This is another one I've wanted to write forever. Man, I've tried a bunch of times. No ruck. Not Rucky.
I've been developing jQuery plugins for quite a while now, and I've become rather comfortable with a particular style of plugin development for my scripts. This article is meant to share the pattern that I've found especially useful for plugin authoring. It assumes you already have an understanding of plugin development for jQuery; if you're a novice plugin author, please review the jQuery Authoring Guidelines first. There are a few requirements that I feel this pattern handles nicely: Claim only a single name in the jQuery namespace Accept an options argument to control plugin behavior Provide public access to default plugin settings Provide public access to secondary functions (as applicable) Keep private functions private Support the Metadata Plugin
This chapter is about writing style sheets with style. By showing you case studies and how they are constructed, we hope to give you a sense of how CSS can be used to encode the visual presentation you want to achieve. Also, more importantly, if you follow the guidelines in this chapter your documents will behave well on a wide range of web devices. For example, they will scale gracefully from one screen size to another. Use ems to make scalable style sheets
In computer programming with object-oriented programming languages , duck typing is a style of dynamic typing in which an object's methods and properties determine the valid semantics, rather than its inheritance from a particular class or implementation of a specific interface. The name of the concept refers to the duck test , attributed to James Whitcomb Riley (see history below), which may be phrased as follows: When I see a bird that walks like a duck and swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, I call that bird a duck. [ 1 ] In duck typing, one is concerned with just those aspects of an object that are used, rather than with the type of the object itself.
