Most people vaguely understand that it refers to websites that work just as well on desktops as they do on smartphones, but there's a lot more to it than that, leading to widespread confusion (heck, I'll admit, I've even been known to misuse it myself, even after fellow Co.Design writer John Pavlus called me a dummy for it). But the principles of responsive design aren't that hard to understand, thanks to this amazing collection of animated GIFs put together by the guys Froont, a San Francisco-based company specializing in making tools for designers to create responsive websites. Spend just a few minutes with these GIFs, and you'll never be hoightily corrected by a design pedant about "responsive websites" versus "adaptive websites" ever again. In fact, you can be that hoighty pedant!

Equal Column Height With CSS Ttraditionally, a website consists of the main section and a sidebar on the layout. Commonly, the content that is contained in the main section could be longer than the sidebar, which makes the height of these two sections unequal. In some cases, we want the height to be equal. There are actually some solutions to this situation, and one that is frequently recommended is the Faux Column technique. View Demo Recommended Reading: CSS Back to Basics: Terminology Explained Parser Combinators Made Simple April 18, 2011 # Parsing theory has been around for quite a long time, but it is often thought of as magic by the swarms of people who haven't bothered to read about it, and see how plain and dry it actually is. Algorithms for parsing LR(k) grammars (meaning Left-to-right, Right-most derivation, k tokens lookahead) for instance, normally just traverse a state machine that was computed before hand (either by hand, or by using a parser generator such as bison or yacc).

Create Beautiful <SELECT> Dropdown With EasyDropDown.js <SELECT> is a HTML element that is used for selecting items using a drop-down list. It’s useful for when you have a very long list of items to select such as dates. Unfortunately, for those who want to create a fancy web page, the default<SELECT>in their web browser is not very user-friendly and doesn’t look great style-wise. To style the element, CSS should be enough. Easy Facebook Scripting in Python « Heterogenous Mixture UPDATED: fbconsole Pypi Package and Github Repository Sometimes you just want to write a little script using Facebook’s api that updates your status, or downloads all your photos, or deletes all those empty albums you accidentally created. In order to streamline my writing of one-off facebook scripts, I created a micro api client that implements the client-side authentication flow and has a few utility functions for accessing the graph api and fql. To use this mini api client, all you have to do is put 4 lines of code at the top of your python script: Now you can specify the permissions you’ll need for your script (from the list of available api permissions) and authenticate yourself:
