This Web Wednesday went by in a flash! And we didn't even discuss Flash. Go figure.
If you want to watch it after the fact, here's the link to the archive on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjIXdD8mlQk
More on Includes!
Sandy had some more questions on include files, so here's a link to a page on MagicEdit.com that talks more about it:
If you're hosting on MagicEdit, we support includes on all of the types of files that MagicEdit supports: .html, .htm, and .shtml. But you can use similar methods on other server technologies such as PHP and ASP.NET.
Boilerplates and Frameworks
Some common boilerplates are Twitter Bootstrap (http://twitter.github.com/bootstrap/), HTML5 Boilerplate (http://html5boilerplate.com/), and Skeleton (http://www.getskeleton.com/), but there are tons more out there.
After the Hangout I thought about this some more, and I think the reason why you wouldn't refer to these as "frameworks" is that the nomenclature would conflict with the term "Web Application Framework", which also includes server-side functionality for doing stuff like writing to a database. Typically boilerplates are completely client-side, meaning they can be used on top of any framework or even on static web pages.
We touched on MagicEdit a bit during the Hangout, but we also have a basic tutorial that you can walk through to implement the base feature set. You can install it on your own MagicEdit account here (http://www.magicedit.com/Tutorials2.cl), or just download it here (http://template.magicedit.com/me_tutorial01.zip).
See you next time!
