Do you want simply import/include HTML blocks on a page? Here is the directive Follow the link
From now it supports custom types (union/complex) declared in the fashion of @typedef JSDoc tag. Follow the link
Apparently social networking is the banner of the nowadays web. Everybody intends bringing some features into his projects. Some of them require immediate notification. That is getting common, if you open a page with upcoming messages (status feed, notification subsystem, friends-list), you expected them being updated as soon as a new message (status, notification, friend-making action) arrives. As you well know, original web design allowed only one-way client-server communication (one requests, another one responds), though now HTML5 working group doing their best to fix it or rather to patch it. However, the web-projects are still using long-polling trick to emulate server-client communication.
Well, now new web browser versions appear every few months. Besides they update automatically. Thus a huge number of users have the latest browser versions, which support HTML 5 communication APIs. Is that the time to put long-polling away? Let’s find out.
I anticipate Google to swallow Review Services market using G+. I hate the idea of somebody having total control on everything, but when I buy a product (any product), I see number of variations from different producers. I want to read some reviews, to see some ratings on products and their producers before picking one. That’s natural. Where to get those? On the site of producer/seller? Oh, please! I would rather not trust them entirely. Well, I could try to search on www.consumersearch.com or try www.epinions.com, though I would hardly find many of the products sold in Germany and the reviews by the locals. I’ll tell you what, I’m going to end up extracting reviews on public forums and likely giving up after hours spent in vain. However, I can use Google Products (www.google.com/products) and find everything in the place. I may even make a photo of the product right on the shelf of the store and try googling by the picture.
Enabling your videos for iPhone Safari doesn’t seem as a big deal. You know it supports HTML5 . Besides, you don’t even need to write event handlers and produce a skin by yourself, but only take a ready JS component. Apparently videojs.com is getting close to be the most popular one. Though, I personally like mediaelementjs.com. It is very simple to use any of them. The only difficulty is to get your videos converted to h.264, Theora Ogg and WebM. When two last ones are meant for desktop browsers Chrome/Opera/Firefox/EI9, the first is for mobile devices. And here we go, using a converter (e.g. E.M. Video Converter) we are getting .mp4 which looks pretty ok on iPad, but iPhone refuses even to try playing.
Working with Drupal for half of year and constantly tuning it for better maintainability, code consistency I came to the idea – Drupal is going to be a toy, a pretty popular but only toy, unless they decide to rewrite everything from the scratch. Studying Drupal 7 I find the CMS wasn’t really refactored. They dramatically improved administrator panel, included CCK/ImageCache into the core, added file handlers and Unit-test framework. However it’s still a mess of coding styles and approaches. You can enter any module folder and you’ll find bunch files with no concern separation. View components, business logic, helpers, domain entities – all can be met in the same file. I understand that laying strict requirements on modules would affect the army of contributors. But anyway with Drupal 7 all the modules must be rewritten. Maybe the committee just can’t agree on a structuring strategy. As for me, it must be like that.
I’ve already described an approach of using MVC in Drupal . It wasn’t bad for the beginning I hope. Though in real life you face requirements which hardly can be fulfilled with such a simplicity. In, more or less, complex application you ain’t going to be satisfied by the only controller (page controller) to serve the whole bunch of components presented on the page. So, let’s assume we have a page full of components and each of them can behave differently. It means we need controllers and views for them. Reminds of Java portlets, doesn’t it? Such components are often referred as modules in IA, but I don’t dare to call them so in this context to avoid any confusion because of Drupal modules. So, let’s go with widgets.
Let’s assume you have installed phpBB3 to run forums on the web-project you are working on. The forum system was re-skinned and your project manager, seems, is pretty happy for the first. But later he requests some changes, e.g. to prevent users from sending emails to each other within the board. This one is easy; you can disable it globally via ACP. However, the project manager wants only registered users not be able sending emails, when administrators and global moderators are still able to do it. Again, it is not a problem, because phpBB3 provides permissions roles which can be assigned to user groups. So, you go to ACP and create and a new role, e.g. ProjectX Registered User Features, based on existing one (All Features). Now you can set false ‘Can send e-mails’ option of Misc tab in User permissions panel and apply this role for all the registered users. Everything is fine so far, but only until the project manager requests something like ‘user search form in UCP has to be removed for unprivileged users’. You cannot find this feature in role options. We need custom option for user roles.
If you ought to build a new site and don’t have time to develop a CMS, you’ll likely take an open source solution. And likely it will be Joomla or Drupal. They seem as most popular. Actually they are similar in many ways. Both provide basic content management frameworks, extensible through plug-ins and customizable via themes. Both focused on block-designed sites which can be often built without any programming at all, just using downloaded theme and configurable set of extensions. So it’s personal what to choose. I prefer Drupal. Its component model seems clearer to me. The documentation is much more explicit then Joomla’s and gallery of ready-to-use modules is really impressive.
If you work with Zend Framework, you likely tried ZF Console (Zend_Tool on command line). But have you tried to extend it? Why? To have common interface for all your Cli-scripts related to ZF-base project. How do you find the idea to program Cli-scripts in MVC? Zend Framework provides us with the tool to do it.
Besides, already noted bidirectional communication channel, known as WebSocket, HTML5 propositions include also comet communication pattern by defining Server-Sent Events (SSE). WebSocket widely discussed by now, tons of server implementations are available and you can play already with fluent browser implementation under Chrome. However the second server-push technology of HTML5 yet stays in shadow.

In summer 2001 I had been offered to develop an electronic publications system MyPRESS.
It is a universal program complex which includes all basic functions of content control systems and allows creating and leading periodic WEB based editions. Sites management system MySITE has been created on MyPRESS basis in autumn.
ngBackbone is a small extension of Backbone.js that unlocks Angular-like programming experience
Well, I love old good Backbone for its simplicity and flexibility. However after working with such frameworks as Angular and React, I see that Backbone app requires much more code. Yet I don't want to ditch Backbone and deal with some 20K LOC framework codebase. I just want a minimal modular extension that will improve my programming experience and maintainability of my code. And that is how I came up with ngBackbone
Aspect-oriented programming suggests separating cross-cutting concerns (logging, caching, monitoring, data validation, error detection and so on) from main business logic. In brief it introduces:
advice - code implementing cross-cutting concerns
pointcut - when code where in your main code advices shall be applied
NgAspect provides decorators @Before and @After that allow to bind an advice to a pointcut e.g. @Before( Class/Constructor, "methodName" ) or @Before([ [Class/Constructor, "methodName"], [Class/Constructor, "methodName"] ]). It also exports @Pointcut decorator that points out what method can be supplied with advices.
A function for asynchronous loading of non-critical CSS and deferring Web Fonts, which leverages localStorage for caching. When a new version of file supplied (app.css?v2) any old versions (app.css?xx) are being removed from localStorage automatically
Pragmatic CSS is guidelines for writing scalable and maintainable style-sheets. PCSS divides the whole UI into portable and reusable components. Every component is described in a separate CSS (SASS/LESS/etc) module. PCSS's naming convention makes it easier to locate a module corresponding to a problem and encourages developer on producing optimized object-oriented CSS.
This bookmarklet provides a controllable overlay with an image of page graphical design over top of the developed HTML. In fact it is similar to the well-know Pixel Perfect Firefox extension, which doesn't work properly with last Firefox builds for a while.
Page navigation using touch gestures on mobile devices
Usually we hide all auxiliary page components on mobile to save space of the viewing area. So we have to provide in return alternative navigation tool out of the screen. Since keyboard with navigation keys isn't available, we can use touch gestures.
