Keepin' it Simple: Writing Vanilla CSS and JavaScript Only

You know what's cool about writing vanilla CSS and JavaScript, and NOT using minification tools?

Why is this cool?

Others - especially new/junior devs - can come along and easily inspect your code to learn from it.

As an example, here's a very simple (and silly) game I wrote in about 50 lines of JavaScript and about 200 lines of CSS.

Enjoy learning (or filing a PR to make the game better)!

Compare the simplicity of that, with trying to figure out what CSS classes are what, and what JS does X or Y or Z on my blog site (built with React/Gatsby + Drupal)
