Using responsive font sizes

Reading time: 1min.

Today Chad Ostrowski, a fellow engineer at Citrusbyte, shared an article he wrote: CSS pro tips: responsive font-sizes and when to use which units. After reading it, I couldn’t help myself and adapted some of the tips there to this site. It’s now much easier to maintain, I think, as I’ve removed all previous media queries, but I had to add one:

@media only screen and (min-device-width: 1200px) {
  html { font-size: calc(1em + 0.5vw); }
}

Without this the text on my machine looks too big. I need to work on this, I think.
