Considering how important graphics are on any website, every website developer should master the image formats available to them. As the SVG image format is becoming the format of the future, it is important to have a fair grip on what it is, how to create it, and why you should use it. Here is all you should know about it.
Google has really worked hard to make Chrome DevTools as developer-friendly as possible. So much so that the question is no longer what you can do using these developer tools built directly into Google Chrome browser. It’s now a matter of how much you know about the chrome console.
Running a successful site is a complicated business. There’s simply so much you have to take into account. Gone are the days when a good idea was enough. Now you have to take into account hosting, SEO rating, traffic flow, and much, much more. So here are some great tools to help you out.
CSS variables in pure CSS are a huge time saver. 92% of all users have browsers that support them. Using CSS variables doesn’t require any significant changes in existing stylesheets or new tools and can be easily applied to old projects. Instead of having a hex color code written down in hundreds of places in a file, you can have it defined in just one place – in a CSS variable.
If you want your emails delivered, opened, read and clicked you can’t send them from any old random server. You need a dedicated, specialized service for sending transactional emails. Like it or not, it’s a must. Those services bring a lot of benefits like advanced stats and high reliability, so they’re far from “wasted money”. We gathered 15 to see how they fare features & price wise.
We all have our little private toolboxes. A set of services, plugins, and tools we use every day. They are far from perfect, but if we use something every day it can’t be all that bad, right? This is a part of my toolbox. Nothing more than that. It’s a set of tools that save me time and money on a daily basis. Hopefully, they’ll help you too.
Installing a plugin (or theme) means that you are entirely trusting your site into the hands of their developers. There are no restrictions on what the code you’re putting on the site can do. Regardless of where you’re installing plugins from, official WP repository or some shady site, you’ll be left wondering – what changes did a plugin make to my site? Database snapshots can answer that question with ease.
Developers often underestimate the time it takes to debug something. Consequently, we are too lazy (and proud) to get a proper debugging environment going because, well, it’s a simple problem & will only take “a few minutes” to fix. This is where
console.log() comes into play. It might be dirty debugging, but it works. Years of experience have thought me a few tricks with
console that save serious amounts of time & nerves.
