As every week I collect here the best resources I have bookmarked during the last week.
- Tim Kadlec writes in Media Query & Asset Downloading Results about his research results how images are downloaded when media queries are involved. This may important if you use media queries to provide responsive websites and web application, it simply doesn’t make any sense to fetch images that won’t be show in some devices.
- Less and SASS/SCSS are well know CSS pre-processors. Least is a tool that helps you to transform old-fashioned CSS files into Less/SASS syntax. Unfortunately the tool is “only” a webservice, not a local script that could be inserted in your direct working process (e.g. merging CSS changes back to your CSS).
Places and Distributed Networks
- openMarkers describes itself as a free and community-based Google Place for travelers. You can add/search accommodations, pubs, restaurant and more, rated on prices and by other travelers. The best ten results will show up on a map. It’s great that “all places are licensed under Creative Commons BY-SA 3.0 and the code are licensed under GPL3.” It integrates with Diaspora, too.
- I found a list of Distributed Social Network projects on Wikipedia, so maybe you check them out to get your freedom back, it is always good to be vendor independent :) I will evaluate this list later in a special post. Check back regularly, or maybe subscribe to my RSS feed.
