CSS Variables for Real Life

Matt Colman Senior Software Engineer Atlassian

CSS Variables is still a bit of a buzz word. Many of us have googled it, looked at some examples, maybe even done a tutorial, but how many of us have used CSS Variables in production?

I want to show you how and why we used CSS Variables in production in the new deployments view in Jira. More importantly I want to show you how to spot a potential use case for CSS Variables so you're ready for it when it's staring you in the face! Oh, and our use case is not dark mode or theming!
