Infinity.js A ListView is a container that moves content in and out of the DOM on the scroll event. ListViews help keep repaint times of expensive pages down (and scrolling smooth) by making sure that there are never too many elements onscreen at a single time. ListViews excel at speeding up long lists of complex HTML elements, where new content is frequently appended to the end and existing content is rarely removed. ListViews are simple, and have several caveats: they can't be nested inside each other, and they can't have heights set via CSS. Additionally, ListViews can't easily change sizes except by appending or removing elements, and so list items that need to slide open or change their sizing will be difficult to implement. Appending elements to a ListView is relatively fast, but removing elements is slower — so designs that need to remove elements multiple times a second at high framerates will struggle.
currentcost « knolleary I spoke at Homecamp recently about how an ambient orb could be used to monitor home energy usage. I’ve finally gotten around to putting some of it into practice so thought I would share some of the details of the setup as well as some more of my thoughts on the subject.

Selectors Level 3 Abstract Selectors are patterns that match against elements in a tree, and as such form one of several technologies that can be used to select nodes in an XML document. Selectors have been optimized for use with HTML and XML, and are designed to be usable in performance-critical code. CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is a language for describing the rendering of HTML and XML documents on screen, on paper, in speech, etc. CSS uses Selectors for binding style properties to elements in the document. Circle Navigation Effect with CSS3 Today we want to show you how to create a beautiful hover effect for an image navigation using CSS3.

Google Chart API The Google Chart API is a tool that lets people easily create a chart from some data and embed it in a web page. Google creates a PNG image of a chart from data and formatting parameters in an HTTP request. Many types of charts are supported, and by making the request into an image tag, people can simply include the chart in a web page. Originally it was an internal tool to support rapid embedding of charts within Google's own applications (like Google Finance for example). Google figured it would be a useful tool to open up to web developers. It officially launched on December 6, 2007.
Publishing Realtime Location with the Android MapBox API - PubNub We left off by building our realtime Android location data broadcaster that detects and streams location data. But where are we going to broadcast that to? What are we going to do with it? Let’s visualize those location changes on a live-updating map. In this blog post, we’ll be using PubNub to create a simple, location sharing and viewing application for Android. Selectors 5.1 Pattern matching In CSS, pattern matching rules determine which style rules apply to elements in the document tree.
