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.

Bury the lede

How can we keep people interested?Technology doesn’t always give us the highest quality outcome. Sometimes it just buys us more convenience.Look at coffee. It used to be a pain to prepare and drink. Then in 1850 Folgers started roasting and grinding it for us. It wasn’t as fresh, but it sure was fast.Or look at photography. Today, smartphones put everything from supercomputers to cameras into our pocket. But the pictures pale in comparison to what my 5lb DSLR can take.But we compromise. Sometimes convenience wins. Writing made a similar compromise.The telegraph was a huge improvement in communication compared to smoke signals. We could now transmit messages over long distances.But man, were those early messages expensive. A trained operator needed to type each letter by hand. And so compromises were made to shorten and change the message. For example, when the Wright Brothers completed their first flight, they couldn’t gush to their parents.…

Deploying ES2015+ Code in Production Today

Philip Walton suggests making two copies of your production JavaScript. Easy enough to do with a Babel-based build process. <!– Browsers with ES module support load this file. –> <script type=”module” src=”main.js”></script> <!– Older browsers load this file (and module-supporting –> <!– browsers know *not* to load this file). –> <script nomodule src=”main-legacy.js”></script> He put together a demo project for it all and you’re looking at 50% file size savings. I would think there would be other speed improvements as well, by using modern JavaScript methods directly.

The Key to Building Large JavaScript Apps: The Modlet Workflow

You’re a developer working on a “large JavaScript application” and you’ve noticed some issues on your project. New team members struggle to find where everything is located. Debugging issues is difficult when you have to load the entire app to test one component. There aren’t clean API boundaries between your components, so their implementation details bleed one into the next. Updating your dependencies seems like a scary task, so your app doesn’t take advantage of the latest upgrades available to you. One of the key realizations we made at Bitovi was that “the secret to building large apps is to never build large apps.” When you break your app into smaller components, you can more easily test them and assemble them into your larger app. We follow what we call the “modlet” workflow, which promotes building each of your components as their own mini apps, with their own demos, documentation,…

Chrome to force .dev domains to HTTPS via preloaded HSTS

Mattias Geniar: A lot of (web) developers use a local .dev TLD for their own development. … In those cases, if you browse to, you’ll be redirect[ed] to, the HTTPS variant. That means your local development machine needs to; Be able to serve HTTPs Have self-signed certificates in place to handle that Have that self-signed certificate added to your local trust store (you can’t dismiss self-signed certificates with HSTS, they need to be ‘trusted’ by your computer) This is probably generally A Good Thing™, but it is a little obnoxious to be forced into it on Chrome. They knew exactly what they were doing when they snatched up the .dev TLD. Isn’t HSTS based on the entire domain though, not just the TLD?

Dropdown Menus in Drupal 8 with the Superfish Module

If you want to build a large, multi-level drop-down menu in Drupal 8, then the Superfish module is a great choice.

React + Dataviz

There is a natural connection between Data Visualization (dataviz) and SVG. SVG is a graphics format based on geometry and geometry is exactly what is needed to visually display data in compelling and accurate ways. SVG has got the “visualization” part, but SVG is more declarative than programmatic. To write code that digests data and turns it into SVG visualizations, that’s well suited for JavaScript. Typically, that means D3.js (“Data-Driven Documents”), which is great at pairing data and SVG. You know what else is good at dealing with data? React. The data that powers dataviz is commonly JSON, and “state” in React is JSON. Feed that JSON data to React component as state, and it will have access to all of it as it renders, and notably, will re-render when that state changes. React + D3 + SVG = Pretty good for dataviz I think that idea has been in…

A Rube Goldberg Machine

Ada Rose Edwards takes a look at some of the newer browser APIs and how they fit together: These new APIs are powerful individually but also they complement each other beautifully, CSS custom properties being the common thread which goes through them all as it is a low level change to CSS. The post itself is a showcase to them. Speaking of new browser APIs, that was a whole subject on ShopTalk a few weeks back.

Basic grid layout with fallbacks using feature queries

I often see a lot of questions from folks asking about fallbacks in CSS Grid and how we can design for browsers that just don’t support these new-fangled techniques yet. But from now on I’ll be sending them this post by HJ Chen. It digs into how we can use @supports and how we ought to ensure that our layouts don’t break in any browser.
