Magic Tricks with CSS Houdini

Sam Richard ยท Full Stack Fest 2017

This talk will focus on the working being done by the CSS Houdini Task Force to provide us with the ability to extend the browser's render engine with JavaScript, above and beyond simply running JS on the main thread or a web worker. This talk will focus on the following:

  • What is the Houdini Task Force?
  • What types of things can we expect to see coming from them?
  • What's available today and where, what's going to be available in the future
  • Practical examples, with code, that can be played with today

As what is available is currently being worked on, this talk with be as up-to- date of an overview of what's available and coming in the future as can be provided. This stuff is definitely in the future type stuff, but learning about it now will prepare attendees for what they can expect browsers to be capable of doing in the upcoming years.
