Inspired by past student projects that made meaningful contributions to the open source community, a group of students in our Remote Beta program went into their final project looking for a problem to be solved. After investigating several avenues, they conceived of and built Purify CSS, a tool that speeds up apps by removing unused components related to the staple design language CSS. Since Purify CSS was released, the reaction from the developer community has been overwhelmingly positive, with coders already adding to the framework and using it in their projects.
Jim O’Brien has always been interested in front-end design, and now, midway through the Hack Reactor course, he can start to make substantial additions to that field. In his limited spare time as a Hack Reactor student, he began looking around for developer resources for transitioning between various states in an app in a visually pleasing way.
