Monthly Web Development Update 1/2019: Rethinking Habits And Finding Custom Solutions

What could be better than starting the new year with some new experiments? Today I figured it was time to rethink JavaScript tooling in one of my projects. And since we wrote everything in plain ECMAScript modules already, I thought it would be easy to serve them natively now and remove all the build and transpilation steps. Until I realized that — although we wrote most code ourselves — we have a couple of third-party dependencies in there and, of course, not all of them are ECMAScript modules.

HTML5 Input Types: Where Are They Now?

One of the stand-out headline features of HTML5 for many designers and developers was the addition of a number of new types of form input that could be used. For years, we’d been confined to using single-line text inputs (type="text") and laying on JavaScript and user instructions to try an accurately capture valid data of different types through that one unsophisticated field.
HTML5 brought with it new values of the type attribute that enabled us to be much more specific about the types of data we needed to capture through the field, with the promise being that the browser would then provide the interface and validation required to coerce the user into completing the field accurately.

How Improving Website Performance Can Help Save The Planet

You may not think about it often, but the Internet uses a colossal amount of electricity. This electricity needs to be produced somewhere. In most countries, this means the burning of fossil fuels. This, in turn, means that the Internet’s carbon footprint has grown to the point where it may have eclipsed global air travel, and this makes the Internet the largest coal-fired machine on Earth.
The Mozilla Internet Health Report 2018 states that — especially as the Internet expands into new territory — “sustainability should be a bigger priority.
