Missed last week so we have lots of links this week. Including the drama with Peace App and Content Blockers.
With talk of headless CMS’s, I’m excited to listen to this podcast.
If you’ve ever tried range inputs, they are kind of a pain. Browser compatibility is sketchy.
Mobile navs are hard. Try to keep vertical screen real estate while packing in all your nav’s links.
Chris has lots of great things to say on this issue. One great takeaway: “For instance, Ghostery offers to block Typekit for you. How does your site look with custom fonts blocked?”
Whoa! That’s an idea. I could see this being a solution for certain projects.
TwelveSouth makes really well-designed products. Their website isn’t any different.
What struck me about this content blocker: “If web fonts load too slowly, you can disable them for even faster browsing.”
Spit View in iOS 9 is yet another reason why responsive wins. Here is a real use case for resizing windows. Maybe $(window.resize()) might be something to consider now if you are changing the DOM based on screen width.
Publishing is going to change over the coming years (months even).
I’ve always loved the idea of exposing kids to computers and how they really work. We’ll have to wait and see if this spreads to other school districts.
“I don’t. It’s impossible to keep up with everything new that’s coming out. Your goal should be only to be aware of things at a high-level until you need them. Skim over headlines or links shared by people on Twitter so you’re aware of what’s going on, but don’t waste time trying to master everything. Wait until you need it.” This is my approach too.
“iPhones are great, I just think Apple’s browser policy is awful and they don’t prioritise the web.” I’m not sure that’s entirely true. I think they prioritize Safari performance and a major side affect of that is not quickly adopting cutting edge web technologies. His point still stands though: you are missing out on innovation if you are on iOS.
This is a topic that interests me greatly. It’s going to force us to prioritize performance, especially with ads.
