Typo,

Aside

The compiled CSS has two linter warnings. We can avert those warnings while we’re here…

  1. Not all user agents can be trusted to support rgba (alpha channel). A default background-color property is recommended
  2. @import hogs the download channel and does not permit asynchronous downloading of files.

We can address #1 with,

    background-color: white;               /* non-alpha state */
    background-color: $translucent-white;

And #2 with,

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Pacifico">

in index.html , and remove,

@import url(https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Pacifico);

from main.scss.
