NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radarUnderstand more

A living CSS style guide is a page on your site that uses your current CSS styles and acts as a reference for all the currently available visual elements and design patterns. This helps to tightly integrate design into your delivery process by promoting co-ownership of the UI and avoids duplication of styling across your application. Styling changes are visible in the guide immediately and changes propagate across your site from a central location. A sensible way to do this is with a well organized SASS/LESS file structure with semantically named elements that separates structure, aesthetics, and interaction.
