HTML Email and Accessibility

2017-11-23T03:01:35+00:00

You love HTML emails, don't you? As a developer, probably not... but subscribers absolutely do. They devour them, consume them on every device known to man, and drive a hell of a lot of revenue for companies that take their email marketing seriously. But most web developers tasked with building HTML emails merely want to [...]

Styleable

2017-11-22T03:02:24+00:00

The Wix dev team throws their hat into the CSS preprocessor ring: Stylable is a CSS preprocessor that enables you to write reusable, highly-performant, styled components. Each component exposes a style API that maps its internal parts so you can reuse components across teams without sacrificing stylability. Scopes styles to components so they don’t “leak” [...]

Advocating for Accessible UI Design

2017-11-22T03:02:21+00:00

Accessibility is a hot topic these days, and the older we web-makers get, the hotter it's going to become! That might be a snarky outlook, but what I'm trying to say is that it's about time we start designing the web for everyone because the web was meant to be for everyone, and less and [...]

Happier HTML5 Form Validation

2017-11-21T03:02:31+00:00

HTML has given us loads of form validation stuff in the last few years. Dave Rupert puts a point on the UX problems with it: If you’ve ever experimented with HTML5 Form Validation, you’ve probably been disappointed. The out-of-box experience isn’t quite what you want. Adding the required attribute to inputs works wonderfully. However the [...]

Airplanes and Ashtrays

2017-11-21T03:02:29+00:00

Harry Roberts wrote about design systems and how compromise has to be baked into them from the very start. He argues that we can’t be dictatorial about what is and isn’t permitted because design, whether that’s the design of a product, service or system, is always about compromise. Harry writes: Whenever you plan or design a [...]

Live Share / Teletype

2017-11-21T03:02:27+00:00

Amanda Silver introduces "Visual Studio Live Share", which: enables developers using Visual Studio 2017 or Visual Studio Code to collaborate in real-time! This goes a bit deeper than just a multiple-cursors thing. Both people get all the same fancy VS code UI stuff like IntelliSense and Peek. GitHub's Atom editor also has Teletype, which: lets [...]

Recreating the Apple Watch Breathe App Animation

2017-11-21T03:02:19+00:00

The Apple Watch comes with a stock app called Breathe that reminds you to, um, breathe. There's actually more to it than that, but the thought of needing a reminder to breathe makes me giggle. The point is, the app has this kinda awesome interface with a nice animation. Photo courtesy of Apple SupportI thought [...]
