Cool Little CSS Grid Tricks for Your Blog
This past week I built a project I call Sonnet 18 that compares GitHub repositories. It was more challenging than I anticipated! I thought it’d be a simple GitHub API call, and turned into a very big lesson in how routing works in Next.js and its newer features. I ended up writing a blog post about my learnings, if you’d like to check it out.

This week’s question:
Build a fixed list combobox.
A fixed list combo box is when a user can type a certain string, and there is a list of strings that is designed to help the user arrive at a value. Here is an example of one! Build something that will take in a set of strings and return matching suggestions as the user types.
