Object Oriented CSS

Post pobrano z: Object Oriented CSS

“How do you scale CSS for millions of visitors or thousands of pages?” This is the question that Nicole Sullivan tried to answer in her presentation at Web Directions North in Denver. Entitled Object Oriented CSS (OOCSS), the concept has since then garnered overwhelming response from the community.

OOCSS is more than just a tool, it is a way of thinking. There are many advantages to adapting this concept. Primarily:

  • It allows you to write fast, maintainable, standards-based front end code.
  • It adds much needed predictability to CSS so that even beginners can participate in writing beautiful websites.

OOCSS is governed by two main principles:

  1. Separate structure and skin
  2. Separate container and content

Take time to check out the Object Oriented CSS presentation. There are 64 slides, but it is definitely worth going through. If the text is hard to read, try viewing in Full Screen mode.
