A brand-new project and my first (here) in Node. It’s a simple-to-use converter to make HTML out of XML docs. I’m hoping to add other output formats later on.
One of the coolest features in HTML5 is the data attribute. You can now build out attributes on your own to customize content as you see fit. They aren’t rendered by the browser, simply added to the objects as data for you to play with. Let’s have a look.
Ever wanted to load a podcast (or several) onto your web site, but didn’t have the resources to make a proxy to get around cross-domain scripting issues? Worry no more! PodRadio.js is here.
I had a problem that I got to solve using something I rarely (if ever) use: jQuery.inArray(). While working on a new tool for doing Improv practice, I came across an interesting problem that might be worth sharing.
Got to playing around with Chrome extensions and put this one together. There are a few simple plugin demos out there, but I thought this one was short and sweet.
Just add it (and jQuery) to your page, then define which HTML elements you want to make the snap points. I love simple-to-use code, don’t you?
I’ll add onto it later as new ideas pop into my head. Right now, it’s using a timeout to account for the fact that there’s no scroll-end event in the DOM or jQuery. I’m not a huge fan of timeouts, but in this case it seems to work. I’d like something more elegant going forward.
Getting started building an API can be tough if all you’re looking at are big, monstrous (but useful) APIs. To combat this, I’ve built a really simple API to redirect users based on the hash in their URL. It initializes, take external data, and returns a response block.
I’m still amazed at how often we’re passing up the chance to use HTML5 tags in our documents. It’s hard to break old habits, I know, but it’s time to dump the mountains of DIV tags and get with some semantic markup. There are several awesome tags to start using in HTML5, but I wanted to hit six good ones to start people off.
You all remember parts of speech, right? Nouns, verbs, adjectives, pronouns, and so on from elementary school, right?
Well, some of you do.
