Auto Detecting Credit Card Type with JavaScript

Posted · Category: Forms, License Free

Everyone knows that credit cards were actually quite well-suited to the web, and so the credit card form was born. There are several sites who have done away with the credit card type field. Both Amazon and GitHub don’t require you to select a credit card type in their form. As you fill in the credit card number, the user interface changes to show the type of credit card being used.

Auto-detecting Credit Card Type is a nice addition to the standard payment form because it frees up the user from entering what is actually redundant information. It’s trivial to determine the type of credit card being used once you understand how credit card numbers work.

Audio.js Emulate HTML5’s <audio> Tag for All Browsers

Posted · Category: MIT License, Sound

Audio.js is a drop-in javascript library that allows HTML5’s <audio> tag to be used anywhere. It uses native <audio> where available and an invisible flash player to emulate <audio> for other browsers. It provides a consistent html player UI to all browsers which can be styled used standard css.

Audio.js focuses on playing mp3s. It doesn’t currently support the ogg format. As mp3 is the current defacto music transfer format, ogg support is lower on our list of priorities. It has been tested on Mobile Safari (iOS 3+), Android (2.2+, w/Flash), Safari (4+), Chrome (7+), Firefox (3+, w/ Flash), Opera (10+, w/ Flash), IE (6, 7, 8, w/ Flash).

Backbone, Spine, Ember.js (SproutCore 2.0), JavaScriptMVC… The list of new and stable solutions goes on and on, but just how do you decide on which to use in a sea of so many options?

To help solve this problem, TodoMVC was created – a project which offers the same Todo application implemented using MVC concepts in most of the popular JavaScript MV* frameworks of today.
