Shepherd is a javascript library for guiding users through your app. It uses Tether, another open source library, to position all of its steps.

We should always try to make our apps as self-explaining as possible, but sometimes features need to be showcased or explained. This helps you to do a quick first-start guide for new users.

Nice simple addon to add a loading animation to your Bootstrap buttons, when doing Ajax requests. Always better to let users know, that your system is doing something ;)

Just a couple of links that deal with the usage or testing of structured data.

Structured data is not yet relevant for content rankings, but that might change in the future (Hangout).

“Structured data markup” is a standard way to annotate your content so machines  can understand and categorize it. Proper usage elevates the way data is displayed on Google Search, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and many others, when one of your content links is posted there.

INTEGRATION

TESTING

Really looking forward to the JSON-LD integration :)

My Javascript Stack

Some time ago I said: “My perfect framework, is a set of solid singular solutions that have proven themselves over the years. Working solo or together in harmony”.

Here is a list of some of my core components, that I use in combination or standalone.

CORE

LAYOUT

TEMPLATING

OBSERVABLES

ROUTER

STORAGE

DEPENDENCY MANAGER

  • RequireJS  – requirejs.org

    jQuery Tweak: If you have already loaded jQuery before RequireJS, you can not use define([“jquery”], …) in your module defines. Add this to your main RequireJS config before doing anything else …

    NOW you can live happily ever after :)

  • OR
  • Loadrunner – github.com/danwrong/loadrunner

This is basically the core stack that I use to build out ideas :) While Angular is always an option, the above satisfies most of all needs and is often far slimmer. The rest depends on how you organize your code yourself, but at least you are not forced into fixed structures ;)
