I am currently building a custom slides / template builder for a project, with a lot of moving parts and dynamic logic.
As there are repeating patterns within the slides, each pattern and its logic needs to be neatly separated. As the slides can be reordered and dropzones can be changed, I need to make sure logic doesn’t break and IDs get updated.
Before reassembling all templates, I am making sure that IDs match the slide and dropzone using a preg_replace_callback
One of the patterns is a simple tab setup, each has its unique ID defined like vl-tab_U1_S1_D1.
The function below passes the found matches through to the anonymous callback function in preg_replace_callback and offers outside data to the function using use($foo). The $dropzone object holds the current unit, slide and dropzone of the pattern, which can be used to replace the current ID with the correct one.
With Chrome 56, web apps can now communicate with nearby Bluetooth Low Energy devices using the Web Bluetooth API, position sticky is back – making it easy to create elements that scroll normally until sticking to the top of the viewport. And HTML5 by Default is enabled for all users.
Chrome 56 on iOS also adds the ability to scan QR codes directly within Chrome. So many thought QR-Codes were dead, well not so much !
Paw is a full-featured HTTP client that lets you test the APIs you build or consume. It has a beautiful native OS X interface to compose requests, inspect server responses and generate client code out-of-the-box.
This is one of my go-to tools, when test-driving my API endpoints.
