Web Animation Infographics: A Map of the Best Animation Libraries for JavaScript and CSS3 plus Performance Tips

Infographic 1: The Map of Web Animation The infographic is divided into three sections, the first part is a selection of a few of the most comprehensive animation libraries which offer up all the tools one could ever wish for from easing functions and callbacks to timing control, not to mention the generic animation functions we have come to expect. We have segregated libraries which use CSS3 transition to animate elements from libraries which call on JavaScript instead. We have also selected libraries geared towards animations for SVG, WebGL or HTML5 Canvas. Infographic 2: List of Tools The second section is dedicated to the various methods for animating UI elements and any others objects in the DOM like scroll animation, parallax, sprites, 3D transformations, physics engines, and transitions.

Defining Your Own Helper Classes in Laravel 4 - Laravel - Mack Hankins

You're going to run in to some cases where you would like to use a custom Helper to accomplish a task. In Laravel 4, we can do this one of several ways, but the easiest way I found is to modify our app/start/global.php to include a custom directory on boot vs requiring each new helper individually. The first step is to create a directory under the app folder. I named mine classes, but you can name yours whatever you would like. So our directory structure should look like this app/classes.

Noherczeg wrote: Built a single page site and came to that conclusion, ROFL Bro, you'd come to that conclusion as well if you were writing a Linux Kernel in PHP.

I think the problem is people are trying the make PHP do more that serve side stuff that JavaScript should be stepping in for or that PHP itself is very raw and powerful but unorganized. This is where Laravel (not php) comes in and organizes it into something usable for humans. This is where Ruby on Rails (not ruby) comes in, Scala (not java), etc. PHP should really only do things on the server NOT create the html and css and client stuff. Using jQuery is a great step but if you DEDICATE client side operations to JS with a frame work (angular, backbone, ember, etc.) and dedicate business logic to PHP you will have an amazing experience in developer applications.

My name is Adam Chambers, I’m a senior engineer at Digital Surgeons and a lead developer on our open source project Gumby Framework. In this tutorial I’m going to take you through the process of installation and configuration of a Gumby project and then put together a simple web page.

First off I’d like to apologise for my hilarious colleague and fellow Gumby lead dev, Craig Keller. His passion and admiration for my nationality and all things English never fails to amaze me, hence this (slightly patronising) design we’re going to build. Anyway, disclaimers aside, lets dive in. Here’s what we’re going to build in it’s finished state: View the Demo.

Responsive Website v. Native Mobile App. Many business owners and entrepreneurs struggle with whether they should design a responsive website that works across devices or focus exclusively on building a native mobile app. It’s a difficult choice to make since both options present advantages and disadvantages that must be taken into consideration when moving forward. As of last year, apps from retail businesses took up to 27 percent of consumer’s time, which sheds lights on how critical a mobile app can be to reaching your customers where they are active online. At the same time, 67 percent of consumers say they are more likely to purchase from a mobile-friendly website than they are from a website not optimized for devices other than desktop.

It’s a tough call to make when deciding between responsive design or an app, but in the end, it depends on the goals of your business.
