Time Jumps


  • Regarding ordering CSS properties: I just use the default ruleset which is shipped with and added a few modifications, such as no empty lines between property groups and making it work with Sass specific stuff like includes. I use the same ruleset for the Sass linter, so if I forget to sort things using CSScomb in Sublime Text, the linter reminds me.

    No idea if this ruleset is the best. But since I care more about a uniform ruleset to be used at all, than about what those rules actually are, it’s OK for me.
