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.

Five interesting ways to use for image art direction

When we saw Chris put up a list of cloud-hosted data-stores, we couldn’t resist letting him know that we also had one of those, only ours is a fully featured CMS that come with a rich query language and an open source, real time, collaborative authoring tool that you can tailor to your specific needs using React. It’s called “Add us to your list!” we asked Chris. “No, your stuff is interesting, can’t you write about you,” he replied. “Maybe something that would be useful for people working with images.” Challenge accepted! Systems like Sanity wants to free your content from the specific page it happens to be sitting on, so that you can flow it through APIs. That way you can reuse your painstakingly crafted content anywhere you need it. So, what does this mean for images? Images are the odd ones out. We can capture documentation articles,…

Using data in React with the Fetch API and axios

If you are new to React, and perhaps have only played with building to-do and counter apps, you may not yet have run across a need to pull in data for your app. There will likely come a time when you’ll need to do this, as React apps are most well suited for situations where you’re handling both data and state. The first set of data you may need to handle might be hard-coded into your React application, like we did for this demo from our Error Boundary tutorial: See the Pen error boundary 0 by Kingsley Silas Chijioke (@kinsomicrote) on CodePen. What if you want to handle data from an API? That’s the purpose of this tutorial. Specifically, we’ll make use of the Fetch API and axios as examples for how to request and use data. The Fetch API The Fetch API provides an interface for fetching resources. We’ll…

10 Reasons Why You Should Start Your New Project in Drupal 8 (instead of Drupal 7)

Sorry Drupal 7, it’s not you, but it’s time to move on… (to Drupal 8). As developers, we sometimes forget that we live in a tech bubble. In our highly technical world we assume things that not everyone sees. For example, there are still reasons that clients frequently cite to justify staying in an old version of Drupal, in this case Drupal 7, instead of starting a new project straight away in Drupal 8. This is true even when we are talking about starting a brand new project (as opposed to just migrating). Most of the time these reasons are business-related, or politically-related reasons — not technical. And the problem is that without having the right technical background, these reasons often cause clients to underestimate the impacts and benefits that are achieved by making the right choice based on the technology. In this post, I’ll try to give you enough…

YOOtheme Pro Review: Strong Theme and Page Builder for WordPress and Joomla

Meta: This YOOtheme review focuses on YOOtheme Pro features, functionalities and the corresponding pricing, plus overall efficacy. For now, forget about all the fancy sales language you know. Or your products’ amazing and exceptional features. There’s only one thing that will make your traffic stay immediately they land on your site. Yes, you’re dead right. It all comes down to your web design. And the numbers are astonishing. Basically, 94% of your traffic would not trust a site with poor design. Chances are, they’ll just leave to engage other businesses with better-designed sites. That’s why I’ve always been extremely keen about the themes and templates I adopt for my sites, especially if they come from third-party providers. Speaking of which, WordPress users have always been lucky when it comes to this. We have a wide range of options to choose from, including dedicated theme providers, and page-builders that also come…

Solved with CSS! Logical Styling Based on the Number of Given Elements

This post is the third in a series about the power of CSS. Article Series: Colorizing SVG Backgrounds Dropdown Menus Logical Styling Based On the Number of Given Elements (this post) Did you know that CSS is Turing complete? Did you know that you can use it to do some pretty serious logical styling? Well you can! You don’t have to set all of your logic-based styling rules in JavaScript, or even have to use JavaScript to set classes you are styling against. In many cases, CSS can handle that itself. I’m still discovering new CSS tricks everyday, and it just makes me love it even more. This year, I started working at Bustle Digital Group. In media, as with a lot of products, the engineering team builds a platform that should support all use cases. Our CMS provides capabilities for authors and editors to create articles as well as…

Combining the Powers of SEM and BIO for Improving CSS

CSS is easy, some might argue, but that “easiness” can cause messy code. This is especially true through power of preprocessors like Sass or Less where, if you aren’t careful, your CSS can become harder to deal with instead of easier. Sass? Harder? This Gist shows a great example of Sass nesting hell. If your Sass code looks like that, you can definitely improve your code with SEM & BIO, a CSS technique I’ll introduce you to now! In this article, I am going to use the code example below to explain how SEM and BIO works and how they can help enhance your CSS strategy. See the Pen by thebabydino (@thebabydino) on CodePen. Generally, SEM is concerned with high level CSS philosophy whereas BIO is an actual technique to help you write better CSS to achieve SEM. The main purpose of both SEM and BIO is to better handle…

The OSTraining Podcast #22: Andrew Embler and Concrete5

Andrew is the founder and CTO of Concrete5, an open source CMS that’s comparable to WordPress, Drupal, Joomla and others. Concrete5 has been around for over a decade and has introduced some innovations that other projects still haven’t managed to equal. For example, for a long time now, Concrete5 users have been able to click on any part of the site to edit items, right there on the page. I talk with Andrew about what it’s like to run a large project for many years. He describes the ups-and-downs, including a major release that broke backwards compatability and frustrated some community members. Andrew also talks how he found a second wind, 10 years into building his project! [[ This is a content summary only. Visit for full links, other content, and more! ]] Source:

Forms, Auth and Serverless Functions on Gatsby and Netlify

Abstracting infrastructure is in our DNA. Roads, schools, water supply networks—you get the idea. Web development is no exception: serverless architectures are a beautiful expression of that phenomenon. Static sites, in particular, are turning into dynamic, rich experiences. Handling static forms, authentication, and backend functions on statically-generated sites is now a thing. Especially with the JAMstack pioneer platform that is Netlify. Recently, they announced support of AWS Lambda functions on front-end-centric sites and apps. I’ve been meaning to dive into their “backend” features since. Today, I’m doing just that, using a static Gatsby site, Netlify’s Forms, Identity, and Functions features. This tutorial will show you how to: Add static forms to your site Add user authentication for password-protected content Create an AWS Lambda function Ready to supercharge a static site with serverless features? Consider checking out Netlify’s React-powered static CMS after this post! And here’s a tutorial on a whole…
