Random Web Dev Finds Jan 2014
Some random web development stuff was found in January 2014. Here are the finds. Enjoy! =)
A modular way to create your Angular & Node web apps.
A MIT licensed collection of extremely useful DOM helpers and special events for jQuery 1.8 and later. Not a UI project like jQuery UI or jQuery Tools. Instead, it’s all about providing low-level utilities for things that jQuery doesn’t support.
3. Keeping Passwords in Source Control
How do you store sensitive configuration options (such as usernames, passwords, etc.) in source control? Typically what I’ve done is to just punt on the problem entirely. I create a dummy configuration file, such as conf/sample-settings.json which has the basic structure but none of the details filled out.
It is the easiest way to add great search to your website or mobile application.
It is is a funner, semantic, interactive table plugin using jQuery, HTML5, and JSON. And it’s not just for tables.
Complete solution for Web development.
An open source script that makes it easy to serve high-resolution images to devices with retina displays
9. YOU MIGHT NOT NEED JQUERY
If you’re developing a library on the other hand, please take a moment to consider if you actually need jQuery as a dependency. Maybe you can include a few lines of utility code, and forgo the requirement. If you’re only targeting more modern browsers, you might not need anything more than what the browser ships with.
10. Beware! Bats hide in your jQuery!
