How JavaScript & HTML5 Are Remaking the Web The Future Web Series is supported by Elsevier's SciVerse Application Marketplace and Developer Network. The SciVerse applications platform enables developers to build apps based on trusted scientific content. Learn more. HTML5 is no longer just a buzz word. With browsers implementing more HTML5 features across platforms and devices, developers are starting to integrate many of the new features and frameworks into their web apps, websites and web designs. Although HTML5 is its own standard, the power of HTML5 is really only best realized with the use of CSS 3 and JavaScript. Graphics libraries like WebGL can extend JavaScript, allowing for the creation of interactive 3D graphics within the browser all while utilizing the plugin-free nature of the HTML canvas element.

How to Display Wordpress Sidebar on Other (Non WP) Sites While working on my latest project, DevGrow Discussions, I came across the need to embed my entire WordPress sidebar on a non-WordPress site – specifically a bbPress forum. Since I make use of various widgets to display popular posts and other dynamic content, simply copying and pasting the HTML would not suffice. In the end, there are really only two ways of going about this: Include your wp-load.php file in your application and in effect load the entirety of WordPress to get access to the plugin functionsUse simple caching to store the sidebar in HTML format and include it in any other application, then rebuild it as necessary when new content is published If it’s not obvious enough, the first option is very costly in terms of database queries and can significantly slow your site down.

jQuery.dotdotdot, advanced cross-browser ellipsis for multiple line content. A Visual Explanation of SQL Joins I love the concept, though, so let's see if we can make it work. Assume we have the following two tables. Table A is on the left, and Table B is on the right. We'll populate them with four records each. id name id name -- ---- -- ---- 1 Pirate 1 Rutabaga 2 Monkey 2 Pirate 3 Ninja 3 Darth Vader 4 Spaghetti 4 Ninja Let's join these tables by the name field in a few different ways and see if we can get a conceptual match to those nifty Venn diagrams. There's also a cartesian product or cross join, which as far as I can tell, can't be expressed as a Venn diagram: SELECT * FROM TableA CROSS JOIN TableB This joins "everything to everything", resulting in 4 x 4 = 16 rows, far more than we had in the original sets.

jQuery slideViewer 1.2 Download slideViewer 1.2 (last updated july 9 2010) What's this? slideViewer is a lightweight (3.5Kb) jQuery plugin wich allows to instantly create an image gallery by writing just few lines of HTML such as an unordered list of images: slideViewer checks for the number of images within your list, and dinamically creates a set of links to command (slide) you pictures. Also, clicking on each image will make the gallery slide forward or backward, depending on the area you are clicking (eg: clicking the left part of a picture will move the slides backward, and viceversa for the right part of the picture). You can optionally customize the kind of animation and its duration and also enhance(*) the default tooltips with some fancy tooltips. You can choose where to put the user interface (the numbered links); it can be above or below your set of images. You don't need to specify the width and height for your images (but all the images within a single gallery must have the same width/height!) New!

8 Useful jQuery Snippets For URL’s & Querystrings In any web project you will inevitably come across a situation where being able to extract information or use the current page URL would be useful. If server-side code is not available to help we can use javascript to get this information. The following are examples of useful code snippets that can be used – some of the examples use standard javascript functions and are not specific to jQuery: 1. Get The Current Page URL A very simple snippet, which stores the current page URL in a variable: 2. A very simple snippet, which stores the root URL in a variable: 3. Retrive a hash parameter and store in a variable: 4. In the example below we replace the hash parameter, which we get from the clicked link. 5. If you need to redirect a page using jQuery: 6.

The photography is by talented Robert Bejil, check out his awesome photos on his Flickr photostream. So, let’s get started! The Markup The HTML structure consists of a main container and an unordered list where each item is one of the columns. Let’s take a look at the style. The CSS We are going to stretch the container for the list over the page and hide the overflow. We will give enough width to the ul so that the li elements which will be floating, don’t wrap to the next “line” when they expand: The overflow of the li elements is going to be hidden as well because our content inside is actually much bigger.

Making a Custom YouTube Video Player With YouTube’s APIs Martin Angelov Video presentations are a great addition to any product page. With a presentation you can showcase your product’s features without making the visitor read through long paragraphs of text. But apart from producing the video, you still need to manually convert it and find (or code) some sort of flash player that will display it on your site. The other possible path is that you upload it to a video sharing site such as youtube, but you are going to have a rough time trying to incorporate the player into your design. Luckily for us, YouTube does provide a solution to this problem – their chromeless player (a stripped down version of the regular embeddable player), which allow you to build and style your own custom controls. The Idea Today we are going to make a jQuery plugin which uses YouTube’s chromeless player, and creates our own set of minimalistic controls, which allows for perfect integration with your designs. Using the plugin to embed videos is extremely easy: script.js

¿La perfecta galería de imágenes? Usando PhotoSwipe con jQuery - Envato Tuts+ Web Design Tutorial Recientemente descubrí una librería Javascript llamada PhotoSwipe y estoy realmente impresionado. Es una brillante librería que superpone una imagen o un grupo de imágenes en tu página, un efecto popularmente conocido como lightbox. PhotoSwipe es actualmente desarrollada por Dmitry Semenov-él la reconstruyó el año pasado cuando tomó las riendas del proyecto. Las mejoras incluyen: Modular: PhotoSwipe es construida en varios módulos, permitiéndote omitir características particulares que no necesitas. Ésto mantiene la librería muy ligera. La única desventaja es que PhotoSwipe no se ejecuta inmediatamente. "PhotoSwipe es hecha simple y rápida para los usuarios finales, no para los desarrolladores. Pero puede ser usada conjuntamente con otras librerías. Iniciemos. Comenzaremos con: Creando los directorios del proyecto. La estructura HTML es la parte más esencial ya que eventualmente indicará como escribimos JavaScript. Establecimos el HTML, ahora podemos proceder con JavaScript.
