    Learned through Bootstrap 4 that Bootstrap 5 will most likely use something like PostCSS - some pretty neat, future-leaning concepts there.

    PostCSS can do the same work as preprocessors like Sass, Less, and Stylus. But PostCSS is modular, 3-30 times faster, and much more powerful.

    Similar, just different naming:

    • base

      • _layout
      • _breakpoints
      • _colors
      • _shadows
      • _text
      • _buttons
      • _inputs
      • _icons
      • _variables
    • modules

      • _cards
      • _forms
      • _actions
      • _modals
      • _notifications
      • _comments
    • partials / components

      • _header
      • _account
      • _lobby
      • _gallery
      • _pipeline
      • _feed

    and app.scss imports everything.

  • Posted to Ask DN: What is your workflow with building a large responsive website in Sketch 3?, Feb 06, 2015

    I use pages for different "sections" of the site. One page for signup flow, another for login, another for account settings, etc. I like to have the first artboard of each page be a low-fidelity grid/layout/baseline of the entire site or even the initial wireframe(s) of that section.

    However, as mentioned here and around, while Sketch can keep the file size for a complex document incredibly small (see: http://bit.ly/10LXGRH, note the file sizes), it can start to hang and bog down when too many large bitmaps are involved and especially if they're repeated. This is my experience.

    Whenever I notice a performance hit, I take that section and make a new Sketch doc and paste it right in. You can go pretty far before having to do this.

    • project-ui.sketch
    • project-ui__some-heavy-section-that-i-isolated.sketch
    • project-ui__another-huge-section-that's-maybe-bitmap-heavy.sketch

    As for responsiveness - I usually put a mobile-sized artboard(s) next to (or above) it's desktop-sized counterpart.
