Views like this never get boring.
I needed to generate some color swatches, but I wanted no repetition in the pattern library I’m working on, so I made this little tool.
It finds custom props, formats them and then returns back an array of objects. This is then used to generate swatches!
I love how with Gulp you can create a really complex build process and it still be completely human-friendly to read and maintain.
Webpack is cool, but it’s so much easier to get creative with Gulp IMO.
There are some awesome interviews coming up, with the majority being women in tech 🙂
Pro tip: If you’re formatting credit card numbers on the fly, you’re probably not actually helping users.
Latency in formatting becomes a problem if people have password managers / paste their card number into a field.
Yes, it’s fancy, but probably doing more harm than good.
