Streaming Videos Through Amazon S3 Cloudfront and HTML5

HTML, Web Development | Posted by Keefr October 23rd, 2014

markup-htmlAmazon Web Services is a wonderfully powerful and affordable way to host files on the Internet. The one small problem is the documentation just plain sucks. Recently, I started the move of transitioning my company’s videos off of YouTube and onto Amazon’s S3 and CloudFront services. While I had used S3 before, I’d never used CloudFront, which makes a huge difference in performance. Regardless, I needed a little guidance setting it all up and came across the article below, which was perfect for configuring everything.

Truly Responsive Images with Responsive-Images.js

CSS, HTML, Responsive Design | Posted by Keefr December 9th, 2013

I’ve been meaning to post this for quite awhile — and while I haven’t used it yet, it seems like a good idea for maximizing and optimizing display images for the viewport at hand. It uses a combination of HTML5 and JavaScript.

Jo: Simple App Framework for HTML5

CSS, JavaScript | Posted by Keefr January 29th, 2013

This really seems like a winner. I need to take a few hours in a coming weekend to give it a try, to have enough familiarity with it to have in the back of my mind for a project that it would work with. It really seems too good to be true.

Their web site’s home page does a good job of boiling it down:

Jo was made for apps, not websites.
Your HTML5 app lives in a single page and Jo helps you create a native-like app experience. Sure, there’s some DOM manipulation going on in there, but you don’t have to worry about it unless you want to. Build your app with JavaScript, tweak some CSS and call it a day.

This is all a formality. It’s all about browser support (and sadly, legacy browser support), but it is cool to see this early Christmas present about the HTML5 Spec.

HTML5 Please

HTML | Posted by Keefr December 4th, 2012

Came across this site several weeks ago, but have been just way too busy to get it posted. HTML5 Please is a great HTML reference (along with CSS and API) that I’d put up there as an equivalent to the CSS awesomeness of caniuse.com. Very useful and recommends when to avoid, when to use polyfills, etc.
