Sass vs. LESS

Sass vs. LESS
By Chris Coyier On "Which CSS preprocessor language should I choose?" is a hot topic lately. I've been asked in person several times and an online debate has been popping up every few days it seems. It's nice that the conversation has largely turned from whether or not preprocessing is a good idea to which one language is best. Let's do this thing. Really short answer: Sass Slightly longer answer: Sass is better on a whole bunch of different fronts, but if you are already happy in LESS, that's cool, at least you are doing yourself a favor by preprocessing. Much longer answer: Read on. The Much Longer Answer The Learning Curve with Ruby and Command Line and Whatever The only learning curve is the syntax. Winner: Nobody Helping with CSS3 With either language, you can write your own mixins to help with vendor prefixes. In Sass, you can use Compass, and Compass will keep itself updated, and thus the prefix situation is handled for you. Winner: Narrowly Sass Language Ability: Logic / Loops See that?

Create an Arduino Controlled Battery Charger An Arduino and attached charging circuit can be used to monitor and control the charging of NiMH rechargeable batteries, here's how: The finished device Rechargeable batteries are a great way to power your portable electronics. They can save you a lot of money and when properly recycled, they are much better for the environment. CSS Preprocessors Compared: Sass vs. LESS There are a number of CSS Preprocessor, LESS, Sass, Stylus, and Swith CSS, just to name a few. CSS Preprocessor, as we have said often before, is primarily intended to make authoring CSS more dynamic, organized and productive. But, the question is, which of them does the job best? Well, of course, we wouldn’t be taking a look at every one of them, instead, we will only compare two of the more popular ones: Sass and LESS.

3.7V Li-Ion Battery Charger Circuit Here is a tried and tested sample circuit of a Li-Ion battery charger that can be used to charge any 3.7V Li-Ion battery using a 5VDC (USB, Solar Panel…) power supply. At the heart of the circuit is one microchip MCP73831, available in SOT-23-5 package. MCP73831 is a highly advanced linear charge management controller for use in space-limited, cost-sensitive applications.

Qu’est ce qu’un préprocesseur CSS ? - agence AntheDesign Bonjour à tous ! Un préprocesseur CSS vous aide dans l’écriture de vos feuilles de styles. Qu'apporte t'il et faut-il l'utiliser ? Простейшие усилители низкой частоты на транзисторах Усилители низкой частоты (УНЧ) используют для преобразования слабых сигналов преимущественно звукового диапазона в более мощные сигналы, приемлемые для непосредственного восприятия через электродинамические или иные излучатели звука. Заметим, что высокочастотные усилители до частот 10... 100 МГц строят по аналогичным схемам, все отличие чаще всего сводится к тому, что значения емкостей конденсаторов таких усилителей уменьшаются во столько раз, во сколько частота высокочастотного сигнала превосходит частоту низкочастотного. Простой усилитель на одном транзисторе

An Introduction to CSS Pre-Processors: SASS, LESS and Stylus CSS Pre-processors are in our development life for years. In their first implementations, they had few features. But nowadays, they are the key ingredients and must have tools for CSS development. Arduino 3 Wire Matrix Keypad: 4 Steps Keypad connected with only 3 wires to Arduino. Background: A matrix keypad can be connected to an Arduino board so that numerical data can be entered by the user. Instructions exist in various forums on how to do this. Why I don’t use CSS preprocessors Whenever I mention that I don’t use CSS preprocessors I tend to get strange looks from people who cannot imagine writing CSS without Sass. And so I have to defend my choice and explain why, over and over. Some people will understand, most won’t. OneWireKeypad Library Creator: Andrew Mascolo Jr (HazardsMind), 3/14/2014 Special thanks to pYro_65, who helped me with the structure of the library. Update(10/22/2016): Changed Num_Of_Samples to an actual precision value that you can add to the constructor. Update (4/10/2016): Fixed the jitter, removed the need for debounce and improved the stability of the key presses.

Goodbye, Zen Coding. Hello, Emmet! Back in 2009, Sergey Chikuyonok wrote an article1 to present a new way of writing HTML and CSS code. This revolutionary plugin, called Zen Coding, has helped many developers through the years and has now reached a new level. Emmet2, previously known as Zen Coding, is the most productive and time-saving text-editor plugin you will ever see. By instantly expanding simple abbreviations into complex code snippets, Emmet can turn you into a more productive developer. For those who prefer to watch instead of read, here is a summary of my favorite tricks. How Does It Work?

LM35HigherResolution The LM35 is a common TO-92 temperature sensor. It is often used with the equation temp = (5.0 * analogRead(tempPin) * 100.0) / 1024;
