CSS chapter of the 2019 Web Almanac covering color, units, selectors, layout, typography and fonts, spacing, decoration, animation, and media queries.

The results of the 2019 Front-End Tooling Survey are out! This year, 3,005 developers answered 27 questions covering a wide range of front-end tools and methodologies. As always it’s super interesting to look at what’s changed over the last 12 months in front-end tooling and see if our thoughts and opinions are shared by other developers in the industry. These results (hopefully) help give an insight into the current usage trends and knowledge levels across front-end tools, as well as showing how these are changing over time by looking at the figures from previous surveys.
