Clipboard.js – A Modern Approach to Copy Text to Clipboard

Posted · Category: MIT License, Tools

Copying text to the clipboard shouldn’t be hard. It shouldn’t require dozens of steps to configure or hundreds of KBs to load. But most of all, it shouldn’t depend on Flash or any bloated framework. That’s why clipboard.js exists. This library relies on both Selection and execCommand APIs. The second one is supported in the following browsers: Chrome 42+, Firefox 41+, IE 9+, Opera 29+, Safari X.

CSS Nano – A Modular Minifier Based on PostCSS

Posted · Category: Framework, MIT License

CSSNano is a modular minifier that aims to utilise small modules from the PostCSS ecosystem, rather than being an all-encompassing module that may be difficult to contribute to. Because it is written on top of PostCSS, it is able to do more than simple whitespace transforms – including advanced optimisations such as custom identifier reduction, z-index rebasing, and adjacent selector merging.

Best Prototyping Tools and Practices Makes Good Sense

Posted · Category: Best Collections

Prototyping encourages peer reviews, feedback, and validation activities, all of which contribute to the quality in a final product. There are a number of excellent prototyping tools on the market. Five of the best ones are described here.

Using any one of these tools will yield superior results, but users are also encouraged to follow the best prototyping practices.

Doing so should result in even higher quality in the end products, while enabling them to be designed and developed in less time and at less cost than is normally the case when only the more traditional design practices are employed.

Best Practices that are Important to Observe


The tools discussed here will handle the bulk of your prototyping activities, but to gain all of prototyping’s benefits, it is important to adhere to best practices, including these three:

  • Use and Test Animations – Animations, when used judiciously, can greatly enrich an application’s user experience. It only makes sense to introduce and test animations during prototyping, even if they need to be presented in greatly simplified formats. The tools discussed below support animation.
  • Collaborate – One of the primary reasons for prototyping – another being testing – is the ease in which this design approach allows collaboration, whether it is among team members, or between designer and client. Collaboration is especially powerful during the early stages of designing a mockup since a lo-fidelity mockup encourages honest feedback, whereas the focus tends to be more on specific details with hi-fidelity prototypes. Collaboration, accompanied by strong version control, is a valuable design asset.
  • Test Early and Often – As a rule of thumb, the earlier you test your mockup the less likely you are to carry faulty design all the way into the final product. Early testing makes design errors, omissions, or imperfections much easier to remedy. While there is often a tendency to save user testing until last, usability testing should be undertaken as early as possible, whether the subjects involved are real users, clients, or team members. Make “test early and often” your mantra.

ESLint – The Pluggable Linting Utility for JavaScript and JSX

Posted · Category: Code, Tools

ESLint is an open source JavaScript linting utility originally created by Nicholas C. Zakas in June 2013. Code linting is a type of static analysis that is frequently used to find problematic patterns or code that doesn’t adhere to certain style guidelines. There are code linters for most programming languages, and compilers sometimes incorporate linting into the compilation process.

The primary reason ESLint was created was to allow developers to create their own linting rules. ESLint is designed to have all rules completely pluggable. The default rules are written just like any plugin rules would be. They can all follow the same pattern, both for the rules themselves as well as tests. While ESLint will ship with some built-in rules to make it useful from the start, you’ll be able to dynamically load rules at any point in time. ESLint is written using Node.js to provide a fast runtime environment and easy installation via npm.
