Migrating a 5 yr old Sass project to React
Back in 2014 I contracted at Forbes while they were migrating to Angular. It was before React was blowing up and I was still spending most of my time coding CSS. The project consisted of slicing PSD’s and developing responsive HTML/SCSS templates for ForbesLife, before handing them off to the senior developer to refactor with Angular.
It was a fairly large codebase, so going through the old files was a bit of a process. But the code clean up / update was actually minimal. What I opted to do first was migrate the project to webpack – and use the sass-autocompile package instead of Koala. I then grabbed some Materialize styles to create a nav header, and updated the media queries for 2019.
In the near future, I will probably redo this again with Material-UI grid instead of Sass. It worked well on a prior project!
