  • Designing Badges (And More) For A Conference

    To badge or not to badge? That is the question. Because badges — and a lot of stuff designed for conferences — often look the same. But if you have a little, different conference, you need different kinds of things. Badges included. It all started in 2013 with the first Kerning conference1. I was asked to design the official notebook: we ended up with a really typographic design for the cover and a funny pattern on the back. And an Easter egg on the cover — more on that later. It was a really funny project, so when my dear friend Cristiano Rastelli2, a member of Kerning’s…

    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,…

  • Is Your Responsive Design Working? Google Analytics Will Tell You

    Jon Arne Sæterås and Luca Passani
    28 Aug 2014 | 7:03 am
    Responsive web design has become the dominant method of developing and designing websites. It makes it easier to think “mobile first” and to create a website that is viewable on mobile devices. In the early days of responsive web design, creating breakpoints in CSS for particular screen sizes was common, like 320 pixels for iPhone and 768 pixels for iPad, and then we tested and monitored those devices. As responsive design has evolved, we now more often start with the content and then set breakpoints when the content “breaks.” This means that you might end up with quite a few…
  • Customizing WordPress Archives For Categories, Tags And Other Taxonomies

    Josh Pollock
    27 Aug 2014 | 9:47 am
    Most WordPress users are familiar with tags and categories and with how to use them to organize their blog posts. If you use custom post types in WordPress, you might need to organize them like categories and tags. Categories and tags are examples of taxonomies, and WordPress allows you to create as many custom taxonomies as you want. These custom taxonomies operate like categories or tags, but are separate. In this tutorial, we’ll explain custom taxonomies and how to create them. We’ll also go over which template files in a WordPress theme control the archives of built-in and custom…
  • A Quick Tour Of WordPress 4.0

    27 Aug 2014 | 5:32 am
    Today, WordPress has released the first release candidate1 (RC) for the upcoming 4.0 version. According to the official version numbering2, WordPress 4.0 is no more or less significant than 3.9 was or 4.1 will be. That being said, a new major release is always a cause for excitement! Let’s take a look at the new features the team at WordPress has been working on for us. Installation Language Since I’ve always used WordPress in English, it took me a while to realize how important internationalization is. 29% of all WordPress.com installations3 use a non-English language which is…

    Many of today’s hottest technology companies, both large and small, are increasingly using the concept of the minimum viable product (MVP) as way to iteratively learn about their customers and develop their product ideas. By focusing on an integral set of core functionality and corresponding features for product development, these companies can efficiently launch and build on new products. While the concepts are relatively easy to grasp, the many trade-offs considered and decisions made in execution are seldom easy and are often highly debated. This two-part series, looks into the product…

  • The (Not Just) jQuery Foundation

    Kris Borchers
    10 Jul 2014 | 11:48 am
    The jQuery Foundation’s mission has always been about more than just our namesake projects of jQuery, jQuery UI, and jQuery Mobile. We already host several projects such as Sizzle, QUnit and Globalize that are not dependent on the jQuery library. This wider web-oriented mission is evident in our jQuery Conferences, which span a wide range of developer concerns beyond jQuery, including Node, CSS, tooling, testing and much more. Over the years we’ve had talks on build tools, accessibility, security, performance, design patterns, and frameworks such as Ember and Angular. At our San…

    The jQuery and jQuery UI teams use Trac to do their bug reporting and tracking. The jQuery Core bug tracker could really use a Trac expert to migrate us to Trac 1.0 and fix a few nagging issues we’ve been having. If you’re an expert Trac-meister, or just someone with good Trac setup/configuration experience who’s up to the challenge, we’d love to talk with you! Send a message to dave(at)jquery.com and we’ll be in touch. Since some of you will inevitably ask: GitHub’s integration between issues and commits is wonderful, but it’s not anywhere near as…
  • Don’t Use jquery-latest.js

    Dave Methvin
    3 Jul 2014 | 7:38 am
    Earlier this week the jQuery CDN had an issue that made the jquery-latest.js and jquery-latest.min.js files unavailable for a few hours in some geographical areas. (This wasn’t a problem with the CDN itself, but with the repository that provides files for the CDN.) While we always hope to have 100% uptime, this particular outage emphasized the number of production sites following the antipattern of using this file. So let’s be clear: Don’t use jquery-latest.js on a production site. We know that jquery-latest.js is abused because of the CDN statistics showing it’s the…

    1 May 2014 | 2:33 pm
    Ah, the air is sweet with the scent of spring and new jQuery 1.11.1 and 2.1.1 are in bloom. These are minor patch releases and shouldn’t pose any major compatibility issues. Throw a Cinco de Mayo party and have your friends come over to test. If you dig up a problem, let us know at bugs.jquery.com, and be sure to provide a simple test case using jsfiddle.net or jsbin.com to demonstrate the problem. You can include these files directly from the jQuery CDN if you like, or copy them to your own local server. The 1.x branch includes support for IE 6/7/8 and the 2.x branch does not.

  • 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…

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 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…

    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…

    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!
  • MooTools on Bountysource

    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.

    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.

    ECMAScript 6 (ES6) still sounds like something from a far-away future. After all, it will only become a standard by mid 2015. However, its features are continually appearing in browsers and there are compilers that translate ES6 code to ES5 code. The latter is already a compelling solution, because the ECMAScript 6 feature set is already frozen. This blog post gives a brief overview of ECMAScript 6 features and describes tools that enable you to use them today. ECMAScript 6 highlightsThis section shows a few ECMAScript 6 highlights.
