One of the main reasons for having coding standards is to keep your code readable by everyone. By enforcing standards and formatting, the code base becomes consistent, and anyone can easily understand the structure of the code because he will be more familiar with what to expect. It is also very useful when a new developer joins the team because once he is familiar with the patterns, he will be able to easily read the existing code, which results in a more pleasant experience.
Here are some of the JS libraries that have made my JS development life much easier. I know that libraries change and new ones sprout, but currently here are a few that I have kept in my toolbox.
This year I worked on a project which involved populating a huge HTML table (up to 1,048,576 rows by 16,384 columns) cell-by-cell, with data retrieved via ajax calls. Needless to say, performance was not good.
Adding a default text display in a text input is a common way to label a text input in order to provide instruction and clarity for a user. Here is a simple implementation using jQuery.
Flipboard, iPad app of the year in 2010.
Sporting a very intuitive interface, flipboard is still an inspiration for designing applications.
A few months ago, we were asked to create a showcase iOS web app. Among the requested features, was to give it a flipboard effect.
Today Grio launched a new website, a new blog, and a free product.
I’m going to tell you about the product, which is called Poll.li (see http://poll.li).
Simply put, Poll.li is a way of voting on content using emoticons. You can think of it as a like button with more variety. Similar to like, Poll.li can be used as a voting mechanism for web users.
Web mapping services are become more popular as more applications are required to display a considerable amount of data on a map. Applications use a map view most of the time to show single points but clusters of data are becoming more popular.
Before moving forward with any of the web mapping services, it is better to understand what the application really needs from the map provider. In this case our system needs just two features:
· Clustering data
· Showing a single marker on the map
Last night I was rummaging through some of my past projects doing a little winter cleaning, and I stumbled upon this jQuery plugin that I wrote a while back. I ran the code to see if it still functions (it was using jQuery 1.3). And to my pleasant surprise, the code still runs like a charm. So, I just want to take the time to share it with you all.
