How to Create a Reading Position Indicator with HTML5

Posted · Category: License Free, Tools

There are some websites that have some kind of an indicator to display the current reading position (how much you have “read”, depending on how far you have scrolled down an article). Generally, such indicators are used on blog posts or long form articles and help readers understand how far they are from finishing the article.

CSS-Tricks has shared an article: Reading Position Indicator, uses a horizontal progress bar as the indicator. But instead of using traditional div/span(s) and some non-linear math to build the indicator, we will use the HTML5 progress element. It is much more semantically accurate and suitable to represent this information, and that too with no complex calculations involved.

Seen.js Renders 3D Scenes into SVG or HTML5 Canvas

Posted · Category: Tools

Seen.js renders 3D scenes into SVG or HTML5 Canvas. Seen.js contains a simple abstraction on top of the graphics capabilities of SVG and HTML5 Canvas elements. All of the other components of this library are agnostic to the type of context it will be rendered in.

Seen.js contains a looping, event-firing class for animating scenes. The render context contains a method .animate() which will create and return an animator that is set up to invoke the context’s .render() method. To modify the scene on every frame, listen to the ‘beforeRender’ event.

Seen.js includes adapters for mouse rotation and mousewheel zooming. For best results, use a quaternion to create a rotation matrix from the x,y movement of the mouse. The zoom adapter directly returns a scale factor that can be applied to your scene’s model.

Picturefill – A Smart Responsive Images Approach

Posted · Category: GPL License, MIT License, Tools

Picturefill is a Responsive Images approach that you can use today that mimics the proposed picture element using spans, for safety sake. Picturefill natively supports HD(Retina) image replacement. While numerous other solutions exist, picturefill has the added benefit of performance for the user in only being served one image.

Picturefill works best in browsers that support CSS3 media queries. Internet Explorer 8 and older have no support for CSS3 Media Queries, so in the examples above, IE will receive the first data-src image reference. Picturefill supports a broad range of browsers and devices, provided that you stick with the markup conventions provided.
