Appropriate job title for someone who does web and app development?

webdev: reddit for web developers - 59 min 36 sec ago

Hello, I’m fairly new to this subreddit but thought this would be a good place to start.

I’ll make it short: Basically I want to help my S.O.’s business. I plan on doing a complete overhaul on his website and also creating an iOS app. I would want to obviously put this on my resume as experience but I’m not sure what title to put.

I’ve read that “Developer” is sufficient (to cover both Web and App) but I feel like it is not specific enough. Am I wrong?

html ul keeps inheriting from parent ul any font related params

webdev: reddit for web developers - 2 hours 43 min ago

Hi, I have a ul within another ul (a dropdown menu). The problem is that the inner ul inherits the css of the parent ul. I'm using specific selectors (">") and now it inherits only the font parameters. what can I do?

This is how the html looks like:

<ul> <li><a>1</a></li> <li><a>2</a></li> <li> <a>3</a> <ul class="dropdown-menu"> <li><a>1.1</a></li> <li><a>1.2</a></li> <li><a>1.3</a></li> </ul> </li> </ul>

And this is the css:

nav > ul { some stuff goes here } nav > ul > li { Inherit from here font related stuff and ignoring anything else } nav > ul > li > a { some stuff goes here } submitted by /u/redditrabbit222

[Showoff Saturday] Another am I ready to apply? portfolio

webdev: reddit for web developers - 3 hours 35 min ago

I'm trying to transition from motion graphics to web development starting with front end work. I've been learning basic front end for the last 6 months or so for video products at work and they include very minimal javascript. But I'm trying to find a more stable career and went all in into learning ES6 with my portfolio. Reddit and this thread specifically has been phenomenal in searching for resources to learn. I still need to learn more about React and SQL and CMSs and everything else since it's never ending. I would love to get into p5.js or three.js, but I would like to get some real world experience under my belt. Just wondering if I'm good enough to start applying for jr front end positions.

Any comments welcome. Thank you in advance.

Webrtc tester

webdev: reddit for web developers - 4 hours 5 min ago

I have an application that uses webrtc to allow people to play a game. A problem we are having is that not all users have their computers/mics/speakers configured to use the app properly. Is there some sort of tool that allows users to verify that they have everything set up before they continue? Thanks.

Quick question for you guys

webdev: reddit for web developers - Sat, 07/21/2018 - 23:42

I’m pretty new to this and have gotten my head around html, css, and bootstrap. A friend of mine owns his own company and we had talked about doing a simple website for that company. I guess my question is really how much you guys would charge for a simple website for a friends company just showing who they are, how to contact them, construction projects, they’ve done and things of that nature. I appreciate any help.

webdev: reddit for web developers - Sat, 07/21/2018 - 23:26

I've spent the past week learning the MEAN stack, is there any popular or famous projects that I can make which will allow me to utilize everything I learned?

I am working on a site that appears not to be adding "overflow: hidden" to the html tag when popup is open - chrome on iphone? How can I check this/ resolve this? Dev tools for chrome on iphone don't seem to be available

webdev: reddit for web developers - Sat, 07/21/2018 - 22:43

The popup was created using a jquery library called magnific-popup that I'm not familiar with and I'm not sure how it's working. Is there any reason that this behaviour isn't working for chrome on ios? I think it's working by adding inline styles? Has anyone come across this before? What can I do to solve it? What are some options for dev tools for an iphone on chrome(not happening on safari)

[Showoff Saturday] SVG Performance & Compatibility Script

webdev: reddit for web developers - Sat, 07/21/2018 - 19:00

I love SVGs. They're sharp, and super small gzipped. But they're also a headache. Old browsers won't display them, and more complicated images will cause performance/draw issues on mobile.

Anyway, I've done some research and put together a little script that deals with those problems. It's specifically meant to be used with svgs loaded in img tags.

On old browsers, it points the source to a png copy. On newer browsers it converts the svg to canvas so scrolling performance on mobile is a lot smother.

Anyway, I thought I'd share. If you can make it better I'm open to feedback. :)

var images = document.getElementsByTagName('img'); for (i = 0; i < images.length; i++) { var image = images[i]; var src = image.getAttribute('src'); var ext = src.split('.').pop(); if(src != null && ext == 'svg') { // Fallback to pngs in old browsers. if (typeof SVGRect == "undefined") { var newSrc = src.replace('.svg', '.' + "png"); image.setAttribute('src', newSrc); } // Replace SVGs with canvases for better mobile scroll performance on the browsers that support it. else { function imageLoaded(evt) { try { var target = evt != undefined ? evt.target : image; var height = target.height; var width = target.width; var canvas = document.createElement("canvas"); canvas.setAttribute("Height", (height * 2) + "px"); canvas.setAttribute("Width", (width * 2) + "px"); canvas.style.cssText = "height:" + height + "px;width:" + width + "px;"; canvas.className = target.className; var ctx = canvas.getContext('2d'); var img = new Image(); img.src = target.getAttribute('src'); ctx.drawImage(img, 0, 0, (width * 2), (height * 2)); target.src = canvas.toDataURL(); } finally { target.removeEventListener('load', imageLoaded, false); } } if (image.complete) { imageLoaded(); } else { image.addEventListener('load', imageLoaded, false); } } } }

[Sub-Showoff-Saturday] Here's an example of this script in action on a site I maintain.

There are a few areas where I got stuck. On Internet Explorer, canvas.toDataURL() is blocked for security reasons. I couldn't find a work-around.

I also couldn't figure out how to check for svg support in ctx.drawImage(), so right now it just tries it, and fails gracefully.

Help with backend/CMS

webdev: reddit for web developers - Sat, 07/21/2018 - 18:20

I want to create a site that uses two templates, one as an archive page and one as a single page. There will be a lot of these archive pages and even more single pages and I’m like looking at an easy way to be able to create all the pages with all the individual information stored in a database. Wordpress seems to much for this, I’d like to able to jump in and create the pages/information in Sequel Pro, if that’s even possible. I’m mainly a front end dev with little knowledge on the back end so any help would be much appreciated. 😊

Container on text for rollover images is too small

webdev: reddit for web developers - Sat, 07/21/2018 - 16:49

I want to have the text that appears on an opacity based css rollover to just have spacing 1em from the edge of the image. However, the container itself is around 25% from the edge of the image. Kinda hard to explain but help would be appreciated!

What's a simple trick to adding more "Wow" to your website?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Sat, 07/21/2018 - 16:30

Hey guys,

I am finishing up a web project and my client is looking for a bit more "Wow factor" in it. It's a vague statement but I think the statement is also fairly self explanatory. What little fluff do you add in your websites to make it prettier or seem more professional than it actually is?

Choosing a Course/Path to stick with?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Sat, 07/21/2018 - 16:13


I'm sorry if this gets asked a fair bit, but I thought I would ask, as searching hasn't really yielded the answer I was looking for.

I've done a bit of self studying and have completed CS50x and MIT's 6.00.1x, I've a plan to continue on learning more details in topics like especially Data Structures & Algorithms, but also Computer Architecture and Operating Systems, etc.

I've decided I would like to learn a bit more about web development, and I think it's a good idea to keep learning practical skills and making things while I learn the theory. But I'm having a hard time deciding on a 'path'.

As far as what I already know; A bit of Python from 6.00.1x, and I did a bit of tinkering with Flask as part of CS50 - really liked it too. I also know a little C and a very small amount of C#.

As I alluded to, I've seen a few resources, but I'm having a hard time picking one out:

  • Free Code Camp - I've started this, but it seems very front-end oriented (where I think I'd enjoy backend a lot more), and I'm not getting a lot out of the lessons so far. It feels like I'm just copying out what they say without really having to think, where I get a lot out of challenges. It's possible the format changes later though, when it comes to trickier stuff.
    I know there are projects assigned at the end of each section, but they feel a long way off.
  • The Odin Project - Seems a bit more up my alley from what I've seen, but people generally seem to think it's not as good as Free Code Camp - or rather, aren't as positive on it. Not sure why. It does seem more in line with what I'm after and does seem to focus a good bit on the backend of things, but it's in Ruby. I don't think I've ever known a company near me to use Ruby. I might be putting too much value on language/framework, but it does seem quite the con.
  • CS50 Web - I know remarkably little about this, I think it's very new. It does focus on Flask/Django, which is quite cool, and I did very much enjoy CS50, but I'm not sure if it's up to the same standard and (understandably considering how new it is), I haven't really seen any opinions on it. I'd probably have just gone for this if there were some concrete opinions on it.
  • Something else - It's more than possible I don't know of a resource that's really excellent, so feel free to suggest one. I don't really mind what media it uses.
    Learning .NET would be an idea, just because it seems very popular here in the UK, but it does seem quite intimidating, and resources do seem a bit more scarce.

Thank you.
