Meta Refresh 2012

Web design could use some new ideas. We have the tech now.

HTML5 and CSS3 have very quickly moved from being tentative new standards to the base standards for every major desktop and mobile browser. HTML5 is now just HTML, a modular, living standard that no longer needs a version number.

Now that we are no longer fighting over platforms, it’s time to put the specs aside and revisit the construction of user interface: how do we raise the bar for stellar user interface on the web?

Meta Refresh is a follow-up to DocType HTML5 from 2010-11 and is a conference on web UI engineering.

Tower.js Full Stack Web Framework for Node.js and the Browser.

Submitted Mar 23, 2012

How ONLY javascript can be used to create Full Fledge Back end application.

Will make sure you wont write anything else other than Javascript to Create entire BACKEND Application.

Javascript Everywhere:
Backend: Node JS
Database: MongoDB (database)
Styling: Stylus
Tests: Jasmine
Tempting: CoffeeKup

Outline

Tower.js Built on top of Node’s Connect and Express, modeled after Ruby on Rails. Built for the client and server from the ground up.

Includes a database-agnostic ORM with browser (memory) and MongoDB support, modeled after ActiveRecord and Mongoid for Ruby. Includes a controller architecture that works the same on both the client and server, modeled after Rails. The routing API is pretty much exactly like Rails 3’s. Templates work on client and server as well (and you can swap in any template engine no problem). Includes asset pipeline that works just like Rails 3’s - minifies and gzips assets with an md5-hashed name for optimal browser caching, only if you so desire. And it includes a watcher that automatically injects javascripts and stylesheets into the browser as you develop. It solves a lot of our problems, hope it solves yours too.
