Recreating the IBM Lotusphere logo in CSS3

A while ago, I visited the IBM Lotusphere 2012 conference page. One thing that I noticed immediately, was their beautiful logo on the background. Although it's design is very minimal and simple, the logo just looks very good.

I wanted to recreate this logo using only HTML and CSS3. The main key to this effect is using the border-radius and overflow:hidden properties. I've created two versions: One that uses extra HTML elements, the second one uses CSS3 pseudo elements.

Check out the demo to see how the logo looks like in your browser. Keep in mind, no images are used at all. Feel free to dig in the source code as well and maybe learn a couple of things.

Let's take a look under the hood to see how you can create something like this yourself. It's actually easier that it might look!

Build native-looking apps for iOS

Lately, I've been messing around with cool HTML5 stuff a lot. One of the things that HTML5 is trying to reach, is the market of mobile devices. A long time ago (when I got my first iPhone), I wrote an article on how to add a webclip for easy access to your website. But since then, I've learned a couple of more things on how to build native-looking apps for iOS using only HTML.

iOS HTML Template

I've created a template/boilerplate that you can use for your next project to create native looking apps for iOS (more specifically: Mobile Safari) using nothing but HTML. Simply build your website starting with this template, bookmark it and you're done.

View or download the source code and read the comments carefully to see what's needed to create a native looking app using only HTML.

If you don't feel like fully digging into the source, but learn the pieces bit by bit, feel free to read on further. Take note that this will only work when the user bookmarks your webpage. The changes to any existing projects can be made easily, just make the following changes in the head section of your page and you're ready to go!

Working with Websockets

HTML5 has some extremely cool features, and a couple of weeks ago I took a deep dive into Websockets. This protocol, which you can recognize by the ws:// and wss:// (secure websockets) URL prefix, enables "Server side push events".

Working with Websockets

During my deep dive, I learned a couple of things that are pretty interesting. If you're into/learning HTML5, you really should try out Websockets! In my opinion, it's one of the coolest technologies they've added. Are you ready to dive and learn more about Websockets? Here are a couple of things to keep in mind when working with Websockets.

Generating the pixellogo from TechCrunch in HTML

A while ago, the popular tech blog TechCrunch launched a new design for their website. Along with this design, they released a new logo. I wanted to generate this logo in HTML using jQuery.

HTML TechCrunch Pixellogo

This logo looked like the perfect candidate to do so, since it uses huge pixels and only a couple of colours (4 shades of green). With only little HTML, CSS and jQuery, I was able to generate this logo with not much effort.

The Apple.com navigation menu created using only CSS3

A while ago (I think it was around the release of the iPad), the Apple.com website got a new navigation menu on the top of the page. This menu bar was a lot darker than the previous, grey version, but looks just as great. One thing which I noticed about the navigation, is that the buttons are created out of images. That's the moment I thought we could do better, using some nifty CSS3 techniques. So today, I present you the Apple.com navigation menu created using only CSS3.

The Apple.com navigation menu created using only CSS3

Since this demo heavily relies on CSS3, make sure you view it using a CSS3 compatible browser. The Webkit browsers (Safari and Chrome) display the effect the best, followed by the latest version of Firefox. Opera and IE don't display everything correct, but the menu seems to be working.

The menu on the Apple.com website also updated their search suggestion, which hasn't been implemented in this demo (yet), but I might create that later. For now, let's check out all the CSS3 you'll need to be able to create this fancy looking navigation menu.

Experimenting with the element() CSS function

Just like I said in my previous article; Since Firefox 4 was relesed, loads of new (CSS) features were released into the wild. Next to the :any() CSS selector, another cool CSS feature was added to the Gecko engine that I wanted to check out, and is called the element() function.

Experimenting with the element() CSS function

According to the specification, this function does the following: Starting in Gecko 2.0, you can use the element() CSS function to use an arbitrary HTML element as a background image for background and background-image. That sounds pretty interesting! Take note this only works in the latest version from Firefox, and still needs the -moz- vendor prefix (so the complete function call will be -moz-element()).

You can directly view the source from the demo to check what kind of small experiments (or checking out some bad practices) I did, but I would recommend you to read why the experiments are interesting.
