Recently, our team discussed heavily on style guides. When and How to implement style guides? Why is it important to have style guides? Is it only applicable for the design team only, and what about developers and managers? But let’s take a step back and look into what a style guide actually is?
Animation is important in today’s trend as it brings the sense of interaction between the users and the website or application. Be it simple or complicated, the least you should have is a hover effect on the buttons of your website.
You may have spotted some cool effects seen on websites such as Nation or Keep Portland Weird, where two or more layers of overlays are animated across the page to reveal underlying content.
I have been using DigitalOcean for almost 2 years now, the first time I moved from a shared hosting to DigitalOcean, one thing that got my attention is the speed. It is inarguably faster compared to most shared hosting. Since then, I’ve been setting up most websites using DigitalOcean, Laravel, WordPress, Virtual Servers and many more.
We’re halfway through 2016 right now and we’d like to encourage our readers to keep on developing (and rockin’). We’ve covered a lot of ground on various web development highlights, and we’ll be covering a whole lot more.
In the past, it was commonly believed that only designers should only involve themselves in user-centered design and that developers would only build the functionality of these designs. However, times have changed and developers should also learn to understand users and implement this mentality in their work.
It’s finally here! Well this was last week but there’s no harm in being excited. The big news is that jQuery 3.0 will become the only version of jQuery. The 1.12 and 2.2 branches will continue to receive critical support patches for a while, but will not get any new features or major revisions.
Despite the 3.0 version number, these releases shouldn’t be too much trouble when it comes to upgrading existing code. Don’t worry much on the complexity of migrating to the new version of jQuery, the devs were fairly kind to provide a guide and also a plugin to check compatibility issues before you migrate your codes.
Note that jQuery 3.0 will not support IE6-8. If you need IE6-8 support, you can continue to use the latest 1.12 release.
Adobe has just launched its news suite called Adobe Spark! It was launched last night (local time) and we think it’s big and useful! On mobile, it is actually an upgrade of the three apps that Adobe has been operating.
Style guides have no fixed definition as its meaning changes depending on what area it is applied to. However, one thing that all style guides have in common is its usage; to provide a general guideline for the team to refer to. This gives the team a base of mutual understanding on what needs to be done. It can also be used across departments between developers, designers and project managers.
