  • Passing Rulesets To Mixins In Less CSS

    Posted on Jun 6, 2014 at 8:42 AM

    You're very welcome. And it's getting a lot easier for people to use it. Less easier for people to make excuses for not using it. Simply dropping Grunt into an existing workflow can change a project's maintainability drastically. Keep it up, thanks for digging deeper!... read more »

  • Passing Rulesets To Mixins In Less CSS

    Posted on Jun 6, 2014 at 8:30 AM

    Ben, Thanks for doing this series on Less. Every single day I still find out many people choose to not use a pre-compiler for one reason or another. I think there needs to be more advocates of your caliber pushing the use of a pre-processor, especially LESS. Less is beautiful because it's easiest ... read more »

  • After 2013, I'm Looking Forward To 2014

    Posted on Jan 2, 2014 at 8:42 AM

    I think I speak for everyone when I say this; Ben, we believe in you, brother. I'm certain there isn't a day goes by while in active development in CFML, jQuery, etc. that you do not cross our minds from time to time. You mean a lot to us, keep up the good work. Don't sweat the small stuff. Take... read more »

  • ColdFusion 10 Beta - Closures And Function Expressions And Threads

    Posted on Oct 17, 2012 at 3:17 PM

    This is precisely what I just send you in an "Ask Ben", relating to FoundryCF's Event Emitter CFC and events in general... I also like the Emitter class syntax you used instead of using a CFC... In Railo 4 BETA,it would appear I can't use the "thread {}" within a function expre... read more »

  • Experimenting With GitHub Gist-Based Code Samples For My Blog

    @Ben, Would you be interested in posting your code snippet parser written in CFML that converts your blog entries into gists?... read more »

  • Experimenting With GitHub Gist-Based Code Samples For My Blog

    Posted on Jul 25, 2012 at 9:11 AM

    @Ben, I like the idea of taking embedded code snippets of existing or new blog posts and automatically sending / creating gists based off of those posts. It amazes me that the world of bloggers have not been doing it in this way. On Wordpress, they convert pre-created gist links into embeds. I t... read more »

  • jQuery + ColdFusion 8 = Erotic And Magnetic Poetry

    Posted on Dec 6, 2011 at 12:43 PM

    @Ben, Is there not a way to make this save using Canvas / Javascript alone? I understand the point was to save to CF8... But I believe you can export to a PNG BASE64 URI using Javascript and save yourself the server processing? I'm trying to figure out how to do that... Any idea? Sincerely, Jos... read more »

    Thanks for posting this Ben. It's amazing all of the great new companies there are to make people like us not cringe at the thought of integration. This is Square, for developers. Great find!... read more »

  • Using jQuery As A Named Module In RequireJS

    Posted on Nov 16, 2011 at 11:19 AM

    Ben, As always - great post. I'm an avid reader, and a huge fan. I've been meaning to stop being lazy and begin using something like RequireJS before my new project I'm working on becomes unworkable... Just so intimidating to go down a new path... Hoping you inspire me to move forward.... read more »

  • Using An ArgumentCollection URL Parameter With ColdFusion Web Services

    Posted on Nov 11, 2010 at 11:26 AM

    So would this be similar to passing an a params arg to a JS function and dynamically creating getters / setters? Or would this even make sense to do in CF? I guess server-side code it wouldn't make much sense. I didn't read the article much... just saw it and thought of this. I'll read it in a fe... read more »
