Less is a CSS pre-processor, meaning that it extends the CSS language, adding features that allow variables, mixins, functions and many other techniques that allow you to make CSS that is more maintainable, themable and extendable. Less runs inside Node, in the browser and inside Rhino. There are also many 3rd party tools that allow you to compile your files and watch for changes. For example: compiles to Less can be used on the command line via npm, downloaded as a script file for the browser or used in a wide variety of third party tools.

Tired, hungry and sad? Relax, you're hibernating by CATHERINE ZANDONELLA, Daily Mail Does dull weather wear you down? Does every shop crammed with sales stock send your spirits plummeting? Edge Animate to Animate CC: Responsive Scaling and Positioning – In Flagrante Delicto! I’ve received a lot of inquiries by Edge Animate users as to how to make items responsive within Animate CC. So many, in fact, that I decided to produce a number of demonstration projects, record some video on each one, and write this little article. First, I’ll just emphasize that the way Edge Animate handles things like element scaling and sizing is very DOM-oriented… because it works within the very narrow focus of the browser DOM. Animate CC is platform-agnostic (not specifically an HTML tool) and works differently in terms of targeting a single element when targeting HTML5 Canvas (the canvas DOM element). So a lot of things like media queries and such, as employed by the Edge suite, go out the window.

How SVG Line Animation Works I bet all of you have seen that little trick where an SVG path is animated to look like it's drawing itself. It's super cool. Jake Archibald pioneered the technique and has a super good interactive blog post on how it works. Brian Suda wrote about it on 24 Ways. Polygon used it to great effect on a custom designed article and wrote about it. Codrops has some neat examples.

CSS Animation Generator CSS animations were added at the start of CSS3 which allows you to transition from one CSS style to another. To use a CSS animation you will have to start styling the element and a number of keyframes to define the transition from start to end of the animation. Before CSS animation was available, the way you would make an element change styling would be to use JavaScript to change an element's styling properties in a certain order. The advantages of using CSS animation over JavaScript driven animations is that they run smoother than JavaScript, which commonly skipped keyframes. Browser rendering engines are built to work better with CSS animation. They are also easier to develop as all coding of the animation is done in CSS and you just select which properties to change at certain keyframes.

Modules · nodejs/node-v0.x-archive Wiki This page is deprecated. Feel free to add to it, but be advised that it is, at best, a faded relic of Node modules that were written before npm was a dominant force in the Node.js ecosystem. It is not all that useful any more. If you are a newcomer, it can be handy to at least get a starting point.

Revised Font Stack Serious efforts are being made to get more typeface choices on the web to enhance web typography. Still, most of us prefer web-safe fonts like: Verdana, Georgia, Times New Roman and Arial. Though choices are limited, yet the number can be increased by exploring other pre-installed fonts. “… font stacks are ultimately design factors, and should be scrutinized as such.”—Nathan Ford, Better CSS font stacks
