All these years I have been only using jQuery as a Java Script framework. But I came across this situation where I had to use both jQuery and Prototype in one of my projects. This unavoidable situation resulted in jQuery functions not working as its supposed to. The obvious reason was a conflict between the two libraries. A Google search revealed that this is a common problem and the good news was jQuery already had a solution for it.
I found this excellent list of cheat sheets for Web Developers. It even includes a cheat sheet for SEO. It will be really valuable for Web Developers to keep these cheat sheets in hand.
Cheat sheets are helpful to have around because they allow you to quickly remember code syntax and see related concepts visually. Additionally, they're nice decorative pieces for your office.
So go ahead – print out your favorites and pepper your workspace with these wonderful references.
This is a fantastic list for Web Developers.
100+ Resources for Web Developers
From the Blogpost :
There is some amazing stuff out there on the Web-resources, tools, tricks, and tips. Problem is, as a Web developer, you spend so much of your time just keeping up with new technologies – learning, playing – and this doesn't leave much time to go hunting for the latest and greatest tool, or for a better way of doing things.
So we've put together a list of over 100 resources to help make your life as a developer easier; where to find snippets of code, sites that automate processes, cheat sheets, lessons, useful tools and a couple of silly videos to give your brain a break if you make it through to the end. Please enjoy!
Even though PHP's mail() function has been the No.1 choice for me to send an email, but PHPMailer is the ideal choice when I have to attach a file or send an email through a SMTP server with authentication.
php user class
This is a new addition to my list of classes. I haven't played around it yet, but php user class seems to be a cool class to manipulate users (login, logout, register, etc.) in web applications.
Magpie RSS can be used to parse RSS feeds.
This is one of the classes I came across recently. Its really cool. Using the htmlSQL class we can access HTML values by an SQL like syntax. Amazing ha?
Smarty has always been my choice for a Template Engine.
BBcode is the best way to allow users to add bit of spice to their posts in forums, blogs etc. As a developer converting the BBcode to HTML can be bit of a tough job but StringParser_BBcode can do that for you.
easyFormProc is a class that I developed that will create and handle all the process of the elements in a form. The processes include form posting, validation and retrieving the posted values. I have added few common validation functions. Custom functions can also be added.
It has been bit over two years since I last posted about the Web Developer Extension for Mozilla Firefox. All these years I have been using it quite effectively on my developments and it still remains a very effective tool. If you haven't started using it yet, here is a nice article that would encourage you to start using it.
Anyone who has the necessity to drag & drop images or layers should look into the DHTML API, Drag & Drop for Images and Layers. Its a really cool API as I played around it quite a bit. Most importantly this library is a free software and released under LGPL.
Today when I rushed into office I just got this news that we have to do some research on the AJAX framework, also known as XMLHTTPRequest or remote scripting which allows webpages to get information from a remote server without performing a browser refresh. It speeds up the browsing time as well as its more comfortable working with the AJAX application.
AJAX is the technique behind GMAIL. I was really keen on knowing the technique behind it , though something kept me away from doing any further research on it. And of course this is a good start.
Sajax is an open source tool to make programming websites using the Ajax framework. Hopefully you will find this tool very useful as well.
