“WebP is an image format employing both lossy and lossless compression. It is currently developed by Google, based on technology acquired with the purchase of On2 Technologies.” – Wikipedia

As the WebP is not widely supported, you need to use polyfills or workarounds to actually use it. But it makes a lot of sense when you are building image heavy applications for the web. It decreases file-sizes immensely and supports transparency as PNG does.

To allow WebP upload in WordPress, add this to your functions.php:

Browsers with native support will show WebP images natively, for browsers without support deploy WebPJS developed by Google. Download and add it to your theme functions.php

This should do the trick and enable WebP for all modern browsers, see browser support on the WebPJS development page.

Here another little nice trick to check for WebP using Javascript and replace webp with png images.

Enjoy

Adding audio to a web project can be really a pain in the …. . Howler.js makes it almost painless to add audio for desktop or mobile solutions.

Just used the audio sprite feature in one of my projects to allow switching between sounds. Works perfectly on iOS after the first touch event.

Visual Composer for WordPress provides many ways to extend its functionality. There are already many add-ons available for this dynamic page builder, but its easy to do the extending yourself,  by following the hints in the documentation ;)

In this small tutorial we are adding a “type” field to allow a special css class to be added to each of our row containers.

New Visual Composer element properties can be easily added by using the vc_add_param function. See documentation for more information. In our case we are adding a property to the vc_row element.

IN A PERFECT WORLD

In a perfect world all current browsers would allow the usage of WebRTC natively, but that is as always not the case ;)

WHAT IS WEBRTC ?

“WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communication) is an API definition drafted by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) that supports browser-to-browser applications for voice calling, video chat, and P2P file sharing without the need of either internal or external plugins.” – Wikipedia
