  • Posted to Show DN: Landing page for my first jQuery plugin – simplebox.js, in reply to Ratik Sharma , Nov 10, 2015

    Still looks the same to me. I should have said - this is using Chrome on iOS. In safari it's working fine

    Hey man. Nice job getting a plugin out there. A light box was something I was thinking of doing as my first!

    Some feedback - I just opened this on my iPhone 6 and it seems a bit buggy.

    The lightbox doesn't fill 100% of the height of the screen and you can still scroll through content underneath. Just a helpful suggestion anyway. If you need any help with testing let me know!

    Easiest way to do it in my opinion - decide how much you want to spend first. Then you will be able to narrow it down to a few models and start researching them.

    I ended up going with Nikon over a canon in the same price range purely because I preferred the interface in the viewfinder. there wasn't much difference apart from that.

    For some reason I've resorted to calling this area the 'masthead'. Think it might be a newspaper thing.

  • Posted to rem or em?, in reply to Quoc Nguyen , Apr 07, 2015

    This is what I've started doing; a reset so 1rem = 10px.

    Need to have a bit more of a play around but I've been using rems for pretty much everything including padding, margins etc. (padding: 2rem ; = 20px) Not sure if this is the best practice but when looking in the 'computed' styles using Chrome inspector everything works as expected.

    Someone call me out if this is wrong - Most people seem to refer to rems and ems in a font capacity and not margins and padding so I'm not fully convinced I'm doing it right...

  • Posted to Improve your PSD layer names with emojis, in reply to Caleb Sylvest , Mar 26, 2015

    Same here. I put everything in groups of how they would be built front-end and colour-code them to help scanning layers easier.

    A combination of colours and icons could be cool though.

    Getting another offer on the table and using it as leverage is something I've seen other people use successfully in the past.

    I have also had others tell me the way to get a pay rise is to move thought.
