How to Write Maintainable CSS

Posted · Category: Information

MaintainableCSS is an approach to architecting and writing CSS that helps you and your team write modular, scalable and maintainable code. In practical terms, this means that as a developer I want to create new features, or edit existing features without having to concern myself with overriding styles I don’t want applied, or worse that the code I write causes regression elsewhere.

MaintainableCSS is not something you can download. It’s a set of principles, guides and conventions that help you write CSS for large or small scale websites. Having maintainable code means that I can edit a module and it’s styles without worrying that I have negatively caused problems in other modules by accident. I want to be able to to write code that provides peace of mind knowing that my code is encapsulated. Write CSS without worrying that overzealous, pre-existing styles will cause problems. MaintainableCSS is an approach to writing modular, scalable and of course, maintainable CSS.

Chartd – Responsive and Retina-Compatible Charts

Posted · Category: Charts, License Free

At StatHat, they make a lot of charts. They creates dynamic, autoupdating charts using JavaScript, but we also send charts via email and to external services like Campfire and Slack. Plus, they let users embed charts on their own web pages. For these situations, JavaScript charts either won’t work, are overkill, or could get messy.

So they made chartd. It allows you to create a chart with just an img tag. These charts:

  • are responsive (resize this page to see the charts respond)
  • are retina-friendly
  • can contain up to 5 datasets
  • can be line or step charts
  • have customizable colors and strokes

No JavaScript is required. You can generate SVG or PNG charts. We prefer SVG, but some services (like gmail) won’t render SVGs in emails.

An Interactive 3D Mall Map Concept

Posted · Category: License Free, Maps

Today Codrops has shared an Interactive 3D Mall Map experiment with us. The idea is to show a mall map with all its floors in perspective. Additionally, we have a search in a sidebar that allows to filter mall spaces. Once a floor is selected, we show some pins as indicators for the different stores/spaces.

When clicking on a pin, we show some more details of that space. We’ve mostly used CSS trickery for this, applying transitions that will rotate and move the levels by adding or removing classes. The levels are represented by inline SVGs. This concept can be applied to any kind of floor map actually; any building that has several floors and spaces could be an interesting use case for this.

Pagekit features a user friendly admin interface, static pages, a blog and beautiful themes and extensions, which can be installed directly from the included Marketplace.

What looks good on the interface level, should also extend to a strong foundation. Extensibility is one of the core ideas of Pagekit. On the code level, pretty much everything is a Module object: a theme, an extension, a widget and the core functionality itself. This keeps code complexity to a minimum, as developers can work with the same concept in many different places.

Pagekit is extended through themes and extensions and manages them using the power of Composer. Install packages right from the browser, using the command line or by requiring them in your project definition. No need to distribute the package dependencies with your extensions. Pagekit will get and share the required libraries during the package’s installation.

Pagekit is an Open Source project and is published under MIT license. It’s hosted on GitHub and open for everyone to contribute.  Read the rest of this entry »

SmoothState.js – Transitions without Hard Cuts and White Flashes

Posted · Category: MIT License, Tools

We’ve accepted the jankiness of page loads as a quirk of the web even though there is no technical reason for it. SmoothState.js lets you add transitions to eliminate the hard cuts and white flashes of page loads that deface the beauty of the user experience.

Javascript SPA frameworks, sometimes referred to as MVC frameworks, are a common way to solve this issue. However, these frameworks often lose the benefits of unobtrusive code, such as resilience to errors, performance, and accessibility. smoothState.js lets you start adding transitions that eliminate the hard cuts of page loads to improve the beauty of the experience. It does this with:

Progressive enhancement – a technique that exemplifies the principles universal design

  • jQuery – a library a great many of us are familiar with
  • history.pushState() – a method that lets us maintain browsing expectations
  • Ajax – a way for us to request and store pages on the user’s device without refreshing the page

SmoothState.js will unobtrusively enhance your website’s page loads to behave more like a single-page application framework. This allows you to add page transitions and create a nicer experince for your users.

Material Kit – Free Bootstrap UI Kit for Google Material Design

Posted · Category: License Free, Tools

Material Kit is a Free Bootstrap UI Kit with a fresh, new design inspired by Google’s material design. You asked for it, so we built it. It’s a great pleasure to introduce to you the material concepts in an easy to use and beautiful set of components. Along with the restyling of the Bootstrap elements, you will find three fully-coded example pages, to help you design your next project.

Material Kit makes use of light, surface and movement. It uses a deliberate color choice, edge-to-edge imagery and large scale typography. The general layout resembles sheets of paper following multiple different layers, so that the depth and order is obvious. The navigation stays mainly on the left and the actions on the right.

Material Kit is based on the Github Repo from Fez who did an amazing job creating the backbone for the material effects, animations and transitions. Big thanks to his team for their forward thinking efforts.
