Sidr for jQuery: Modern Sidebar Navigation with an Edge

Project's Homepage

We all came to love the so-called panel menu, or more correct off-canvas-menu, which saw a dramatic rise in popularity alongside the equally dramatic rise in popularity of smartphones and mobile clients in general. It’s getting hard to find one smartphone app that isn’t equipped with a navigation that slides in at swipe or tap. If my memory does not betray me, it was Facebook’s app that first made use of an off-canvas-menu. A while ago we introduced you to jPanelMenu for jQuery, with which you can create a Facebook-like experience in any app. Our newest contestant, Sidr, is even more able…

*Image Credit

It all started in late 2012 and the early part of 2013 — WordPress Foundation requested that developers who are selling their WP-related works via Envato marketplaces should not speak at, volunteer for, sponsor or organize WordCamps. Obviously, things got heated (and personal) — you don’t tell one of the biggest communities of WP developers to stay away from WordCamps and expect no reaction at all, do you? After a lot of furore and debates, Envato eventually announced a GPL-friendly policy for their marketplaces.

Unobtrusive Helper: Intro.js Guides Visitors Around Your Website

introjs1-w550

You know it. A website should be self-explanatory, navigation should be obvious. “Don’t make me think!” If you need a manual to tell your visitors how to use your website, you’re a dead man designer walking. This is generally true. But! Imagine you changed your website, but ever so slightly that your regular visitors won’t even notice. But! You want them to notice, because to you and at best also to your visitors these changes are a big deal, though not obvious.

CSS Matic – “What You See Is What You Get” for CSS Developers

Homepage

Long gone are the times where we had to code CSS entirely by hand. It’s already been a while since more and more little helpers started to get created. These little helpers usually cover one single aspect of CSS and support it with a more or less elaborate graphical UI for visual development in the likes of WYSIWYG. Today I want to introduce you to a rather new service from Spain, which comes to cover four basic missions every CSS developer has to accomplish. The service is called CSS Matic and its creators are quite known in the field of web design.
