July 31st, 2014

I wanted to clarify a little bit, and hope this could add a little to the conversation around well-architected, modular CSS: At Tighten we do use BEM… but we also use OOCSS. And SMACSS. At the same time.

At the end he mentions using BEM with Sass, but if you prefer Less I found this tip

Free yourself from spaghetti CSS and go read his post. Especially if you have a large project.
