How to Grunt

Grunt: The JavaScript Task Runner

Introduction

I had the pleasure of attending the second day of jQueryTO this past weekend and had a great time.

It was pretty awesome to see the presentations given by people like Paul Irish, Tim Branyen and Derick Bailey. I've read a lot about the things they've done to try and advance the web and educate people, so it was pretty cool to see and hear them live. I saw Addy Osmani in the crowd, although I missed his keynote on the first day.

One presentation that got me itching to get back to my terminal window was Dan Heberden's presentation on Grunt.

Site Redesign

Inspired by Twitter's Bootstrap, I bring to you the new version of Pyjama Coder!

In addition to the CSS revamp, you will notice a few other things have changed.

  • the homepage now lists excerpts from up to 5 posts and is paginated
  • there is a sticky navigation bar at the top of the page
  • the old post listing has been moved to a blog page
  • the site is responsive for widths of: 480, 768, 980, 1200, and 1200+

There are also a few fun css additions.

Twitter Bootstrap v2 RTL Edition

Twitter Bootstrap

Recently, I've been playing around with Twitter Bootstrap and it's pretty amazing.

It is pretty full featured and contains a lot of useful components in addition to the basic grid and styling. It even comes with a spiffy icon set.

The Need for Right to Left

A site I've been working on requires the display to be right-to-left instead of left-to-right. Who knew there were people who read things backwards?
