Think you know the top web browsers?

If I had to blindly guess about global marketshare, I would have gotten it wrong. I probably would have forgotten about UC browser (kind of the point of Peter O’Shaughnessy’s article) that’s so huge in Asia. I would have guessed Firefox has a slight edge on Safari (turns out Firefox is half the share of Safari), and that Edge would be outpacing IE by now (also only half).

This is good dinner party conversation fodder, but I wouldn’t base any …

PWA Directory

The other day I was watching an interview with Ade Oshineye where he discussed his work on the PWA Directory at Google, a showcase of progressive web apps. And it’s pretty neat!

It lists a whole bunch of PWAs out there and you can filter them by Lighthouse metrics – that’s the auditing tool from Google that scores a web app and gives us developers the ability to improve them.

Now that CSS Custom Properties are a Thing, All Value Parts Can Be Changed Individually

CSS Custom Properties give us the ability to reach into a property value and change certain parts of it. That’s useful in a bunch of places, but in particular, it’s useful in properties which don’t allow us to do it any other way.

React Sketch.app

The “normal” workflow I’m sure we’ve all lived is that design happens, then coding happens. A healthy workflow has back-and-forth between everyone involved in a project, including designers and developers, but still: The code is the final product. You design your way to code, you don’t code your way to designs.

It was only a little over a month ago when it was news that Sketch 43 was moving to a .JSON file format. The final release notes drop the …

Which Projects Need React? All Of Them!

When does a project need React? That’s the question Chris Coyier addressed in a recent blog post. I’m a big fan of Chris’ writing, so I was curious to see what he had to say.

In a nutshell, Chris puts forward a series of good and bad reasons why one might want to use React (or other similar modern JavaScript libraries) on a project. Yet while I don’t disagree with his arguments, I still find myself coming to a …

A Vue.js introduction for people who know just enough jQuery to get by

Matt Rothenberg with a Vue.js tutorial playing off Shu Uesugi’s 2015 article React.js Introduction For People Who Know Just Enough jQuery To Get By. Matt doesn’t spend quite as much time comparing what building the UI component would be like in jQuery as compared to Vue as Shu did comparing with React, but it’s just as well. It’s literally the exact same UI component (a New Tweet box) as the React article, and now, 2 years later, without downplaying …
