Last week, we looked at string concatenation and I figured that this week, we could see what you could actually do with it. Back in 2014, I used a calculator to play around with PhoneGap. It might be time to play with the concept again. See the Pen Vue.js Calculator – v1 by Joe Steinbring …Continue reading "More fun with string concatenation"
One of the goals for JWS.app was for it to pull in activity from a bunch of sources and update itself. That is the reason why I created the “superfeed”. Let’s start by looking at its current state. See the Pen JWS.app – Superfeed (Before) by Joe Steinbring (@steinbring) on CodePen. Getting the content from …Continue reading "Fixing JWS.app: The “Superfeed” (Part 1)"
I have never been fond of the footer on JWS.app but I’ve been unsure what to use, there. After addressing the elements at the top of the page, it makes sense to turn our attention to the very bottom of the page. Considering how much we have leveraged Bulma so far, it also makes sense …Continue reading "Fixing JWS.app: Turning our attention to the footer"
This is going to be a quick (out-of-band) post but if you’ve been wondering how to get that new fanciness in your github profiles, it is pretty easy. You just create a new repo with the same name as your username and “Initialize this repository with a README”. Voila!Continue reading "How do you get that new fanciness in your Github profile?"
Previously, we have looked at the navigation bar, the hero image, and the combination of the two. I figured that next natural step is to look at how to style the content on the page. I want to add some sort of visually pleasing container and Bulma‘s box class seems to be a good option. …Continue reading "Fixing JWS.app: Styling the content on the page"
Previously, we looked at using Bulma to improve the nav bar and we looked at ways we could improve the hero image. I figured that this week, we would combine the two. See the Pen JWS.app – Hero with Nav by Joe Steinbring (@steinbring) on CodePen. I kind of like this look but the nav …Continue reading "Fixing JWS.app: What if we merged the nav bar with the hero image?"
Last week, we looked at more ways to tweak the nav bar on JWS.app. This week, I figured that we would move down to the hero image. The current hero image is dynamically generated based upon a subset of images on photos.jws.app. It doesn’t look great, though. See the Pen JWS.app – Hero (Before) by Joe Steinbring …Continue reading "Fixing JWS.app: The Hero Image"
This year has caused a lot of plans to go out the window. You can’t travel, go to school (in person), or even grab a beer at the neighborhood bar. As we always do, we find a way though. Two of the conferences that I have really enjoyed in the past are going online, this …Continue reading "Two really promising upcoming “pay what you want” online conferences"
Last week, we looked at two ways to fix the nav on JWS.app. For the first option, we simply added an additional header that displays when the screen width gets narrow enough. For the second option, we introduced a hamburger menu. This week, let’s look at two new options. The first of this week’s options …Continue reading "Fixing JWS.app: The Nav Bar (Part 2)"
