We have tracked the following product recommendations or mentions on various public social media platforms and blogs. They can help you see what people think about BEM and what they use it for.
  • SASS, CSS, or Tailwind: Which One Should You Choose?
    Keep in mind you also have to use BEM. If you use just SASS, there are little to no advantages compared with CSS. I am going to cover BEM in a separate article, but for your understanding, BEM is a methodology for writing good CSS. - Source: / about 1 month ago
  • Darling, I converted our perfectly fine SPA application into SSR: Part 2
    Most of our headaches stemmed from styled-components. Despite the merits of this CSS-in-JS library, it doesn’t mesh as seamlessly with server components. Traditional CSS methodologies, such as BEM (Block, Element, Modifier), CSS modules, or even utility-first frameworks like Tailwind, would have alleviated many of our difficulties. This lesson is a key takeaway that we plan to carry forward into our future projects. - Source: / about 1 month ago
  • Earth rescue - A CSS only game
    After I had created space, the code was as spaghetti as it can get. I decided to switch to SCSS and finally read into the BEM Pattern for CSS and after wasting another 4 hours, I decided that I could not decide wether the HUD is an element of the game and the button is an element of the HUD and the text is an element of the button and someone else also thought about this and called it the BEM grandchildren... - Source: / about 2 months ago
  • Upgrading and Refactoring a Slightly Outdated Web Project
    There are some conceptual requirements to clean code that I always found hard to achieve in a traditional web project, but that's one more reason to use tools like static site generators and follow design patterns like Atomic Design, (A)BEM CSS, and a modular file structure. - Source: / about 1 year ago
  • 21 Resources to Learn And Practice Your CSS Skills
    BEM is a methodology for organizing and naming CSS classes in a scalable and maintainable way. Learning the principles of BEM can improve the structure of your stylesheets drastically. - Source: / 6 months ago
  • StyleX – Meta's Styling Library
    It always surprises me the lengths people are willing to go to avoid writing CSS. If organization is the issue, there's BEM ( This just looks like another layer of complexity on top of an already convoluted front-end stack that just slows everything it touches to a crawl and only works moderately well on the developers beefed up latest MacBook Pro's, and sucks horribly on any regular person's... - Source: Hacker News / 7 months ago
  • Incomplete List of Mistakes in the Design of CSS
    I am a reluctant convert to tailwind. I've been doing HTML since the 90s, before CSS was even really usable for things like page layout. I mean, we didn't even use div in those days - it was table based layouts and spacer gifs. CSS appeals to a programmers mindset. Cascading seems like a good idea. Having classes that are reusable seems like a good idea. Complex selectors seem like a good idea. These are all forms... - Source: Hacker News / 7 months ago
  • An Overview of 25+ UI Component Libraries in 2023
    Recognizing this, the community pivoted, introducing methodologies like BEM to inject some uniqueness and modular style. - Source: / 10 months ago
  • Advice on getting better at CSS
    Then to layer ontop of that some kind of CSS methodology, say BEM for example but there are many others. As long as it's consistent throughout the whole project. Just a way of naming things and stopping styles leaking out and affecting things they shouldn't. Source: about 1 year ago
  • How to write type-safe CSS Modules
    At the time of writing, CSS class names are no longer global, solving many of the pains that methodologies like BEM were designed to solve, but without the manual effort. However, following BEM within CSS Modules can still be beneficial depending on the use case. - Source: / about 1 year ago
  • Is this layout possible? Backend guy trying to do frontend.
    Thanks for the reply! Is this what you are referring to? Will check it out. Source: about 1 year ago
  • is it worth it to learn a niche for an entry level dev?
    I'd use SASS & BEM to help keep my css organised, ensure you use css variables for your breakpoints, spacing, typography and colours in separate files. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Front-end dev has come full circle
    I myself—in a time when I mostly stuck to BEM, reaching its limits—used to despise Tailwind’s approach but after reading Tailwind creator Adam Wathan’s in-depth article about the general issues I teeth-gnashingly had to agree with the practical implications. But yes, polluting the markup with visual directives still feels wrong to me and I guess it will never feel right for someone who lived during the Web’s... Source: over 1 year ago
  • Tailwind CSS: A critique
    Tailwind isn't as friendly to reusable components compared to something like BEM. Applying styles to a component becomes tedious, and even Tailwind acknowledges this. - Source: / over 1 year ago
  • Advanced CSS?
    I'd reccomend taking a look at SASS, something like BEM for naming conventions, and a deep dive into how the cascade actually works is sooo beneficial for troubleshooting more complex CSS issues. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Past Informs the Present: Begin’s Approach to CSS
    As style sheets became the responsibility of larger and larger teams, CSS’ global scope and specificity were often at odds with team dynamics. Style collisions became increasingly common, where changes introduced by one developer would inadvertently affect styles elsewhere on the website. As the old joke goes: two CSS properties walk into a bar; a bar stool in a completely different bar falls over. As these issues... - Source: / over 1 year ago
  • Automated Frontend Workflow
    Create a .stylelintrc file extending these configs. It is included an optional rule to check if the CSS selector follows the BEM Name Convention. - Source: / over 1 year ago
  • Front-end Guide
    CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) are rules to describe how your HTML elements look. Writing good CSS is hard. It usually takes many years of experience and frustration of shooting yourself in the foot before one is able to write maintainable and scalable CSS. CSS, having a global namespace, is fundamentally designed for web documents, and not really for web apps that favor a components architecture. Hence, experienced... - Source: / over 1 year ago
  • How to avoid writing messy CSS?
    I like bem. Other than that just try to refactor into something organized after writing your initial version. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Creating Angular Tooltip Directive - Part 2: adding customisation
    I am using a BEM notation, so it will be eg. tooltip--below or tooltip--left, but feel free to adjust it to the CSS conventions of your project. - Source: / over 1 year ago
  • CSS hell
    Either way, I did provide you with a source. And it’s BEM. One of the core principles of BEM is that if a component can at all stand on its own, it should not have a nested selector (this is the B in BEM which stands for block). Source: over 1 year ago
