Aech: An Ergonomic CSS Helper

Making it easier to style my new web projects.

This is part one of a series of blog posts where I talk about the work that went into building Rucksack, a new newsletter platform that I’m working on.

While working on Rucksack, I converged on a set of CSS styles that look great, are easy to apply consistently, and are fairly compact. I’ve since used them in a couple of other projects. Rather than copy-paste these styles from one project to another, though, I decided to spin them off into their own little module. It’s called Aech (named after a character from Ready Player One, a book I’m currently reading). Aech is inspired by paper.css.

Take a look at the Aech homepage or browse the source code over on GitHub.
