Let’s get into some technical details about how a layout engine works. We assume that we have a tree of elements that comprise the UI.
Images require various sizing modes to fit in a responsive layout. Here we’ll look at the relationship between the element and visual and the basic
In a distant memory I typed some text, pressed “Submit”, and had a blog post. Though simple, it lacked finesse; the articles lacked polish.
A box model describes how to measure an element for layout. It defines what size is and how it relates to the content, margin and
A good UI design must accommodate the various device formats and resolutions that users have. Element placement cannot be absolute, but rather be constrained and
Layout determines how children are positioned and sized within their parent element. There are three approaches to placing child elements within a parent: Additive: The
Devices have various physical resolutions and densities. One phone may be 10cm wide and have 800pixels across, while another may be 8cm wide and have
I chose Rust as the language for the Botters of the Galaxy contest. My code structure was suitable enough to get me to the
I made it to the top Legendary League in a bot programming contest. This is the first such competition I’ve done, with a language, Rust,
Elements have either a natural size, a dependent size, or combination of the two. The size of an element influences its placement. The user and
Read Update #1 Syntax Error I addressed two problems since last update: A bad error message, and an image loading error. The bad error
I fixed several issues with the vector drawing in Fuse. A few of them seemed somewhat obvious, so as with all such issues, I wonder
I’ve started a journey to make Leaf more visual. You may have seen some of my videos about complexity, complete with shaky mouse drawn
I’ve spent the last several days unravelling the mystery of the Each feature in Fuse. It’s a powerhouse feature that has managed to accumulate a
While writing some error handling helpers, during my algorithm stream, I encountered a defect. It’s a tricky one dealing with the passing of shared arguments
Working on a defect in Leaf I had a question: should function arguments be reassignable within a function? Are they just like local variables, or
I’ve been asking interviewees, over at interviewing.io, to write a simulation of a two-player card game. It’s an engaging question, revealing a lot about their
We hear it often, “global variables are bad, avoid using them!” But is this actually good advice? Simplified blanket statements are already a bit suspicious,
You’ve heard the term, you’ve probably even used them, but what exactly is a closure? It’s a combination of data and code that have become
You head over to your favourite link site and click one of the pictures — or let’s be honest, you ctrl+click all the pictures. Your
Yesterday I finished a rather simple Kata from Codewars: the sum of a sequence of numbers. It was straight forward to implement, but I felt
Pair programming feels like a lingering ghost. Its adherents proclaim it to be the best approach to coding while the rest of us just continue
