Koa – Expressive Middleware for Node.js

Posted · Category: Framework, MIT License

Koa is a new web framework designed by the team behind Express, which aims to be a smaller, more expressive, and more robust foundation for web applications and APIs. Through leveraging generators Koa allows you to ditch callbacks and greatly increase error-handling.

Koa does not bundle any middleware within core, and provides an elegant suite of methods that make writing servers fast and enjoyable. Koa’s middleware flow in a stack-like manner allowing you to perform actions downstream, then filter and manipulate the response upstream. Koa’s use of generators also greatly increases the readability and robustness of your application.

Effeckt.css: UI-less, Fast Transitions & Animations

Posted · Category: Framework, MIT License

Designing and developing UIs for the mobile web is tricky, but it’s extremely difficult to do that while delivering something that performs at 60fps. The best opportunities to getting jank-free transitions on phones/tablets are CSS transition and keyframe animation based, especially tapping into hardware-accelerated transforms and opacity changes.

Effeckt.css is a collection of  fantastic experiments and demos exploring CSS-based transitions. It provides very little UI of its own. It’s only hooks for transitions / animations. There is no hover on the mobile web, so any hover-based effects would be excluded or have a tap equivalent.
