Building A Responsive Web Application – Smashing Magazine - 31 Jul 2015 01:40


[[html]]We are talking and reading a lot about responsive Web design (RWD) these days, but very little attention is given to Web applications. Admittedly, RWD still has to be ironed out. But many of us believe it to be a strong concept, and it is here to stay. So, why don't we extend this topic to HTML5-powered applications? Because responsive Web applications (RWAs) are both a huge opportunity and a big challenge, I wanted to dive in.<br><br>Building a RWA is more feasible than you might think. In this article, we will explore ideas and solutions. In the first part, we will set up some important concepts. We will build on these in the second part to actually develop a RWA, and then explore how scalable and portable this approach is.<br><br>Part 1: Becoming Responsible<br><br>Some Lessons Learned<br><br>It's not easy to admit, but recently it has become more and more apparent that we don't know many things about users of our websites. Varying screen sizes, device features and input mechanisms are pretty much RWD's reasons for existence.<br><br>From the lessons we've learned so far, we mustn't assume too much. For instance, a small screen is not necessarily a touch device. A mobile device could be over 1280 pixels wide. And a desktop could have a slow connection. We just don't know. And that's fine. This means we can focus on these things separately without making assumptions: that's what responsiveness is all about.<br><br>Progressive Enhancement<br><br>The "JavaScript-enabled" debate is so '90s. We need to optimize for accessibility and indexability (i.e. SEO) anyway. Claiming that JavaScript is required for Web apps and, thus, that there is no real need to pre-render HTML is fair (because SEO is usually not or less important for apps). But because we are going responsive, we will inherently pay a lot attention to mobile and, thus, to performance as well. This is why we are betting heavily on progressive enhancement.<br><br>Responsive Web Design<br><br>RWD has mostly to do with not knowing the screen's width. We have multiple tools to work with, such as media queries, relative units and responsive images. No matter how wonderful RWD is conceptually, some technical issues still need to be solved.<br><br><img src="" alt="start-image_mini" width="500" height="281" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-136814"/>1<br><br>Not many big websites have gone truly responsive since The Boston Globe132. (Image credits: Antoine Lefeuvre3)<br><br>Client-Side Solutions<br><br>In the end, RWD is mostly about client-side solutions. Assuming that the server basically sends the same initial document and resources (images, CSS and JavaScript) to every device, any responsive measures will be taken on the client, such as:<br><br>applying specific styles through media queries;<br><br>using (i.e. polyfilling) &lt;picture&gt; or @srcset to get responsive images;<br><br>loading additional content.<br><br>Some of the issues surrounding RWD today are the following:<br><br>Responsive images haven't been standardized.<br><br>Devices still load the CSS behind media queries that they never use.<br><br>We lack (browser-supported) responsive layout systems (think flexbox, grid, regions, template).<br><br>We lack element queries.<br><br>Server-Side Solutions: Responsive Content<br><br>Imagine that these challenges (such as images not being responsive and CSS loading unnecessarily) were solved on all devices and in all browsers, and that we didn't have to resort to hacks or polyfills in the client. This would transfer some of the load from the client to the server (for instance, the CMS would have more control over responsive images).<br><br>But we would still face the issue of responsive content. Although many believe that the constraints of mobile help us to focus, to write better content and to build better designs, sometimes it's simply not enough. This is where server-side solutions such as RESS4 and HTTP Client Hints5 come in. Basically, by knowing the device's constraints and features up front, we can serve a different and optimized template to it.<br><br>Assuming we want to COPE, DRY and KISS and stuff, I think it comes down to where you want to draw the line here: the more important that performance and content tailored to each device is, the more necessary server-side assistance becomes. But we also have to bet on user-agent detection and on content negation. I'd say that this is a big threshold, but your mileage may vary. In any case, I can see content-focused websites getting there sooner than Web apps.<br><br>Having said that, I am focusing on RWAs in this article without resorting to server-side solutions.<br><br>Responsive Behavior<br><br>RWD is clearly about layout and design, but we will also have to focus on responsive behavior. It is what makes applications different from websites. Fluid grids and responsive images are great, but once we start talking about Web applications, we also have to be responsive in loading modules according to screen size or device capability (i.e. pretty much media queries for JavaScript).<br><br>For instance, an application might require GPS to be usable. Or it might contain a large interactive table that just doesn't cut it on a small screen. And we simply can't set display: none on all of these things, nor can we build everything twice.<br><br>We clearly need more.<br><br>Part 2: Building RWAs<br><br>To quickly recap, our fundamental concepts are:<br><br>progressive enhancement,<br><br>responsive design,<br><br>responsive behavior.<br><br>Fully armed, we will now look into a way to build responsive, context-aware applications. We'll do this by declaratively specifying modules, conditions for loading modules, and extended modules or variants, based on feature detection and media queries. Then, we'll dig deeper into the mechanics of dependency injection to see how all of this can be implemented.<br><br>Declarative Module Injection<br><br>We'll start off by applying the concepts of progressive enhancement and mobile first, and create a common set of HTML, CSS and JavaScript for all devices. Later, we'll progressively enhance the application based on content, screen size, device features, etc. The foundation is always plain HTML. Consider this fragment:<br><br>&lt;div data-module="myModule"&gt;&#13;<br><br>&lt;p&gt;Pre-rendered content&lt;/p&gt;&#13;<br><br>&lt;/div&gt;&#13;<br><br>Let's assume we have some logic to query the data-module attribute in our document, to load up the referenced application module (myModule) and then to attach it to that element. Basically, we would be adding behavior that targets a particular fragment in the document.<br><br>This is our first step in making a Web application responsive: progressive module injection. Also, note that we could easily attach multiple modules to a single page in this way.<br><br>Conditional Module Injection<br><br>Sometimes we want to load a module only if a certain condition is met — for instance, when the device has a particular feature, such as touch or GPS:<br><br>&lt;div data-module="find/my/dog" data-condition="gps"&gt;&#13;<br><br>&lt;p&gt;Pre-rendered fallback content if GPS is unavailable.&lt;/p&gt;&#13;<br><br>&lt;/div&gt;&#13;<br><br>This will load the find/my/dog module only if the geolocation API is available.<br><br>Note: For the smallest footprint possible, we'll simply use our own feature detection for now. (Really, we're just checking for 'geolocation' in navigator.) Later, we might need more robust detection and so delegate this task to a tool such as Modernizr or Has.js (and possibly PhoneGap in hybrid mode).<br><br>Extended Module Injection<br><br>What if we want to load variants of a module based on media queries? Take this syntax:<br><br>&lt;div data-module="myModule" data-variant="large"&gt;&#13;<br><br>&lt;p&gt;Pre-rendered content&lt;/p&gt;&#13;<br><br>&lt;/div&gt;&#13;<br><br>This will load myModule on small screens and myModule/large on large screens.<br><br>For brevity, this single attribute contains the condition and the location of the variant (by convention). Programmatically, you could go mobile first and have the latter extend from the former (or separated modules, or even the other way around). This can be decided case by case.<br><br>Media Queries<br><br>Of course, we couldn't call this responsive if it wasn't actually driven by media queries. Consider this CSS:<br><br>@media all and (min-width: 45em) &#13;<br><br>body:after &#13;<br><br>content: 'large';&#13;<br><br>display: none;&#13;<br><br>&#13;<br><br>&#13;<br><br>Then, from JavaScript this value can be read6:<br><br>var size = window.getComputedStyle(document.body,':after').getPropertyValue('content');&#13;<br><br>And this is why we can decide to load the myModule/large module from the last example if size === "large", and load myModule otherwise. Being able to conditionally not load a module at all is useful, too:<br><br>&lt;div data-module="myModule" data-condition="!small"&gt;&#13;<br><br>&lt;p&gt;Pre-rendered content&lt;/p&gt;&#13;<br><br>&lt;/div&gt;&#13;<br><br>There might be cases for media queries inside module declarations:<br><br>&lt;div data-module="myModule" data-matchMedia="min-width: 800px"&gt;&#13;<br><br>&lt;p&gt;Pre-rendered content&lt;/p&gt;&#13;<br><br>&lt;/div&gt;&#13;<br><br>Here we can use the window.matchMedia() API (a polyfill7 is available). I normally wouldn't recommend doing this because it's not very maintainable. Following breakpoints as set in CSS seems logical (because page layout probably dictates which modules to show or hide anyway). But obviously it depends on the situation. Targeted element queries8 may also prove useful:<br><br>&lt;div data-module="myModule" data-matchMediaElement="(min-width: 600px)"&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&#13;<br><br><img style="float:right;margin:10px;border:none;" src="" width="372" /><br><br>Please note that the names of the attributes used here represent only an example, a basic implementation. They're supposed to clarify the idea. In a real-world scenario, it might be wise to, for example, namespace the attributes, to allow for multiple modules and/or conditions, and so on.<br><br>Device Orientation<br><br>Take special care with device orientation. We don't want to load a different module when the device is rotated. So, the module itself should be responsive, and the page's layout might need to accommodate for this.<br><br>Connecting The Dots<br><br>The concept of responsive behavior allows for a great deal of flexibility in how applications are designed and built. We will now look into where those "modules" come in, how they relate to application structure, and how this module injection might actually work.<br><br>Applications and Modules<br><br>We can think of a client-side application as a group of application modules that are built with low-level modules. As an example, we might have User and Message models and a MessageDetail view to compose an Inbox application module, which is part of an entire email client application. The details of implementation, such as the module format to be used (for example, AMD, CommonJS or the "revealing module" pattern), are not important here. Also, defining things this way doesn't mean we can't have a bunch of mini-apps on a single page. On the other hand, I have found this approach to scale well to applications of any size.<br><br>A Common Scenario<br><br>An approach I see a lot is to put something like &lt;div id="container"&gt; in the HTML, and then load a bunch of JavaScript that uses that element as a hook to append layouts or views. For a single application on a single page, this works fine, but in my experience it doesn't scale well:<br><br>Application modules are not very reusable because they rely on a particular element to be present.<br><br>When multiple applications or application modules are to be instantiated on a single page, they all need their own particular element, further increasing complexity.<br><br>To solve these issues, instead of letting application modules control themselves, what about making them more reusable by providing the element they should attach to? Additionally, we don't need to know which modules must be loaded up front; we will do that dynamically. Let's see how things come together using powerful patterns such as Dependency Injection (DI) and Inversion of Control (IOC).<br><br>Dependency Injection<br><br>You might have wondered how myModule actually gets loaded and instantiated.<br><br>Loading the dependency is pretty easy. For instance, take the string from the data-module attribute (myModule), and have a module loader fetch the myModule.js script.<br><br>Let's assume we are using AMD or CommonJS (either of which I highly recommended) and that the module exports something (say, its public API). Let's also assume that this is some kind of constructor that can be instantiated. We don't know how to instantiate it because we don't know exactly what it is up front. Should we instantiate it using new? What arguments should be passed? Is it a native JavaScript constructor function or a Backbone view or something completely different? Can we make sure the module attaches itself to the DOM element that we provide it with?<br><br>We have a couple of possible approaches here. A simple one is to always expect the same exported value — such as a Backbone view. It's simple but might be enough. It would come down to this (using AMD and a Backbone view):<br><br>var moduleNode = document.querySelector('[data-module]'),&#13;<br><br>moduleName = node.getAttribute('data-module');&#13;<br><br>&#13;<br><br>require([moduleName], function(MyBackBoneView) &#13;<br><br>new MyBackBoneView(&#13;<br><br>el: moduleNode&#13;<br><br>);&#13;<br><br>)&#13;<br><br>That's the gist of it. It works fine, but there are even better ways to apply this pattern of dependency injection.<br><br>IOC Containers<br><br>Let's take a library such as the excellent wire.js library by cujoJS9. An important concept in wire.js is "wire specs," which essentially are IOC containers. It performs the actual instantiation of the application modules based on a declarative specification. Going this route, the data-module should reference a wire spec (instead of a module) that describes what module to load and how to instantiate it, allowing for practically any type of module. Now, all we need to do is pass the reference to the spec and the viewNode to wire.js. We can simply define this:<br><br>wire([specName, viewNode: moduleNode ]);&#13;<br><br>Much better. We let wire.js do all of the hard work. Besides, wire has a ton of other features.<br><br>In summary, we can say that our declarative composition in HTML (&lt;div data-module=""&gt;) is parsed by the composer, and consults the advisor about whether the module should be loaded (data-condition) and which module to load (data-module or data-variant), so that the dependency injector (DI, wire.js) can load and apply the correct spec and application module:<br><br><img src="" alt="Declarative Composition" width="534" height="142" class="alignnone size-full wp-image-136788"/>10<br><br>Detections for screen size and device features that are used to build responsive applications are sometimes implemented deep inside application logic. This responsibility should be laid elsewhere, decoupled more from the particular applications. We are already doing our (responsive) layout composition with HTML and CSS, so responsive applications fit in naturally. You could think of the HTML as an IOC container to compose applications.<br><br>You might not like to put (even) more information in the HTML. And honestly, I don't like it at all. But it's the price to pay for optimized performance when scaling up. Otherwise, we would have to make another request to find out whether and which module to load, which defeats the purpose.<br><br>Wrapping Up<br><br>I think the combination of declarative application composition, responsive module loading and module extension opens up a boatload of options. It gives you a lot of freedom to implement application modules the way you want, while supporting a high level of performance, maintainability and software design.<br><br>Performance and Build<br><br>Sometimes RWD actually decreases the performance of a website when implemented superficially (such as by simply adding some media queries or extra JavaScript). But for RWA, performance is actually what drives the responsive injection of modules or variants of modules. In the spirit of mobile first, load only what is required (and enhance from there).<br><br><img style="float:left;margin:10px;border:none;" src="" width="319" /><br><br>Looking at the build process to minify and optimize applications, we can see that the challenge lies in finding the right approach to optimize either for a single application or for reusable application modules across multiple pages or contexts. In the former case, concatenating all resources into a single JavaScript file is probably best. In the latter case, concatenating resources into a separate shared core file and then packaging application modules into separate files is a sound approach.<br><br>A Scalable Approach<br><br>Responsive behavior and complete RWAs are powerful in a lot of scenarios, and they can be implemented using various patterns. We have only scratched the surface. But technically and conceptually, the approach is highly scalable. Let's look at some example scenarios and patterns:<br><br>Sprinkle bits of behavior onto static content websites.<br><br>Serve widgets in a portal-like environment (think a dashboard, iGoogle or Netvibes). Load a single widget on a small screen, and enable more as screen resolution allows.<br><br>Compose context-aware applications in HTML using reusable and responsive application modules.<br><br>In general, the point is to maximize portability and reach by building on proven concepts to run applications on multiple platforms and environments.<br><br>Future-Proof and Portable<br><br>Some of the major advantages of building applications in HTML5 is that they're future-proof and portable. Write HTML5 today and your efforts won't be obsolete tomorrow. The list of platforms and environments where HTML5-powered applications run keeps growing rapidly:<br><br>As regular Web applications in browsers;<br><br>As hybrid applications on mobile platforms, powered by Apache Cordova (see note below):<br><br>iOS,<br><br>Android,<br><br>Windows Phone,<br><br>BlackBerry;<br><br>As Open Web Apps (OWA), currently only in Firefox OS;<br><br>As desktop applications (such as those packaged by the Sencha Desktop Packager):<br><br>Note: Tools such as Adobe PhoneGap Build, IBM Worklight and Telerik's Icenium all use Apache Cordova APIs to access native device functionality.<br><br>Demo<br><br>You might want to dive into some code or see things in action. That's why I created a responsive Web apps11 repository on GitHub, which also serves as a working demo12.<br><br>Conclusion<br><br>Honestly, not many big websites (let alone true Web applications) have gone truly responsive since The Boston Globe132. However, looking at deciding factors such as cost, distribution, reach, portability and auto-updating, RWAs are both a huge opportunity and a big challenge. It's only a matter of time before they become much more mainstream.<br><br>We are still looking for ways to get there, and we've covered just one approach to building RWAs here. In any case, declarative composition for responsive applications is quite powerful and could serve as a solid starting point.<br><br>(al) (ea)<br><br>1 http://cujojs.com10<br><br>?

Top 5 PHP Frameworks That You Should Be Aware About by Chintan Shah - 30 Jul 2015 17:19


[[html]]The offshore application development scenario has transmuted into frenzy due to the inception of PHP, a widely used open source scripting language especially suited to the building of dynamic web pages. PHP applications are generally found to be hosted on Linux servers and the functionality is similar to Windows Platform by Active Server Pages Technology. PHP frameworks are ideally suited to the objective of increasing programming efficiency. Here we discuss the top 5 frameworks that are in vogue today.<br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br><img style="float:left;margin:10px;border:none;" src="" width="267" /><br><br>1. Zend Framework: It is an open source, object oriented web application development framework that can be implemented with PHP5. Individual components to satisfy common requirements that arise in Offshore Software Development are available in Zend. Also theres the motivation to promote best practices in web application development in PHP.&#13;<br><br>2. Smarty Framework: It is also known as Template Engine and basically is construed to provide simplified development and deployment of web applications. Pure PHP Template Option and Template Inheritance make this a useful tool.&#13;<br><br>3. CakePHP: It provides rapid web application development and is an open source framework producing an extensive architecture for development, maintenance and deployment of applications.

Computers & Technology :: Anti ligature LCD Enclosures For Correctional facilities and Psychiatric Facilities - 30 Jul 2015 02:35


[[html]]With the progress of outdoor digital signage and the introduction of the flat screen TV into healthcare as well as jails, these delicate pieces of electronics have to be protected from the hostile environment they are in.<br><br>Some people think they can use a digital signage solution for this and how wrong they are!<br><br>Consider the development?<br><br>A worldwide maker of safeguarding LCD enclosures has made an anti ligature LCD enclosure or non loop-able Flat screen enclosures. The non loop-able LCD enclosure have been formulated through extensive input from psychiatric units to develop and supply a solution that defends both the patient and the TV set.<br><br>These new LCD enclosures block harm to the lcd tv and any other associated gadgets in the housing, by preventing un-authorised access and preventing people tampering or stealing the equipment. These are precisely designed for medical centers and hospitals. The design of the unit was formulated with input from many top authorities in the mental health sector and this is the preferred solution, these housings now facilitate any LCD or plamsa screen to be rolled out in to any mental health unit or psychiatric unit.<br><br>Non loop-able TV enclosure.<br><br>This is not your general flat panel lcd tv enclosure used in a factory or outdoors for digital signage; this is a high security unit that attributes a sound solution that will cope with the most vicious of attacks from the most desperate of individuals.<br><br>This can be those that are on death row, or mentally ill individuals in mental health units who self harm, this product protects the equipment and at the same time defends the patient from self harming.<br><br>Someone once told me, "any idiot can weld a box, but it is the exceptional components inside that make it more functional." This is why a non loop LCD housing are different from any other outdoor television housing, some even have patents pending on their design and these units are installed in facilities such as prisons and mental health units.<br><br>So what is the distinction between a digital signage enclosure and an anti ligature LCD enclosure?<br><br>The first difference is that the solution is indoors where as digital signage or passenger information systems are rolled out external.<br><br>The next difference is that the leading anti ligature LCD enclosure solution is manufactured from thicker material and is fitted with a much thicker window panel that has a rear support frame for additional support, should anything such as a stool be chucked at the screen.<br><br>The third major variation is that the locking mechanism on our non loop-able TV enclosure are not the conventional cam locks as fitted by some rivals. The locks used by the leading manufacturer of non loop LCD enclosures are high security locks and these are pick proof! Making accessibility to the TV screen very challenging unless you have authority to do so.<br><br>Now thinking about all the above points, protecting a LCD screen is a vital peice of digital signage that is located outdoors, these housings have to provide weatherproof protection without them a standard LCD screen or even commercial screen (that is not build for outdoor use) will be expensive to repair if not protected.<br><br>&#13;<br><br><a href=''></a><br><br>[[/html]] - Comments: 0

HTML5 growth graph can be leap down In mobile app market - Indianapolis Wordpress - 24 Jul 2015 20:33
