Vertical alignment in CSS3: choosing your Responsive Design solution - New Toronto Group

Vertical alignment in CSS3: choosing your Responsive Design solution

| March 22th, 2016 by James McGeachie

If you're working in front-end of Web Development, chances are you've faced the frustrations of centering your content vertically at least once, maybe pulling out a few hairs in the process. The problem isn't just aligning on desktop, but also ensuring it remains that way on your mobile UI, or any other device. When your web design relies on that content being in the middle, then you have to get it to work consistently.

Custom Icon Fonts - New Toronto Group

Custom Icon Fonts

| February 25th, 2016 by Jordan McRae

We’ve recently been working on an AngularJS project where we need a wide range of icons in many different situations. We need them for buttons, accordions, dropdowns, inline with text, etc. So we had a large folder full of nicely constructed SVGs, but we needed an easy way to modify their size, color and positioning. We could just as easily add our SVG’s in our markup, but then we run into overcomplicating something that should be simple. We would run into situations where we need to define paths, tags with references for reusability, and so forth. All we need is an icon in our view with varying sizes and colours, so why not handle them the same way that we would handle our fonts with CSS? This is also a great way to have much more control over responsive design for both desktop and mobile UI.

IOT with the Intel Edison using Node.js - New Toronto Group

IOT with the Intel Edison using Node.js

| January 19th, 2016 by Sean Hopen

Since I last blogged about IOT I've had a chance to work with a new platform, the Intel Edison. Intel invited me to attend an Edison hackathon at Project: SPACES OWL , and on a whim I attended. I liked it so much I recommended it to a client and they decided to upgrade one of their products with it.  There are a lot of things I like about the Edison, in particular, a delightful experience with Node.js,…

Retooling for HTML5 Development [Part 1] - New Toronto Group

Retooling for HTML5 Development [Part 1]

| January 12th, 2016 by Rod Nolan

So the books are closed on 2015 and 2016 lies before us like a blank canvas. I must admit that, while I've never been a fan of New Year's resolutions, there's something about the beginning of a new year that gets me fired up! How do you plan to fill your canvas this year? What kind of picture do you want to paint? For me, the last few years have been pretty full with a constant and steady stream of billable work. While this is a great problem to have, a full schedule presents unique challenges when it comes to keeping your skills sharp and current. So, call it an informal resolution, but my goal is to knock off some of the moss that's been gathering on my toolkit. As I retool for HTML5 development, I plan to share the neat and interesting parts of that journey with you. And this article represents the first step.
