As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m in the process of redesigning this web site. It’s very much a work in progress.
As a first step I’m building a pattern library and I’ve decided to open source the repo during the build process. I’m using Pattern Lab for the purpose.
At the time of writing, I’ve done atoms and some of the molecules – more work needs to be completed. There are a number of open issues to reach version 1.0, these will be added to as I hit templates and pages.
I’m using the build the learn the process of using Pattern Lab. No doubt there are features of Pattern Lab I am missing, I hope to go back to implement these. I’m a little lost around variables stored in JSON files.
While building the pattern library, I’m generally not thinking about how WordPress outputs particular code. I’m fussy about HTML, so will be coding up filters to match my needs.
It bears repeating, this is a work in progress. Once I’m a little further down the path I’ll be sending the implementation back to the designer so anything I’ve missed can be picked up on.
