Here's an idea: a #NoJS challenge.
Even if it seems impossible, look it up. It just might be possible.
There's so much stuff in there now, even a seasoned webmaster could be surprised.
@polychrome i dont use js on my personal page and its clean and simple and you can even make animations with just plain old css
@hj it's a challenge, not a mandate
Though I'm fairly sure it's possible to make an interactive gallery with 10 images that doesn't occupy too much space with CSS...
@polychrome Agreed. We got a bit stuck with a shopping cart, and have been faffing around with how to hit the server with successive cart updates then displaying the invoice, Not quite there yet, but mildly confident we're gonna do the whole site JS'less.
On my personal site I use js only for webgl demos. The site is still totally usable without js the user just gets screenshots of the demos.
@polychrome On my website I always use JS when there is no other option, so even with uBlock, uMatrix and NoScript active, no exception are required :)
@polychrome Hmmm I think I can do it. My personal website only has a JS dependency, and I can remove it to use the CSS replacement (it's font-awesome), so...
There's also quite a bit of overlap between the different technologies. Sometimes it's obvious what (not) to use, sometimes it's a personal call.
Example of not a good idea: 🙂
@polychrome Gotcha. I can see certain cases where JS-lessness leads to more speed and efficiency, and how it could be a fun exercise to do so.
