Don’t let the declarative syntax fool you – CSS is a powerful and dynamic programming language.

It’s time to start moving style logic back into the language designed for it.

CSS has come a long way since the browser wars of the late 90s. What used to be a struggle, is now often a breeze (see box-shadow or border-radius). But the last 2 years have pushed CSS into entirely new territory: with DOM-aware variables and calculations that can drive your design, without all the invasive Javascript.

Some pretty mind-bendingly cool uses for CSS custom props from @TerribleMia – color, layout & animation all in css and only using JS to feed data.
