Zurb Ink with MailChimp -

Zurb Ink is for email as Zurb Foundation is for the web. Zurb teased us late last year with their responsive email templates but they have now taken it one huge step further. They have created a easy to use responsive framework that is available with the same permissive MIT license. I wanted to see how difficult it would be to use this new framework with MailChimp, my newsletter and email provider. Turns out, it was super simple. Lets take a look at how I went about it.

Fresh redesign for a multi-site Church website. Refresh Perspective hired me to help develop the website, working with the designer hand-offs. I developed the website with Wordpress and utilized the Roots theme framework and is responsive to mobile, tablet and desktop sizes. It was a pleasure to work with Ryan Liverman and the Refresh team and it’s great to see the site online.

Using LESS Source Maps -

The adoption of CSS preprocessors has grown a lot over the past few years. One of the major complaints that people have voiced regarding preprocessors is the inability to see where your CSS rules come from when inspecting elements with developer tools.

Source maps allow you to view the original source file and line numbers from your CSS even when you’re loading the generated CSS file.

Source maps support has been available for Sass, but LESS only recently added source maps support with the release of LESS 1.5.0.
