In my last post I recreated an image in SVG to prove how easy it is compared to CSS.
All the CSS fans came to shout at me for bashing CSS or not using it...so now I have built the same image in CSS, hopefully that makes everybody happy! 😉
In the previous post I cheated and created an SVG of the image.
This post is no different, I cheated again!
All I did was write a little script (well, actually it was quite a monstrous script as you can't have curves in polygons!) that converted the SVG
<path> information into
polygon() coordinates that CSS can understand.
The script also had to grab the styling information and generate the HTML and CSS.
So we have 977
<divs>, each with auto generated IDs...that correspond to CSS rules...that are all using clip paths...to draw shapes and with classes to set the colours. Talk about excessively complicated! 🤣
additional: as @afif pointed out in the comments you should never just copy and paste CSS…I was miles into coding this (with hard coded spaghetti code!) before I realised I didn’t need pseudo elements to create the clip-paths…sometimes my brain just doesn’t work!
All the CSS mega fans will now be happy that I have finally drawn my first piece of CSS art...can I go back to my precious SVGs now? 😋🤣
As always, this was just a bit of fun, I am only kidding, CSS art is cool, especially when done with skill rather than cheating like me!
Have a great weekend everybody!
