Recreate the Spotify Album Page with Tailwind CSS

By Chris on Code

Tailwind CSS is an awesome tool that changes the way we write our HTML and CSS. Tailwind is a “utility-first CSS framework” that I initially wasn’t sure about. Our HTML gets pretty busy when using Tailwind, but I’ve found it’s not that bad of a tradeoff.

The more I have used Tailwind, the more I have liked it. It lets me design my UI quicker than ever before. People say that CSS frameworks will make you not know the underlying CSS. With Tailwind, I believe you need to know your CSS even better to be able to use the utility classes.

Let’s recreate something with Tailwind so that we can practice.

We tried building this on a Twitch stream.

5 Things I Love About My Website Built with Next.js

By Tejas Kumar

This site is home to certain tech and web dev goodies that make me very happy. This post is about what they are, and how they work.

1. It follows light/dark mode based on your preference

While most websites these days come with some type of dark/light mode toggle switch, I serve you content based on the setting that you’ve set on your system: if you use your phone/computer in dark mode, you get dark mode. If you use it in light mode, you get light mode.

This is made possible by the powerful prefers-color-scheme media query in CSS. Here’s a code sample that makes that possible.

Build a Weight Tracker App with Node.js and PostgreSQL

By David Neal

Did you make any resolutions this year? One resolution I seem to make every year is to lose weight and exercise. Sometimes I even stick to it.

A good way I have found to keep on track with any resolution is to record progress. There’s something about visualizing progress that helps me stay motivated.

In this tutorial, you are going to create a modern Node.js application to keep track of weight measurements. We’ll use technologies like PostgreSQL, a new and exciting Postgres client for Node.js, hapi, Vue.js, and Okta to secure the API and provide account registration and login!

Before we begin, let’s first check some requirements.

This is the metadata I use to automagically bookmark youtube videos.
