rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.


Google Rolls Out New Markup for Displaying Data Tables in Search Results by @MattGSouthern

Google has introduced a new type of schema markup for displaying data tables directly in search results. This markup is intended to be utilized in news articles by data journalists. Although it can be used on any dataset, regardless of the publisher. Some examples of what qualifies as a dataset, according to Google, are: A table or a CSV file with some data An organized collection of tables A file in a proprietary format that contains data A collection of files that together constitute some meaningful dataset A structured object with data in some other format that you might want […]The post Google Rolls Out New Markup for Displaying Data Tables in Search Results by @MattGSouthern appeared first on Search Engine Journal.

Getting to Know a Legacy Codebase

Harry Roberts talks about some methods for getting comfy with a new (“specifically CSS”) code base. Harry’s done this a lot as someone who parachutes into new code bases regularly as a consultant. But I think this is also quite interesting for people starting a new job. So much web development work is working on existing sites, not green fielding new ones.

Framer X

Framer X is a brand new app that’s about to be released and this quick demo reel takes us on a tour through some of the changes to the previous app—it all looks super exciting. As a designer, I’m most interested in the prototyping tools and being able to quickly explore complex scene transitions between one state and another. But as a developer, I’m interested in how it all ties into React. The website describes it like so: Use actual React in your projects to create interactive components from scratch. Want more control? Create custom UI in the properties panel for your components. I can imagine a wonderful near-future where it’s possible to tie Framer X into a design system so that folks on a team can use all the real life React components without having to worry if they’re up-to-date or not.

Melatonin

I read every line of this long-ish post on melatonin. I regularly take a small bit of this (apparently too much though) when I’m struggling to sleep. It works like a charm. Running an early-stage company while trying to manage 3 kids (one being a newborn that doesn’t sleep through the night) requires a bit of chemistry to make things “work” on occasion… it is what it is I guess. But, I do appreciate learning more about the things that I put in my body. The post Melatonin appeared first on John Saddington. Source: https://john.do/

New in Basecamp 3: Image Galleries

At Basecamp, we write a lot—from announcements to pitches, and everything in between.Quite often, we’re presenting something that has a Before and After, like a mockup or interface design that’s been revised. Until now, this was always kind of frustrating. Basecamp only supported full-width images, so it could be difficult to quickly compare two images at once.Today we’ve added support for side-by-side image galleries inside written posts!This is a subtle but substantial change: galleries support and enhance your writing by making it more fluid, expressive, and precise. They’re great for sharing screenshots, comparisons, mockups, sketches, photos, and so on.Here’s how it works.Creating a GalleryIn any rich text field in Basecamp 3, you can make a gallery of images by uploading multiple images at the same time. You can do that in the file-browser dialog, or by dragging and dropping files into Basecamp directly.Dragging images to make a galleryWhen you do that, Basecamp will automatically group the images…

The trick to viewport units on mobile

Viewport units have always been controversial and some of that is because of how mobile browsers have made things more complicated by having their own opinions about how to implement them. Case in point: should the scrollbar be taken into account for the vw unit? What about a site’s navigation or page controls — should those count in the calculation? Then there are physical attributes of the devices themselves (hello, notch!) that can’t be overlooked. First, a little context The spec is pretty vague about how viewport units should be calculated. With mobile devices, we’re often concerned with the vertical height, so let’s look specifically at viewport height (vh): vh unit Equal to 1% of the height of the initial containing block. So yeah, no clear guidance there when it comes to handling device and browser-specific differentiations. vh was initially calculated by the current viewport of your browser. If you…
