  JavaScript-style object literals in PHP


The object literal notation in JavaScript looks like: var fido = {name: "Fido", barks: true}; or var fido = {}; fido.name = "Fido"; fido.barks = true; From assoc arrays to objects In PHP you would call that an associative array. $fido = array( 'name' => "Fido", 'barks' => true ); And you can easily make it an object too: $fido = (object)$fido; echo gettype($fido); // "object" Or if you want to start with a blank object and add stuff to it: $fido = (object)array(); or $fido...

  That “JavaScript not available” case


During some interesting discussions on Twitter yesterday I found that there is now more than ever a confusion about JavaScript dependence in web applications and web sites. This is a never ending story but it seems to me to flare up ever time our browsing technology leaps forward. I encountered this for the first time back in the days of DHTML. We pushed browsers to their limits with our lovely animated menus and 3D logos (something we of course learned not to do again, right?) and we were ...

The so-called programming ...

  JavaScript tutorial - Creating time delays


There are two ways of creating time delays with JavaScript. The first is more simple and will simply wait for a specified amount of time before executing a function. The second does the same but will repeatedly execute the function. Note, many browsers have a minimum delay length of between 25 and 75 ms, with some of the fastest browsers having a minimum delay of about 3 ms. If a shorter delay is specified, the actual delay will be the minimum delay length. Even with higher numbers, the delay i...

  5 Reasons Your Javascript Stinks


Javascript gets a bad rap on the Internet, but there are few languages that are so dynamic, so widespread, and so deeply rooted in our lives as Javascript is. The low barrier of entry leads some people to call it a script kiddie language, others scoff at the concept of a dynamic language while riding their statically typed high horse. You and Javascript just got off on the wrong foot, and now you've made it angry. Here's five reasons why your Javascript code sucks.1. You're not using a namespace...

  JavaScript as a First Language


At Khan Academy we've been investigating teaching Computer Science to students in some new and interesting ways. The most interesting aspect of which is that we're likely going to be teaching them JavaScript as their first language. We're in a very unique position as we're primarily aiming to teach students who've been through our previous math and science-centric curriculum. Because of this we can create some rather compelling exercises and projects that never would've been feasible other...

  Why Javascript is a Joy


I’m probably a bit biased – being a front-end web developer for a few years will do that – but I really enjoy writing Javascript. I’ve recently retreated from pure coding the last few months, but I got an opportunity this past week to jump back into some tasks, and it has reminded me how fun it is to dive into our[1] front-end codebase. Yes, Javascript can be surprisingly elegant yet completely infuriating, and all on the same line of code; for a long time, it remained the joke...

  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) || (...
