If you haven’t heard, headless Chrome is now A Thing™. A few days ago I wrote a post on how to use Headless Chrome to grab some screenshots from the command line, using a dab o’node and a healthy dose of Promises. Well, after a little more fiddling with it, I’ve got a version 2.0
One of the things that front-end and back-end developers alike loathe is the dreaded scenario where a content author wants to be able to add their own styles to content. No, not set a skin or theme to the content. They insist that an <h1> be any of 16+ million colors. The <img> should have
It’s that time of year again; the time of the year when the year ends. Sure, I could reflect on it, like I did for 2014. But, ehh, I’ve done that in years-passed. This time, I’d like to rate it. You know, like a review. Like an Amazon review or something. And I like writing
We’ve all been there. It’s 2:00 in the afternoon. You need to pick up your kids from school. But, when you look at a component in Tridion’s Experience Manager (XPM / Site Edit), it’s broken. WTF! You’re not a front-end guy. You’re an architect. What do you do?
The world of front-end development is changing at a lightning fast pace. It’s hard enough for a front-end developer to keep up. So, how should a Tridion architect or general back-end developer stay “in the know” about the world of front-end development? Let me share with you what I’ve been doing in 2016 that I
Recently, Tanner Brine made the case that Tridion’s Structure Group icons are pink. And he declared his results conclusive. I’m here to say, “no they aren’t”. 1
So, you’re a front-end developer. You’re trying to learn about Tridion and how it affects your life. Maybe you’ve met some Tridion architects you want to impress. Maybe you’ve aggravated them, but you’ve run out of whisky. Even after my last post on schemas, you still feel like there’s more to learn. Well, you’re right.
You’re a front-end developer. You’re writing for a component template. You hand off HTML for a back-end developer to write a view. The back-end developer looks at it, goes cross-eyed and starts muttering to himself. You explain it. He says, “yeah, Tridion can’t do that.” You read my last post; you’d know that there’s a
So, you’re a front-end developer, eh? And you’ve been told that you’ll be writing code, and that it’ll be moved into a Content Management System. Called Tridion. And you can’t find out where to download it because there’s not a version on Github. There’s some random blogs out there, a Stack Exchange, but it all
