Code Smells in CSS Revisited

Harry Roberts knows his way around a stylesheet, that’s for sure. This is a follow up to a 2012 article on your CSS code smelling (bad) and takes us through a series of best/worse practices and how to better approach the problems. Great stuff.

Looking back on that piece, I still agree with all of it even four years later, but I do have some new things to add to the list. Again, these aren’t necessarily always bad things, hence referring to them as code smells: they might be perfectly acceptable in your use case, but they still smell kinda funny.
