10 Essential Rules for UI Design

Design never really used to matter all that much. It’s hard to imagine now, but before Apple’s meteoric rise to global popularity, design usually took a backseat to functionality. Today, design has become a world onto itself, and the community of designers and developers have united to develop a coherent set of rules for the […]

Solving the Last Item Problem for a Circular Distribution with Partially Overlapping Items

Let’s say we wanted to have something like this:

Clockwise circular (cyclic) distribution with partially overlapping items.

At first, this doesn’t seem too complicated. We start with 12 numbered items:

- 12.times do |i|
.item #{i}

We give these items dimensions, position them absolutely in the middle of their container, give them a background, a box-shadow (or a border) and tweak the text-related properties a bit so that everything looks nice.

$d: 2em;

.item {
position: absolute;
margin:

User Facing State

Let’s talk about state. Communicating state to the user that is, not application stores state in JavaScript objects, or localStorage.

We’re not going to be using inline styles, or, as much as can be helped, class selectors, for reasons that will …

Announcing JSON Feed

Manton Reece and Brent Simmons have just published their thoughts on JSON Feed which is a new standard for making a feed, like a collection of blog posts. The format itself is similar to RSS and Atom but since it’s in JSON it’s easier to read and a lot more familiar to developers:

5 Ways to Use 404 Pages Well

Let’s face it, it’s happened to all of us. We clicked a link on social media or on a website to be taken to another website to see some content that we were interested in.

Web Hosting with Media Temple

I find Media Temple to be a perfect fit for a mostly-front-end person like me. I’m not an idiot, I’m pretty experienced with web work, but I don’t really wanna be in charge of setting up and configuring a server. That’s a specialized set of knowledge that I think is well suited to the people that own, sell, and support servers. (I think that would be a pretty good career choice, FWIW, kids.) That’s what Media Temple does in spades. …
