Put your HTML development on steroids using Yeoman

Last year, Addy Osmani told me about a "tool" called Yeoman. Although it was a great tip back than, I didn't directly feel the need to make use of the tool. Until a couple of weeks ago.

While starting another web project, I started downloading the always used framewoks like jQuery and the HTML5 Boilerplate (or making my own boilerplate which holds everything already). This is actually pretty boring, while I really want to start developing! That's where Yeoman can help out.

Yeoman

At first glance, Yeoman is just a tool that can help you to build web application with ease. But saying so wouldn't give Yeoman enough credits. As stated on their website, Yeoman 1.0 is more than just a tool. It's a workflow; a collection of tools and best practices working in harmony to make developing for the web even better. In this article, I'll try to explain in my words how to work with Yeoman and why it's so awesome. It can help you become a better allround webdeveloper!

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.

Did you check out the demo to see what we're going to do? This is how you can generate this pixellogo yourself!

Animated fullscreen background image slideshow

Do you remember the Advanced jQuery background image slideshow I posted last year? Because of that tutorial, reader Evens sent me an e-mail, asking how the effect on the website from Climate Crisis could be recreated. It seemed liked an intersting thing to do, so I took the time to try to create the same effect.

With the help of some small HTML, nifty CSS and loads of jQuery, we're able to create an animated fullscreen background image slideshow. Read the rest of this article to learn how it's built.

You can easily change the script by changing some variables. It also features image preloading and keyboard navigation (try pressing the numeric keys). The background images have a width of 2000px, just to cover most of the currently used screen resolutions. Check out the demo what we're going to create!

The script uses the Templates and Easing jQuery plugins. Tested and working on Firefox, Safari and Chrome. I've added a reference video below to show how the page should look like. As always, comments are left on the source code to explain what it does.

jQuery Quickie: Smooth animated quote display

Time for yet another jQuery quickie! These relatively simple jQuery tutorials will show you a simple, yet beautiful effect making use of jQuery. This way, you can learn and create something very cool at the same time.

A couple of days ago, I saw a commercial on TV showing some quotes from people displayed in boxes. I wanted to take that concept, and bring it to the web using my favorite JavaScript framework. Today, we'll learn how to create a smooth animated quote display for you to use!

Smooth animated quote display

Simply check out the demo to see what we're going to create. Download the source code to learn how it works, or read the tutorial for more explanation.

Sadly, fonts will render different in several browsers. I've tested this script (and made it working for) on Firefox, Chrome and Safari (even the iPhone displays it correct). Other browsers aren't tested, but the video below also shows how the animation should look like.

Ready to take a look at how this example works? Let's dive under the hood!
