Web Roundup - 02/10

A bunch of things, not really classified this time :

On Javascript side :

On tools side :

  • Google just released a new WYSIWYG authoring tool called Web Designer ; so far I always remained far away from such tools (remember  Dreamweaver in the early 2000s ?), but first feedback seems positive so far. Even Mozilla evangelist Christian Heilman is positive about it.
  • If you are a Raspberry Pi owner, you can also have a look at another Google's project called "coder". It aims to make you learn about web development.
  • The top 25 (responsive) design tools : a bunch of tools to ease the way you will build your site, not all are about responsive and can be used for "traditional" needs or not only for responsive designs.
  • Telize is a JSON IP and GeoIP REST API for IP Geolocation : This service offers a REST API allowing to get a visitor IP address and to query location information from any IP address. It outputs JSON-encoded IP geolocation data, and supports both JSON and JSONP.
  • Jq, a lightweight and flexible command-line JSON processor.

On HTML/CSS side

On tests side :

  • Test first : you could sum up the article with You should write tests. You should write tests first. You should write clean tests first! and test are specs (as in the RSpecs language where tests can be read as a specification)

On webperf side :

One day I hope I'll have enough time to write about AngularJS, Web Components Grunt/Yeoman and ElasticSearch, which I find promising and interesting, but need some time to dive in.
