CSS sprites is a method where you take multiple images and combine them into one single image so that you can use to reduce the number of assets that are loaded when someone visits the webpage. I don’t think that it does anything for the total download size of the images but it does reduce …Continue reading "CSS Sprites"
Previously, we looked at ways to display tabular data on a webpage. Let’s pick up where we left off, but with more data. The last time, the data was hard-coded into an array. This time, let’s use Axios to load some fake data from JSONPlaceholder. See the Pen Table Pagination – Example 1 by Joe …Continue reading "Playing with more tabular data"
So, you need to show tabular data on a webpage and make it as digestible as possible? For demo purposes, we are going to look at the top 10 most populous municipalities in Wisconsin. See the Pen Table Zebra Striping – Example 1 by Joe Steinbring (@steinbring) on CodePen. In the above example, we just …Continue reading "Playing with tabular data"
I’m not sure that this concept is universally understood. I figured that it is time to take a swing at it. According to w3schools, a block-level element always starts on a new line and takes up the full width available (stretches out to the left and right as far as it can). See the Pen …Continue reading "Block vs inline vs inline-block"
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"
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"
