Best PNG fix for IE6

Friday, March 20th, 2009

We’ve tried a lot of IE6 PNG fixes  – but we just couldn’t find anything that worked, besides one! Now we can share with you an Internet Explorer 6 PNG fix, that actually works – and it’s quite easy to use.

The fix does work with both images, non-repeating backgrounds and repeating-background, however there are some issues with the script: you’ll get them near the bottom.

The author of this PNG fix is dillerdesign and he has done it quite well, but let’s just get started.

The codes

For the script to work, you’ll have to refer to a javascript file in your document (head). We’ll wrap it in a condition, so that it only runs if the browser is IE6, since the PNG bug is in IE6

40 Useful JavaScript Libraries

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009

Popular JavaScript libraries such as jQuery, MooTools, Prototype, Dojo and YUI can be great for accomplishing common JavaScript tasks. These libraries provide many functions, whether the matter is related to events or effects or AJAX. And if one of these libraries can’t do the job, a plug-in probably exists that can.

Such flexibility is great but sometimes comes with a penalty (the size of JavaScript files being one of them). Although adopting a well-known JavaScript library is usually a wise decision, you may want to perform a task that can be accomplished by a more lightweight library dedicated exclusively to that task or that is not supported by the more popular JavaScript libraries.

Below, we present 40 stand-alone JavaScript libraries that serve specific purposes. These are not all the ones out there, but every Web designer or developer will find something helpful here. (more…)

50 useful PHP tools that can significantly improve your programming workflow

Sunday, March 1st, 2009

PHP is one of the most widely used open-source server-side scripting languages that exist today. With over 20 million indexed domains using PHP, including major websites like Facebook, Digg and WordPress, there are good reasons why many Web developers prefer it to other server-side scripting languages, such as Python and Ruby.

PHP is faster (updated), and it is the most used scripting language in practice; it has detailed documentation, a huge community, numerous ready-to-use scripts and well-supported frameworks; and most importantly, it’s much easier to get started with PHP than with other scripting languages (Python, for example). That’s why it makes perfect sense to provide the huge community of PHP developers with an overview of useful tools and resources that can make their development process easier and more effective.

This post presents 50 useful PHP tools that can significantly improve your programming workflow. Among other things, you’ll find a plethora of libraries and classes that aid in debugging, testing, profiling and code-authoring in PHP.
