Quite funny to think about what the UI could be. Being able to toggle any CSS property to a variable state, and have a panel with all the variables listed.
And along this feature, we could be able to bind any CSS property to a CMS value.
Support for this would result in site designs that were actually maintainable. Empower power users please. Can't believe its 2023 and support for variables does not exist.
This would be a very welcomed features. We are struggling with making our design, some of the components of which rely on CSS styling, more agile based on CMS content.
Web design has always baffled me from the beginning, not because its difficult to understand, but as a programer, how often web devs don't have the full advantage of working with a computer. If you can't easily scale a design, if you can't easily change 1 value to change many values, then things are wrong.I should be able to define things like common margins, give 'em a name, and slap it on as many elements as I want. The worst thing ever is when a client decides they like everything, but want to see it with box shadows increased from 3 3 to 2 2. Other elements play off that number, so its important to be able to simply make a single change instead of going through everything.
CSS variables on individual cms items would be nice, currently im trying to overlap the items a little
This is precisely what is missing from the designer. Thank you for posting this Vincent. The ability to define a variable to a specific property would be ENORMOUS! I hope this gets the attention it deserves.
Damn this would be good Vincent
Trying to do this with embed code right now. I can see how this would be awesome, especially if it could be integrated with IX2
