A Baseline for Front-End Developers 12 Apr 2012 edit I wrote a README the other day for a project that I'm hoping other developers will look at and learn from, and as I was writing it, I realized that it was the sort of thing that might have intimidated the hell out of me a couple of years ago, what with its casual mentions of Node, npm, Homebrew, git, tests, and development and production builds. Once upon a time, editing files, testing them locally (as best as we could, anyway), and then FTPing them to the server was the essential workflow of a front-end dev. We measured our mettle based on our ability to wrangle IE6 into submission or achieve pixel perfection across browsers. Many members of the community -- myself included -- lacked traditional programming experience.

Visual Index - macOS - Human Interface Guidelines Most macOS apps are built using components from AppKit, a programming framework that defines common interface elements. This framework lets apps achieve a consistent appearance across the system, while at the same time offering a high level of customization. The following AppKit elements are flexible and familiar, and they automatically update when the system introduces appearance changes. In addition to defining the interface of macOS, AppKit defines functionality your app can adopt. Through this framework, for example, your app can respond to gestures on the trackpad and enable features like drawing, accessibility, and printing. macOS tightly integrates with other programming frameworks and technologies too, like GameKit, Metal, SceneKit, and SpriteKit, enabling you to design amazingly powerful apps.
