GLMap Framework

glmap

GLMap is a lightweight offline map component with a simple mechanism of integrating into any iOS or Android application.

With the GLMap framework, map data is prepared on CPU and is rendered directly on GPU using OpenGL ES 2.0. This allows each processor to do the job it does best. By splitting up data processing, we save CPU capacity for other tasks.

Vectors generated from OpenStreetMap data.

Responsible Social Share Links

responsible-social-share-links

Social share scripts are convenient and easy to copy & paste but rely on JavaScript and add additional overhead to your site, which means more HTTP requests and slower load times. Instead, use share links that don’t require you to load scripts for each social site.

Back to the basics: URLs and plain HTML (with a tad of VanillaJS on top to enhance the experience).

HTTPie (pronounced aych-tee-tee-pie) is a command line HTTP client. Its goal is to make CLI interaction with web services as human-friendly as possible. It provides a simple http command that allows for sending arbitrary HTTP requests using a simple and natural syntax, and displays colorized output. HTTPie can be used for testing, debugging, and generally interacting with HTTP servers.

Big Birdman

For your Oscar consideration: A veteran puppeteer, who plays an avian icon, battles his ego and attempts to find his way back to a certain furry and friendly street. This is ‘Big Birdman.’

Brilliant Birdman spoof!

CSS3 Grid By Example

grid-by-example

I have been writing and speaking about the CSS Grid Layout Module for some time now. In order to learn how Grid works I’ve put together lots of small examples, and I am publishing them here as a resource for anyone else interested in this emerging specification.

Great to see these all bundled up on one website.
