A Front End Developer is Aware - Chris Coyier

Link to post A Front End Developer is Aware - Chris Coyier

In a general sense, the front end developer is positioned in the middle of lots of other jobs. Everybody involved in a web team ends up talking with the front end developers. That makes sense. The front end developers create the actual thing people interact with. Everything comes together with the front end developer. Perhaps…

Since its creation in 1957 by the six founding Members, the EU has gone a long and successful way.

Why Record Store Clerks Are How They Are

Link to post Why Record Store Clerks Are How They Are

You think working with clients and customers is hard? A man kept us busy for 30 minutes, trying first to find in the store, and then google “African Bandstand”. He couldn’t believe us when we told him it didn’t exist because it was, according to him, “the most popular song of all time.” After 15…


Surveying the Landscape - Peter Gasston

Link to post Surveying the Landscape - Peter Gasston

A quick recap of the threats to the web as I see them: prioritisation of apps on mobile OSes, including URL interception; destructive online advertising and tracking; ad blocking contributing to a collapse of monetisation; publishers distributing through centralised platforms; emerging markets with no legacy attachment to the web and no incentive to use it;…

Link to post Ch-ch-ch-changes

For a long time it has bugged me that the css for the recent version of my site was desktop-down. I made some adjustments for adaptive/responsive behaviour three or four years ago, but since the code base of my site is organically growing since I started it on WordPress in 2005… uhm, I think you…


Revisiting the Service Worker / Offline cache

Link to post Revisiting the Service Worker / Offline cache

Motivated by the sudden appearance of the "Add to home screen" prompt, I spent the last couple of hours to tune my Service Worker / caching behaviour: - I can now exclude parts of my site from the service worker. This was an important feature for me, since the WordPress backend didn't sit too well…


Progressive Web(rocker)App

Link to post Progressive Web(rocker)App

Ha! It! Really! Works! I have to admit I was a bit sceptical of the outcome after I tweaked and added things and bits of my website at the Indiewebcamp in Nuremberg, setting up a service worker and offline caching things, adding a manifest file … while in theory I understand what all of this…


Regressive Web Apps – Jeremy Keith

Link to post Regressive Web Apps – Jeremy Keith

[…] Looking at most of the examples of Progressive Web Apps, there’s an even more worrying trend than the return to m-dot subdomains. It looks like most of them are concentrating so hard on the “app” part that they’re forgetting about the “web” bit. That means they’re assuming that modern JavaScript is available everywhere. adactio.com…


Wrestling with the ServiceWorker

Dear js gurus in my timeline, is this the correct way to exclude urls from the power of ServiceWorkers?


Beyond Tellerrand 2016 - Matthias Ott

Link to post Beyond Tellerrand 2016 - Matthias Ott

Matthias wrote a nice summary of this year's Beyond Tellerrand Conference in Düsseldorf: […] During the four days at the IndieWebCamp and beyond tellerand, I got to know so many nice and interesting people, and enjoyed the most diverse and inspiring talks, so that I left Düsseldorf deeply satisfied and full of new ideas (although…


Putting the 'I' in Indieweb

It's about time for a write-up of the latest tweaks and developments on my site to get this note/status posting and syndicating over to twitter working, which is still a little bit messy, a mixture of plugins and self-made hacks. There's still plenty to do, but slowly it is coming together: - I am using…
