CSS Counters Game Primer Tutorial

How best to do a tutorial about a CSS feature doing very Javascript’y things? Yes, CSS Counters represents a CSS way to create dynamic content, which is usually the domain of Javascript scripting, as a lot of you would know.

We decided to do this by designing a rudimentary Social Distancing Squares Game where …

  • a webpage is initiated with the first such square … and then …
  • any other squares are located where the user clicks them (at their top left) … and …
  • as far as scoring goes …
    1. a numbered (via CSS Counters) square (perhaps linked to a Name entered in by the user) can score positively by keeping a respectably small distance from others … but …
    2. a numbered square can score negatively if too close to another square
    3. a numbered square score will not change if “out of the loop” too far away from another

… so containing a modicum of “tactics scope” (yet, mainly luck), for flying_number_div.html‘s live run link. Pretty obviously, it would be a doddle for Javascript to do what the CSS Counters are doing, but that is not the point of learning new approaches and ways of achieving HTML content.
