It’s been ten years since CSS Zen Garden launched with its goal to excite and inspire people to build creative designs with the much more limited tools CSS offered at the time. A decade later, it’s back. Given how the CSS landscape has changed since the original CSS Zen Garden, it will be interesting to see what people create with the new requirements.
So for the tenth anniversary, the Zen Garden is open for business once more. I’ve thrown the codebase on Github, given the dusty copy a refresh, started the conversion of the site to HTML5, and brought all of the existing designs kicking and screaming into the modern age. The work isn’t done yet, but it’s a darn sight closer to how we would build it these days. If you see an area that needs help, consider sending a patch. (Here’s the current list of issues to resolve, for example.)
