Today’s Readings

As developers we like to break designs down into reusable objects as much as possible, to reduce code, reduce error, reduce development time, and increase consistency. But sometimes that abstraction is hard if the designs themselves are too dissimilar. That’s why I loved reading Object-Oriented UX. Long article, but worth the read!

Pretty cool Page Stack Navigation demo… And pretty heavy quotes among the page samples, too…

Nice walk-through on mastering, and reacting to, screen orientation.

Using the aria-owns attribute makes sense, but it is a shame that the example used to illustrate its usefulness is simply illformed code… I would like to see an example of proper coding that would make this ARIA attribute useful…

and present a nice Critical Path CSS video. More of a resource about resources, but certainly worth watching. And, is it just me, or is Addy developing a British accent?? ;-)

navigator.mediaDevices() is a Promise-based method for determining a device’s input and output devices via two methods: enumerateDevices() and getUserMedia().

jQuery Tips Everyone Should Know. Indeed, a fine collection!

Hmm, Rendering SVG Paths in WebGL is seriously impressive!

Also quite impressive is ‘s canvas starfield. And while Dudley mentions that this could serve as a cool background element, I think it could also be a cool bookmarklet, if pushed to fullscreen! But I’m with Christian on this one, it begs for animation!! :-)

Really nice collection of video tutorials on modular, object-oriented JS!

Great Visual Guide to CSS3 Flexbox Properties.

Very exciting to see Client Hints landing in Chrome! Next generation responsive images, indeed!! Hope they start appearing in other browsers soon, too

Interesting HTTP/1 vs. HTTP/2 page load simulator. Not so sure about it though, both tests that I ran said HTTP/1 was faster

Paradeiser is a 1.3kb, CSS-only hiding navigation menu. Very nice!

GitTown is a pretty slick Git plugin, offering a slew of commands that perform multiple steps for you. Really cool stuff!

And finally, the future of the Wayback Machine looks like it will be quite rosy!

Happy reading,
Atg
