Remark is…

this week’s muse. (A weekly featured project/product that will make your short life better.)

You need to make a presentation. Don’t use a bloated, legacy presentation tool. Use a modern, browser based slide show creation tool that supports standards like html5 and css. One that lets you easily collaborate, share, and display on any civilized browser.

There are a bunch of html based presentation tools, but Remark is one of the most enjoyable to use.

You can click in the box and use left-right arrows to move through these slides which explain what Remark is and how to get started using it. Or visit the presentation in all its full sized glory.

The GitHub project page documents how to get started. For inspiration, check out some Remark based presentations:

The project page links to other sample presentations.

Flexible Height, Responsive, Sticky Footers

Your web page has a header, some content, and a footer. If the content isn’t vertically long enough to push the footer down, the footer ends up in the middle of the page – ugly! A lot of solutions use a fixed height footer, which is great until you load the page in a phone or a tablet.

I found a simple solution, and integrated it with Bootstrap.

If you need a responsive, flexible-height, sticky footer – check out my sticky-footer GitHub project.

Firefox: Not The Tab Groups!

I’m dismayed to see that tab-groups is scheduled to be removed from Firefox (announcement here). It’s one of my favorite Firefox features and a big reason I don’t use Chrome, the other being support for privacy in the Mozilla Manifesto. I always have a pile of tab-groups open:

The good news is that in the announcement, Mozilla includes a link to the new tab-groups add-on, which will work pretty much like the existing functionality. Install it. Live it. Get your tab-groups on!

Pro-Tip: Keep a list of your add-ons in a GitHub gist, for example
