"Background images make pages look good, but also make them slower. Each background image is an extra HTTP request. There's a fix: combine background images into a CSS sprite. But creating sprites is hard, requiring arcane knowledge and lots of trial and error. SpriteMe removes the hassles with the click of a button." #web_development #web_design #css #optimization #web_page_performance #pub

Socialite.js socialitejs.com
"Socialite provides a very easy way to implement and activate a plethora of social sharing buttons — any time you wish. On document load, on article hover, on any event! If you're selling your soul, you may as well do it asynchronously. Socialite won't cause document rendering to hang while waiting for 50kb of social media. Features and Benefits No dependencies to use. Loads external resources only when needed. Less than 5kb when minified and compressed. More accessible and styleable defaults/fallbacks. Support for Twitter, Google+, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest and Spotify. Extensible with other social networks. Mimics native implementation when activated. Supported in all browsers (providing the buttons are)." #web_development #Javascript #open_source #social_media #buttons #sharing #asynchronously #pub

"Extension to allow editing and fast reloading of local files from Chrome developer tools The idea behind Tincr is that you can save changes to your original source file from within Chrome Developer Tools. In addition, Tincr does auto-reloading of JavaScript and CSS changes made in other editors. To give you a complete illustration, let's say you're developing a Ruby on Rails web application. You would select "Ruby on Rails" in the dropdown on the Tincr panel and then select the local directory of your rails application. Once you've done that, Tincr knows enough about how a RoR application is structured that if you made a change inside of Chrome Developer Tools, it would be saved to the local file equivalent. If you made a change to an application script or stylesheet using TextMate or some other tool, the change would automatically be reloaded in Chrome without refreshing the whole page." #livereload #alternatives #css #chrome #code #web_development #real_time #pub

Vagrant www.vagrantup.com
" Configure Create a single file for your project to describe the type of machine you want, the software that needs to be installed, and the way you want to access the machine. Store this file with your project code. Work Run a single command — "vagrant up" — and sit back as Vagrant puts together your complete development environment. Say goodbye to the "works on my machine" excuse as Vagrant creates identical development environments for everyone on your team." #from:Windows_Phone #web_development #automation #cross_platform #software #pub

"Backbone and Ember Picking a client side MVC framework isn't easy, and seeing a trivial Todo app just doesn't show how much these frameworks bring to the table. In this workshop, we'll dive into two popular frameworks: Backbone.js and Ember. We'll cover the features of each framework and dig in with code examples and labs that give you a solid understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of each. After completing this workshop, you should be armed to the teeth with the knowledge you need to pick the best framework for your next rich client web app." #paid #monthly #javascript #backbone #ember #courses #videos #lectures #price:$100 #web_development #pub
