Have you ever wanted to make a website that non-technical folks can edit right in the browser? Or have you ever wanted to make a website that presents an editable collection of items (e.g. your portfolio)? Or simply upload images to a website you made, right from the browser? Well, what if I told you, that you can do these things (and more!), just with HTML and CSS? No programming code to write, no servers to manage. You can make any element editable and saveable just by adding one HTML attribute to it. In fact, you can store your data locally in the browser, on Github, on Dropbox, or any other service just by changing an HTML attribute.The post Introducing Mavo: Create Web Apps Entirely By Writing HTML! appeared first on Smashing Magazine.
Sometimes, we all feel paralyzed. It can happen out of the blue. A few moments ago you were flooded with ideas, and the day wasn’t long enough to realize them all. But then, without a warning, nothing worked anymore. However, sometimes, it’s a silent process, enclosing you slowly but surely. Then, it becomes incredibly difficult to think of something useful and to be creative and productive. Don’t worry; there are ways to keep creativity killers under control. Read on; I’ll show you some today. 1 – The Monotony We are the sum of our experiences. In many situations, the way we think about things determines what kind of life we live. But exactly this way of thinking causes problems easily, as many people live in a total work monotony. They always sit in the same place, and always execute the same tasks. This can easily wear you down. Bring Variety to Your Life Fueling creativity and positive thoughts are pretty simple when the following things are possible: Just do things that you usually never do. Search for a different room to work in. Check the chances of working in an entirely different place. Brian Gardner, the creator of the Genesis […]

The most challenging principle of Agile is "simplicity -- the art of maximizing the amount of work not done." Developers waste immense cycles trying to avoid software failure. Rather than defining "good enough" reliability and stopping there, teams go way beyond the point of diminishing returns, building what is jokingly referred to as "gold plated" … continue reading The post SLOs: The heart of reliability practices appeared first on SD Times.

In a quick post to the Laravel News site they mention another new feature coming in the v5.7 release of the framework: the addition of the dump server for debugging output. At Laracon US 2018 Taylor Otwell announced that Laravel Dump Server would come packaged with Laravel in version 5.7! It will be a development dependency in laravel/laravel composer file. Starting in Laravel 5.7 you'll get this command out-of-the-box that allows you to dump data to the console or an HTML file instead of to the browser. The post outlines what the "dump server" provides and provides an example of the command used to start it up. You can find out more about the dump server in this previous article.
When technical performance optimizations reach certain limits, psychology and perception management might help us to push the limits further. Waiting can consist of active and passive phases; for the user to perceive a wait as a shorter one, we increase the active phase and reduce the passive phase of the wait. But what do we do when the event is a purely passive wait, with no active phase at all? Can we push the limits even further? Waits without an active phase happen quite often in the offline world: waiting in a checkout line to the till, waiting for a bus, queuing in an amusement park, and so on. It is widely accepted that the longer the user has to wait, the more negative the reaction to the wait. User reaction to a wait online is no different from that in the offline world. Studies based on the analysis of more than a thousand cases identify 14 distinct types of waiting situations on the web. Being dependent on our users' loyalty, we cannot leave them facing a passive wait.The post Why Performance Matters, Part 3: Tolerance Management appeared first on Smashing Magazine.
