Tips and Tricks on Web Application Development

Posted · Category: Information, License Free

If you ever intend to develop a web application, I believe you have already had the idea what and how the application is. If this is not the case, I do not think meditations at home will help you to get amazing ideas. A web application will be constructive and productive only if they are innovative or tailor-made to demands. I prefer looking around to feel the trend and sense people’s need. There is also plenty of information at the internet. Digg, StumbleUpon and Delicious is such a web site of revealing the trend of needs that I shall not miss.

Inspiration and Design

When the type of application you decided to develop has been finalized, the user interface and the homepage, i.e. the very first thing that users perceive, is the determinant factor whether your application will be successful or not. A good design of the homepage/user interface may attract and so retains users while a bad one shall repulse users forever. Inspiration may flash through your mind. Yet, a look at the high standard CSS Galleries, e.g. CSS Remix and CSS Mania will certainly provides you with much inspiration. You can also enjoy top quality web applications sites like Webware and SEOmoz’s Web 2.0 Awards and see how an intuitive, elegant and yet powerful web applications may be.

Choosing a Framework

Now that the design and features of your web application are ready, you then choose the best or your most familiar programming language to begin with. No matter what programming language you are going to use, I strongly suggest choose one with “framework”. Read the rest of this entry »

Sweet Titles Transparent and Fading Tooltips

Posted · Category: CC License, Tooltips

Sweet Titles Fading Tooptips is not a knock-off from NICE Titles nor is it trying to improve on Dunstan’s revised attempt. And it most definitely isn’t ripped from one of those event-handler infested scripts from Dynamic Drive . No. It’s none of those. Instead he had two goals for this script.

  1. Make the code cleaner and much more condense – with in fact – less code
  2. Improve the tooltip effect

Cool notable feature that Sweet Titles (as well as Nice Titles) has is that the JavaScript is unobtrusive which of course as we all know, in and of itself, improves accessibility. Another thing I like about Sweet Titles is the appearance of the tooltips, it looks very nice.

Jitsu User Interface Toolkit for Rich Web Applications

Posted · Category: Framework, MIT License

jitsu.pngJitsu contains an integrated set of tools to enable developers to build and deploy sophisticated user interfaces for web applications. These include an Xml markup language, page compiler, data binding engine, JavaScript runtime, control library, runtime inspector, animation engine, cross-platform library, Ajax, and back button support. Jitsu applications use DHTML and run in most modern web browsers.

As a startup with a consumer focus, their budget for software is minimal. They like free and open-source technologies like Apache, Linux, MySql. They couldn’t find any open source Ajax frameworks that supported compiled Xml and data binding. So they built their own, and released Jitsu under an open source license.

Jitsu is still in its infancy and the code provided is intended for evaluation and feedback only. They don’t feel that Jitsu today is suitable for use in a large-scale project. In the near future, they will release a Beta version of Jitsu that will be much more suitable as a building base.

Requirements: Any Modern Browsers
