WEBSHIMS LIB.

Image
Interesting project for shim all HTML5 features for old browsers!

This could be for shims like jQuery for JS libraries :) But this is really hard to have both speed and support and in some cases it is just better to prompt user for better browser than trying to display things that will probably slow website to point it can't be used.

This really interests me how long it will take to start and shim especially in old browsers when there is much more to shim.

Interesting presentation about Node.js in practice:


Online REPL

Image
Repl.it is application that can be used as repl for many languages, especially when you don't have one for that language installed in OS.
Left panel can be used to run multiline code - this is big advantage over standard repl, in that situation usually you need to create file for it or write it in repl that can be tricky.


Kickstrap

Kickstrap is a project that aim to be more powerful version of Twitter Bootsrap. Something like Bootstrap++ :)

From start it has themes, many JS libraries, h5bp build script...

Schema.org vs. Microformats

Pretty good FAQ about this standards:

http://www.seomoz.org/blog/the-lowdown-on-structured-data-and-schemaorg-your-questions-answered Short answer: Schema.org has support of search engines so It has more chances to be de facto standard.
