How We Created Our Own Frontend Framework: MarsMan (and Why)

Captain's log, stardate d164.y37/AB

2016 was a really challenging year for MarsBased. Throughout the entire year, we worked on about 16 different projects, and even though I joined as a full-time employee in June, I've been involved in most of them in the design, UX and frontend development phases.

Switching projects isn't always easy, especially when dealing with different clients who have different tech stacks and different libraries in every project, or even very diverse visual guidelines.

Luckily enough, we came up with the idea to standardise the visual elements we're using throughout all our projects and grouped them in a library of our own: MarsMan.

The MarsBased CSS & HTML Guidelines

Since we started MarsBased, we've completed a good share of projects. From all of them we've learnt something useful. But all this knowledge should be stored somewhere for further use, for instance, to train new developers.

Pretty much like we did with the release of the MarsBased blogging guide (part 1, part 2), we want to share what we have learnt about HTML5 & CSS3 with you all.

Things should not only work well. They can also look good.

Frontend developers, this one is for you.

You're one step away from meeting your best partner in business.
