Neat little trick I learned from Joshua Hibbert's website, where he has effectively used this technique to design backgrounds stretching infinitely on either directions but the content respects the width.
High fives to the folks at GeekPause for featuring me on their blog, as Geek of the Week! Not sure if I deserve the title by any stretch of imagination but I am the first one to be featured there and I am sure that there are many more great folks that will be featured in the coming days.
Coming up with a cost of an article you’re writing as a guest author for some fancy blog could be quite tricky! Largely because you are unaware of the standard rates charged by fellow technical writers in the developer community and either parties do not want to end up on the losing side.
Thankfully, Expand2Web saved us by designing an infographics that aims to address all the queries and conveniently categorizes the cost based on various parameters that will potentially help you make up your mind.
Little old, but Boris Smus introduced a minimal design concept of a business card way back in 2010 that looks incredibly simple but still quite detailed. I immediately, launched Codepen and whipped up an experiment to build this concept using plain-old CSS.
I’m glad that the CSS working group wiki compiled
a list of mistakes that were made in the design of CSS and are willing to
correct if anyone invents a time machine. My favorite one’s are,
rgba() and hsla() should not exist, rgb() and hsl() should have gotten
an optional fourth parameter for opacity.
The currentcolor keyword should have a dash, current-color.
Box-sizing should be border-box by default.
background-size with one value should duplicate its value, not default the
second one to auto.
white-space: nowrap should be white-space: no-wrap.
It is very easy to screw things up, even for design decisions made to build a
language used on the web that literally affects the entire world. But it takes
a great deal of courage to acknowledge the mistakes commited in the past and
develop a genuine intention to resolve them.
Love it if you like it and do not forget to love other pens as well that you might find interesting. The experiment is responsive and works equally well on both small and large screens. Fonts used are Average, Average Sans and Italic subset is from Alegreya.
Although a bit old, Ivan Zuzak has written about an
interesting concept of using comments in issue tracker of Github hosted blog
Before, starting this blog, I experimented with various techniques to support
comments on blog post, but never thought about this unique concept. I am
surprised that this technique hasn’t become popular despite it coming to the
fore almost 3yrs ago.
I’ll definitely consider them to use it on my blog, someday in future.
I have used Unix for the major portion of my professional career, yet I have always failed to understand the intricacies surrounding the file permissioning system. This article is an attempt to dig deep and augment my understanding about them.
