Easier to read Easier to write Prevents refactoring errors, allows for dry-er code. No more typing a parent div 100 times, with a possibility of screwing it up. 08:13 - When to use nesting
Nesting is often overused Only nest what you would have written un-nested with a short hand (e.g. don’t nest just for the sake of it) .container .item {} .container .item a {} Use it for scoping 10:06 - Nesting prefixes
In order to nest CSS, you must first start it with a nesting selector .tweet { & > p { } &.media-included { color: green; } & + .tweet { } // sibling & p { } // descentang } Component-based — tweet, card, company, Link article{ color: blue; & { color: red; } } and must be the first child of a compound selector
12:44 - @nest rule / media queries
Mostly just a visual way to show nested .foo { display: grid; @media(orientation: landscape) { & { grid-auto-flow: column; } } } .foo { display: grid; @media (orientation: landscape) { & { grid-auto-flow: column; } @media (min-inline-size > 1024px) { & { max-inline-size: 1024px; } } } } /* equivalent to .foo { display: grid; } @media (orientation: landscape) { .foo { grid-auto-flow: column; } } @media (orientation: landscape) and (min-inline-size > 1024px) { .foo { max-inline-size: 1024px; } } */ 16:30 - How to use nesting today
