Homebrew is pretty damn sweet if you are a developer on Mac OS X. It’s the package manager that doesn’t suck.
But the developers that run Homebrew aren’t PHP developers. And their official policy of not providing a formula (homebrew’s name for a “package”) for software already included in Mac OS X means that PHP wasn’t going to be available in Homebrew.
I often get asked about recommendations I may have for good resources for learning CSS. I learned CSS during the dark ages. The only online resource was the spec itself (light blue paper background and all.) So I’ve never had a need to go out and find good CSS resources.
This Friday through Sunday, I’m going to San Francisco to attend a sprint to “rebuild the theme layer” in Drupal 8. This is the next exciting step in a journey I started nearly 3 years ago.
I’ll hope you’ll join me at the sprints as we combat Drupal 7 and the Arrays of Doom!

Today I came across some notes I made 5 years ago in March of 2007. In it I dream of a world where I could define my own “CSS keywords”. Today I have something better. I have Sass.
