Day 16: Table 🎶


A table is used to display tabular data.

The example component is visible below.


Christmas carols origins
Song 🎶 Country 🗺️
Silent Night 🇦🇹 Austria
Santa Claus Is Coming To Town 🇺🇸 United States of America
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 England
Deck The Halls 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 Wales
Jingle Bells 🇺🇸 United States of America
O Tannenbaum 🇩🇪 Germany

A few notes about this table component:

  • CSS Variables are used for colors,
  • the .advent-table tr:only-child selector is used to adding a thicker border to distinguish table head,
  • the .advent-table tr:not(:only-child):nth-child(even) selector is used to apply background color to every even sibling that is not the only one (see my article about “enabling” selectors).

The code:

<div class="advent-table">
<table>
<caption>Christmas carols origins</caption>
<thead>
<tr>
<th>Song 🎶</th>
<th>Country 🗺️</th>
</tr>
</thead>
<tbody>
<tr>
<td>Silent Night</td>
<td>🇦🇹 Austria</td>
