Fast & Agile YouTube Embed – Responsive iFrame load delay with jQuery

This code is an alternative to the traditional YouTube <iframe> embed. It will reduce the downloads of each embeded video by about 90% and have them resize responsively to all screen widths. It is made with jQuery, HTML, and CSS.

Simple Responsive Table Solution for Mobile using jQuery

So far I’ve found all the proposed solutions for dealing with wide tables on mobile to be a bit cumbersome and just not that great. Then I had the idea of wrapping the table in a div and just using overflow to make it scroll sideways without breaking the layout.

Replace checkbox inputs with “mobile style” toggle switches using jquery and css

So as the world gets more and more mobile people are getting used to seeing the toggle switches seen on iPhone/iOS and Android user interfaces.

While there are a number of opinions in the community on when we should drop support and how we should encourage users to upgrade, the (sad) fact is that (as of this writing) roughly 25% of the world is still using it.

Making better Forms: Clickable text for Radio Button and Checkbox Fields

I’ve never been a big fan of building web forms, and I don’t know many people who are. However, the fact of the matter is that almost every website has a few forms, and these forms play a key roll in the user experience.  Larger websites have huge, complex forms, that we as web developers […]
