    Documentation about css-modules

    We’re using React, Nextjs, and CSS Modules. React is a frontend framework great for building dynamic and stateful UI. Nextjs enables server-side rendering out of the box, which leads to faster and more performant web pages. CSS modules allow styles to be scoped to the component they apply to. This is important as a codebase scales and class name collisions are more likely. You can read more about the challenges of CSS at scale here.

    Visual primitives for the component age. Use the best bits of ES6 and CSS to style your apps without stress 💅

    We wanted the ability to serve creator-specific CSS styles for each page. As a result, we couldn’t simply hardcode the styles in the applications. Performance was also an important factor so we wanted to avoid css-in-js frameworks like styled-components, which increase bundle size. More info on the impact of css-in-js on performance here.
