Mobile HTML5 by Estelle Weyl


Mobile HTML5 by Estelle Weyl

Book "Mobile HTML5" is really good. I have heard about it last year at Front-Trends conference and I'm glad because of this. It's really good for beginners and intermediate developers. 
Estelle Weyl reminded me that mobile HTML5 is 95% just HTML5. You can treat this book as a reference of various mobile quirks especially if you need to support something else than only newest Safari on iPhone. 

If you are interested in HTML5 but mostly how to use it in mobile browsers this book is for you. It covers every aspect of mobile web development so you can read about CSS3, JavaScript and even some basics of DevTools.

How to simulate slow connection (developer proxy in Node.js)

Update: If you use Chrome then you can use "Throttling" so simulate slow network for all your assets. This should be easier than proxy.

Proxy:



For some time I wanted to use some proxy for development and testing of eg. slow internet connection, but it was hard to find something useful and free. I know there is Charles but buy it to use it at most one in a month is not for me.

I started thinking about Node.js, maybe I can write proxy for me? But fortunately I found one.

With this module I can write really short code to create slow server:


var http = require('http'), httpProxy = require('http-proxy'); httpProxy.createServer(function (req, res, proxy) { var buffer = httpProxy.buffer(req); setTimeout(function () { proxy.proxyRequest(req, res, { host: 'localhost', port: 8080, …

How to use NPM packages from private repositories on bitbucket

Using Node.js you want to use NPM packages for reusable parts of the apps you create, that is a common sense. At the same time not everything makes sense as a public module unfortunately. Right now we are using Bitbucket at work for private repositories but there is a problem. How to use them as NPM modules? We do not want to publish them to the public npmjs.org but still want to have an ability to install them easily.

After googling and experimenting I have found simple solution.
First create new user in your organization with obscure password and give it read access to the repo. It is best to assign really obscure password but do not fool yourself. This is convenient but you must sacrifice security a bit. You should always consider how in your context that would be important.

Change example from below to:
user - username
PASS - password of the user
organization - owner of the project (you can find it in bitbucket url to your project)
project - your project name
