WCMS Web Dev Rev wrap-up for November 18, 2016

WCMS Web Dev Rev

This week in Web Dev Rev notes: on Saturday, there is an online Drupal 8 conference; an update on Drupal 8 core initiatives; an introduction to "monkey testing" using gremlins.js; an emoji guide for Git commit messages; how the classic "snake" game for the PHP command line was done; CSS-Tricks on the "box-decoration-break" property; colour web fonts from Adobe; browser-native "copy to clipboard"; and this week's web development reading list from Smashing Magazine, which, amongst other things, points out that Firefox 50 is out and Firefox 51 (link no longer available) is in beta (and will block improperly-served JavaScript), that you can use "update-insecure-requests" in a content security policy to avoid "mixed content" warnings, and how print stylesheets are important.

WCMS Web Dev Rev

This week in Web Dev Rev notes: we reviewed the plan for media management in Drupal 8; took the HTML quiz (what was your score?); looked at the winners of the 10K Apart contest; started unfolding critical CSS; noted the "ask me anything" about CSS grid layout; got unstuck on position: sticky; dusted off a form linter; started to understand PHP generators; found out about the ultimate list of developer podcasts; and saw the power of the rgba() colour function in CSS.
