I'm still quite a newbie at this stuff, but I think the development tooling around React and Redux is pretty dang impressive.
Wufoo is for building web forms. From a simple contact forms to complex, multi-page, logic-controlled mega forms.
Personally, I'm a huge Wufoo user. I have multiple accounts across different organizations. Each organization has multiple users with access to different forms and reports. I've used it for job applications, customer support, selling T-shirts, collecting feedback, lead generation, and more.
Wufoo has collected literally hundreds of thousands of form entries for me, saving me countless hours of dev work. Often those entries are emailed to me and my team, sometimes they are turned into reports to help us understand something better, and always that data is stored right within Wufoo, accessible through APIs and to Wufoo's many integrations with other apps.
This is the third and final article in a series on "remote control WordPress". That's my nickname for this strategy of managing network settings on one "control" install, and then pulling those values into all your client installs. The advantage is that it saves staff members from having to toggle the same settings on the same network plugins, across many multisite installs.
This is pretty big news: earlier today the WebKit team announced that iOS 10 will now support silent
<video> elements with the
autoplay attribute, which is a big deal for performance. Jer Noble describes the update in much more detail:
It turns out that people these days really like GIFs. But the GIF format turns out to be a very expensive way to encode animated images when compared to a modern video codec like H.264. We’ve found that GIFs can be up to twelve times as expensive in bandwidth and twice as expensive in energy use. It’s so expensive that many of the largest GIF providers have been moving away from GIFs and toward the
<video>element. Since most of these GIFs started out their lives as video clips, were converted into animated GIFs, and were again converted back to video clips, you might say that the circle is complete.
You should use the
- You have a single multiple choice question (using radio buttons or checkboxes).
- You have several questions relating to the same topic (like text boxes, or any other type of field).
You should not use the
- You have a single form field that asks for a single piece of information.
In this pairing screencast, I hang out with Dee Gill. We take a look at some layout stuff for a new app she's working on: Tinge. She had a design mockup she was working from, so we peak at that and try and build it out in HTML and CSS. We start at the top and focus on the navigation, using flexbox heavily to do what we need to do. …
