TAG | JQuery
Do you have pages that are very long and you’re not sure if the user even reaches that far down to discover all of it? Do you want a statistic of how deep users are actually scrolling down your page?
Using Google Analytics Event Tracking this can be quite simple so I wrote a small jQuery plugin.
A few months ago we launched this app already but it got wiped again. Now after some refactoring and redesigning on our side and after some changes on the Facebook side (event creation no longer spawns a status update!) the app is live again still powered by Symfony2.
In web development you often have to deal with lists of things. These things often have attributes like color, size and shape which users want to be able to filter.
Often this filtering is expansive as each round trip forces new and complex database actions. But in some cases you can avoid those altogether.
However the shift of mind you have to perform is quite big.
Now after this long absence – and with only a few jQuery experiments in the meantime – I got back to it and I feel like a bloody beginner again.
Next year I will be starting on a new project which could be awesome. The plan is to roll it out in several countries and languages and to keep it skinnable to some extend. The site itself will be editorial for the best part but with the participation of its community.
I’m not going to tell more about the project itself but I present the current technology setup I am thinking about which will very likely be reflected in next years posts. Maybe you can add some experiences and thoughts?
End of last week and this Monday I finally had a chance to do what I planned for quite some time now. I refactored parts of gjPositionsPlugin.
The result of this is the second beta version with the following changes.
