  1. Messing with Javascript

    Hey all,
    I've been fiddling with JavaScript and decided to share a neat little thing (its completely useless).

    Finished Code
    Code:
    console.log(+[[-~[]<<~[]][+[]]+[]][+[]][++[[]][+[]]+[+[]]]); //Prints 8
    Now for the break down -

    Pre-note - I use this function while playing with variables. It outputs the value and type of a variable. (The counter is to force the developer console to display each seperately)
    Code:
    var counter = 0;

  2. A Single-Page Application without Framework

    A Single-Page Application is a website that fits on a single page. All necessary code is retrieved with a single page load or dynamically loaded and added to the page as necessary. The page does not reload at any point in the process unless it is manually refreshed. This provides a more fluid user experience.
    SPA has been adopted by several javascript frameworks such as AngularJS, Ember.js, Meteor.js and ExtJS. But these frameworks are overkill in regards to what is needed for a SPA to function ...

  3. Another Youtube Gallery

    I know there's an excellent YouTube Video Gallery on DD. But I wanted a gallery that

    - makes it possible to put text at the top of the thumbnails and at the top of the videos themselves.

  4. Not My Type... : )

    Yes, the tutorial is still coming. It's big. It's in progress.

    I read this recently and was intrigued. Don't know if anyone else would care or not ...

    The author, nikic, does a great job summarizing the difficulties and potential benefits of type hinting, as well as giving a good explanation as to why PHP's implementation is incomplete.

  5. Before You Start: the basics, for PHP in particular and for programming in general

    I wanted to take a few moments to talk about some of "the basics" that are all-to-often glossed over...

    A Matter of Style

    In general, I find that most PHP programmers fall into one of three main programming styles:
    • procedural: a simple ordered set of instructions, nested if's/ else's, etc.
    • functional: functions are little code containers that you can call on when needed. You [usually] give them arguments, they [usually] return values to you.
    • object-oriented:
