These days I had the opportunity to test PhoneGap, an open source framework for creating native mobile apps with web standards. So, first things came to mind when you think about HTML5, is that even if mobile browsers are very fast to implement new features, you cannot truly count on “standards” but on “drafts”. The [...]
I’m going to write some premise-posts to my recent experience with a native app for iPhone wrapped with PhoneGap. Before to reach that point, I would like to focus on how, in certain circumstances (E.g., mobile development), there is no need to include heavy libraries like jQuery, causing often poor performance especially on less recent [...]
MooTools Quick DemojQuery Quick Demo Common design patterns about Placeholder hide labels on focus event, so when user select the input box. Another technique hides the label after user’s focus, precisely it does on first letter typed (it’s the case of new twitter welcome-page).

This has been one of my first plugin; so I think it’s a good practice, as a developer grows, to put some of this experience gained in his older (but still actual) projects in order to enhance code and overall quality. Here’s [...]
Italian version The answer I would like to had some time ago. Less than a year ago, coming from front-end development and classical PHP approach, I asked – on a related discussion on FriendFeed – the reasons and gains taken from using a development framework.

In un esempio recente su questo blog ho mostrato come ottenere un’effetto slide verticale (simulando un’illusione di movimento grazie ad alcune immagini ad-hoc). Qualcuno mi chiede se è possibile realizzarlo anche con un’interpolazione orizzontale: niente di più facile, MooTools mette a disposizione delle classi che facilitano il lavoro (Fx.Slide, invece del semplice tween utilizzato nell’esempio [...]
