Good frontend IDEs on Linux?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Thu, 11/15/2018 - 01:22

I'm primarily a backend/cloud developer and have recently been motivated to jump heavily into frontend design. What are some of the best IDEs for doing frontend development, preferably FOSS?

What is best practice for boilerplate content that is replicated on multiple pages of a website?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Thu, 11/15/2018 - 00:48

Currently I am working on updating my website, which is bare-bones at the moment.

For the new version, I am using just HTML/JS/CSS, in other words no PHP. But I like how you can generate standard sections using PHP includes, so I have the header stuff and navbar generated on each page through a JavaScript function.

So much easier to make a change to the boilerplate stuff this way!

Is there anything wrong with leaving it like that once the new version launches?

Interactive map I could embed in my website?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Wed, 11/14/2018 - 23:02

Looking for something. I want to embed a little map of all the places fiancé and I have traveled to (cities). We’d like a little interactive dotted line that moves with time/dates. Anyone have something or know of something. This might be the best example I’ve found thus far. http://www.realjetcharter.com/travel-map

Tricky Issue with Videos for a Membership site

webdev: reddit for web developers - Wed, 11/14/2018 - 22:26

Hey Everyone,

Got a tricky issue my startup is running into, and I didnt know where else to turn. Basically its a membership site we are building, with videos to demonstrate things. Each page has multiple videos. Currently, we are hosting the videos on the site, built in WP. This decision was made for a number of reasons, but now we are running into a problem. Below is a description of what we view as the requirements, and what the issue is:

Requirements – Ideal scenario:

On mobile, with music playing from a different app, the video should play muted. This should not cause the music to pause. If the user chooses to unmute the video, music should pause. If music is reengaged, subsequent videos should act in the exact same manner.

Requirements – Back up Scenario

On mobile, with the music the video should play muted. All subsequent videos should act in the exact same manner.

The issue:

Music is currently cut under different scenarios for different phones tested. Some will cut on all videos, regardless of if they are muted or not. Others will only cut if a video has been unmuted, but will cut again if that same video is reopened, but not if any other video is played. Other phones will mute every time a video is played once the first one is taken off mute.

As of right now, we havent been able to find a solution. Using youtube videos we still run into the same problem. We are trying to talk to vimeo, but they havent been super helpful. Should I be using a certain kind of video file? Is there a certain way I can remove sound from the video that wont trigger the music to cut?

Let me know if I wasnt clear on anything....hoping someone has an idea of how to build this...

As part of a project for a course at University of Illinois at Chicago, I am looking at the effects of geographic distance on the effectiveness of commercial software teams. I am conducting a survey to gather information from people that are members of software teams. If you have at least one-year experience working on a software team with at least 5 team members, please take about 15 minutes to complete the survey.

Take Survey

Thank you for your input on this project.

How much should I sell my domains for?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Wed, 11/14/2018 - 21:35

I have a bunch of unused domains lying around in my GoDaddy account (from an ARG that never ended up happening), and I want to get rid of them. I've never sold domains before tho, and I have no idea how much people are willing to pay for them. Could anyone with experience in this area give me a ballpark estimate of what my asking price should be? Here's a link to my domain list: https://www.dropbox.com/s/agiz7vbjkqjjh49/Creepy%20websites%20for%20sale.pdf?dl=0 (not trying to advertise here btw, just trying to figure this side of the industry out)

Thanks,

Yitz

Complex forms

webdev: reddit for web developers - Wed, 11/14/2018 - 20:59

Hello I have a couple of questions:

I have a complex form that requires more input fields to be generated based on what the user has already input. For example: if the user says that they are not an Australian citizen, i require their passport information. Sooooo, should I just originally hide the passport input fields, and if they select that they're not an aussie, I would then display the html to them?

Cheers (I'm using cakephp)

As a dev of 10+ years who loves Vue, give me your arguments for React

webdev: reddit for web developers - Wed, 11/14/2018 - 19:45

This isn't a bait or troll question, it's something I've been wondering about. I was mostly PHP and Jquery in my early days (2007) and when I started learning JS frameworks outside of jQuery I focused on Angular. When Vue came out I jumped on board because it felt the most natural to me and It's still my preferred front-end framework.

At my job I've had to learn and work on React projects and coming from a Vue background, it seemed more complicated to me and I understand that's not a valid point, just my personal experience.

My question is what makes React better than Vue objectively, if it even is. A lot of discussions I've seen, seem to rely on complexity or arguments over JSX. I'm just wondering.. if you took two apps and made one in Vue and one in React, why is one better than the other objectively.

At the end of the day I know it doesn't matter which framework you chose as long as it achieves your goals, my issue is when people argue for one framework over the other. I would like to know what I'm actually missing out on.

Fetch Images, Meta Data from given URL

webdev: reddit for web developers - Wed, 11/14/2018 - 18:27

Hi folks

I have seen some forms where when you add a URL they fetch metadata like Title, Description, *multiple* media files like images and Videos from within the main content of the page ( it filters out logos, social media icons, and other such images) , etc is there a pre-existing service that can fetch this data for me.

PS: for the life of me I can't figure out where I have seen it. The basic one which fetches one image, title and description works on sites like Facebook, Reddit.

How long to learn enough that I can communicate enough

29yo, working in a small german web agency and feeling lost in space. Am i the only one left working with php, Content managment systems and the lamp stack, to fullfill the needs of casual companies? Or do i need a harvard informatics degree to react my redux in a docker cloud mongo node cluster.. Lol i assume u get my point. I feel like im a dying model of oldschool webdev. Its not like i didnt try angular and react. Its more like we dont have the use cases - but the german baker Website doesnt need a react spa page... Or do they?
