Smoothie Charts – Charting Library For Live Streaming Data

Posted · Category: Charts, MIT License

Smoothie Charts is a really small charting library designed for live streaming data. Joe Walnes wanted to show real time streaming data pushed over a WebSocket. Although many of the charting libraries allow you to dynamically update data, none have really been optimized for a constant stream of data.

Smoothie Charts only works on Chrome and Safari. And it doesn’t support legends. Or pie-charts. In fact, it’s inferior in virtually every way to a library like Flot. But, it’s very good at displaying streaming data.

How Well Does Your Browser Support HTML5?

Posted · Category: License Free, Tools

The HTML5 test score is an indication of how well your browser supports the upcoming HTML5 standard and related specifications. Despite these shortcomings they hope that by quantifying the level of support users and web developers will get an idea of how hard the browser manufacturers work on improving their browsers and the web as a development platform.

The HTML5 test score is calculated by testing for the many new features of HTML5. Each feature is worth one or more points. Apart from the main HTML5 specification and other specifications created the W3C HTML Working Group, this test also awards points for supporting related drafts and specifications.

Some of these specifications were initially part of HTML5, but are now further developed by other W3C working groups. WebGL is also part of this test despite not being developed by the W3C, because it extends the HTML5 canvas element with a 3d context.

How to Create BonBon Buttons with CSS3

Posted · Category: Buttons, License Free

BonBon Buttons are sweet CSS3 buttons that are sexy looking, really flexible, but with the most minimalistic markup as possible. There are 3 different materials. A “mate”, “glossy” and a “glass” version. The difference of the later two is that the glass version adds a dark blurry text-shadow which makes it look like you can see trough the button to its bottom.

However, BonBon Buttons are not meant to be used on your next project that targets the average internet user. He just wanted to show a couple techniques how to use some of the new CSS3/HTML5 features. So only the current version of Safari, Chrome and Firefox are supported.

Jasmine – A JavaScript Testing Framework

Posted · Category: Framework, MIT License

There are some great JavaScript testing frameworks out there. Many only work from within a browser. Most don’t support testing asynchronous code like event callbacks. Some have syntax that’s hard for JS developers or IDEs to understand.

Jasmine is a JavaScript testing framework. It’s heavily influenced by, and borrows the best parts of, ScrewUnit, JSSpec, JSpec, and of course RSpec. Jasmine is not tied to any browser, framework, platform, or host language. It work anywhere JavaScript can run, including browsers, servers, phones, etc.

When you publish something online, there are not that many ways to determine whether people like what you have to say. Comments, the cornerstone of blogging, are too demanding, and users often prefer not to post one.

How to Add Finger-Swipe Support to Webpages

Posted · Category: Framework, License Free

One of the more interesting and fun aspects of iPad usage is the ability to effect change in a webpage by swiping a finger across the screen of the iPad. For example, swiping to the left to navigate to the next page in a series of pages, or swiping to display the next image in a series of images. For iPad users, these actions are intuitive and natural.

However, for those who compose webpages, adding touch detection to a page can be a challenging and difficult process. No more. The information presented on Padilicious: Add Finger-Swipe Support to Webpages, will make it easy to add touch sensing to your pages, requiring only a minimum of JavaScript coding on your part.

Useful Hover-based User Interface with jQuery, CSS3, HTML5

Posted · Category: License Free, Menu

AddyOsmani is going to teach us how to create a useful hover-based user interface using jQuery, CSS3, HTML5 and @font-face. Why a hover-based interface? With the popularity of touch-based web applications simplifying the way that people can use sites on mobile devices, there’s room for us to look into ways of making it even easier for people to use sites in desktop-based browsers too.

WanderWall achieves that and what it could easily be used for a portfolio or business site but the concepts we’ll learn could certainly be used to expand the idea further.
