100 Days of Code: Day 26

Home / Technology / Web Development / 100 Days of Code: Day 26
Day 26 of 100 was all about Free Code Camp challenges. I also shared a bit about the Color Helper application that I created yesterday.

Up until now, I had no idea that CSS variables were even a thing. From what I can tell, they are a relatively new thing and are part of the reason for the existence of Sass. Still, I can’t tell you how happy I am to learn something new that is going to be extremely helpful in the future.[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”The Bad:” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]I ran into my first issue with Free Code Camp as I was working on the Applied Visual Design section. It’s not really a big deal since I knew with 100% certainty that it was a bug and not something I had done. Someone else had the same problem and asked for help in the forums, so I checked GitHub and saw that it had already been reported. So, I just moved on and will go back and do that challenge later after the issue is resolved.[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”Notes/Comments:” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]I am going to keep working through these exercises as I watch the rest of the NBA Finals game. I don’t know how much more I’ll get done tonight, but I am enjoying what I am learning/practicing.

Color Helper

In case anyone is interested in the project I was working on yesterday, I decided to post a screenshot to show you what it does. Essentially, I enter information about the color palettes (color codes, names, photographer, URL, etc.) and it takes that information, compiles it into HTML/CSS code, and displays that in the console so I can quickly copy and paste the information to a new Color Inspiration blog post. It’s not pretty or fancy, but it works and it’s extremely helpful. I knocked out 3-4 posts last night in about the time it normally takes to do one.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”5233″ img_size=”full” style=”vc_box_outline” onclick=”link_image”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
