Yesterday I read Eric Meyer discussing CSS Cascade Layers and commenting that the speed at which it had transitioned from first public working draft to shipping as a full public release in every major desktop and mobile browser had made his head spin. Amazing stuff and an indicator of the turbo-boosted pace at which modern CSS is now evolving.
It also made me want to properly read up on Cascade Layers, because I knew some of the theory but now wanted to consider using it in practice. I’m no great fan of “cascade-taming” CSS frameworks like BEM and SUIT (although I acknowledge why we have them) so I’m interested to know if Cascade Layers can replace them. Stephanie Eckles’ article is an excellent primer.
