Announcing Node.js on Acquia Cloud

Today, Acquia announced that it expanded Acquia Cloud to support Node.js, the popular open-source JavaScript runtime. This is a big milestone for Acquia as it is the first time we have extended our cloud beyond Drupal. I wanted to take some time to explain the evolution of Acquia’s open-source stack and why this shift is important for our customers’ success. From client-side JavaScript to server-side JavaScript JavaScript was created at Netscape in 1995, when Brendan Eich wrote the first version of JavaScript in just 10 days. It took around 10 years for JavaScript to reach enterprise maturity, however. Adoption accelerated in 2004 when Google used JavaScript to build the first release of Gmail. In comparison to e-mail competitors like Yahoo! Mail and Hotmail, Gmail showed what was possible with client-side JavaScript, which enables developers to update pages dynamically and reduces full-page refreshes and round trips to the server. The benefit…

Your Trackpad Can Do More

For those who make a living on the computer, aspiring to be a power user is a no-brainer. We tend to associate that term with things like keyboard shortcuts, and, at Viget, we unsurprisingly are huge fans of incorporating them into our workflow to speed things up. Seriously. We’ve written about it a lot. Keyboard shortcuts are undeniably important, but they’re not our only option to boost efficiency. What about when your hands aren’t on the keys? If you’re using your right hand to scroll down this page right now, what would be the quickest way to switch tabs? If that hand is resting on a trackpad, the answer should be obvious — yet, inexplicably, we’ve been conditioned to think of that magical rectangle as capable of just a select few actions. Let’s change that. BetterTouchTool is an inexpensive macOS menu bar app from Andreas Hegenberg that allows you to…

Design Tooling is Still Figuring Itself Out

It probably always will be, to be fair. At the moment, there are all kinds of things that design software is struggling to address. The term “screen design” is common, referring to the fact that many of us are designing very specifically for screens, not print or any other application and screens have challenges unique to them. We have different workflows these days than in the past. We have different collaboration needs. We have different technological and economic needs. Let’s take a peak at all this weirdness. Design tooling is still figuring out Responsive Design It’s almost taken for granted these days that any given new web project (or redesign) will be responsive design. Responsive design is the answer for screens of different sizes and different capabilities. So we can’t just design a 1280px wide version and call it a day. Software like Sketch has made multiple artboards of arbitrary…

HTML Templates via JavaScript Template Literals

You know those super cool backticks-for-strings in new JavaScript? let emotion = `happy`; let sentence = `Chris is feeling ${emotion}`; Besides the variable interpolation in there being mighty handy, the do multi-line strings wonderfully, making them great for chunks of HTML: const some_html = ` <div class=”module> <h2>${data.title}</h2> <p>${data.content}</p> </div> `; That doesn’t look overly different than JSX does it?! Maybe we’d do something like that as a React component: class MyModule extends React.Component { render() { return <div class=”module> <h2>{this.props.title}</h2> <p>{this.props.content}</p> </div>; } } But what if we don’t really need React, or any other fairly-large-ish JavaScript framework? What if the only thing we want is the ability to render HTML templates and also really efficiently re-render them when we need to, like React is known for? As far as I understand it, that’s what projects like lit-html are for. As I write, it’s a pretty new library from…

Cloud Storage as a CDN Option

Inspired Magazine Inspired Magazine – creativity & inspiration daily If you have a slow site, probably on shared server that receives a lot of traffic, you may be able to speed things up a bit by hosting some of your content on a Content Delivery Network (CDN). Unfortunately traditional CDN is often priced out of reach for a small business website, but the good news is there is a way to set up cloud storage drives to act as your own personal CDN systems. In this article we’ll discover some methods for doing that. Cloud storage CDN emulation vs pure CDN The main difference is cost and volume. Pure CDN usually works out cheaper for high traffic volumes and more expensive for low traffic volumes. Because a typical small business isn’t likely to see the kind of traffic that would make pure CDN worth it, emulating CDN functionality with cloud…

Copywriting Q&A: Why Do I See Copywriters Willing to Work for Peanuts?

Start a Google search for copywriting jobs, and it won’t be long before you uncover copywriters willing to work for bargain basement rates. But instead of letting that discourage you, it should encourage you — and help you realize how littlereal competition you have. Curious? Read on… Today’s question comes from Mike M., who writes, “Looking at job boards recently there are many writers willing to work for what I would consider ‘peanuts’. Why is this?” The first thing to understand before I answer this question is that anyone can call themselves a copywriter. And, in fact, that’s what plenty of would-be copywriters do. One day, a person who likes to write decides that he’d like a career in copywriting, starts calling himself a copywriter, and starts trying to get work. But the fatal flaw in that is that calling oneself a copywriter doesn’t equate to knowing how to write…
