“Silky Smooth Hopping” is a term coined by Paul Irish at the HTML5DevConf held by marakana on November 5th, 2012. It’s a way to login via SSH painlessly and with ease. You’ll need to know what the Terminal is before you begin, and have some knowledge of basic commands (e.g. listing directories, viewing file contents, etcetera). You’ll also need to know how to create a public SSH key with a service such as Github. What we’re gonna do is really not that difficult –and honestly, I’m no Terminal whiz either so I’ll make sure to hold your hand every step of the way.
In the spirit of discovery and process once again, I set out to ask 1 front–end developer to share his procedure when making stuff for the Web on a Non–Mac machine including a little share from myself for Windows scenarios. We’ll start with the initial set up of the local environment and end with deploying the final product. A special thanks to @remybach for opening up the curtain and sharing his secrets on Ubuntu.
Lately I’ve been curious about units used in #RWD –mostly rems I have to admit. Yes, discussing the correct or preferred values to use in #RWD is a topic that definitely makes me fall asleep, but instead of writing the same post about why ems are good for sizing in #RWD, I thought I would look at why

pt. This surely goes for you nasty pixels too, but I’ll keep it to the
pt for today –no pun intended.
In order to run Yeoman properly you’ll require a few dependencies like Command Line Tools for Xcode, Homebrew, NodeJS, git, NodeJS, ruby, RubyGems, Compass, jpegtran, optipng, yeoman global npm module and the most important puzzle piece and part of today’s discussion; PhantomJS.
In the spirit of discovery and process, I set out to ask 3 front–end developers to share their procedures when making stuff for the Web. We’ll start with the initial set up of their local development environment and end with deploying the final product. A special thanks to @andyunleash, @zakkain and @ChrisVanPatten for opening up the curtain and sharing their secrets.
Damn! I’m hard coding all the project imagery assets within my stylesheets. What if the URL to those image assets change? This is where Compass will come to the rescue.
The following discussion assumes you like to build blank WordPress themes. If you’re using a child theme then this discussion may not be your cup of tea; unless you like to customize stuff and if so, please read on.
In the beginning…
I’d like to take a stroll with you down
wp_nav_menu lane. What’s
wp_nav_menu? Well, in a nutshell it’s a way to trigger WordPress’ custom menu functionality. You can see this option from your WordPress admin dashboard under Appearance > Menus.
