A useful tool to have

Postby mapleleaf » Tue Oct 19, 2010 10:21 pm

Hi Folks

With the impending support by WeBuilder for html5, a very useful tool to have in/for web development is Modernizr.

Below is an expert from their documentation page
Modernizr is a small JavaScript library that detects the availability of native implementations for next-generation web technologies. These technologies are new features that stem from the ongoing HTML 5 and CSS3 specifications. Many of these features are already implemented in at least one major browser (most of them in two or more), and what Modernizr does is, very simply, tell you whether the current browser has this feature natively implemented or not.

With this knowledge that Modernizr gives you, you can take advantage of these new features in the browsers that can render or utilize them, and still have easy and reliable means of creating fallbackā€”should you choose toā€”for the browsers that cannot.

You can find more about Modernizr at the following URI http://www.modernizr.com/docs.
I am currently experimenting this utility(tool) waiting for WeBuilder to have support for html5 then go into full swing with it.

Perhaps, Karlis and others at Blumentals should look at this awesomme tool and make it part of WeBuilder.(just a thought in my head)
