Hello, today I will show you how to quickly inline your font-face files inside a CSS file. The following example only explains the process for a woff file but the process is the same for all font-face formats: Here is a simple example: __CSS__ __HTML__ Credits go to the Twitter team and Sime Vidas for letting me know via [this tweet](https://twitter.com/simevidas/status/472541998252294145)...Read more
Well, the title is a bit misleading, you can use a GUI but you shouldn't do it without first knowing how the Git CLI (command line interface) actually works. I understand how difficult git can be (I've been there) (I'm pretty sure I'm still there) but if you start using the various GUI tools out there, you will almost certainly never understand how git works. I've seen a lot of my friends and colleagues do...Read more
As a web-developer using a terminal became a daily routine quite soon and after a while I realized that I had to start making a terminal setup for myself. What I was looking for was something that would help me raise my productivity by either avoiding various annoyances that I've encountered throughout the journey or by including tools that I didn't use before that would smoothen the road ahead. After a lot of digging for...Read more
Recently I had to use CSS3's calc() value for a website I was designing and it seemed ridiculous to include a whole library (Modernizr) for just 1 CSS property's value. So I decided to write a small script to detect if calc was supported by the browsers or not (and it seems like it's rather similar to Modernizr's way of detecting it).
So, here is the script: Now you can:...Read more
We all know and love JQuery's callback and since I love it so much I wanted to replicate when I started recreating [codemagic](https://github.com/varemenos/codemagic). It seems like it's rather easy to do, all you have to do is add another parameter named `callback` (you can name it whatever you want, I just prefer it this way) and after checking wether the parameter is a function, execute it before the end of the container function.
Here is an...Read more

In this blog-post/tutorial I will show you how to create a simple CSS3 animated loader by only using 1 HTML element. A couple of months ago a lets-create-css3-loaders trend was initiated in codepen with a lot of people trying to create impressive and functional CSS3 Loaders. So as a CSS3 enthusiast I accepted the challenge and created a couple of them ([#1](http://codepen.io/varemenos/pen/EeulL), [#2](http://codepen.io/varemenos/pen/oJLge)). Using one of these 2 creations I will be showing you how...Read more
It seems like there is no documentation for Dropplets' templates, so I did some digging and found the variables and functions that can be used for template development. __variables__: __functions__: __globals__: Those are the vars and functions returned via `get_defined_vars()` and `get_defined_functions()`. After a bit more digging into the dropplets' file system I've found some globals that are assigned by using `define()`...Read more
