Servus (this is how you greet people in Bavaria, Germany),
I welcome you to the fifth issue of the Web Dev Reading List. Hope you enjoy this week's issue with again a lot of new things that might be interesting for you.
At least take away what Oli wrote today on ThePastryBox Project:
"The web is not TV, or print design, or any of the things that have come before. It is what it is. And we’re still collectively figuring it out."
- Jake shows how to animate line-drawings within SVG
- Chris Heilmann tested the Leap Motion to handle accessibility in a cool way.
- Brian Grinstead published his Chrome DevTool snippets.
- WebKit now supports srcset!
- Search and Find all SublimeText packages.
- Collaboration platforms for Writers seem to be the new 'hot shit'. Quip is the newest but I also can recommend Editorially. But anyway they are different in handling so check out both to find our personal tool.
- Jamie Mason's Image Optimization Table is back. In the last WDRL you probably found this link broken because he removed the data to improve it. Now it's even better data you should have a look at.
- Optimize images losslessly with grunt and imageoptim-cli. A how-to.
- Sencha published an huge article on myths about mobile web performance. Interesting insights.
- RICG is hosting a meetup at Mozilla in Paris, France this September. Join if you can and discuss about Responsive Images.
- Compare automated screenshots of responsive websites using wraith – a tool by the BBC using slimerJS or PhantomJS and ImageMagick to solve the problem of different rendering results.
- Chris Coyier compares the various techniques how you can handle deployment of a project to a server.
- While we're there, Muricio Wolff shows you how to deploy simply via git.
So far, see you next week!
