We Make Websites

Coding Guidelines

Standards, guidelines, and best practice we follow whilst developing at We Make Websites on our Frame framework.

Table of contents

  1. HTML
  2. Liquid
  4. JavaScript
  5. VS Code

Why do we need guidelines?

When working on large, long-running projects, with dozens of developers of differing specialities and abilities, it is important that we all work in a unified way in order to:

  • Keep the code base maintainable
  • Keep code transparent, sane, and readable
  • Keep the code base scalable
  • Maintain the code base's performance

Applying the guidelines

When you are writing new code you are expected to maintain the guidelines, if you update an existing feature you are expected to update any non-adhering code that you interact with or change. This means you are not expected to fix the whole file when adding new functionality, just the code you write or change.

Frame 1 & 2

You must apply all guidelines manually; there is no automatic linting available.

Frame 3

Use yarn format to automatically check your CSS and JS code. You will have to manually apply the guidelines to HTML and Liquid as there is no linter available.

🗒 Note: Older Frame 3 projects will not adhere to the new HTML and Liquid guidelines as the guidelines were written after Frame 3 was launched.

Can I contribute to the guidelines?
