Building Beautiful Books and Exercises with GitBook

Posted · Category: Information

GitBook is a command line tool (and Node.js library) for building beautiful programming books and exercises using GitHub/Git and Markdown. A book can contain interactive exercises. An exercise is a code challenge provided to the reader, which is given a code editor to write a solution which is checked against the book author’s validation code.

GitBook supports building books written in multiple languages. Each language should be a sub-directory following the normal GitBook format, and a file named LANGS.md should be present at the root of the repository.

Advanced Visual Animations with CSS Keyframes

Posted · Category: Information, License Free

Designmodo is has shared with us an article: Playing with CSS3 Animations, which is a personal experience he had while trying to build advanced visual animations with CSS keyframes. We will create a simple fluid menu based on four squares. Clicking on one of them will display an overlay showing related content, closing the overlay will reverse the process showing the default menu. All delays will be managed directly with CSS — no javascript timeout().

All demos have been tested on Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera, IE11 and IE10 (also on iOS). They are not intended for production; they are simply provided as tangible case studies. Additionally, you may have to implement some fallbacks for users (especially those using old IE browsers), something beyond the scope of this article.

Learn Flexbox in 5 Minutes with Interactive Tour

Posted · Category: Information

The Flexbox Layout module currently a W3C Candidate Recommandation aims at providing a more efficient way to lay out, align and distribute space among items in a container, even when their size is unknown and/or dynamic.

The main idea behind the flex layout is to give the container the ability to alter its items’ width/height to best fill the available space. They work well for pages, they lack flexibility to support large or complex applications especially when it comes to orientation changing, resizing, stretching, shrinking, etc.

Flexbox in 5 minutes is an interactive tour of all the major features of the new CSS property: flexbox. It’s built using Knockout.js.

Examples of Item Transitions with CSS Animations

Posted · Category: Information, License Free

Codrops has shared some inspiration for item transitions with us. There are three different use cases: a small image slideshow, a large header slideshow and a slideshow using product images with a transparent background.

State transitions are done using CSS Animations. This allows us to specify a certain behavior for the items when coming from any direction. This can be useful for direction-aware navigation of items, like you can see in the demos.

Please note that in some examples we are using CSS Animations on pseudo-elements which might not be supported in some browsers (especially mobile browsers).
