methodology BEM was invented at Yandex to develop sites which should be launched fast and supported for a long time. It helps to create extendable and reusable interface components.
I use BEM notation on everything I build now as its usefulness has proved itself over and over.
Itʼs less confusing than the other methods (i.e. SMACSS) but still provides us the good architecture we want (i.e. OOCSS) and with a recognisable terminology.
Combined with a preprocessor, BEM makes keeping your CSS modular and object-oriented a breeze.
Most common misspelling is “SMACCS”. I should just rename it to BEM.
This BEM stuff is next-level shit. Itʼs incredible how methodical it is.
BEM is far more than a HTML/CSS system. Iʼve got no plans to use it all; just adapted some of its ideas.
