How to Import a Sass File into Every Vue Component in an App

If you’re working on a large-scale Vue application, chances are at some point you’re going to want to organize the structure of your application so that you have some globally defined variables for CSS that you can make use of in any part of your application. This can be accomplished by writing this piece of code into every component in your application: <style lang=”scss”> @import “./styles/_variables.scss”; </style> But who has time for that?! We’re programmers, let’s do this programmatically. Why? You might be wondering why we would want to do something like this, especially if you’re just starting out in web development. Globals are bad, right? Why would we need this? What even are Sass variables? If you already know all of this, then you can skip down to the next section for the implementation. Companies big and small tend to have redesigns at least every one-to-two years. If your…

Better image performance on dri.es

For a few years now I’ve been planning to add support for responsive images to my site. The past two weeks, I’ve had to take multiple trips to the West Coast of the United States; last week I traveled from Boston to San Diego and back, and this week I’m flying from Boston to San Francisco and back. I used some of that airplane time to add responsive image support to my site, and just pushed it to production from 30,000 feet in the air! When a website supports responsive images, it allows a browser to choose between different versions of an image. The browser will select the most optimal image by taking into account not only the device’s dimensions (e.g. mobile vs desktop) but also the device’s screen resolution (e.g. regular vs retina) and the browser viewport (e.g. full-screen browser or not). In theory, a browser could also factor…

The next big jump in Basecamp accessibility!

How we made the Basecamp 3 Jump Menu accessibleThe Basecamp 3 Jump MenuEarlier this year I wrote about How we stopped making excuses and started improving Basecamp’s accessibility. Accessibility improvements in Basecamp 3 have come in two ways: All new features we’ve shipped over the past year and a half have been designed and tested to meet WCAG AA guidelines (The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, or WCAG, provides a shared standard that web developers can follow to make sure their products are accessible).At the same time, we’ve gone back and retrofitted existing features and interactions for better accessibility. Today I’m excited to announce that we just completed some significant improvements to the Basecamp 3 Jump Menu!The jump menu has always been the quickest way for getting to a person, project, recently visited page, and My assignments/bookmarks/schedule /drafts/latest activity. Here’s a look at it in action:Note the small-ish “Press ⌘+J to show the menu” labelIn…

Netlify

(This is a sponsored post.)It’s always fun to watch developers discover Netlify for the first time. It’s so easy. One way to do it is to just literally drag and drop a folder onto them and it will be online. Even better, connect a Git repo to a Netlify site and tell it what branch you want to watch, then any commits to that branch will automatically go live, even running your site’s build as it does it. I heard one developer say, “It’s like someone actually designed hosting and deployment.” That lends itself nicely to static sites, but don’t think that static sites are only for certain types of sites or limiting in some way. That’s what the JAMstack is all about! Wanna learn more about that? Come to JAMstack_conf! Netlify does a ton to help you power your JAMstack site as well. They’ll process your forms. They’ll help…

Pinterest Rolls Out Max Width Promoted Videos to All Advertisers by @MattGSouthern

Pinterest is making max width promoted videos available to all advertisers following a successful beta test. Max width promoted videos are around four times the size of standard Pinterest videos, spanning the entire two-column grid. Pinterest began testing these wide-format video ads back in June with a limited number of advertisers. The test proved to be a success, with Pinterest citing increased engagement rates and more efficient costs-per-view. “In this case, bigger does mean better: we’ve seen increased engagement rates for this format as Pinners take notice of this high-impact video. During our early tests for the max. width format, […]The post Pinterest Rolls Out Max Width Promoted Videos to All Advertisers by @MattGSouthern appeared first on Search Engine Journal.

How to Give a Great Agile/Scrum Sprint Demo

Overview The Sprint Demo (often part of the Sprint Review ceremony in Agile/Scrum methodology) is a critical step in completing a sprint, an opportunity to excite stakeholders, and a chance for developers to show off their work. For presenters, however, the demo can be a stressful exercise due to a lack of confidence, structure, or practice. If you’re nervous about giving your first demo, haven’t enjoyed giving demos in the past, or you just want to get better at demoing, this post is for you! Note that I’m not going to spend much time describing what a demo is–there are plenty of other posts online about that. This post is specifically geared towards helping you give a great one. Okay, so you’ve been tapped / elected / volunteered to give a demo, what’s the first step? Start by gathering information and setting some boundary conditions for the demo. I like…
