After some downtime, GreenApe is breathing again. I revived the brand with a good friend of mine and we will be reopening shop options shortly.

Michael and I have been friends for a long time. We have been working on many different projects over the years.

He launched GreenApe in 2011 and I helped him with his first steps. A couple of months ago we decided to merge our competences and expand what GreenApe offers and stands for.

From the website:The GreenApe brand was established in 2011. GreenApe’s career began with the 1st Single Malt Whisky Coffee.

As the first of its kind, our coffee is refined with Original Single Malt Whisky. To this day, he pampers many connoisseurs and gourmets with his unique taste. Now there is another reason to rejoice.

From now on, we are continuously expanding the GreenApe product world with several stylish gadgets and useful accessories. For you this means that you will be able to discover even more beautiful, special or practical things in the future.

GreenApe is all about lifestyle & leisure products, fun gadgets and unique food & drinks.

Element queries are a new way of thinking about responsive web design where the responsive conditions apply to elements on the page instead of the width or height of the browser.
Unlike CSS @media queries, @element Queries are aware of more than just the width and height of the browser, you can write responsive conditions for a number of different situations like how many characters of text or child elements an element contains.
Another concept that element queries brings to CSS is the idea of ‘scoping’ your styles to one element in the same way that JavaScript functions define a new scope for the variables they contain.”

Width-based Conditions

Height-based Conditions

Count-based Conditions

Scroll-based Conditions

I almost completely switched to Sass in the past year. So organzing my CSS code has become a mission of mine 🙂

Structure is especially needed, when you are not the only one working on the design. So that everyone on the team can easily understand and contribute with ease. There are never too many files, as files get combined anyway.

Make your own life easier and for those you work with!

Currently applying the following structure on newer projects:

  1. BASE holds files like resets, typography and foundation structures.
  2. COMPONENTS holds specific module definitions, like buttons, navigation etc.
  3. UTILS holds my own functions, mixins and configuration for the whole project.
  4. LAYOUT holds the main files defining the different layout areas / grid of the project.
  5. SECTIONS holds the definition of pages or sub sections defined.
  6. THEMES holds files for theme switches or front / backend layouts.
  7. VENDORS holds those files that are related to external includes.

Which architecture fits your project & team will vary.

Enjoy coding …
