I’ve started my somewhat crazy crusade of having a WYSIWYG for Snaplive that worked exactly the same on mobile and desktop (with WYSIWYG I mean something like CKEditor, Aloha, Hallo). I wrote an article on Medium explaining my rationale behind this effort, which I don’t know where it will lead.
I’m trying to solve the problems that you have on both iOS and Android—mostly caused by the tooltips and controls that these platforms add when you select text, which cover the WYSIWYG buttons for how I wanted the editor to work.
This is what I got so far: http://nbrogi.com/playground/WYSIWYG/0.1.2/demo/
I have to test it on everything, now. :-)
P.S.: I’ll also log my progress here from now on: http://nbrogi.com/etc/wysiwyg/
Get early adopters as soon as you can
To make sure you don’t just hear crickets the day you launch, the most important thing is to start a mailing list waaaay before you open your beta to the public.
The reason is obvious: you can send out an email and (some) people will go ahead and signup, so that you can start with some users.
A collection of resources for WordPress developers…
A collection of resources for PHP best practices and coding standards.
I will update this page as I find new stuff. If you have any suggestion, leave a comment!
A responsive WordPress theme with all the Twitter Bootstrap goodies.
Although not free (just $35 at the time of writing), I really like this theme. It has a lot of features, and lots of shortcodes to implement pretty much every single Bootstrap component (which is what I really like about this theme).
I think it’s great as a starter theme/base for a child theme.
Similar to my “Awesome WordPress plugins” post, this is list is just for me to keep track of dev-related technologies that I either think are awesome or I want to try out (but who knows, someone might find this useful, too).
I will add to this as stumble upon new stuff. If you have any suggestions, feel free to leave a comment!
I really don’t know where else to put this that I’d remember. I stumble upon lots of plugins on a daily basis.
These are the ones I’ve used and are awesome or I want to try out.
I will add to this list as I find more. If you have any suggestions, let me known in the comments!
A well-structured document is extremely important when creating webpages.
It can make maintenance easier, and if adding semantic meaning to it even help with search engines, as they’ll be able to better understand how your page works.
HTML5 adds a few tags for structuring documents, and making your layouts a little more semantic.
Embed your map with the new Google Maps
I had to embed a Google Maps map into a website today, and was surprised when I found out that the new Google Maps doesn’t include the ‘link’ functionality that allowed you to quickly copy and paste the code for embedding your map into your website.
Starting a step ahead
When I started, I was the cool kid who knew all the cool new stuff and technologies.
This was 2004. There was evangelism on separation of structure and presentation—which we now take for granted, there were lots of people obsessively validating their code. W3C were introducing people to their plan to force web devs to nest their tags properly, or else the page would die displaying a nasty error message (XHTML).
