scrollMonitor image/svg+xml

A simple and fast API to monitor elements as you scroll […] The scroll monitor was designed to be very fast. On each scroll event the DOM is only touched twice, once to find the document height and again to find the viewport top. No variables are declared, nor are any objects, arrays, or strings created. Watchers are very cheap. Create them liberally.

Another scroll monitor, this one looks quite efficient. The stress test demos are a nice touch.

Martin Splitt: Making games with JavaScript and Phaser.io – JS Kongress 2016 image/svg+xml

If you are familiar with JavaScript and want to learn how to make games with it, this is a talk for you.

This talk walks you through the necessary parts to build a game and shows you how Phaser helps you focus less on the nitty-gritty details and focus on gameplay and experimentation.

Phaser looks pretty neat, I’m definitely going to have a play with this.

CodeMirror image/svg+xml

CodeMirror is a versatile text editor implemented in JavaScript for the browser. It is specialized for editing code, and comes with a number of language modes and addons that implement more advanced editing functionality.

I came across this today whilst searching for some information about syntax highlighting. I haven’t got a use for it at the moment, but it looks like a nifty editor and I’d definitely like to have a play with it.

jQuery.mmenu, app look-alike menus with sliding submenus image/svg+xml

Looking for that true native app look and feel for your mobile menu? Stop searching, you found it!

No matter how large your nested menu structure is, everyone already is familiar with the sliding submenus used in native apps. Adding a fixed header, search field and subitem counters make navigating your menu even easier.

Looks like a solid app menu implementation. Also available as a WordPress plugin.

Dear JavaScript, image/svg+xml

Being a maintainer of a project with tens of thousands of users means you face a lot of criticism. It almost feels like you’re a politician at times. Some of it isn’t valid, but much of it is. Either way, the sad thing is that criticism is often communicated in an extremely negative fashion.

Apparently, the JavaScript community has its fair share of dicks. Who’d have guessed it? I’d imagine that finding a dick-free community would be like finding a piece of golden unicorn shit. Accept it, move on.
