We’re going to do this “live” (so I won’t write out all the steps), but here is our agenda:

  1. Set up basic styles (mobile first)

    • Variables for type size/spacing on :root
    • Use for padding/spacing on the children
    • Differentiate link color/decoration
    • Scale our headings from base type size
  2. Flexbox pass (desktop)

    • Start with flex-wrap and widths
    • Add main as container in the middle
    • Switch axis for body / main (column/row)
    • Use flex-grow on article block
    • Force footer to bottom (short page)
  3. Limit layout width (very large screens)

    • Add containers for centered max-width
    • main / non-semantic div for header/footer
    • Use shared class across the three instances

For next week
