While Responsive design is becoming more and more popular here is yet another great Responsive Grid system, Similar to the Less Framework.
Definitely worth taking a look at, I think responsive web design is a great solution to a wide audience on a budget. While it’s not perfect it does offer some advantages to specifically designing for specific devices.
Use multiple text-shadows to create 3D text on any HTML element.
No extra HTML, no extra headaches, just awesomesauce.
I have been using a small PHP MVC Framework called Dingo Framework.
Dingo is a Rapid Development Application Framework written in PHP by Evan Byrme. Dingo allows you to create dynamic changing websites easily and quickly.
Dingo is a relatively new full featured framework at a compact size of 70KB, It supports Fancy URL’s, Access Control List, User Authentication, ORM, and simple no SQL database interaction.
Dingo is very easy to leverage, adding 3rd parties libraries is dead easy. The configuration is simple with support for multiple database connections, auto load libraries and helpers.
Try the Dingo TextMate Bundle!
I had the pleasure of moving a client website from GoDaddy to Dreamhost. I wont get into the reasons why the site was moved but Did have a few problems getting the WordPress site working again.
I would get an error much like this “No input file”
After confirming that everything was configured correctly I took a look at the .htaccess file and saw these two lines at the top.
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .php
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .php4
That is something that Godaddys servers placed in the files to allow them to run both PHP4 and PHP5.
Delete them, save the .htaccess file and everything should work perfectly.
A while back Aptana, an open source development tool announced out of the blue that it would be dropping its core PHP support in favor of using the Eclipse PDT plugin. Something a lot of people including my self was upset with. Many of us use Aptana because we didn’t like the Eclipse plugin.
Aptana was then to contribute many of its features to the Eclipse project but development and cycles were just to slow.
Enter Aptana 3. This version of Aptana has been rewritten from the ground up. Including great FTP, Version support for GIT and SVN, IDE customizations. Aptana is still strongly pushing Ruby on Rails but has brought back core support for PHP.
As it evolves its nice to see the progress with code templates, code library’s, and I hope a great data explorer tool.
Take a look and try the beta.
This has been one of my favorite finds this year, I was able to use it on my portfolio as well as the Vision Creative site. The reason it was so attractive over some other jQuery options was its ease of use and its flexibility.
Gilbert Pellegrom made the script easy to use, adapt, customize, and style. Its documentation is straight to the point and applicable.
