It’s good to see changes happening around. When a company becomes big, it falls into the inevitable trap of sloth (“Why touch it when it’s working just fine?”). Good to see Envato not falling prey to this.

It’s hideous. The new theme is an eyesore.

I spent my whole life restlessly searching for something to do – from being an overachieving student, to a frustrated accountant, to a failed writer, to being a confident web developer now. I’m thankful for having found my lost confidence in life :)

So, I’m building a new web application. I think it’s going to be really cool (don’t we all?) I will be launching it in a test phase in a month or two.

I was wondering if there was a way I could get some feedback, or show off the UI, or some features, even before the app goes into beta? I’m not very familiar with Dribbble, but I guess it works on similar lines? or is it just for art, and not features? What other ways would you recommend to get feedback before the app goes into beta? I have been talking to people who bought my existing form plugins, and they were quite welcoming.

PS: Here is the link if you want to register for the beta! http://ncrafts.net/blog/wp-content/plugins/formcraft/form.php?id=1

If you can have a category for .NET, you can definitely have one for Ruby / Python

I am also using Wunderlist. It’s good if the list is small. The current project I am working on is bigger, and I am using a spreadsheet, along with Wunderlist to manage the feature list / bugs / suggestions

Not sure on the reasoning, but pretty cool nonetheless. Totally agree regarding the SEO. But my actual interest was, in targetting not < body > but would be good for other divs etc that you dont want to display publically, or indeed are particularly interested if it gets any SEO benefit.

This technique is very old. Call it AJAX or JavaScript template system.

What’s most interesting about this site is that the source is almost empty and the whole content is being loaded via JS. But, once loaded into the DOM it is no more hidden and any web newbie can read it.

So my question is – Is it worth the effort?

For a site which isn’t dealing with a very dynamic DOM, JS templating is burden. But when you do have a DOM which is meant to be very dynamic (think Gmail), MVC approach, and JS templating, becomes a necessity. You can only do so much with jQuery.

It’s amazing what these new JavaScript frameworks can do. I have been playing around with AngularJS since almost a year, and each day I learn something new. The library is as big as jQuery, but seems to be endlessly deep.

I heard that some prominent Google Apps (Gmail?) are rendered purely on the front-end using JS.
