Creative Christmas Gift For Geek Lovers – Web & Mobile App

Posted in News, Web Design2 years ago • Written by

Oh, Christmas. The magic time when you spend all the money you’ve been saving the whole year. Oh, and we have all that Christmas Spirit, of course.

Now, you probably want to spend a lot on your soul mate’s gift, to show her how deep is your love.

Yeah, money can buy cool things, but guess what: almost every year I make my own gifts for my girlfriend (but I always have to buy something else anyway). And I feel that she just loves when I do something by myself instead of just buying it (unless shoes, she wouldn’t like if I made her a shoe). So I’ll show you, dear Padawan, how to make a cool one-page-gift for anybody that you like.

Our goal here is to do a simple “slider”, where a lot of messages and pictures that you like are shown. In the meantime you’ll learn a little bit about design, jQuery and CSS3.

So, let’s rock!

Improve Website Usability Using jQuery, HTML5, And CSS3

Posted in Tools, Usability, Web Design2 years ago • Written by 9 Comments

Remember back when if you wanted to add interactivity to your site to improve the UX aspect to make it more appealing to visitors, you had to immediately go to a flash outlet? Well that sure does seem like a long time ago now, surprisingly so because it was just a few short years ago. The decline of Flash use for these instances can be credited to advances in web technologies such as HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery. These advancements have made the use of Flash in most cases an outdated and inefficient method of tackling interactivity in a website. That is why in this article, we’re going to take a look at HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery tutorials, techniques, and resources that can replace aspects of a website where the use of Flash was the dominant and most practical option.

jQuery Plugin Development: Hover to Reveal Masked Password

Posted in Coding, HTML & CSS, JS & AJAX3 years ago • Written by 17 Comments

We talked about how to improve your HTML forms performance a couple of days ago. There we covered a pretty controversial topic “Don’t mask your passwords”, discussing how bad masking your passwords could be for usability.

At this moment, we basically have two options: mask password field and don’t ask for any feedback, or show password field as text and potentially decrease security.

This is why I think a hover revealing password could be a really good alternative: You can increase your security, and if you are unsure about what you’ve typed just go and hover over it.

So, what we will be doing today is a jQuery plugin to do that, and additionally, we will have a behavior pretty similar to what many mobiles does, where we can see the last character for a couple of seconds. This is a good chance to learn more about plugins, dynamically generated content, and some good coding practices.

Moreover with this technique we could apply different effects and a lot of variations since all this things are based on non-obtrusive and almost only decorative javascript.

So, let’s rock!

jQuery Plugin: Table of Contents with Smooth Scrolling

Posted in Coding, JS & AJAX3 years ago • Written by 39 Comments

Hey guys, have you noticed that pretty box on WordPress codex that gives us a preview about what we can see on a page? So, I haven’t seen too many blogs use this kind of feature and it is really useful for our readers, since they can just skip to the content that they are interested in and avoid wasting time. Wikipedia has a table of contents that makes it easier for readers to skip around, right?

I’m not the very first to do something like this with jQuery. But our goal in here is to develop a complete jQuery plugin, from start to finish, with options, and that is easy to customize. And, of course, something that I hope is useful to you
