Light Straightforward CSS Grid

Skeleton vanilla CSS grid When you have been at it for a while you realize most of the time less is more, and so in that spirit below is a skeleton grid. It was created without any pre-processor in vanilla CSS, and has been field tested on enterprise level projects.

Updated IDE Fork

My improved IDE fork I would argue it is rare that re-inventing the wheel is the better choice compared to just improving an existing solution - I'm looking at you Salesforce Extensions for VS Code - and so since Salesforce opened sourced their IDE I have been updating it to suit my needs, mostly to speedup development: WSDL version 42 Ability to 'Disable 'Save to Server' dirty resource check' Ability to 'Disable 'Save to Server' synchronize check' Ability to 'Disable 'Save to Server' user confirmation check' Update Site and Public Repo Today a co-worker needed to get setup with SF development and so I have officially created a public repo and an update site for my version, just add the the below URL to your 'Help > Install New Software...' to get your copy.

It inverts your whole desktop using a smart conversion metric to keep colors still same, i.e. red is still red, images of course look funny but for text (i.e. programming) it is fantastic.
