Brunch – An Assembler for HTML5 Applications

Posted · Category: Framework, License Free

Brunch is an assembler for HTML5 applications. It is a lightweight approach to building HTML5 applications with emphasis on elegance and simplicity. It’s agnostic to frameworks, libraries, programming, stylesheet & templating languages and backend technology.

To simplify app development, brunch watches your files for changes and automatically wraps your scripts and templates in require.js modules. All build errors are printed to console. If you have growl / libnotify, brunch will use them too.

There are some people who are using brunch already. Ranging from internal tooling to high traffic facebook apps. Feel free to check out the examples they mentioned on the website.

Automatically Adds Filler Content to HTML Documents

Posted · Category: License Free, Tools

Fixie.js is an open source tool that automatically adds filler content to HTML documents. When designing and developing websites, it’s often useful to add lorem ipsum text to see what your page will look like without worrying about your final content. Unfortunately, adding lots of filler content involves lots of copy-pasting and manual editing, and also makes your HTML unwieldy.

Fixie.js makes filler content succinct, making it faster and easier to test out your designs. By interpreting your semantic HTML5 tags, Fixie will automagically add the right type of content in the right places. Headings, paragraphs, links, images, sections.

WebAppers Redesign Updates #1

Posted · Category: Announcement

First of all, thank you very much for all of your opinions and suggestions about the redesign. You guys have pointed out some of the most important things I missed when designing. Most of them are very useful and helped me improved the new design dramatically.


Sticky Navigation Menu No Longer Sticky

I have now set the navigation menu on the left hand side to be fixed position. A little Up Arrow button will be appeared when you scroll, so that you can quickly go to the top of the page if needed.

#05-12-2012 Update
The Navigation Menu is now sticky again, but used simple CSS: Fixed Postion instead. So it still follows your scroll but in a smooth way.

Content Area is Bigger than Ever

The content area is bigger for larger screens now. I have set the font size bigger, so it makes the content area more stand out. I have also made the sidebar background a bit darker, so that it won’t distract you from reading the content.

Better Contrast

The color of headings and titles are changed. It makes better contrast for them with the text of the content. And it’s more comfortable reading the text now. The links are now more obvious and visible too.

CSS Image Sprites

This should be the biggest mistake I have made. Preloading images for mouseover images on navigation menu did not work very well apparently. I have used CSS Image Sprites for mouseover images for navigation menu and most popular section now.

Still Responsive

It’s still a responsive design. You can always test it out in browser with different resolutions: 1280px, 1024px, 800px, 600px and 320px.

There are other bits and pieces I have made changes. Added the small indication for sub menus and etc.

The New Design of WebAppers has just released! After days and nights of hard work, you can eventually check out the re-design of WebAppers.


Responsive Design

It’s a responsive design, which is crafted to use W3C CSS3 media queries, to adapt the layout to different viewing environments. So that users across a broad range of devices and browsers will have access to WebAppers, laid out so as to be easy to read and navigate with a minimum of resizing, panning and scrolling. Take a look at the following examples of viewing WebAppers in browser with different resolutions: 1280px, 1024px, 800px, 600px and 320px.






Most Popular Section & Sticky Navigation Menu

I have added Popular posts section, so that you can get an idea of some of the most popular posts in the last 30 days or all time. It’s best for users have not got enough time reading every new posts daily. You will also notice the sticky navigation menu on the left hand side, it will follow you when you scroll. So that you can quickly browse other topics if needed.

Updated Books Section

I have also updated the recommended books section too. You are able to check out some of the useful books for web designers and web developers. Please feel free to suggest some of other great books I have not mentioned too. It will make our life better.

Still working on……

I am still working on refining the Tags on the right hand side. I am trying to split some big tags into smaller ones, so that you can find what you want easier. It takes some time for thousand of posts…

You may find some bugs here and there. Please feel free to let me know what you think about the new design. I am open to any suggestions. Thanks!

A Scalable Real-time Backend for Your Web Application

Posted · Category: Framework, License Free

Firebase is a cloud service that automatically synchronizes data between clients and with our cloud servers. It frees developers from worrying about how their data will be communicated and stored, and allows them to focus on their own application logic. Apps built with Firebase can be written entirely with client-side JavaScript, update in real-time out-of-the-box, are inherently scalable, and interoperate well with existing services.

Firebase is designed so developers can build great apps quickly, and it is intended for both expert developers as well as those just getting started. Firebase’s synchronization approach can provide all of the data storage and transmission needs of many apps. This does not mean, however, that developers can’t run their own servers.

Firebase plays nicely with any existing system through its REST API or its Node.js library, allowing developers of existing apps to add scalable real-time functionality with just a few lines of code.

A JavaScript Data Transformation & Management Library

Posted · Category: Framework, GPL License, MIT License

Miso is an open source toolkit designed to expedite the creation of high-quality interactive storytelling and data visualisation content. The first release under the Miso Project is Miso Dataset, a JavaScript client-side data management and transformation library.

It makes managing client-side data easy by handling loading, parsing, sorting, querying & manipulating data from all sorts of sources. Unlike client-side frameworks that focus on entity modelling, Dataset is designed exclusively for working with matrices/tables of data. This allows a rich set of number crunching capabilities and helps optimise the handling of large numbers of rows.
