    The creative process takes a lot of time, and web designers know it. When you factor in feedback from clients, the process takes even longer: numerous emails, revision notes, chats and meetings — that’s what it normally takes to find out precisely what the client wants. Fortunately, today’s web provides various solutions to optimize the communication process. The first web services that allow users to report bugs on web pages appeared several years ago. Since then, tools and technologies have emerged to make the process more convenient and user-friendly. Today’s market…
  • Scaling up CSS

    CSS has a habit of creeping up on you. If you’re not careful, your humble stylesheet can go from a few flourishes to a giant maintenance tangle. Before you can say “12-deep nested div”, your in a world of duplication and complexity that prevents you from making timely user-interface updates. [Medium's](https://medium.com) one organisation that’s been through the growing pains of CSS and Jacob Thornton (“Fat”) has an in-depth case study we can all learn from. Medium’s CSS is actually pretty f***ing good is the claim and it’s hard to argue with the…
  • Why Companies Need Full-Time Product Managers (And What They Do All Day)

    17 Sep 2014 | 5:54 am
    What is a product manager? What do product managers do all day? Most importantly, why do companies need to hire them? Good questions. The first confusion we have to clear up is what we mean by “product.” In the context of software development, a product is the website, application or online service that users interact with. Depending on the size of the company and its products, a product manager could be responsible for an entire system (such as a mobile app) or part of a system (such as the checkout flow on an e-commerce website across all devices). This is confusing because, in most…

    7 Mar 2013 | 6:35 pm
    This week, Chrome For Android M26 was announced. It has the literally-awesome ability to record video via `getUserMedia()`, but enough about making Skype irrelevant. What’s even more interesting is the new data compression feature. Which, to be clear, is experimental, has to be switched on, doesn’t apply to secure (SSL) sites, and it’s only running in the beta app. With this feature, Google will be delivering streamlined responses, leading to substantial performance improvements and bandwidth savings. In the latest Mobile Web Thursday’s, Google’s Pete Le Page…
  • Here comes Traversty traversing the DOM

    1 Nov 2012 | 6:59 pm
    The Traversty DOM utility has as its purpose to allow you to traverse the DOM and manage collections of DOM elements. Proponents admit core Traversty traversal methods are inspired by Prototype’s DOM Traversal toolkit, but now in a multi-element environment that is more like jQuery and less like Prototype’s single element implementation.

    What has sometimes been described as mobile middleware has taken a new tack. Now, the idea of Backend as a Service (BaaS) has begun to take off in the mobile application development space. Proponents of BaaS say it helps developers easily build mobile apps, or any other applications connected to a cloud backend. Some of their views suggest a wholly new computer architecture is in the works. Fact Fractal is among the horses running in the BaaS stakes.

    WinJS is a JavaScript framework for Windows 8, and David Rousset uses it here to create a quick RSS reader. He shows how in a tutorial series. This first article shows the way to build a welcome screen that employs WinJS ListView control. Blend and CSS3 are employed. The second tutorial shows work on the detail view displayed after a click-on-item. This uses a transition animation. Time to go through the two tutorials is estimated at 30 minutes.

  • Making Modal Windows Better For Everyone

    15 Sep 2014 | 4:23 am
    To you, modal windows1 might be a blessing of additional screen real estate, providing a way to deliver contextual information, notifications and other actions relevant to the current screen. On the other hand, modals might feel like a hack that you’ve been forced to commit in order to cram extra content on the screen. These are the extreme ends of the spectrum, and users are caught in the middle. Depending on how a user browses the Internet, modal windows can be downright confusing. Modals quickly shift visual focus from one part of a website or application to another area of (hopefully…
  • Are Your Internal Systems Damaging Your Business?

    The internal systems of many organizations have shocking user interfaces. This costs companies in productivity, training and even the customer experience. Fortunately, we can fix this. “How come I can download an app on my phone and instantly know how to use it, yet need training to use our content management system? Shouldn’t our system be intuitive?” This was just one of the comments I heard in a recent stakeholder interview. People are fed up with inadequate internal systems. Many of those I interviewed had given up on the official software. Instead, they use tools like…

  • YUI Gallery Deprecation Announcement

    Julien Lecomte
    16 Jun 2014 | 10:47 am
    Since it was first introduced in 2009, the YUI Gallery has been a great tool for web developers, allowing them to contribute to the YUI library in a more open way, make their YUI modules more discoverable, and deploy them at scale using Yahoo’s CDN. As a result, the YUI Gallery now contains over 600 modules. Since that time, the industry has drastically changed and evolved. New tools, which did not yet exist when the YUI Gallery was introduced, have since been widely adopted by the community. GitHub, package managers (npm, bower), build tools (grunt and its myriad of plugins) and free or…

We have also updated the YUI Library website to reflect the changes in this release. What’s New In This Release This point release fixes an issue with Loader that was discovered after the release of 3.17.1. If you are currently using 3.17.1 and have encountered Loader issues you are encouraged to update to this version.

    We are happy to announce the release of YUI 3.17.1! This release can be found on the free Yahoo CDN, through npm, and through a downloadable .zip archive. We have also updated the YUI Library website to reflect the changes in this release. YUI 3.17.0 was found to have an issue with Loader right before it was about to be fully released, so we decided to update the version number to reflect this fix (since 3.17.0 had already been deployed to CDN, npm, etc.) Do not use YUI 3.17.0 due of this Loader issue. The changes listed below are almost exclusively from YUI 3.17.0 with the exception of the…

    We recently hosted a Dojo Community Day in Brugg, Switzerland on the Saturday following a week of Dojo workshops. We had about 25 Dojo users and committers join us from England, France, Netherlands, Germany, Romania, Austria, and Switzerland for a fun day of hacking and discussions about current and future directions of Dojo. We began the day by welcoming the group at the modern university in Brugg/Windisch and, thanks to SitePen, we had Dojo t-shirts and stickers for everyone. After some initial time to socialize and get everyone situated with wifi, I delivered a short talk on the current…

    The large companies that use Dojo are widely known. This series features lesser known users of Dojo, and their stories. This time, we interview Gordon Smith from HPCC Systems, a subsidiary of LexisNexis RISK Solutions. Q: How did you first learn about Dojo? A: Through Google / Stack Overflow. I suspect my “discovery” of Dojo was a bit different to the norm, as prior to 2013 I had never really done any Web Development. Up until then I was predominantly a C++ Developer, some Java and a smattering of C#. Initially I wanted to knock together a single page proof of concept, consisting…

This time, we interview William Grzybowski from iXsystems, a California-based company and creators of FreeNAS. Q: How did you first learn about Dojo? A: Around Dojo 1.3. I was tasked to write a tree menu and I was pointed to a Dojo example of the dijit/tree. The learning curve was higher compared to other simple frameworks but it was totally worth it. Q: Why did you choose Dojo? A: We were looking for a JavaScript toolkit capable of build an UI-rich application, Dojo did…

  • 1.5.1 is out!

    29 Aug 2014 | 5:25 am
    Today we release MooTools Core and More versions 1.5.1. This continues our improvement work for both Core and More and introduces also some features that were in the queue for being added. This release fixes also a regression related to the mousewheel event. When preparing the 1.5 release we decided that Core 1.5.x will work with More 1.5.x. This means that, inside the 1.5 space, versions should be compatible and you might be seeing Core or More releases that are not simultaneous. In 1.5.1 we added a new dist/ folder in Core, present at the tagged commit, for those who want the Core source,…

    More stable and well tested than ever 1.5 is a HUGE bug fix release with roughly 240 commits addressing new browsers that have entered the market as well as new features in the JavaScript language. The team spent a ton of time instrumenting the tests to run against Travis CI and Sauce Labs so that the source code would be easier to test. This will help to make new contributions, fixes and features to the framework and release much more rapidly. It’s easy to underestimate the value of all the work that went into the project over the past two months. What’s different in version 1.5…
  • Anyone using Core/Browser.js?

    ibolmo
    6 Feb 2014 | 3:12 pm
    On our road to Version 1.5, we’re trying to eliminate some bad practices from our code. One of the things we’ve just gotten rid of, is that a few last pieces of our libraries still depended on Browser UA detection. This has all been eliminated in favour of feature detection. To help us reach a decision on where to go with the Browser module, here’s a quick survey. Reply via @mootools or leave a comment here. Are you using the Browser module? If so, what are you using it for? Cheers!

    30 May 2013 | 12:11 pm
    Today we enabled Bountysource for MooTools Core and MooTools More. Bountysource is a funding platform for Open Source projects like MooTools. It works as follows: there is an issue on GitHub. You, or anyone else, can create a bounty to back the issue. Then some developer (either a MooTools Team Member or some other contributor) fixes the issue. Once it gets merged and he or she can collect the bounty! We think this could help to prioritize issues and to increase community contributions. After all, who doesn’t like to get some pocket money to buy a beer or MooTools t-shirt!

    Smart GWT 5.0 and SmartClient 10.0 have a lot of exciting upgrades for mobile applications, including a new Remote Debugging feature for the Developer Console. While the Developer Console already works on mobile devices, it currently appears as a separate tab or browser window, and phone-sized devices don’t have the screen space necessary to use tools like the Watch Tab. Remote Debugging allows you to run the Developer Console on your desktop machine to debug a page running on a mobile device.

    One of the users of our DHTMLX library, Sergei Sheinin, has created a JavaScript Library API named JS2DX. We would like to present Sergei’s overview of it and we suppose that some of you will find JS2DX useful and appropriate for your own projects: “While developing large quantity of database interfaces with DHTMLX framework I felt weighed down by verbosity of JavaScript syntax and having to reuse multiple lines of code that instantiated interface components. Another hurdle that stood out was that the interface components were not nested inside the code. For example a page with…

    At the end of July 2014, TC39 [1] had another meeting, during which the last details of the ECMAScript 6 (ES6) module syntax were finalized. This blog post gives an overview of the complete ES6 module system. Module systems for current JavaScriptJavaScript does not have built-in support for modules, but the community has created impressive work-arounds. The two most important (and unfortunately incompatible) standards are: CommonJS Modules: The dominant implementation of this standard is in Node.js (Node.js modules have a few features that go beyond CommonJS). Characteristics: Compact syntax…

  • Preventing function signature mismatch in ES5 and ES6

    In some cases, using a function (or method) with a callback can lead to surprising results – if the signature of the latter does not match the expectations of the former. This blog post explains this phenomenon and suggests fixes. Function signature mismatchLet’s look at an example [1]: > ['1','2','3'].map(parseInt) [1,NaN,NaN] Here, map() expects the following signature: callback(element, index, array) But parseInt() has the signature: parseInt(string, radix?) It’s not a problem that parseInt’s arity is less than the 3 expected by map; JavaScript does not complain if you ignore…

    The following video is a recording of the talk “JavaScript coding tips”, which I held 2014-05-16 at the Sud Web Conference in Toulouse, France. Bonus: See how I feel about comma first style (I was much meaner than I remember). I don’t personally like it, but I respect how creatively it solves a problem. Hear me speak French after the talk. Material: Slides “Popular Coding Conventions on Github” by Outsider: what coding conventions do people use on GitHub and how frequently? “A Meta Code Style Guide”, chapter 26 of “Speaking JavaScript”, which covers some of the topics of…

    The asterisk () is used by ECMAScript 6 to mark generator-related constructs [1]. In each case, you have considerable freedom w.r.t. adding or omitting whitespace before and after this character. This blog post explains how to best format the asterisk and why. The generator asteriskThe generator asterisk appears in three locations in ECMAScript 6: Generator function declarations and expressions:function* generatorFunc(x, y) { ... } Concise generator method definitions [2]:{ * generatorMethod(x, y) { ... } } The recursive yield operator:yield* anotherGenFunc(123) Reasonable – and legal –…
