Web Design Weekly #105

Smashing Magazine turns 7! So much talk about progressive enhancement this week I decided to only feature one, but a goodie. Jay Denseric goes into details about using Sass and font icons. Laura Kalbag writes about working with clients. I blogged about writing a better git commit and lots more. Enjoy!

Web Design Weekly #104

Hello Yeoman 1.0! Congrats to all involved. Jason Grigsby took a re-look at responsive design and explained at why it is solid gold. Jeremy Keith dived deep into the double tab delay. Seth Vincent looked at choosing between NPM, Bower or Component. Enjoy!

A Better Git Commit

I am a bad committer, there is no lying. Since learning Git in my final years of University, I managed to pick up a few bad habits, which have been with me ever since. When you do something everyday it’s easy to forget that there might be a better way.

Over the last few years the number of detailed commits I have made could be counted on one hand. Quite disgraceful really.

Web Design Weekly #103

So the WDW store is now open. Hope over a grab yourself some goodies. In other news Mat Marquis gives a run down on what we need to know as developers with the new srcset that landed in WebKit. Addy Osmani and Paul Kinlan demo a new experimental bookmarklet for detecting critical CSS for above the fold content. Bootstrap 3 was released. A new WordPress podcast called Applyfilters was released and loads more. Enjoy!

Sublime Text Settings I Use

It’s always interesting to find out how people set up their coding environment. To be honest I don’t think I’ll ever get the perfect setup but what I currently have does a pretty good job.

Tweaking your Sublime Text settings is relatively easy but can be a little daunting if you are fan of a GUI. Within Sublime all settings are handle by a simple JSON file. They can be found either from under the Sublime Text menu (Sublime Text 2 -> Preferences -> Settings – User) or by the shortcut (Command + .).

One Hundred

Sitting in a little co-working space and pushing “send” on the first Web Design Weekly was a long time ago. 2 years, 1 month and 1 day to be exact. I had no idea what I was getting myself into.

Lots of late Thursday nights frantically compiling. Crazy amounts or scanning feeds, tweets and emails. Lots of early Friday mornings proof-reading. All usually after crazy hectic days at work. Quite often I have even put off heading to the climbing gym or skipping on a run so I can get the newsletter out. I don’t really like this part. It’s self induced, but I care about WDW. It’s kinda crazy how little side projects can do that to you.

An interesting new tool by the talented Macaw team. Bower 1.0 was released. Harry Roberts smashed out a great post about making whatever you do count. Chris Coyier dived into the performance of Flexbox. Raymond Camden walks thorough the installation of Express and so much more. Big week next week!
