Drupal 8 release candidate

Finally, Drupal 8 left beta and provided a release candidate last week. As soon as things slow down at work, it’ll be time to start learning the ins and outs of this. (I won’t be moving away from Drupal 7 for some time, because of all the custom modules I’ve come to depend on. But that doesn’t mean my next project can’t start with the new version.)

A complete guide to flexbox

I was overjoyed when I saw that the latest versions of Safari for both OS X and iOS did away with the need to use -webkit- prefixes in CSS animations and flexbox. I’m still including them for the time being, and probably will for at least a year, to ensure compatability. But it’s as good a reason to point out that if you’re not on the flexbox train, you’re missing out on some powerful stuff.

CSS tricks has a great page called “A Complete Guide to Flexbox“, and I’ve been referring back to it constantly as I use it more and more in my current project. If you haven’t memorized all the nuances of flexbox yet, keep this one handy.
