Stylelint’s plugin documentation

I co-created stylelint—a modern open source CSS linter. Built on top of PostCSS and written for Node.js. It has over 150 built-in rules for linting stylesheets. It is used by GitHub and Facebook.

The stylelint website is built using Phenomic— a static site generator based on the React and Webpack ecosystems.

Mentos Fresh Filter Home Page

I led the development of the HTML and CSS — stylus, SMACSS architecture and BEM notation — for Mentos’ Fresh Filter responsive website at Stink Digital for BBH London.

I used progressive enhancement techniques to ensure the site adapts well to differences in resolution, screen size, input type, network speed and device speed.
