2. Links with Inline SVG, Staying on Target with Events | CSS-Tricks

It’s pretty common to use SVG within an anchor link or otherwise “click/tappable thing” on a web page. It’s also increasingly common that the SVG is inline , because it’s often nice having the SVG in the DOM since you can style it with CSS and script it with JS and such.

3. Gromf: WordPress boilerplate using Foundation 5(based on Roots.io) | Foundation Forum from ZURB

Hi! I’ve been using Roots starter theme(http://roots.io/) for a few projects now(check it out, it’s awesome), but since Foundation(SASS) is more my style than Bootstrap(LESS) I decided to fork Roots and customize it to make use of Foundation 5 and Gulp.js(instead of Grunt).

I’m not trying to do a Roots take-over here, but I thought sharing it here would be a good thing in case someone else wanted a Roots.io + Foundation 5 boilerplate/starter-theme.

Use, fork, pull:

4. Responsive Design Begins With The URL | Smashing Magazine

The BBC’s Programmes website is huge, and is intended to be a rolling archive of everything that the BBC broadcasts on television and radio. Originally released in 2007, it now has pages for over 1.6 million episodes, but that’s barely half of the story.

Surrounding those episodes is a wealth of content, including clips, galleries, episode guides, character profiles and much more, plus Programme’s newly responsive home pages.


5. Animating Background Colors

As promised in my previous post, I will be sharing some of the scripts used on the Themify redesign. Today I’m going to share the animating background color script as seen on the site. It is a simple jQuery script that animates a series of background colors in a loop. It runs smoothly on desktop, tablet, and even mobile devices.
