As you may have read a while ago,
position: sticky landed in WebKit. Now, the latest news is that Firefox Nightly supports sticky positioning too and that’s definitely good news!
I found this two years old Dribbble shot by Ignacio Giri. Don’t ask me how, I just don’t remember how did I stumble upon it but one thing is clear: I bookmarked this dropdown menu concept, stared at it a bit and then I thought about making something similar with CSS.
Customizing form elements was always pretty frustrating and the select element is one of those elements who can make you want to pull your remaining hair out while trying to style it. As you may already know, when talking about its customization, there isn’t too much CSS stuff you can apply to it, just properties like color, background, font or border.
In this article, in order to customize the look of the native HTML dropdown select, we’ll be using a different approach based on some cutting edge techniques like
Last month I wrote about my thoughts on becoming a better developer and not only. This time, to help you join the best design community, I have two Dribbble invites for you.
According to DOM level 4 specs, which is the current version in development, there are some new handy mutation methods available:
I ask myself this question quite often. What it takes to become a better developer? Not a ninja, guru, master or whatever, but just a better developer. I’m talking about how to improve and learn more every day.
The other day I read a good article on horizontal centering by Roger Johansson in where he explains the shrinkwrapping effect. Basically, it’s about one of the most common problems you can find in the wild, namely how to center a navigation bar which contains floated elements with undefined widths.
As we all know, centering this kind of stuff can be quite tricky sometimes. With this common example in mind, Roger made an awesome list with solutions you can apply in order to achieve horizontal centering.
CSS 3D transforms are just awesome. I’ve seen before some cool and inspiring implementations in the wild and still I can’t believe I didn’t had the chance to write an article on this topic ‘til now.
So, what’s the idea for this article? Let’s say you own a blog, I was thinking about having a nice looking 3D folding list that contains the main social buttons and when people reach at the end of an article, the initial folded list would smoothly unfold. This could be helpful if you want to draw users’ attention, something like: “Hey, did you like my article? Connect with me!”.
