Glaubenskriege gibt es in der IT-Welt viele. Neben der ewig währenden Frage, ob emacs oder vim unter Masochisten nun der bessere Editor sei, ist besonders auch die Wahl des Betriebssystems für viele eine Grundsatzentscheidung. Die populärsten darunter – Windows, macOS (ehemals OS X) und Linux(-Derivate) – haben alle ihre Vorzüge und Eigenheiten, die für die Web-Entwicklung relevant sein können. In diesem Blog-Post zeigen wir euch, wie ihr euch bzw. euren Rechner fit für Web-Development mit macOS macht.
Da wir stets auf der Suche nach Innovation sind und daher auch den Web Bereich innovativer gestalten wollten, haben wir uns dazu entschlossen, den Web Development Stack neu zu definieren. Im Bereich Web Frontend fiel die Wahl auf die Technologie React, mit der ich seitdem überaus zufrieden bin. In meinem Blog werde ich euch nun erklären, warum das so ist, und warum ich diese Entscheidung definitiv nicht bereue! 😊
Web developers eventually come across WordPress. Some stumble upon it as they take their first steps in web development, for others it’s the staff of life. Instead of starting WordPress projects by downloading the latest version and firing up your local LAMP/MAMP/XAMPP/etc services, you could just try Docker – and exactly that’s what we are going to show you in this blog post.
Many of our web projects are built on WordPress. Therefore, an efficient and seamless development workflow is vital for us. In this blog post, we will take a look at how to use WordPress in combination with git.
React, ReactJS, React Native, ReactiveX: to a novice, all those would sound like the same thing. However, software developers who know a little bit about the topic also know that React/JS and React Native have got nothing to do with ReactiveX. If you would like to know why that’s the case and/or you want to annoy impress others with your knowledge about the exact difference, you’ve come to the right place.
As Mathias has already told us in his article, there are countless ways of visualizing 3D models in web applications, without having to install any of those pesky browser plugins. In this blog, I will tell you about what are probably the two most popular technologies for 3D rendering on the web: X3DOM and ThreeJS.
Compared to web apps, native apps were always that little bit better. For certain applications, web apps can definitely be the right choice, but all in all, they were never a serious competitor that could replace their native counterparts. But that might change now, since the new progressive web apps (short: PWAs) make the promise of being better web apps and feeling like native apps. So, what are PWAs? Are they just the latest trend or could they really become a danger to native apps? If that question interests you – read on! Continue reading →
Generally, 3D product visualization and configuration is not a brand-new topic. Various kitchen and living room planning tools spring to mind. But by utilizing the latest web technologies, 3D configurators can now be integrated directly into websites and online shops. Thus, they can be used by anyone at home, without the need to install additional software.
I can’t think how often I’ve heard that sentence. In any case, here’s what Edward Snowden has to say about it, “Arguing that you don’t care about privacy because you have nothing to hide is like arguing that you don’t care about free speech because you have nothing to say.” So, if you’ve also found yourself saying or thinking it at some point, please continue here, because I’m sure you will have a different view when I’m done.
Let’s say you’re a talented designer of handbags or decorative items and you’d like to sell them online. In a forum, you read about a free shop system that has lots of features and can be customized to your exact needs. You excitedly download it and install it on your server. After logging in, however, you have to admit that you’re completely lost. You ask your search engine of choice and after a few hours of futile research, you are ready to give up. That doesn’t sound very reasonable, now does it?
