After the popularity of the websanova url.js package we got a lot of requests for a node.js version. Wait no longer, it's finally here.
An important part of Node.js will be writing unit tests for your apps and it’s modules. Like most of Node.js the basics of setting this up is a snap and you can begin writing unit tests in not time.
So you've decided to dive into Node.js but you're not quite sure how to start. This article covers the simple process of getting your feet wet with Node.js.
Node.js is great for serving app. But it becomes cumbersome to deal with static files. It's much better to let an existing server such as Nginx handle this which it already does so well.
It’s been long overdue but wPaint 2.0 is finally out. The 1.0 stream was doing well but I was getting continually emailed with feature requests, and bugs particularly on mobile. With this release wPaint has been completely rewritten from the ground up.
Today we extended HTML5 Canvas to easily allow drawing some shapes through the use of simple methods.
I came across the situation the other day where I needed to trim a string. However I didn’t need to trim white space characters, I needed to trim some dollar ($) sign characters.
After finally catching up with a bunch of things on the blog we finally had a chance to work on the extensions page and got it up and running.
It’s not often we need our own jQuery events, but when we do it’s nice to know we can create an elegant solution that behaves like any other event would.
After introducing our wChar, wCheck, wInput and wSelect jQuery form plugin separately over the past couple weeks we have decided it’s only fit to show all the plugins working in harmony together.
This is a simple plugin for text boxes and textarea inputs that gives us clean looking text boxes and takes care of backwards compatibility for placeholder attributes.
The current state of select boxes on the web are just plain ugly and limited in functionality. We wanted to create a select box plugin that could be fully customizable in appearance for one.
Today I came across an error while I was linting my Intelligent RGB / HEX Converter Plugin code about requiring a radix value for parseInt(). After a quick look up on Google I could see that excluding this parameter could lead to some rather nasty bugs in your code.
I find that the appearance of radio and checkbox inputs has always been limited. Some browsers have allowed some modification of these elements but for the most part it’s quite difficult to get them to look good and fit in with more colorful designs.
Character Counters have always bothered me during development as I was never able to find a good place for them. Sometimes I had forms with multiple inputs and having a little character counter bubble above each one just made the form look bloated and messy.
It’s not very often I need an rgb / hex converter in my apps or to convert a color code quickly, but when I do I find there are never any good tools around to do it quickly.
I have never really gotten into using Grunt, but once I got it going I found out how great it is at automating so many tasks like linting, testing and minifying my files.
This is an awesome little plugin that I just came across recently that creates a flip animation on virtually any element on your screen.
Most of the jQuery modal plugins out there had either not enough options, or too many and weren’t too flexible either way.
A simple lightweight jQuery pagination plugin. Comes with ajax support allowing you to customize for your needs.
This is a handy little method to have laying around. It allows you to populate an element and clear it after a certain amount of time.
The current implementation of the .css() method in jQuery allows us to set multiple properties to an element, but only allows us to pull one property at a time.
