Online Web editors, like JSbin, plnkr, and CodePen, are awesome. They allow you to easily work on an idea without all of the muss and fuss of having to spin up a server. You can also share the idea with friends or the entire Internet easily.
Offline availability of your web application will give a little extra comfort to your users. If using Local storage an appropriate choice to enable web applications to work offline with dynamic data (see my post on Local storage), Application cache (hereafter AppCache) is a good choice for making the static content of the web application available offline.
Remember my last post about WebSockets and AngularJs? Today we’re going to play with something similar. I want to create a key-value interface to play with websockets. Let me explain it a little bit.
This article represents high level concepts and code sample/example for how to create a custom filter.
For my next project and, after looking for candidates and reading some hundreds of lines of documentation, I finally choose to work with the so called MEAN stack: mongodb, express, angular and node.
This walkthrough explains how to add an SSL certificate to your server. This is based on using a linux based machine (in my case Ubuntu) and nginx as the server.
Bottle doesn't do much. But what little it does do is a pretty tidy fit with tiny little demonstrations of super-simple HTML interactions.

I hope this quick post will get you thinking about how to use meta data in WordPress and your plugin development.
This year I’ve been giving an evolving live demonstration of coding a Fully Buzz Word Compliant, mobile-friendly web application. The aim of the demo is to show, via a real-world application rather than snippets or a toy example, where these popular technologies sit in your archtecture, and how they interact with each other.
Responsive design solves such problems, optimising the browsing experience for the particular screen size in question to ensure it offers the best possible experience.
Great landing pages can be the difference between a reasonably successful site and an incredibly successful site.

I've recently been looking at retrofitting keyboard navigation support to JS Bin, but I was immediately struck by the totally lack of visibility on what was in focus. So I built a mini utility to visualise what's happening.
It has started to become a common requirement for Web applications to have some support for offline usage. HTML 5 local storage (hereafter local storage) is one of the options to consider when you need to support offline use of your web application. But what is local storage, and when should you consider it. Let’s go through what you need to know before you start using local storage.
This article represents take away code for working with ReactJS and Bootstrap CSS library.
The web is evolving at a crazy pace. Every day new frameworks, tools, and libraries are released with the ambition, if not the potential, to become the next jQuery.
Earlier this week a user asked me a question about integrating Ionic into an existing application. I had some thoughts on this and spent some time talking to Holly Schinsky as well about the topic.
