Summer is here. While laying on the beach, you can use the time to learn new programming language or get some overview on the framework of your interest. I bought myself Kindle, my beach holiday is just a day away, so it’s time to fill the reader with content.
In this article we are going to look at using IF statements in Sass.
HTML's a mess, I think. A SAX form handing off to a YACC form that can be escaped within the former. CSS has turned out to be a whole PhD subject on its own. What if we could start over? What would that look like?
Fixed menus are a definitive web design trend of 2014. They look good, and they are also super useful for visitors. Today, I’m showing you how you can create a lightweight, functional and beautiful fixed menu for your website or WordPress blog.
When working with curl, it can give lots of excellent and detailed information, but sometimes it is too much! Today I'm fiddling with the caching headers on a client's application, so I'm only interested in seeing the headers and not the body of the response.
In this video I'll show you how to quickly determine where the source code bound to a function in the UI is so you can set a breakpoint to step into the code directly.
At first I was rather skeptical about this book, I was always interested CG rendering and 3D design and this book seemed like a good direction to take. I really enjoyed the hands on approach, make sure you download the code documents in order to follow along.
One of my favourite features of SASS is the ability to use loops to dynamically create your CSS classes. A good example of this is when you want to make a set of classes to use for changing the text colours and background colours of elements you would normally have to write CSS like this.
You know how to register a custom taxonomy and how to register terms for that taxonomy. However what do you do if you want to de-register a taxonomy?
It would be interesting to see a classical approach to teaching programming. The goal would be to write code that is testable, maintainable, and even occasionally eloquent.
Look at a scenario where you are using a Search service to get a collection of objects that contain the search string. You can specify the route which will display the search results.
Since what I wanted to do was merely style-related, I thought of only using CSS for it. After all, how hard could it be!? RIGHT!?
To separate logic of accessing data from the routes, we create separate modules to handle the task of data access. When I started learning Node.js, a common pattern that I saw in some samples to separate the data access logic from routing was as follows:
Using returns and callbacks in the same function. Sounds like crazy talk I know, but hear me out, I have good reason. I think.
Protractor is an emerging E2E (end to end) testing framework in the AngularJS world. This article shows you how to run your very first test in Protractor.
Every week here and in our newsletter, we feature a new developer/blogger from the DZone community to catch up and find out what he or she is working on now and what's coming next. This week we're talking to Mike Driscoll, Python programmer, author, and founder of the Python user group in Iowa.
Sometimes the day of a developer gets awfully complicated. One of my less favorite moments are those when you have used a library for most of your project and then you realize you need things from it it was not designed to do.
While writing my Spring-Hibernate Integration post I realize that we (as java developers) have so many frameworks available which can make life easy by rapidly developing so many common things using frameworks. ExtJS is the most advanced among those client side UI frameworks.
There's a key on my keyboard that I have spent most of my typing career learning not to press. Right next to A and right above Shift, it seems impossible to avoid. It MAKES ME SOUND ANGRY when I'm not.
Three months ago I changed jobs, and in the process switched from Java to Python. Here are the differences that have stood out for me since making the switch. I am not a Java-programmer, or a Python-programmer. I am a programmer, period. There are differences, but Python and Java have more in common than what sets them apart.
Every once in a while, you have to put in a heroic effort to diagnose a bug. When you finally figure it out, you want to run around the office singing “We are the champions”, even if it turns out to be a trivial issue. Because that doesn’t mean it took a trivial amount of effort.
Some months ago the first version of open source HTML5 NextCharts was released. You can read this article here. In the second release of the NextCharts project, it was time to add some simple widgets like alarm, indicator and display.
