  • Roll.js a tiny library to help keep track of position, scrolling, and pagination.
  • atvImg (where atvImg stands for AppleTV Image)—a tiny plain vanilla javascript parallax library by Drew Wilson.
  • Notie.js, clean and simple notification plugin (alert/growl style) for javascript, with no dependencies.
  • I’ve been already writing this so called “Classsy CSS” to a certain extent but this article really completes the picture to me: Classsy CSS
  • The Cost of Frameworks on mobile devices—a sober performance analysis in favour of coding apps in vanilla javascript.

  • Turo might come in handy when renting car abroad.
