I started learning github actions (and wrote about it). Not true. I was reading about them, trying to understand how they work. I invested one day, after clarifying the terms for me I figured out that I can go as simple as using some actions from the github marketplace and be done. But I prefer to understand what's under the hood. So I did dive in and found that there are multiple repos and more, there is a power behind github actions that seems to go beyond what travis, drone or jenkins offer.

Which unit to use, rem, em or even px (just to mention the most common units) when writing CSS seems to be an ongoing discussion. For people entering the space of web development the hurdle just gets higher, the complexity is continuously growing. There are more units than ever, I counted 21, there is more sites to learn from. It is not easy to figure out where and how to start.
I will try to analyze this a bit applying what I know and have learnt over the last 25 years of web development.
