  • Adding An ngRepeat List Delimiter In AngularJS

    Posted on Feb 25, 2013 at 9:34 AM

    Hi Ben, I really love your posts on angularjs. It seems that every time something new catches my eyes you either have just started looking into it or will start shortly after - Sometimes I even just wait with diving into the subject until after you have dug the hole a little deeper :) On a side not... read more »

  • jQuery Appends Multiple Elements Using Efficient Document Fragments

    Posted on Nov 7, 2011 at 10:30 AM

    @Ben, Yeah, your probably right - what ever solution you chose caching should be involved. I fail to see an HTML/Javascript app having a template usage that it would seriously effect your experience? I guess things like this is more of a problem when done server-side than client-side...... read more »

  • jQuery Appends Multiple Elements Using Efficient Document Fragments

    @Ben, Yeah, I thought as much. Do you know of any benchmarks on using 'jQuery', '.replace()', 'string concatenation' -based manipulation?... read more »

  • Using RequireJS For Asynchronous Script Loading And JavaScript Dependency Management

    Posted on Nov 1, 2011 at 9:03 PM

    Not being anywhere near expert on yepnope I understand it as a shortcut to conditional loading. instead of doing if(...) { require(...); }else{ require(...); } you can write: var hasAwsomeFeature = true; yepnope({ test:hasAwesomeFeature, yep: ['load.js','me.js'], nope: ['addAwesomeFeature.js'], ... read more »

  • jQuery Appends Multiple Elements Using Efficient Document Fragments

    Posted on Nov 1, 2011 at 8:32 PM

    Normally when I have to generate something simple like the list in your example I use $.map to create a array of strings and then follow up by $(...).append(array_of_strings.join()). Is the only reason for creating document fragments that you can manipulate them with jQuery? Or are there also other... read more »

    Hi Ben, First of, I really enjoy your blog. You have a great talent for diving into technical stuff and relay your findings in such a way that gets me excited and want to explore futher - thanks.

  • The Sexiest Thing A Woman Can Say In An Elevator

    Posted on Jul 5, 2011 at 3:47 PM

    However, if the man in the elevator suffered from low self esteem he might hear the sentence a bit different: "I'm definitely glad <strog>_I_ wore deodorant today." She could add a compliment about his choice of deodorant - who doesn't like to be told they smell great?... read more »

  • Seven Languages In Seven Weeks By Bruce Tate - What An Adventure

    Posted on Jan 29, 2011 at 3:10 AM

    @Ben ML is a fun(ctional) language to play around with and there are quite a few implementations of it. I haven't played around with Haskell at all, but to my understanding Haskell is a pure functional language where as ML has some blurry edges when it come to that. ML also shares similarities wi... read more »

    Thought I should give it a more serious try and then I remembered playing around with moscow ml some ~10 years ago... val list = ["Morten","Ben","The lot"] : string list; fun map (f, adj, nil) = nil | map (f, adj, h::t) = (f(h, adj)) :: map (f, adj, t); fun f... read more »

  • The jQuery Template Markup Language (JTML) Project

    Posted on Apr 29, 2010 at 2:01 AM

    My suggestions was not so much concerning syntax as it was features. <p>Error: <jtml:var onEmptyRMNode=p name=errmsg /></p> would be the same as <jtml:if test="!empty(errmsg)"> <p>Error: ${errmsg} /></p> </jtml:if> onEmptyRMNode points to a parent... read more »

  • The jQuery Template Markup Language (JTML) Project

    Posted on Apr 28, 2010 at 5:27 PM

    Hey Ben, great blog - been a follower for some months now. I got inspired by your markup language approach and have a few comments. How about writing variables like so <jtml:var name=variable /> instead of ${variable} I could see this syntax being extended like so <p>Error: <jtml:v... read more »
