Dynamically Creating Bootstrap Popovers With Javascript

Dynamically Create Bootstrap Popovers with Javascript

Bootstrap includes a popover library that lets developers easily create styled messages that can be displayed to users by triggering some javascript. I extended that functionality a little bit so that users can close the popover messages by clicking on them, and developers can dynamically create popover messages with a simple function call.

Make the jump to check out the enhanced bootstrap popovers!

    Works great! Thanks again.

    How do I make it so that it doesn't close when I click on the popover.

Automate Your Website Build With Grunt

posted Thursday, October 16th 2014 at 8:16 AM by

Grunt Logo

I've been doing a lot of website work lately, lots of which includes repetitive tasks like minifying CSS and Javascript assets after making changes. Which is an inefficient use of time and can lead to mistakes. And I'm only one guy, having a team of developers all trying to manage the same repetitive tasks and get a consistent, high quality product gets to be a headache unless you use some kind of automation.

Here's how to automate those tasks using Grunt...

Rise of the Machines! A Spam Story

posted Monday, October 6th 2014 at 8:14 AM by

Terminator 2: Spam Day
The Skynet Funding Bill is passed. The system goes on-line August 4th, 1997. Human decisions are removed from strategic defense. Skynet begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug.

It was bound to happen sooner or later, spam bots hitting the comment forms over and over! I was getting around 2,000 comment submissions per day from these friendly robots bent on world domination.

I could reduce it with one of those clunky off the shelf captchas, but lets face it, they aren't without their problems either, especially...

Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures Game Simulator by Adam Konieska

Remember when I told you how cool the X-Wing Miniatures game was? Yeah, its pretty cool. A few friends and I are really into it, but how do you build the best squad? Well, I wrote a bit of code that's more than just a squad builder, it actually simulates the game so you can gauge the effectiveness of different builds! More after the jump...

    Very cool looking. Any plans to work on this some more?

    FYI I had to remove the fade div from the game log so that I could scroll the log back. On chrome OS X

      Hey Zack, glad you liked it!

      I'd love to finish it, but life keeps getting in the way and I keep running out of time. :-( I'll definitely post updates of the progress I make.

jQuery Hover Box

posted Thursday, January 10th 2013 at 8:21 AM by

Recently I needed to use a tool tip style hovering box that would display a lot of information. I found some great libraries online that would display a div tag when the user hovered over a specific element. That was pretty awesome, I thought. Until I tried it out and realized that if the element the user was hovering over was close to the edge of the screen, the hover box would either be cut off or not displayed at all! The user deserves better...

Responsive is Neat, but Where is the Full Version?

posted Tuesday, June 26th 2012 at 10:12 AM by

Responsive web design is a really exciting solution to display issues across multiple screen sizes. Which is great! It provides a framework to easily maintain content and layouts between both mobile and desktop versions of a website. But a responsive design is not without a few concerns when some users want to see the full site rather than be forced to use a mobile version.

Reduce Wait Times, Preload Your Images

posted Wednesday, May 23rd 2012 at 2:56 AM by

Maybe you have a photo gallery, a jQuery animation, or just a simple image roll-over navigation. Whatever the case, don't make your users wait for your images to load! Any time you have large images in a photo gallery or images that aren't loaded when the page loads (navigational roll-overs, I'm looking at you), you should use an image preloader to ensure the images are ready to go when the user requests them. Here are a few techniques you can use to make sure your images are ready to go when they're needed.
