  1. Simple Sweep-in News Scroller (CSS3/JS)

    I've recently been working on digital signage displays for a school (scheduled web pages displayed on 42" TV screens) so I thought I'd write a short blog post to show you the mechanics of how their news and updates are presented on the screens. It uses CSS3 animation for visual effects and a small JavaScript function to time the slides.

  4. Add 'Swipe Support' to your website (RWD CSS3 Any Content Slider demo)

    Let visitors 'feel' their way around the interactive areas of your website by adding support for native swipe gestures on touch devices. I'll be using my earlier RWD CSS3 Any Content Slider (JS auto-play) as a demo, but you can easily take away from this post to add touch gestures to your own apps... Need some other ideas?

    Website features that may benefit from a left or right swipe;
    - a content slider (progress back and forth between slides)
    - an image gallery (progress ...
  5. RWD Cross-Fade Slideshow with Retina Images

    Want a simple, responsive cross-fading slideshow, with images that are lightweight AND retina-ready? You got it!


    Works in modern browsers and IE9+ (no fade effect in IE9). IE8 users just see a static image - but you can make IE8 act like IE9 with some CSS mods (see comments)

    This post covers 2 topics that can be used separately OR combined. First up... the slideshow. ...
