Acquia a leader in 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management

Today, Acquia was named a leader in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management. Acquia has now been recognized as a leader for five years in a row. Acquia recognized as a leader, next to Adobe and Sitecore, in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management.Analyst reports like the Gartner Magic Quadrant are important because they introduce organizations to Acquia and Drupal. Last year, I explained it in the following way: “If you want to find a good coffee place, you use Yelp. If you want to find a nice hotel in New York, you use TripAdvisor. Similarly, if a CIO or CMO wants to spend $250,000 or more on enterprise software, they often consult an analyst firm like Gartner.”. Our tenure as a top vendor is not only a strong endorsement of Acquia’s strategy and vision, but also underscores our consistency. Drupal and Acquia are…

Brizy Review: Visual Page Building Reinforced

Meta: This Brizy Page Builder review covers everything you need to know about the WordPress plugin, with focus on how it would potentially impact your business. Well, of course, we love WordPress for its usability, and most importantly, its wide array of third-party plugins optimized for pretty much everything to do with websites. Come to think of it, we could spend a fortnight comparing different plugin categories, debating about the most essential one. However, if you’re honest, you’d acknowledge that nothing comes close to web design plugins especially when it comes to ecommerce sites. Consider this. The first impression visitors have of your website is 94% related to its overall design. That’s according to a study conducted by Northumbria and Sheffield Universities. The University of Surrey, on the other hand, released a separate report revealing that users’ assessment of your business’ credibility is 75% based on the website design. And…

Hyperlinking Beyond the Web

Hyperlinks are the oldest and the most popular feature of the web. The word hypertext (which is the ht in http/s) means text having hyperlinks. The ability to link to other people’s hypertext made the web, a web — a set of connected pages. This fundamental feature has made the web a very powerful platform and it is obvious that the world of apps needs this feature. All modern platforms support a way for apps to register a URI (custom protocol) and also have universal links (handling web links in an app). Let’s see why we’d want to take advantage of this feature and how to do it. Why have app links at all? Creating URIs that apps can open provides a unique set of benefits. A URL encapsulates the entire state of the webpage (it used to before the advent of Single Page Applications (SPAs) heavy with JavaScript and…

Drawing Images with CSS Gradients

What I mean by “CSS images” is images that are created using only HTML elements and CSS. They look as if they were SVGs drawn in Adobe Illustrator but they were made right in the browser. Some techniques I’ve seen used are tinkering with border radii, box shadows, and sometimes clip-path. You can find a lot of great examples if you search daily css images” on CodePen. I drew some myself, including this Infinity Gauntlet, but in one element with only backgrounds and minimal use of other properties. Let’s take a look at how you can create CSS images that way yourself. The Method Understanding the shorthand background syntax as well as how CSS gradients work is practically all you need to draw anything in one element. As a review, the arguments are as follows: background: <‘background-color’> || <image> || <position> [ / <size> ]? || <repeat> || <attachment> ||…

What is SVG good for?

Y’all probably wouldn’t be surprised if I told you it’s pretty awesome for icons, and icon systems. SVG icon systems can, and perhaps should be quite easy. I’m a fan of just inlining those suckers, particularly when they are pretty simple. But what else? Logos is a classic example! A lot of people dip their toes in this way. You don’t have to inline the SVG if you don’t want. It could be an <img> or background-image as well. These are really simple things though. At it’s heart, SVG is simply a vector-based image format capable of just about anything. Way higher up the complexity scale, Bustle creates incredibly cool flowcharts using SVG. Try clicking around those flowcharts and seeing all the wonderful animation. SVG is very flexibly scalable. In that example above, part of what is going on there is an animation of the viewBox specifically. Speaking of interactive…

The OSTraining Podcast #24: Jerry Eadeh on the Past and Future of Magento

When we scheduled this podcast, I planned to talk about the history of Magento. Jerry works for Nexcess, a hosting company that is famous for their Magento services. They’ve been there since Day 1. When the original Magento team were getting started, they needed hosting help with their first clients, and they called Nexcess. Nexcess even sponsored our Magento 2 Explained book! But, just two days before this podcast, the news broke that Adobe was purchasing Magento. The Magento community was in shock. In this episode, we try and digest the Adobe news. We talk about the history of Magento and try to figure out if that helps us understand what comes next for Magento. [[ This is a content summary only.

Creating a VS Code Theme

Everyone has special and perhaps, particular, tastes when it comes to their code editor. There are literally thousands of themes out there, and for good reason: a thing of beauty and enhancement to productivity for one can be a hindrance to another. It’s been an item on my bucket list to create my own theme. I was coding very late the one night, well into the small hours of the morning. Everyone in my house was sleeping and so, as usual, the only light was the glow of my screen. I know it’s not necessarily healthy to code like this, but it’s literally the time I’m most productive: there are minimal distractions, I’m not dealing with work stuff, family stuff, friend stuff, or puppy stuff. I can focus. I had some preferences set for the theme I had been using and, though they all worked well for daytime or plane…

Adobe Are the New Owners of Magento

Adobe has just purchased Magento for $1.68 billion. This deal is not a big surprise. People were predicting it a couple years ago, when Magento started partnering with Adobe. Karen Baker, a figurehead in the Magneto Community, wrote that the community had been expecting something like this. This also isn’t the first time Magento has been sold. Back in 2011, Magento was sold to eBay. That deal is generally considered to be a failure, and eBay sold Magento in 2015. Hopefully, Adobe will turn out to be better owners of Magento than eBay.  Let’s look at this deal from several angles … [[ This is a content summary only.

My thoughts on Adobe buying Magento for $1.68 billion

Yesterday, Adobe announced that it agreed to buy Magento for $1.68 billion. When I woke up this morning, 14 different people had texted me asking for my thoughts on the acquisition. Adobe acquiring Magento isn’t a surprise. One of our industry’s worst-kept secrets is that Adobe first tried to buy Hybris, but lost the deal to SAP; subsequently Adobe tried to buy DemandWare and lost out against Salesforce. It’s evident that Adobe has been hungry to acquire a commerce platform for quite some time. The product motivation behind the acquisition Large platform companies like Salesforce, Oracle, SAP and Adobe are trying to own the digital customer experience market from top to bottom, which includes providing support for marketing, commerce, personalization, and data management, in addition to content and experience management and more. Compared to the other platform companies, Adobe was missing commerce. With Magento under its belt, Adobe can better…

It All Started With Emoji: Color Typography on the Web

“Typography on the web is in single color: characters are either black or red, never black and red …Then emoji hit the scene, became part of Unicode, and therefore could be expressed by characters — or “glyphs” in font terminology. The smiley, levitating businessman and the infamous pile of poo became true siblings to letters, numbers and punctuation marks.” — Roel Nieskens Using emojis in code is easy. Head over to emojipedia and copy and paste one in. In HTML: Or in CSS: And JavaScript, too: (Alternatively, you can specify emoji with a Unicode codepoint.) However, you might run into a problem… Lost in translation: Emoji’s consistency problem The diversity of emoji across platforms might not sound like a major problem. However, these sometimes radical inconsistencies leave room for drastic miscommunication. Infamously, the “grinning face with smiling eyes” emoji ends up as a pained grimace on older Apple systems. This…

Responsive Knockout Text With Looping Video

Here’s an idea! Let’s make an an HTML <video> play inside the shape of some letters. Like “Knockout Text” except instead of an image behind, it’s video. A live demo will explain more clearly: See the Pen basic pen by Giulio Mainardi (@mgiulio) on CodePen. A key objective here is to develop this responsively. The idea is to not only scale the video in size to fit the parent container (as video generally does), but scale the text as well, maintaining the size relationship between the type and underlying video. We’re going to get there by using the CSS clip-path property to clip the video against an SVG path defined within a <clipPath> element. First we’ll cover the core concept. Then we’ll add some eye candy by adding a few more features and demonstrate them with a couple additional demos. Setting Up the Video in HTML Let’s start with the…

How Does Free Graphic Design Software Stack Up?

Graphic design is an easy kind of business to manage, but a difficult one to get started in. Until you have built up a decent number of regular clients, you may find you must watch every penny closely. If you are in this situation, the prices of popular graphic design software will be quite a shock. One of the true luxuries of running your own graphic design studio, however, is that you’re not locked in to using any particular software as you would probably be if you were an employee of somebody else. That means you’re at liberty to use whatever helps you get the job done efficiently. The idea of free graphic design software may sound exciting, but is it really up to the task? Will it allow you to create professional quality work without the high cost? Let’s find out. 1. PhotoShop vs GIMP  GIMP default interface GIMP…

A Short History of WaSP and Why Web Standards Matter

In August of 2013, Aaron Gustafson posted to the WaSP blog. He had a bittersweet message for a community that he had helped lead: Thanks to the hard work of countless WaSP members and supporters (like you), Tim Berners-Lee’s vision of the web as an open, accessible, and universal community is largely the reality. While there is still work to be done, the sting of the WaSP is no longer necessary. And so it is time for us to close down The Web Standards Project. If there’s just the slightest hint of wistful regret in Gustafson’s message, it’s because the Web Standards Project changed everything that had become the norm on the web during its 15+ years of service. Through dedication and developer advocacy, they hoisted the web up from a nest of browser incompatibility and meaningless markup to the standardized and feature-rich application platform most of us know today.…

One File, Many Options: Using Variable Fonts on the Web

In 2016, an important development in web typography was jointly announced by representatives from Adobe, Microsoft, Apple, and Google. Version 1.8 of the OpenType font format introduced variable fonts. With so many big names involved, it’s unsurprising that all browsers are on-board and racing ahead with implementation. Font weights can be far more than just bold and normal—most professionally designed typefaces are available in variants ranging from a thin hairline ultralight to a black extra-heavy bold. To make use of all those weights, we would need a separate file for each. While a design is unlikely to need every font-weight, a wider variety than bold and normal adds visual hierarchy and interest to a page. The Google Fonts GUI makes clear: the more weights you choose, the slower your site There’s more than various weights to consider. CSS3 introduced the font-stretch property, with values from ultra-condensed to ultra-expanded. Until now,…
