AppCache Scope Restricted

January 21st, 2020

The Application Cache (AppCache) specification has been deprecated since December 2016 and in Chrome starting in version 79. In Chrome 70, AppCache was removed from insecure contexts. We plan to remove AppCache in Chrome 82. Prior to AppCache’s removal in Chrome 82, we’re announcing a security fix that introduces the concept of a manifest scope….

The Best Color Functions in CSS?

January 20th, 2020

I’ve said before that HSL is the best color format we have. Most of us aren’t like David DeSandro, who can read hex codes. HSL(a) is Hue, Saturation, Lightness, and alpha, if we need it. hsl(120, 100%, 40%) Hue isn’t intuitive, but it’s not that weird. You take a trip around the color wheel from…

Pavithra Kodmad asked people for recommendations on what they thought were some of the most timeless articles about web development that have changed their perspective in some way. Fun! I’m gonna scour the thread and link up my favorites (that are actually articles, although not all of them are super directly related to web dev)….

Campus London calling: apply for Women Founders residency

January 17th, 2020

Only nine percent of C-level positions—and six percent of CEOs—at European startups are women. Of all the funds raised by European venture capital-backed companies in 2018, a staggering 93 percent went to all-male founding teams. In order to combat this, last year Google for Startups introduced the first Women Founders Residency at our Campus in…

NetNewsWire and Feedbin

January 16th, 2020

NetNewsWire is one of the classic RSS apps, debuting in 2002. I was pretty stoked when it went 5.0 and was open-sourced in August 2019! You can snag it right here. (Sorry, Mac only.) It’s super nice, is fast, and looks great. It has just the right features. But… I thought, at least at first,…

Thinking Through Styling Options for Web Components

January 16th, 2020

Where do you put styles in web components? I’m assuming that we’re using the Shadow DOM here as, to me, that’s one of the big draws of a web component: a platform thing that is a uniquely powerful thing the platform can do. So this is about defining styles for a web component in a…
