@zcorpan @brucel Is it reversible??Which of these should we concentrate on? @csswg #houdini
Retweeted by Lea Verou@anatudor @codepen Nice! Added to the rest: shouldn't be a deterrence mechanism. EU must create safe routes for asylum-seekers.

Finally!!!! @csssecretsbook by @LeaVerou is on its way! Next time, I'll preorder on announcement. #happy
Retweeted by Lea Verou@barefootliam @svgeesus Oh, I see. Perhaps I can make a demo for this.@barefootliam @svgeesus Thanks! I wanted to link to it but couldn’t fit it. Differently how?Mind blown by @svgeesus: One character can have two fonts!! Example: é, if your first font has an e but no é/´ and the second a combining ´@tykayn Yes, it’s out of stock everywhere. will get fresh copies soon, not sure about the others.@n_aleksandrenko Hello, thanks for your review. May I ask what exactly were you expecting and which topics were missing?In the Houdini (Extensible CSS) meeting. Constraint solving is actually being discussed, which fills me with hope about the future of CSS.@vasilis OMG, you’re right!! Nice simplification over my code! 👍@vasilis I sent you an example yesterday. These selectors match everything.@vasilis Yes, this code is not correct. Is the correct code anywhere?

Retweeted by Lea Verou@vasilis Yes, I know. But where is the code?@vasilis Still, I haven’t seen the correct code anywhere.@vasilis the quantity selectors from your slides are incorrect, they match everything Can explain why if needed.I was into CSS5 before it was an Editor's Draft @csswg #hipster++

Finally :3 @csssecretsbook by @LeaVerou
Retweeted by Lea Verou@steve_fenton @mkanat thanks! Which book is this from?@johnslegers And I think you’re way too influenced by your perspective ignoring that it’s not universal. PS: *I* use Sass too.@johnslegers Oook, you’re clearly trolling or just utterly clueless. Kthxbye, not interested in continuing this discussion.@johnslegers PHP developers are not the primary target group for CSS. Nor are programmers of any kind.@johnslegers How do you know? “It’s intuitive because I think so” is no rational argument, sorry.@johnslegers @tabatkins The very reason SCSS is so popular is that it does things CSS at the moment can’t. The syntax is secondary.@hsablonniere Yeah, it’s out of stock everywhere. 2nd print run should be ready tomorrow though.@johnslegers @tabatkins Also, what you’re used to from imperative languages is utterly irrelevant to a declarative language like CSS.@johnslegers @tabatkins I suggest you read up a bit on custom properties. You really seem to not get it and we can’t teach you over twitter.The @csssecretsbook by @LeaVerou is brilliant and truly inspiring. When you read it, you feel like you fall in love with #CSS, again.
Retweeted by Lea VerouJust received my copy of @csssecretsbook by @LeaVerou today 😊 looks like there's a lot to learn in it 😀
Retweeted by Lea VerouIt has arrived. If anyone needs me, don't. @LeaVerou
Retweeted by Lea Verou@robinhoover The publisher, @OReillyMedia has told me tomorrow. I guess + a few days to ship to the warehouses.@koste4 Yay, so glad you liked it! Now that you finished, please consider leaving an Amazon review about what you thought?@tabatkins @johnslegers Sass vars are not global, they’re lexically scoped in the rule they’re defined.@scottsawyer @sarasoueidan @csswg @tabatkins Huh?@jasonneel @abby_the_ia Love the irony of them together. :PGot myself some goodies in the mail. Books by @LeaVerou and @Abby_the_IA #levelingup
Retweeted by Lea VerouFinished reading @LeaVerou 's @csssecretsbook . Recommended lecture for any web developer who wants to be mindblown 47 times.
Retweeted by Lea Verou@johnslegers @tabatkins @csswg The existing JS API to read/write properties. And existing CSS parsers etc.@johnslegers @tabatkins @csswg CSS properties are even more popular. :) And I’m referring to the JS API. Sass doesn’t have/need any.@johnslegers @tabatkins @csswg It’s yet another API to learn for developers and you have provided exactly zero arguments for it.@johnslegers @tabatkins @csswg You’d have to invent a whole new API whereas variables today use the existing known mechanisms of properties.@johnslegers @tabatkins @csswg CSS variables are dynamic. Can be set via JS. Can be changed via CSS. Scoping is dynamic, not lexical.@johnslegers Then you clearly don’t understand the CSS syntax. More readable, maybe. More intuitive, maybe. More powerful? Absolutely not.Starting reading CSS Secrets by @LeaVerou
Retweeted by Lea Verou@joranovski Aww thanks! Both coffee and drinks are welcome :) Writing an Amazon review about what you thought of it is also very welcome :)@smit_dey @csswg Nesting is also being discussed, @tabatkins has a proposal for that too.
@slemgrim glad you liked it! Now that you're finished, please consider leaving an Amazon review?Just finished CSS Secrets by @LeaVerou It was a really good read and I learnt a lot of new stuff
Retweeted by Lea Verou@StuRobson @csswg @tabatkins This depends on how variables are resolved. We’re still discussing this.I look forward to the day that I don’t have to install/use Sass for simple stuff like nesting, variables & mixins!
Retweeted by Lea VerouCurrently discussed in the @CSSWG F2F meeting: A proposal by @tabatkins [1] to bring mixins to CSS! [1]: alphabet. 😂
Retweeted by Lea Verou@oreillymedia cc @gumnosWell done @LeaVerou this book is lovely!

@stubbornella Awwwwwww!! So happy for you both! He looks blissful in there :)Incluso @SaraSoueidan esta aprendiendo CSS con el libro de @LeaVerou, y eso que es experta. Necesito ese libro.
Retweeted by Lea Verou@sarasoueidan Thank you! Means a lot coming from you. Once you finish, please consider leaving a review on Amazon?If you want a taste of the clever tips in @LeaVerou ’s book, give this article on @smashingmag a read :: #CSS #SVG
Retweeted by Lea Verou@ddprrt Wow, thank you so much, that’s such a fantastic review!I read @LeaVerou's CSS Secrets and was amazed:
Retweeted by Lea Verou@LeaVerou For someone who has always struggled with CSS, your book is really helping. Sadly, don't have fun pic as bought ebook version.
Retweeted by Lea Verou@gumnos Oh, good to know, thanks! /cc @OReillyMediaThank you @gumnos for such a wonderful review, I think it’s among my favorite reviews of @csssecretsbook! Not sure, but at least the new MBPs do have an IPS display.
@videosean Also, the link you sent is about the new MBAs. I said MacBook Pro.@videosean Why not look directly at the source?…and just realized the screen gamut of said MBA is even smaller than sRGB!!! O_o Well done Apple, great displays… :( Above / below.@videosean The new MacBook Pros have IPS panels. Seriously considering getting one, but should probably wait till 2016 ones now.Whoa, hadn’t realized how bad my MBA (2013) screen is. #f06 varies from orange to purple depending on viewing angle!!@stubbornella So cute! O HAI Oliver!! Congratulations Nicole!! I’m ecstatic for you both! So looking forward to meeting him in person!"Hello World!" Love, Oliver
Retweeted by Lea Verou@cathy_dutton @LeaVerou can't express how valuable this book is to a #webdesigner & #webdeveloper
Retweeted by Lea Verou@LeaVerou Just finished reading #CSSsecrets Simply amazing. Feel like i leveled up my knowledge in CSS
Retweeted by Lea VerouIt's finally here #CSSsecrets @LeaVerou
Retweeted by Lea Verou@golmote @brainbag Thank you so much for your help. I have no idea where @prismjs would be today without u, but it wouldn’t be a good place.
Guys, the noise we’re making is finally paying off! Conic-gradients suggestion marked as “under review” by MS! :D De facto for most things in the world. If anything is in 2 languages, chances are one of the two will be English. In any country.@jrblier Wat? That’s ridiculous. Which airline?@jrblier Would you like it if you went to e.g. Greece and stewardesses spoke to you in Greek only? We need a common protocol.@jrblier Not to mention that English is the de facto international language, whether you like it or not. Otherwise it’s a mess. [cont'd]@jrblier I’m finding that hard to believe, given that French is the most popular 2nd language in Britain.Photo: Join to make the web better, stay for the frequent flyer miles!
Retweeted by Lea Verou@redwaz @airfrance thank gawd it is so we have a common protocol and can communicate!! Imagine if I spoke Greek to everyone. Good luck me!@gregkare @jennschiffer hmm. Guess if someone posted that a Greek stewardess on Aegean Airlines was rude, I think I'd probably apologize too@gf3 ok, you're clearly trolling. And not even intelligently. Not interested in talking to you, bye!
@airfrance dm sent! :)@gf3 clearly u have no clue how airlines work & what services they r supposed to provide. Stewards are not hired if they don't speak English@airfrance hi, I followed you but Twitter won't let me dm unless you're following me :)@drewisthe @wesbos not sure I follow. Am I too demanding to expect to be spoken to in a language I understand when they're paid to speak it?@drewisthe @wesbos@mbekatoros @airfrance I should have. I regret not being brave enough to do that!@TonyMosley no but for stewards, it's part of their job.@adriennowak @airfrance on planes there is typically no internet. Also, it's their job to speak English. It's a job requirement for stewards
