What do you think?

Free mockup tool

Just encountered and had a quick look at it. It was easy to use with slick interface, excellent graphics and nice export. There are enough basic elements to star with.

If you need to mockup something quickly, that’s the tool you’ll ever need.


Javascript MVC Frameworks – current state

Recently I read this interesting comparison of top 10 Javascript MVC frameworks. Short extract:

Framework UI bindings Composed views Presentation layer Plays with others
SproutCore 1.x
Javascript MVC
Google Web Toolkit
Google Closure

Having played with few of them, I personally tend to agree that Ember.js and Knockout.js are getting just a small step in front of the rest.

Any opinions?


Ever need to quickly find and access a particular javascript framework, tool, pattern, etc.?

Now we are armed with Microjs! Wonder how I lived without it before 🙂

The new Twitter Bootstrap v2

Today I’ve started a new website project for my wife’s new business. Well, new project, new technologies, so decided to have a go with most latest MVC 4 and EF 5.0, both still in beta. This part went very smoothly, quickly and easy. No glitches, compare to some troubles having in past with previous version of MVC/EF.

The new MVC 4 default theme is nice and cool too, but I decide to go a bit further and try to learn new Twitter Bootstrap. Doing some wee project for your wife’s business is just the right opportunity, isn’t it :)?

On the Bootstrap’s website, you can read following statement: “Simple and flexible HTML, CSS, and Javascript for popular user interface components and interactions”. I have found this is really simple and flexible.

In addition, I want to add: it’s beautiful and brilliantly easy to use! There’s also a NuGet package to add it to the MVC project.

Really, you have to try it yourself!
