The new year 2018 is here. If we look at the progress in web development five years ago, it’s totally different from what we have today. Today there are new methods, tools, and even a whole new paradigm that changes the way we build websites today – and VirtualDOM is one of them. DOM (Document Object Model) is a tree model that defines how a website is structured. Selecting, traversing, and manipulating the DOM could be a very expensive opreration and may hamper your site’s rendering performance.
“Headless CMS” is gaining much attention these days. In a nutshell, “headless CMS” does not deal with the front-end; the CMS only exposes the content usually in a form of RESTful API while the developers may use whatever they prefer to render the content. With the increasing popularity of this practice, new frameworks arise to set it up and running quickly. So, in this round up, I’ve put together a few of these frameworks along with some other helpful tools that are worth checking out.
This month Fresh Resouces is going to be a bit different than the previous months. We, web developers, are making a living in a fast-changing industry, and I’ve seen a lot of announcements from some of the biggest tech companies such as Google, Microsoft, Firefox, and PHP, which will change the way we build the web. In this installment, half of our list is going to be about these announcements. So, be ready to say hello to the future!
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
