Piccalilli Newsletter - Issue #45

Hoi 👋

I hope you’re doing as good as you can be right now. I’ve got you 5 mind-blowing links here that I hope will put a smile on your face. I know they certainly did for me.

Before we dig into those, I need to share something rather important with you. Learn Eleventy From Scratch is finished and will be released on June 22nd. Sign up to get an email in your inbox on launch day.

If you are one of the amazing people that preordered the course, you will be getting early access this week. Keep your eyes peeled for access link in your inbox over the next few days 👀

Right, on with the newsletter!

Airplanes permalink

⚠️ Motion Warning ⚠️

A plane blueprint with a heading: “Wing Span.”, followed by “I dunno, longer than a cat probably.”

Mr Steve checking in with an absolute stunner here. This looks like it’s using the fancy new GSAP scrolling stuff and I’ve gotta say, it’s butter smooth!

Pixel World permalink

⚠️ Motion Warning ⚠️

Random pink and blue pixels

I’ve been transfixed by this for ages. It’s so soothing. Cracking work, as usual, by Ilithya.

Hangman permalink

Hangman on the left and the word puzzle and input on the right

This is just lovely, by Evie. I love hangman and have really enjoyed playing this version of it over the last couple of days.

SCSSuper Mario permalink

Super Mario’s head

When I first saw this, I recoiled and thought: “there’s no way this is CSS”. We all should know by now, how powerful CSS is as a programming language—especially for making rad art like this. Great work, Louise!

CSS Grid: Newspaper Layout permalink

A demo that very much has the look and feel of a traditional broad-sheet newspaper

Olivia here with yet more amazing layout work. Seriously, you should follow Olivia—they are one of the best CSS people I know!

That’s all, folks permalink

Thanks for stopping by this week. Maybe you could share this newsletter with a pal? Just forward this email, or share the link.
