Sublime HyperClick

Most of the time when you are navigating and reading a code-base, you need to jump between required/imported (whatever jargon your programming language uses) files. The “Go to Definition” functionality of Sublime falls short for most languages since jumping between these required files needs some knowledge about how the language or package manager of the language is working.

HyperClick tries to solve this issue. Currently, it knows how to jump between files in Javascript and Sass but can be easily extended to support more languages.

Ooh, I like this plugin a lot. Especially when clicking through our React+Redux based projects at work which tend to have a lot of files requiring each other.

UPDATE 2016.11.29: I’ve added support for Stylus to HyperClick. The pull request has already been merged 🙂

Inverse trigonometric functions with Sass

You might think that math doesn’t have a lot to do with writing stylesheets, but you can actually do some amazing things with a little math in CSS. Math (particularly trigonometry) can help you model the real world. You’ll need it if you want to do something complicated with 3D transforms. And it can be a lot of fun if you just want to impress your friends.

The author, Ana Tudor, also talked about this at CSS Day 2014. Unfortunately I could not attend, due to being in Ireland at the moment.

Getting Started with Sass

Great new article on A List Apart introducing on to Sass.

While browsers aren’t ready for a new CSS, Catlin and Weizenbaum (the authors of SASS, ed.) realized they could go ahead and design a new style sheet syntax with features to help make their increasingly complex CSS easier to write and manage, then use a preprocessor (a program that runs on your computer or server) to translate the new smart syntax into the old, dumb CSS that browsers understand.
