Today’s Readings

There is a good bit of reading involved in the various subjects within BoxBox’s website, but it doesn’t take long to be impressed with their improved approach to UI/UX design… I love the opening lines:

UI/UX design is closer to industrial design than graphic design. User interfaces are not pixel perfect images – they’re complex systems that must be designed for use, documented for engineering, and continually improved.

Hammer, meet nail, on the head…

Hmm, then there is Adobe’s Project Comet… I sense a trend… And it is a good trend…

Okay, this is getting crazy now: Webflow takes it even a step further by connecting your fancy new design tool to live data, calling it “the world’s first visual CMS“…

walks us through morphing SVG elements. Very useful stuff!

Or, we could just use Greensocks’ MorphSVG plugin and pretty much have it all done for us… :-)

When most of us think of alternate style sheets, we likely think of print, or maybe a special one for IE, right? But how many of us think about RTL? I remember being quite impressed with when I first saw the transition their site undergoes for RTL. Well, , the RTL Wizard himself, brings us Building RTL-Aware Web Apps & Websites: Part 1 and Part 2. Great reads!

A lengthy, but worthy Flexbox article, illustrating use-cases, approaches, troubleshooting, and more!

By now I hope we all agree that Service Workers are an amazing technology, whether we are already using it or not. But implementation can be tricky, at best. Well maybe UpUp could solve all your problems. It is a free, open-source, Service Worker implementation, requiring nothing more than one script and a single command… Check-out there interactive getting started page (watch the iPhone as you scroll down the page).

And while we’re talking about cool, (relatively) new shit, how well do you know WebSockets? I only got 4 out of 6, maybe I ought to take the Tuts+ course!

And finally, ever wonder what every Wikipedia entry would look like on a single timeline graph? Wonder no more

Happy reading,
