CommonJS: JavaScript Standard Library

CommonJS: JavaScript Standard Library
JavaScript is a powerful object oriented language with some of the fastest dynamic language interpreters around. The official JavaScript specification defines APIs for some objects that are useful for building browser-based applications. However, the spec does not define a standard library that is useful for building a broader range of applications. The CommonJS API will fill that gap by defining APIs that handle many common application needs, ultimately providing a standard library as rich as those of Python, Ruby and Java. The intention is that an application developer will be able to write an application using the CommonJS APIs and then run that application across different JavaScript interpreters and host environments. With CommonJS-compliant systems, you can use JavaScript to write:

The State Of JavaScript: Introduction The State Of JavaScript Depending on who you ask, right now JavaScript is either turning into a modern, reliable language, or a bloated, overly complex dependency hell.

Best Practices for Node.js Development Last updated 13 October 2015 For most of the nearly twenty years since its inception, JavaScript lacked many of the niceties that made other programming languages like Python and Ruby so attractive: command-line interfaces, a REPL, a package manager, and an organized open-source community. Thanks in part to Node.js and npm, today’s JavaScript landscape is dramatically improved. The following are the possible ways to create professional animations in SVG: – Medium Export your SMIL animations from a graphics application. The standard way to produce SVG animations with SMIL is to create them in applications like Adobe Animate CC and similar others (see the section below for a list), and then using plugins like Flash2svg to export them in SVG. The Flash2svg add-on, created by the very talented Tom Byrne, is a marvel. With it you can export from Adobe Animate CC almost all animations+sound as a single self-contained SVG file. Even entire cartoon episodes like this one: If you need to use the SVG animation for cartoon editing or video production, you can then import the resulting SVG file in your editing software, for example Adobe After Effects.

The key words “MUST”, “MUST NOT”, “REQUIRED”, “SHALL”, “SHALL NOT”, “SHOULD”, “SHOULD NOT”, “RECOMMENDED”, “MAY”, and “OPTIONAL” in the normative parts of this document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119. However, for readability, these words do not appear in all uppercase letters in this specification. CSS, JS or SMIL: What Should You Use For Animations? – Designhill Blog Web designers usually have three different tools available at their disposal for creating animations. These tools are CSS, JS or SMIL. But the bigger question here is- which is the one that offers maximum benefits in terms of functionality and near perfect designs?
