Bootstrap 4 news
Bootstrap is a giant framework with almost everything you could need for building a site or web app interface. Bootstrap is changing, version four is in alpha release. Naturally, we’re just as curious to know what’s different, so I dived into the documentation to find out. Keep in mind, though, that this is an alpha release. It cannot be considered feature-complete. It could radically change. From Less to Sass This is obviously the biggest and most important change. Heck, you’ve probably already heard of it. People have gone so far as to procliam the “death of Less” due to this switchover. Well, I don’t know if anything’s gone and died because the Bootstrap team decided to do things differently. It is, however, a monumental undertaking, and it will drastically change how people use and customize the framework. Sass is just generally more developer-friendly, with wider support, a bigger community, and yes, more features. It can do some things that, right now, Less just can’t. I say this with sadness. I’ve never made any secret of my love for Less; but it seems that the community at large has spoken, and declared that Sass is just, well, better. New features   Figures   Figures are for showcasing single media objects (usually images), with an optional caption. Support for Bootstrap’s various helper classes is factored in, so you can align and style the image (and its caption) however you like. Images placed in a figure element, given the right classes, become responsive automatically. Flexbox Now, due to lack of support, Flexbox has not replaced the regular grid system. However, it is available to anyone who wants it. Change a variable, recompile the Sass, and boom! You now have a new, modern layout system. Cards Okay, we’ve been seeing the proliferation of card-based design for some time now. Bootstrap now has a specific component for them, with myriad layout options. You can group them up, keep them separate, add headers, footers, buttons, images, and overlay text on those images. Wells, thumbnails, and panels all get replaced by the new card component, so in that way, Bootstrap is a bit more streamlined. Reboot: new customization variables Bootstrap has historically been a bit of a pain to customize, aesthetically speaking: There were a lot of styles to over-write, and individual variables to customize if you wanted to make your Bootstrap-based site look like anything other than a Bootstrap-based site. Heck, remember all of those customization apps made just for changing Boostrap’s look? Well the developers have heard your prayers and Github issues. Change all of the transition animations at once, disable rounded corners, change all the colors, or anything else you like with one big bunch of Sass variables. It’s all there in the Reboot module, and it’s about time. We can expect some more original-looking designs now, with any luck. Rem and em units That’s right, we’re moving away from pixels, to these relational units of measurement. This ties into the whole customization thing, too. Want a tighter design with thinner margins? Change the main text size, maybe a couple of variables, and boom. Everything looks “thinner”. Stuff that’s basically the same As you might expect, everything got re-written and upgraded (because of the Sass move). But still, the basic usage for most of these components will be the same. Do double-check the documentation, though. Certain things will have changed. Take the grid, for example: they added an “extra-large” tier to the grid system, presumably for those ridiculously huge retina screens that we’re seeing these days. · Alerts · Breadcrumb · Button dropdown · Button group · Buttons · Card · Carousel · Code · Collapse · Dropdowns · Forms · Images · Input group · Jumbotron · Label · List group · Modal · Navbar · Navs · Pagination · Popovers · Progress · Reboot · Scrollspy · Tables · The Grid · Tooltips · Typography Other updates   No more IE8 support   It’s about time. There’s not a whole lot more to say about that. Not much will change for most of us. Anybody who really, really needs to support legacy browsers will have to use an older version of Bootstrap. All JavaScript plugins have been re-written The proliferation of ES6 means that a lot of people are re-writing their JavaScript. This means performance improvements for all, the exodus of older browsers, and programmers having fun with new toys. It’s a win-win. Overall impressions Where Foundation is going “smaller” and more streamlined with specialized frameworks, Bootstrap seems to want it all. They have done a lot of work to improve performance, and streamline what they could, but Bootstrap still aims to do just about everything you can think of. Mind you, anyone can configure their version of the framework however they like by dropping unnecessary modules, or adding new ones. It’s not a big deal. Still, there’s definitely a one-size-fits-all mindset in play. And that can be a good thing. There are large, wide-scope projects out there that need the room to expand. In any case, Bootstrap will continue to satisfy its users’ needs. It’s going to be mostly the same, but better. Source: http://www.developerdrive.com ... Read more

Add Google Fonts to your Drupal 8 Theme
Adding Google Fonts to your Drupal 8 theme can be a bit more difficult than with Drupal 7. This is an example of how to install a font for every page of your website. Here is the method previously used to install Google Fonts on every page of the theme using Drupal 7: function MYTHEME_preprocess_html(&$variables) { // this function is deprecated in D8 drupal_add_css('//fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto+Condensed', array('group' => CSS_THEME)); }   But in Drupal 8 it’s completely different – we need to use the libraries method, which is a bit more complicated. First things first, we need to add a library in the last two lines of the theme.info.yml file. Remember that when adding the theme name you need to use all lower case for it to work properly. name: Test description: Test theme type: theme base theme: theme name core: 8.x libraries: - test/fonts   After that, a library file needs to be created – the library is defined as themeName/libraryName in the .info.yml. file. The library file is named themeName.libraries.yml. This file opens with a declaration of libraryName: fonts: license: name: SIL Open Font License, 1.1 url: https://goo.gl/UpQhAK /> css: theme: //fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Roboto+Condensed: { type: external } css/myStyles.css: {}   The YML file will work even without a license section but it’s a good idea to mention it as well. The font’s URL has the HTTP: removed so that it’s agnostic to secure-or-not connections at runtime. If everything is done properly you should be able to view the adjusted lines of code. All you need to do now is implement the font into your CSS through a rule in the myStyles.css file located in your css folder.   ... Read more

Are Your Using These 20 Useful Git Commands? You Should!
Git is one of the most popular version control systems in the world. Since its release more than 11 years ago it became a must have for web development specialists and web development agencies alike. Here is a list of very handy Git commands which you can use for app development or web development:   Setting details git config --global user.name "John Doe" git config --global user.email john@example.com Use --global to set the configuration for all projects. If git config is used without --global and run inside a project directory, the settings are set for the specific project.   Ignoring file modes cd project/ git config core.filemode false This option is useful if the file permissions are not important to us, for example when we are on Windows.   See current settings git config –list   Clone a remote repository git clone https://github.com/username/somerepo.git This creates a new directory with the name of the repository.   Get help for a specific command git help clone   Create and Checkout a New Branch git checkout -b   Checkout a Remote Branch git checkout -b origin/   See differences between two commits git diff COMMIT1_ID COMMIT2_ID   See recent commit history git log   Abort Changes git checkout --   Modify the Previous Commit's Message git commit --amend   Partial Change Checkin git add --edit   Undo the Previous Commit git revert HEAD^   Temporarily Stash Changes, Restore Later # After changes have been made... git stash # Do some other things here #Re-apply the changes git stash pop   Delete a Remote Branch git push origin :   Pull in the Latest from a Shared Repository # Add a remote branch git remote add # Get changes from that branch git fetch   Pushing, deleting and tagging tags # Create a Tag git tag # Delete the tag git tag -d # Push Tags git push --tags   Making changes and creating patches git diff > some_patch_1.patch   Adding files and creating patches git add newfile git diff --staged > some_patch.patch   Applying patch patches git apply -v some_patch_2.patch     ...

How to Build a Better Website: 8 Best Practices
Here is a list of 8 tips on building a better website in 2016: Keep your design fresh and simple The homepage is the most important part of your website – it’s the first thing a potential customer sees. Make sure your homepage provides visitors with all the information they requiere in order to make a purchase – what you have to offer, who you are and your contact information. Think about the fact that you have less than 10 seconds to make a good impression and what you want to communicate to potential customers. It’s a good idea to keep your homepage clean and easy to read – your overall text should not be longer than 120 words.   Make sure your website is fast Nobody likes to wait for pages to load. If your page fails to load quickly enough you’ll most likely miss out on a potential customer. There’s a direct correlation between website speed and the conversion rate of a website. Apart from that, Google also takes loading time into account – a slower loading website will rank lower than a fast loading website. So, if you want to have a great website you’ll need to consider your speed. Try getting a better host for your website, minimize HTTP requests, use a CDN, minimize CSS, JavaScript and HTML and you’re good to go.   Image optimization is important One of the most important parts of a website is images – these tend to be very large and take a considerable amount of bandwidth, effectively slowing your website. By using a few tools you can make your website faster and also save bandwidth. Image optimization is based on choosing the right size and format, using images only when it is necessary and finding a balance between weight and quality.   Build a mobile friendly website Mobile browsing recently surpassed desktop browsing so it’s extremely important to have a fully functional mobile friendly website. Luckily enough, it’s not hard to modify your website and make it responsive. You can simply use CSS media queries to get the job done.   Using webfonts instead of icons is a great idea Using webfonts instead of icons is extremely easy. All you need to do is download a font or create your own. Once that’s done, you’ll need to upload your files to your webserver and add the downloaded stylesheet to your website – you can increase performance by copying the stylesheet’s content directly into your website’s style.css file. Now, all you need to do is just drop the markup in the html file. If you prefer SVG icons, you can use those as well in the same way.   Search engine marketing & search engine optimization are important SEM and SEO should be your second priority – search engine marketing or search engine optimization campaigns can either make or break a business, thus they are two extremely important concepts especially for small businesses. When in doubt, always seek professional help – it can help you on your road to success.   Content is critical Bad content will just make visitors leave your website. Pay attention to your headlines as these can be the difference between a visitor leaving your website or staying to read the rest of the content. It’s a good idea to write catchy and relevant headlines so that visitors can quickly scan it and decide if it’s worth the read or not – large blocks of text simply will not do. Keeping your content fresh and relevant will make visitors turn into customers quicker.   Get a high quality hosting service You can’t have a high quality website without a high quality server – if you want a fast and reliable website you’ll have to use a better hosting provider. Look for a hosting provider with unlimited bandwidth, 24/7 customer service and dedicated servers. ... Read more

Why Use a Content Delivery Network? Because It Boosts Conversion: Here’s How...
What is a CDN?   A CDN or Content Delivery Network will make your website load much faster for users from all around the world. The system is simple – instead of having a single host, the CDN allows for multiple hosts all around the world and when a visitor logs in to your website they will see it through the host that’s closest to them. Starbuck’s website loads very fast no matter where you travel – they use CDNs as well.   Web hosting As you all know, each website requires its own web host in order to work properly. After you build your website, the hosting will hold all of your website’s content on a server in a data centre with other servers. These are large warehouses where companies rent servers to keep data on.   Web hosting with content delivery network The content delivery network is like an add on for your web hosting – it doesn’t replace it fully but it enhances its capabilities, effectively making your website faster. When using a CDN, the network will copy your website and store them in different servers around the globe. When a visitor comes to your website, it will now load from different countries such as the USA, Canada, England, Germany, France, etc. It will automatically load from the server that’s physically closest to your visitor.   How can this help load your website faster? All your website’s scripts and images are loading from different servers located in different countries across the globe but how does this speed up your website? Latency! Think that latency is a piece of string – the longer the string the greater the latency and the longer it takes to get to the end of it. The same concept can be applied to physical distances between data centres – the further the visitor is from the server, the further the data needs to travel and this can create delays in loading. If a user visits your website from Germany but the site’s hosting is in Atlanta, your website will still load very fast because of the data centre in Berlin. This reduces latency by a great deal.   Do you need a content delivery network? This question is often redundant as CDNs offer plenty of advantages including:   Better performance One of the first reasons why you should implement a CDN is the better performance – your website will load much faster to users regardless where they are located in the world.   SEO perks Google loves fast loading websites and takes loading speed into its ranking algorithm. With a faster loading website you’ll also get lower bounce rates and increased conversion rates, as well as higher ranking. Your content will also be indexed much faster by Google.   Higher conversion rates A one second delay in page response can result in 7% lower conversion rate – take that into account for a moment. If you increase your website’s speed by just 3 seconds that means your conversion rate will jump 21%! That’s huge!   Content delivery networks are affordable You might think the system is extremely expensive but that’s not the case at all – CDNs are quite cheap and well worth the investment.   Websites using content delivery networks are reliable Technical difficulties can be a real drag but with a CDN those problems are long gone – If one server goes down, the closest server to it will take its place. This ensures a more pleasurable web experience for your visitors.   It’s easy to switch to a CDN CDNs are not complicated to setup – they can be used on just about any platform in just a couple of minutes – Magneto, Joomla, Drupal, Wordpress, etc   Conclusions Content delivery networks are especially valuable to websites or companies with international clients or visitors – with minimal investment costs and fast returns it’s one of the best ways to grow your business.   ...

How to Write (More) Predictable and Maintainable CSS: 9 Developer Tricks
CSS is very flexible since it doesn’t impose on how you should write your CSS rules but putting CSS rules in different spots can make your stylesheet less predictable than what you’d want to go for. Maintainability problems will most likely arise when the CSS selectors cascade – this applies to other CSS pre-processors such as Sass and LESS as well. In most projects the SASS code follows the DOM structure – this means that the CSS structure is linked to the DOM. This can result in larger file sizes and the component becomes non-reusable. If the markup needs to be changed or moved, the CSS rule needs to be changed as well. Using ID selectors could lead to maintainability problems. At this point most developers would try to write a stylesheet with very specific rules – since there can be only one single element using the same ID, these are not reusable. Other aspects include ever-longer CSS files – some have over 1000 lines of code.   Think Components Think about the fact that a web page is composed of multiple components. Let’s take a services page as an example. The page is composed out of three components: Services is the entire services section Container is simply a generic container that limits size and adds some padding Service-item is a single service item   Styling VS layouting In order to make a component easily reusable and to make the CSS layout more manageable, the concepts of styling and layouting need to be differentiated. Styling means changing paddings, borders, fonts and colours. All these changes take place inside the component itself and hence do not interfere with the layout or structure of other components. The following elements fall into styling: Text align Padding Font Colour Border Background   Layouting on the other hand implies moving elements around your page and sizing them – this can affect other elements on the page. The following fall into the layouting category: Height and width Left, bottom, right or top Transform Position Margin Float Clear   Do not layout yourself You shouldn’t layout yourself because a component should style itself but give up the task of layouting to its parent. What this means is that the component doesn’t need to float on its own or have its own margins but the parent-component should layout its child components. This makes it much easier to build responsive user interfaces because the layout itself becomes more predictable. There’s no need to worry if two components look good on a screen if the parent component layouts its child component appropriately.   Components should be simple If your components have too many lines of code, you should create a different component to handle it all. In the same time, having too many components can turn into a maintenance burden – hence the option to create sub-components. Nesting subcomponents together is not allowed, so if the subcomponent needs to have its own sub-components then it should become a top level component. These rules are enforced in order to keep components simple and working smooth.   Component inheritance Sometimes a component is a specialization of another component. Adding modifier classes to the HTML markup could make it redundant and not friendly to refactoring. By using Sass we can use @extend in order to extend other components. Eg: The “services” component is a specialization of an inverted section. In this case we use @extend only for component inheritance, which is a valid use case. It’s possible to use either @extend or @mixin as long as both are used in a controlled manner. The bad thing about using @extend is that it won’t necessarily work for generated CSS files and you can’t extend from inside a @media query. If it needs to be done, the CSS structure needs to be reworked.   File structure CSS files with a large amount of lines are very hard to work with. In some cases, depending on the project’s complexity, it may be possible to put all the CSS code in a single file. For larger projects it may necessary to organize assets via controller.   Directory structure Having stylesheets with a large number of files can be very difficult to handle, so grouping them accordingly is crucial – keep in mind that each project is different and each directory structure needs to be different. Try to find a directory structure that fits your current project. Sometimes you can put all the CSS in a single directory but at other times you need to organized them by type, media type or screen size.   Wireframe – Design – Wireframe Sometimes it’s a good idea to draw another wireframe from the already finished design. But why? With the wireframe in place we’re able to look at the page as a whole, not just little portions. Naming and componentization – viewing the whole page in a glance lets you name sections easily Hierarchy and structure – it’s easier to structure your pages into sections or subsections with the wireframe in place Margins – with the wireframe you can plan your paddings and margins more efficiently   Responsive design Breakpoints can be defined for desktop, tablet, mobiles or they can be created based on content. Creating breakpoints based on content means that the site will look good on any screen size. Start with the smallest screen size and resize your window accordingly. When a component looks out of place, modify it and create a breakpoint there. Repeat the process until you reach the largest screen size you want to support.   Conclusions These are the basic ways to write more predictable and maintainable stylesheets – by applying these tips you’ll save yourself a lot of tweak work in the long run. Happy coding!   ... Read more

What Are the Top Web Development Tools for Mac OS X that Shouldn’t Miss From Your Toolkit?
Every expert from every field has his or her own tools of the trade and web development is no different – web development tools are one of the most important factors to every project and these tools could mean the difference between finishing your project on time or passing multiple deadlines. Luckily enough, plenty of top web development tools are available for just about every platform. Here is our list of OS X apps which you should include in your web development tools box:   Browsers for web development One of the most important tools for web development is a browser – you’ll need to view your website after you created it right? But it’s not so simple – you will need to test your website for many browser versions, including beta and nightly builds. With that taken into consideration, you’ll most likely need Opera Next, Chromium, Chrome Canary, Firefox Aurora, and Firefox Nightly.   Koala Koala, apart from its cute name, is another nifty web development tool which is used to compile CoffeeScript, Compass, Sass, and LESS into a browser-compliant format. If you’re using any of these techs, Koala is definitely a must.   Anvil for web development Anvil is an interesting free app which allows web developers to create .dev domains. You’ll see it as a new icon in the OS X menu bar and you can turn it on or off, create domains or add your projects to it. If you’re looking for a tiny web development tool to manage or work on your local websites with, Anvil is perfect.   Keka When handling multiple files, you need a reliable compression service to help you along. Most web developers may use ortar, rar or zip but Mac has its own built-in feature to extract and manage these formats – this service is rather limited so you’re better off with Keka. Keka is a free open source OS X app for file compression and extraction. Keka supports zip, rar, ortar, ISO, DMG, Tar, Gzip, 7z and it can extract to PAX, CAB, EXE and RAR formats. Keka allows you to split compressed files into different parts of specified sizes, apply password restrictions or automatically delete source files after extraction or compression.   Web development & Web Sharing Since Apple removed the Web Sharing option from the OS X system preference, you might want to install the Web Sharing plugin. This little plugin will allow you to host local websites under the local host address. Once you install it you’ll be able to see a new panel in System Preferences – here you’ll be able to switch web sharing off or on.   File compression, One of The Very Top Web Development Tools for Mac OS X We talked about Keka before but there are two ways you can use it to compress files. You can either download this small web development tool and install the services contextual menu or you can drag and drop your files directly into the Keka app window.   Sequel Pro MySQL is one of the most popular databases in the world – plenty of websites rely on MySQL for storing and managing databases. If you are using OS X, Sequel Pro is a must-have for web development. It’s a native OS X app built in Cocoa and it also features a nice and friendly GUI. With Sequel Pro you can create, filter databases, import, export, remove, create users and execute MySQL queries.   The iPhone Emulator All web developers need to take mobile users into account when building their websites, hence the need for a web development tool that can be used to test websites for specific platforms. Devs can use physical tablets or phones or they can go for the easier option – a simulator like iPhone Simulator. All you need to do is just install Xcode from the AppStore and you’re done – you have another web development tool in your little toolbox.   Icons8 If you’re looking to use icons, Icons8 is one of the top web development tools that you can use. Just install Icons8 and you’ll be able to search through its over 2800 collections of icons. Once you find something you like, you’ll be able to copy it to Finder, Xcode or Photoshop.   Github and SourceTree Even if you’re building a small website or a presentation website, you’ll need a control version system to track your revisions and changes to the project’s code. Github is the most popular service for version control and you can install it on OS X as well. SourceTree is another mentionable service – both of these services are the backbone of any respectable web development agency.   Poedit Poedit is the best web development tool you can use for translating websites into multiple languages. Not only that but you can translate plugins and Wordpress Themes as well with this little app.   Automator Automator is a web development tool that’s pre-installed with OS X. This little app allows users to automate tasks such as cropping multiple images at once, creating thumbnail images, changing file extensions and renaming files in batch.   Dash Dash collects documentation for a lot of the popular programming languages, including LESS, Sass, jQUery, CSS3 and HTML5. Users can search through code snippets, functions, syntax, and other valuable information. ... Read more
