A successful Git branching model » nvie.com

In this post I present the development model that I’ve introduced for all of my projects (both at work and private) about a year ago, and which has turned out to be very successful. I’ve been meaning to write about it for a while now, but I’ve never really found the time to do so thoroughly, until now. I won’t talk about any of the projects’ details, merely about the branching strategy and release management.

  • Why git?
  • Decentralized but centralized
  • The main branches
  • Supporting branches

PhoneGap + Application Craft = Pain-Free Mobile App Development

PhoneGap + Application Craft = Pain-Free Mobile App Development

Just as the PhoneGap mantra is fast and easy cross-platform mobile app deployment, Application Craft creators are committed to making the mobile app and content development process pain-free. No wonder these two technologies get on so well!

Application Craft is a cloud-based, desktop and mobile app development environment for building enterprise apps and mobile and tablet content. On top of its advanced browser-based IDE, Application Craft offers a sophisticated back end that supports database integration, data storage and more. Examples of apps built with Application Craft include the Tate Modern Museum mobile app and the JamieOliver.com app.

jQuery MagicLine Navigation | CSS-Tricks

These “sliding” style navigation bars have been around a while, I just thought I’d take a crack at doing it myself as the opportunity came up recently. Turns out it’s really pretty darn easy. I put two examples together for it.

jQuery MagicLine Navigation

The Idea

The idea is to have a highlight of some kind a background or an underline follow you around as you mouse over the different links in the navigation. This will happen with jQuery and it’s animation abilities. As such, the “magic line” will only be appended via JavaScript. Once added to the list and styled, as you mouse over the different links, it figures out the left positioning and the width and animates to match.
