Each day – new companies want to make the world a better place and try to sell you fantastic service, API, whatever. I’m constantly searching for new exciting, and valuable services which could make “my” (my clients) live easier. Everyone has a flashy website, “Try now”, “Try now for free”, “Signup for free” – fill the form, no credit card required… entry level – no trouble at all. Let’s do it.
People quite often asking me about technology stack, and where to go with next big project. The answer isn’t simple – it depends. Usually, we have couple components which are critical for the whole system. If we are talking about a web-based solution or any API we have to decide about DATABASE, then we have STORAGE, moving on – some BACKEND service language.
I’m consuming enormous amount of news each day. These is list of my findings from just only these week.
Envision.js is a library for creating fast, dynamic and interactive HTML5 visualisations.
Apy is a simple client-side library for making rest api ajax calls.
Sitespeed.io is an open source tool that helps you analyse your website speed and performance based on performance best practices and metrics. It collects data from multiple pages on your website, analyze the pages using the rules and output the result as HTML or JUnit XML.
Just introduce some new options to my quite popular library CodeIgniter-minify. From now one you can choose CSS compression engine (cssmin || minify), also FORCE rewrite CSS files. Some speed improvements were also made.
