Day 12: Figure ๐Ÿ–ผ๏ธ


A figure element represents a graphic asset with an optional caption.

The example component is visible below.


Silvestar's profile image in black and white.
Silvestar (b&w)

A few notes about this picture component:

  • CSS Variables are used for colors,
  • the srcset attribute is used to define the sizes of the image based on pixel density,
  • the source element is used to define the MIME type of the image,
  • the loading="lazy" attribute is used to notify the browser to download the image when the user scrolls near the component.

The code:

<figure class="advent-figure">
<picture>
<source srcset="https://res.cloudinary.com/starbist/image/upload/w_600,h_600/v1638533826/PSX_20210122_073918_k01l3d.webp 2x, https://res.cloudinary.com/starbist/image/upload/w_300,h_300/v1638533826/PSX_20210122_073918_k01l3d.webp 1x" type="image/webp">
