Implementing responsive email design can be a bit of a drag. Building responsive emails isn’t simple at all, it is like taking a time machine back to 2001 when we were all coding website layouts in tables using Dreamweaver and Fireworks.

If you have been in the React ecosystem for a while, there is a possibility that you have heard about Higher Order Components. Let’s look at a simple implementation while also trying to explain the core idea. From here you should get a good idea of how they work and even put them to use.

Earlier this month on the Animation at Work Slack, we had a discussion about finding a way to let users pan inside an SVG.
I made this demo below to show how I’d approach this question:
See the Pen Demo – SVG Panning by Louis Hoebregts (@Mamboleoo) on CodePen.

There is no shortage of videos out there where you can watch people code with an educational vibe. A golden age, one might say. Here are a few that I’ve watched and really enjoyed lately:
@keyframers – “An animated, collaborative coding live stream by @davidkpiano & @shshaw." They’ve got 2 epsidoes out now, each of which they start with an animated interface GIF and then collaboratively re-build it.

We just hit you with a slab of observations about CSS Grid in a new post by Manuel Matuzo. Grid has been blowing our minds since it was formally introduced and Jen Simmons is connecting it (among other new features) to what she sees as a larger phenomenon in the evolution of layouts in web design.
From Jeremy Keith’s notes on Jen’s talk, “Everything You Know About Web Design Just Changed " at An Event Apart Seattle 2018:

Last year, I assembled A Collection of Interesting Facts about CSS Grid Layout after giving a workshop. This year, I was worked on another workshop and I’ve learned some more exciting facts about the layout spec we all so love.

I’ve recently published my first ever open source npm package! It makes SVG illustrations from unDraw into customizable React components.
Here’s a GIF that shows what I mean:
While unDraw is still fairly new, its open source nature means that it’s being used by a range of products already. Here it is on the newly launched design mentoring site called MentorOla, alongside a language site I’ve been working on myself called Little Lingua:

List rendering is one of the most commonly used practices in front-end web development. Dynamic list rendering is often used to present a series of similarly grouped information in a concise and friendly format to the user. In almost every web application we use, we can see lists of content in numerous areas of the app.
In this article we’ll gather an understanding of Vue’s v-for directive in generating dynamic lists, as well as go through some examples of why …
