  You can get properties of pseudo-element using JavaScript now


The pseudo-element6 in CSS is extremely useful, you can use it to create CSS triangles and lots of other elements without overuse many HTML elements. In the past, you cannot get the property value of pseudo-element in CSS using JavaScript. Now you can call a new method in JavaScript to get them easily.

  CSS Overflow Property Utilization


Sometimes when we do CSS on HTML elements. We may want to hide some text when the text in a specified box overflows. Usually, we can use a CSS property overflow:hidden to hide the text so that the format of the whole element will not be affected. But will it always work? I believe some of us may encounter problems when we want to hide some text in a table td cell with specified width. If we use td { overflow:hidden;}, it is supposed to hide the text if the text in a td cell overflows. But the fa...

  JS code to check different mobile devices


Today I come across a code snippet which uses JavaScript to check different mobile devices and then loads different CSS files accordingly. As we know that there are mobile devices with different screen sizes, it's always troublesome for web developers to develop cross browser and cross device compatible codes. Hope this one can help those who develop web apps on mobile devices. // Check whether it's a mobile device // wukong.name 20130716 if(/AppleWebKit.*Mobile/i.test(navigator.userAgent) || (...

  CSS3 animation vs CSS3 transition


Both CSS3 animation and CSS3 transition can be used to transition an element in a webpage. They can be used to transition some CSS properties within a given period of time. They have many similarities. They do have a few differences as well. So an user needs to understand the differences between them in order to better use them in different scenarios. First, let's see an example on how to change the width of a div from 100px to 200px within 2 seconds when hovering on it. With CSS3 animation , th...

  How ScrollerJS works


ScrollerJS is a light weight number scroller module to be embedded in web apps. It provides fancy number scrolling animations. ScrollerJS supports both CSS transition and DOM animation to handle the animation needed. If CSS transition is supported in a browser, CSS transition will be the preferred option for animation. If in old browsers where CSS transition is not supported. DOM animation will be chosen automatically. How does the number scrolling actually work? To transition a number from 0 to...

  CSS Tools: Reset CSS


The goal of a reset stylesheet is to reduce browser inconsistencies in things like default line heights, margins and font sizes of headings, and so on. The general reasoning behind this was discussed in a May 2007 post, if you're interested. Reset styles quite often appear in CSS frameworks, and the original "meyerweb reset" found its way into Blueprint, among others. The reset styles given here are intentionally very generic. There isn't any default color or background set for the bod...

  I’m too lazy to be a HTML developer


There’s no denying it. I’m just to damn lazy to be an HTML developer. This really sunk in when I looked at a tutorial for doing a jQuery Lightbox – for a client project. The tutorial was titled “Super Simple Lightbox with CSS and jQuery” but after reading it over I thought a better title would be “A really freaking hard tutorial on the inane intricacies of doing something that looks simple but in reality is a skein of HTML, Javascript and CSS that no one except an HTML Jedi Ma...

  CSS Animation vs. JavaScript: Which One Is Better?


You know that there are two ways of creating animations on the web: with CSS and JavaScript. And, their selection completely depends on the dependencies of the project. But many web developers hold a wrong perception that CSS is the only way of creating the animations. In fact, CSS has established as the most pampered system of the web development industry and most of the developers recommend it because it is mobile-friendly and powerful system. No doubt CSS is good, but JavaScript is the best....
