An ultimate HTML5 cheatsheet you must have Like a lot of other web developers, I am also going to start learning HTML5. It’s time to get maximum benefit of HTML5 based browsers for our websites. Here I want to share a very useful cheatsheet on HTML5. It must be in your archive. If you are learning it. Update I have converted this cheat sheet into text form. Le top 5 des erreurs HTTP rencontrées selon Google Il arrive souvent, lors de nos petites ou longues promenades sur le web de tomber sur une page d’erreur avec un statut HTTP qui lui est propre et bien souvent… C’est très frustrant ! En utilisant Google Insights For Search, le site Royal Pingdom a pu établir un top 5 des erreurs HTTP les plus rencontrées par Google : 5ème position – Erreur HTTP 401 : unauthorized, cette erreur apparaît lorsqu’un internaute tente d’accéder à une page web dont l’accès est restreint. 4ème position – Erreur HTTP 400 : bad request, apparaît lorsque la requête émise par votre application web (comme par exemple votre navigateur we) est erronnée. 3ème position – Erreur HTTP 403 : forbidden, cette erreur est similaire à la 401, sauf qu’ici, aucune possibilité de login/password n’apparaît. 2ème position – Erreur HTTP 404 : not found, ce code d’erreur apparaît lorsque vous tentez d’accédez à une page/un contenu qui n’existe pas pour plusieurs raisons : url cassée, contenu déplacé, supprimé, etc…

Manifiesto futurista La publicación de este manifiesto supone la inauguración del movimiento futurista y sentaría precedente para otras vanguardias como el Manifiesto surrealista. El manifiesto es una nítida captura de la evolución cultural italiana al comienzo del siglo XX y muestra cómo parte de la vanguardia intelectual con el paso de los años habría contribuido al nacimiento del fascismo, aunque el futurismo y fascismo están separados en el tiempo, aquel apuntaba ideas como la violencia extrema que este manifiesto contiene, pudo ayudar a explicar por qué el fascismo sería la oportunidad de usar con éxito su estilo y aspecto típicamente nacionalista. Esto hace referencia al futuro. Contenido[editar] Enlaces externos[editar] Futur-ism.

mrdoob/three.js - GitHub Open Source: the Meritocracy vs the Circle of Trust There has been this idea running around the back of my head for a while, and it's only now that it is starting to crystalize into something that I can express. When we look at Open Source projects, we see that there is a hierarchy of involvement. There are different levels at which you can be involved, and at each higher level, there will be less and less individuals. Different people view success of Open Source projects differently. But I don't want to go down such an academic road today. So a lot of the measures of success can be raised by increasing the number of consumers, active contributors, and committers. So how do we increase that number, and thereby increase the probability that our Open Source project is a “success”? Well, if you are picking an project to use, i.e. deciding to become a consumer, one of the things you will look at is how active the community is (i.e. number of active contributors and number of committers). But what I do think we can say is:

Semantics You are here: Home Dive Into HTML5 Diving In This chapter will take an HTML page that has absolutely nothing wrong with it, and improve it. Parts of it will become shorter. Parts will become longer. Here is the page in question. The Doctype From the top: This is called the “doctype.” Microsoft came up with a novel solution. This idea spread like wildfire, and soon all major browsers had two modes: “quirks mode” and “standards mode.” In his seminal work, Activating Browser Modes with Doctype, Henri Sivonen summarizes the different modes: Quirks Mode In the Quirks mode, browsers violate contemporary Web format specifications in order to avoid “breaking” pages authored according to practices that were prevalent in the late 1990s. (You should read the rest of Henri’s article, because I’m simplifying immensely here. Now then. That happens to be one of the 15 doctypes that trigger “standards mode” in all modern browsers. This is the HTML5 doctype: That’s it. The Root Element The <head> Element <! | To be geek or not to be How Spain's 15-M movement is redefining politics | Diego Beas With the Spanish general election just over a month away, the eight-year rule of the Socialist party will soon come to an end. José Luis Rodriguez Zapatero will be ousted and the opposition leader Mariano Rajoy finally elevated to the place he thought deserved since 2004. Business as usual for Spanish politics; the normal political give-and-take of the last 30 years between the two main parties. But, with 20% unemployment (40% among the youth) and the looming possibility that the country's finances might have to face an intervention, things in Spain these days are anything but normal. Enter the Spanish indignados, or, as they are also known here, the 15-M movement (the protest was launched with a gathering on 15 May, one week before local elections). The movement has studiously avoided engaging with ideological agendas, unions and, most importantly, professional politicians. Is this a long-term solution to Spain's debt problems? The next step is to start thinking in terms of outcomes.

holmes.css - CSS Markup Detective What does it do? The holmes.css file will display either an error (red outline), a warning (yellow outline), or a deprecated style (dark grey outline) for flags such as: Missing required attributes on tags, such as name attributes on inputs (lots of these) Potentially improvable markup, such as links with href="#" Deprecated and Non-W3C Elements - see's article on obselete tags Non-W3C Attributes - as above, just the most important ones since there are MANY Thanks to Anthony Mann, holmes now displays an informative error message when you hover over the element. Support for :after/::after on images is non-existent however in most browsers. How do I use it? Simply download a version of the CSS, minified or normal (with docs), and include a stylesheet link to it on your page. In terms of configuration, such as changing the flag colours: go nuts! Why should I use it? Browser Support Works 100% in Google Chrome 10+ Safari 5+ Opera 10+ Firefox 3.5+

La technologie peut-elle éliminer la pauvreté ? (2/2) : Distinguer le potentiel des machines de celui des hommes La Boston Review a organisé dans son numéro même des réactions nourries aux propos de Kentaro Toyama que nous évoquions la semaine dernière. Comment se préserver de l’utopie technologique ? Le Cassandre Evgeny Morozov (blog), qui s’apprête à publier un livre sur la Désillusion internet, boit du petit lait : « Les décideurs peuvent croire qu’en reconnaissant tout simplement l’échec des technologies précédentes, ils s’assurent que leurs nouvelles initiatives évitent le même sort. Si seulement c’était aussi simple que ça ! La longue histoire de l’utopisme technologique nous enseigne le contraire. Les promesses non tenues des technologies du passé dérangent rarement les partisans les plus fervents des nouveautés les plus à la pointe, qui estiment que leur outil est véritablement différent de tous ceux qui les ont précédés. Le rythme de l’innovation laisse peu de temps à l’auto-réflexion. Les machines peuvent aider à apprendre « Comment pouvez-vous éliminer la pauvreté ? Hubert Guillaud

Web Forms You are here: Home Dive Into HTML5 Diving In Everybody knows about web forms, right? You don’t know the half of it. Placeholder Text The first improvement HTML5 brings to web forms is the ability to set placeholder text in an input field. You’ve probably seen placeholder text before. When you click on (or tab to) the location bar, the placeholder text disappears: Here’s how you can include placeholder text in your own web forms: Browsers that don’t support the placeholder attribute will simply ignore it. Ask Professor Markup Q: Can I use HTML markup in the placeholder attribute? Autofocus Fields Web sites can use JavaScript to focus the first input field of a web form automatically. Because the autofocusing is done with JavaScript, it can be tricky to handle all of these edge cases, and there is little recourse for people who don’t want a web page to “steal” the focus. To solve this problem, HTML5 introduces an autofocus attribute on all web form controls. What’s that? Autofocus with fallback

Adobe lance une suite d'outils de développement HTML5 Vous ne vous en rendez sans doute pas compte, mais le web est dans une étape de transformation cruciale en ce moment. Nous ne parlons pas ici des usages, mais plutôt des technologies, et plus particulièrement de HTML. La dernière évolution en date des standards (HTML5) devait mettre tout le monde d’accord et permettre à l’industrie d’appréhender cette nouvelle itération avec calme et sérénité. Sauf que le torchon brûle entre le W3C (l’organisme de normalisation des standards web) et le WHATWG (le consortium qui pousse pour faire évoluer plus rapidement les standards). Dans ce contexte, difficile de se lancer dans un chantier d’évolution pour passer de HTML4 à HTML5. Bref, tout ça pour dire que la situation est plutôt instable. L’outil qui suscite le plus d’interrogations est incontestablement Edge Reflow qui est proposé pour le moment en Sneak Peek.
