multiScroll jQuery Plugin

jQuery | Posted by Keefr August 19th, 2017

jqueryI’m a roll here of sharing jQuery plugins the past few days. This one is by the guy who did FullPage.js, a plugin we’ve utilized on my dev team on several web projects.

This one creates divided multi-scrolling pages, with two vertical panels that scroll in opposite directions.

Fade Between Pages with jQuery

jQuery | Posted by Keefr August 18th, 2017

jqueryHere’s a cool little jQuery plugin you can use to fade (or other more tacky) transition between two pages utilizing CSS animations.

It’s probably not an effect you’d want to use on every web site, but I can definitely think of a few applications where it would be a nice bit of polish.

jqueryCool little jQuery plugin that takes the dominant color from an image and then applies it to the parent container.

While it’s got a singular focus, I can see it being really useful for a lot of web sites.

Online Regular Expression Tester / Debugger

DevOps, JavaScript, PHP, Web Development | Posted by Keefr July 10th, 2017

Markup / HTMLA guy on my team today shared this, and I had to immediately share as well. Regular Expression (RegEx) is super powerful, but can be very confusing, and a single character off can have big consequences, not work properly or cause a regular expression to fail completely.

Enter the site linked below, regular expressions 101. It allows you to test and debug regular expressions, and even its variations between PHP, JavaScript, Python and Go.

It’s cool in that as you put in RegEx, it code hints everything so you can fully understand everything in the string — which is nice when you find a possible solution on Stack Overflow or some other random development blog. It helps you parse out what the RegEx is actually doing.

The explanations are well done and it’s a tool I’m definitely bookmarking for the next time I’m in the regular expression world.
