  • Posted to Introducing Slinky: Slinging Responsive Emails From the Cloud, Sep 13, 2016

    I've been using Inky for transactional emails recently and it's a game changer. (The library that's behind this tool)

    Using it together with a CSS inlining tool you don't even know you're writing email code.

  • Posted to Show DN: Landing page for my first jQuery plugin – simplebox.js, Nov 09, 2015

    really nice. However I notice you use the same source image for the lightbox as you do for the regular image (1140x438) even though you're only displaying it at 500px wide. I get that it's much more simple not loading a larger one in to the lightbox, but on a page with lots of images this will quickly become an issue, loading 'lightbox sized' images when they're not required. Would love to see the option to load a larger image into the lightbox, although I'm sure you'd make sacrifices to do so...

    Agreed, this would have been a joke doing a realistic workflow in photoshop using this...

    eg. Find a file in Finder, Right click, Open With Phototshop, Add adjustment layer, Adjust curves (not generic brightness), Save as, Adjust Save Dialog, Close.

    Not sure if this is temporary, but they've gone for 'Passwordless' sign in process. One field for email, then they email you a link which signs you in.

    Anyone seen this before? Quite a disruptive UX having to go to your email every time. Obvious benefit is you never need to remember a password I guess....

    I think it's that his hair has gone up (physically) and his career has gone down.

    Might be me but I find the UX on this page is quite confusing. The URL suggests one of those lists that tells you things to do before launch. Then the UI suggests this as well, but it's actually a 'reading list generator' ?

    Could do with some more instructions eg. 1. Type your name 2. Select the topics you want to learn about 3. Start reading.

    The most generic type of app just got more generic.
