vanilla code
Vanilla code is code written without recourse to dependencies on external libraries or frameworks. For our purposes, vanilla code means:
  • Using semantic HTML written directly by the coder, rather than generated by an external library, such as React. This also means no component libraries not written by the end user.
  • Using plain CSS without resorting to an external library such as Tailwind.
  • Writing simple JavaScript by hand using built in Web APIs in the browser, rather than external libraries.
virtual communities
A virtual community is a social network of individuals who connect through specific social media, potentially crossing geographical and political boundaries in order to pursue mutual interests or goals.
Some of the most pervasive virtual communities are online communities operating under social networking services.
Craft Code is a virtual community.
