Is there a true cross-platform/cross-browser widget(code,lib) for "add to bookmarks (start screen, etc)" for all modern browsers/devices?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Thu, 01/17/2019 - 09:05

I can't find a good ready to use free solution for add to bookmarks (and/or add to desktop or start screen for mobile platforms - iOS, android)? I want to have one universal button, which i will offer to my users, who want to memorize my site on their browsers/devices.

My typical user are not tech specialist and I can't offer them to use "ctrl-d" or suggest any other guides instead of "one big red button".

Is there any variant you know? Please, advice me (links, code, etc).

Not a web dev, need to remove contents of a website (that I own).

webdev: reddit for web developers - Thu, 01/17/2019 - 09:04

So I'm not a web developer at all, I had a website that I had someone else develop on but they're no longer in contact with me. The website displays some incorrect information now. I'd like to get rid of the website altogether for now, but I can't seem to do it.

I attempted to overwrite it by publishing a blank site (with just a single picture) from dreamweaver but that didn't work even though it says the FTP address and password is all correct. When I went to look at the web contents on my GoDaddy account the files in the site were just the picture I uploaded, not the contents that appear on the site. I resorted to deleting the site from my GoDaddy account but it still appears as it was.

I'm stumped, any advice on an easy way to clear the website?

Recommendations for Native Wrapper App?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Thu, 01/17/2019 - 08:34

Hey everyone!

I am not an iOS/Android developer...I work only in web development but I'm hoping maybe someone here can help.

I am currently working on a project where the client requires that the web application I am building also exist in App form (meaning it's got to be a legit app to be installed via respective app store). It's a dynamic web app that pulls a ton of data from the database and talks to a couple API...nothing too crazy.

This is my first time doing anything like this so I'm trying to figure things out.

To me the logical solution is a Native Wrapper app like what these guys do : https://gonative.io/

Is this place legit? Do you folks have any recommendations?

We definitely MUST have push notifications (offline availability would be excellent as well - even if this only works for certain pages inside the web app).

I don't have any developer friends who do iOS stuff so I feel like I'm flying blind here. I had also looked into something called PhoneGap but that appears to not play well with database-driven web apps?

A frustrated beginners rant.

Drupal - Open Source Content Platform - Thu, 01/17/2019 - 07:43

Sigh. I believe that drupal is amazing and i would love to be a drupal site builder. I have realized that there are no step by step tutorial of building a good looking drupal website. All free tutorials end up with terrible bartik or someother shabby theme thingy.

I thought drupal tv would help what with keynotes and drupalcon. Ow yeah! Hell no! These in my opinion have left me even more lost. these showcase some great sites they made using some mumbo jumbo formulas eg Bricks, Paragraphs and Modifiers or some Panels Views and Ooomph paragraphs ☺. By the time am done i am done watching these things am fried. Like now.

You will find a bunch of wordpress step by step from hosting to deployment. Ending up with a beautiful site. But drupal, dude from drupal atlanta tells you dont use Bricks, some dude called Murray woodman swears by bricks... Wtf!

I believe that seeing a step by step process would benefit newbies to see a procedure to make something then become adventurous on their own.

TLDR: Looking for step by step tutorial to make a decent drupal site from scratch.

Fried brain, let me see what pewdiepie has uploaded 😂😂 dont judge me. There is a called Hawkeye Tenderwolf giving speech on drupalcamp atlanta 2017.

Any Drupal 8 calendar?

Drupal - Open Source Content Platform - Thu, 01/17/2019 - 07:36

I did installl fullcalendar module on a brand new drupal/Drupal project fresh install and it generates errors in the report log and the calendar does not show up in the view preview. I guess there are version issues with the jquery.ease library. I also tried the calendar module (not on a fresh install). The calendar is shown on the preview but no event are displayed.

Does anybody knows a good alternative? Being able to display event using taxonomy is of interest.

Can you recommend any popular API that would take city or latitude and longitude and return places to check and sightsee?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Thu, 01/17/2019 - 07:26

Originally, I was thinking about using TripAdvisor's API, however, it seems that it is open only to actual businesses since the application requires company name, location, type and stuff like already working website, etc.

Now that this is out of the picture, I'm googling for other similar APIs but can't decide which one to use since I haven't heard about any of them myself so I can't discern how popular they are.

Hello everyone,

i was working on my school project which is creating a security system with a raspberry pi with a Wordpress site going with it.

Junior Web Dev looking into ecommerce freelancing

webdev: reddit for web developers - Thu, 01/17/2019 - 06:47

Hi. I wanna help out a friend build their ecommerce site. With this, I also wanna set up myself for freelancing and learn as much as I could. I have almost a year of real world experience in web dev and mainly in the frontend (HTML/CSS, JS, Vue, Node).

I've looked into static site generators with snipcart, shopify and stripe. This ecommerce site's owner only wants the whole thing to be pretty on the frontend and doesn't care much on the backend. What do you think I should go for and worth learning while making the owner happy since theyre non-technical?

Dynamic CSS grid

webdev: reddit for web developers - Thu, 01/17/2019 - 05:50

As a beginner, I am looking for a library that would do almost the same thing as on the link below. The thing I need is to be drag/drop and to have size feature (1x1, 1x2, 1xx3, 1x4). And I need (i can implement this) when shown in 1x1 I have one style when 1x2 I have another style to this element etc.

Why am I not using just this library? Because i do not know how to install it, there is no tutorial or install guide

Best way to style Vue.js (Nuxt) single file components using Tailwind CSS?

webdev: reddit for web developers - Thu, 01/17/2019 - 03:35

I'm trying to figure out how to build out my styles "the Tailwind way" within the context of a Vue/Nuxt app and it's not clear to me what the best way is to approach this given that:

  • Vue would like the styles for a particular component to be written within the same single file as the markup and js/script lives (i.e. scoped styles).

  • Tailwind allows for you to build your own custom compositions using @apply.

  • Tailwind's utilities (i.e. @apply) are not available within the context of a single file component.

So what's the best way to handle this? Just stick to using Tailwind's basic classes within your components (no @apply)? Another option I considered: I could just build up all my composite classes within a global css file (where @apply is available) but I don't like the idea of having component CSS scattered across multiple files as it seems like a Vue anti-pattern to me.
