Gethu Games 20 examples of SVG that will make your jaw drop | Web design SVG (or Scalable Vector Graphics) is an XML-based file format that enables developers and designers to create high quality, dynamic graphics and graphical applications with a great level of precision.All modern browsers support rendering SVG: however, for older browsers like IE6, 7 and 8 without native support, you can fall back on polyfills such as SVG Web that use Flash for rendering content. This enables you to easily target the majority of users online without worrying about compatibility issues. For mobile web developers wondering about compatibility, I'm happy to report that iOS 3.2+, Opera Mini 5+, Opera Mobile 10+ and Android 3+ also support rendering SVG graphics out of the box. As there are a few similarities between what the <canvas> element and SVG have to offer, developers often wonder which of these they should opt to use. The answer to this concern is actually both.

Anouk Chaffart · Limited Edition Getting Started with Three.js Introduction I have used Three.js for some of my experiments, and it does a really great job of abstracting away the headaches of getting going with 3D in the browser. With it you can create cameras, objects, lights, materials and more, and you have a choice of renderer, which means you can decide if you want your scene to be drawn using HTML 5's canvas, WebGL or SVG. And since it's open source you could even get involved with the project. For all the awesomeness of Three.js, there can be times where you might struggle. 1. I will assume that you have at least a passing knowledge of 3D, and reasonable proficiency with JavaScript. In our 3D world we will have some of the following, which I will guide you through the process of creating: A scene A renderer A camera An object or two (with materials) You can, of course, do some crazy things, and my hope is that you will go on to do that and start to experiment with 3D in your browser. 2. Just a quick note on support in the browsers. 3. 4. 5.

The Internet map The map of the Internet Like any other map, The Internet map is a scheme displaying objects’ relative position; but unlike real maps (e.g. the map of the Earth) or virtual maps (e.g. the map of Mordor), the objects shown on it are not aligned on a surface. Mathematically speaking, The Internet map is a bi-dimensional presentation of links between websites on the Internet. Every site is a circle on the map, and its size is determined by website traffic, the larger the amount of traffic, the bigger the circle. Users’ switching between websites forms links, and the stronger the link, the closer the websites tend to arrange themselves to each other. Charges and springs To draw an analogy from classical physics, one may say that websites are electrically charged bodies, while links between them are springs. Also, an analogy can be drawn from quantum physics. Anyway, the real algorithm of plotting The Internet map is quite far from the analogies given above. Semantic web The Internet Phenomenon

Where to Find the Best Free Stock Photos Free stock photos aren’t that hard to find on the Internet; there are many sites that provide them. The problem is finding high-quality stock photos that don’t have unclear licenses on how you can use them. Dustin Senos, Designer at Medium, knows this conundrum all too well. That’s why he put together a list of sites where you can get free stock photos that don’t suck. I thought I’d share Dustin Senos’s list of 10 websites here, discuss the sites he mentioned in his post, and also show you sample stock photos I got from the sites: 1. This site sends you 7 high-res photos every week, straight to your email inbox. Examples from Little Visuals: Source Source Source 2. Unsplash is similar to Little Visuals, but instead of 7 stock photos every 7 days, they’ll give you 10 every 10 days. Examples from Unsplash: Source Source 3. This site has a vision: to reverse the association of stock photos as being "dull" or "lifeless." Examples from Death to the Stock Photo: 4. Examples from New Old Stock: Source 5.
