CSS Lists, Markers, And Counters

CSS Lists, Markers, And Counters CSS Lists, Markers, And Counters Rachel Andrew 2019-07-09T12:30:59+02:002019-07-09T11:06:16+00:00 Lists in CSS have particular properties which give us the standard list styling we expect. An unordered list gains a list bullet, of the type disc, and ordered lists are numbered. My interest in exploring lists in more detail came from some work I did to document the ::marker pseudo-element for MDN. This pseudo-element ships in Firefox 68 and is being released today. With the ::marker pseudo element available to us, we can start to do some interesting things with lists, and in this article, I’ll explain more. Deconstructing A List You may not have thought much about lists, although we use them frequently in our markup. Many things can be marked up quite logically as a list. While step-by-step instructions or ranked elements may naturally be described by an ordered list , many things in a Read the full article…

To profit from it the most, you will need to have at least some basic experience writing JavaScript (and, optionally, HTML/CSS). In the previous part of this tutorial, we learned about the basic files that make up a plugin, and how to create the plugin’s user interface. In this second and final part, we’ll learn how to connect the user interface to the core plugin code and how to implement the plugin’s main features. Last but not least, we’ll also learn how to optimize the code and the way the plugin works. Building Read the full article…

Google says Stadia games will remain playable even if publishers stop supporting the platform

Google has updated the FAQ page for its upcoming Stadia cloud gaming service and it includes one notable tidbit of new information. The company says that, in the rare event a game publisher pulls Stadia support for a title, Stadia will continue to make the game available to those who’ve purchased the license to stream it, per 9to5Google. “Once you purchase the game, you own the right to play it. In the future, it is possible that some games may no longer be available for new purchases, but existing players will still be able to play the game,” the Stadia FAQ page reads. “Outside of unforeseen circumstances, Stadia will aim to keep any previously purchased title available for gameplay.” It sounds like a rather specific scenario, but it’s… Read the full article…

Apple’s Texas Hold’em game returns to the iPhone to celebrate 10 years of the App Store

Apple’s Texas Hold’em game was released over 11 years ago for the iPhone as the first game ever sold on the App Store. Today, seemingly out of nowhere, Apple has updated the game with a refreshed version that actually works on today’s iPhones, as spotted by 9to5Mac. The App Store page for Texas Hold’em claims that the update is to celebrate “the 10 year anniversary of the App Store.” That’s a bit strange: the App Store’s 10th anniversary — which, not coincidentally, was the same day that Texas Hold’em launched for the iPhone — was last July. But better late than never, I guess. Better late than never The new update adds new characters, modernized visuals, and, most importantly, an update for the 64-bit architecture that Apple launched… Read the full article…

54 free Photoshop actions

If you want the best free Photoshop actions, you’ve come to the right place. But what are Photoshop actions? Well, Adobe’s flagship image editing software has an inbuilt programming language that will enable you to condense minutes (or hours) of design work into a single click.  The programme will record your edits and save them as an ‘action’, to which you can associate a shortcut key. You can then launch the Photoshop action, and see the same edits applied to a different image, pretty much instantly. For edits and changes you make regularly, these are pretty great timesavers.  You can record your own Photoshop actions, but you can also import ready-made free Photoshop actions – which is where this article comes in. These enable you to add a whole range of cool effects to your images. We’ve rounded up the best free Photoshop actions available, to enable you to pimp Read the full article…

The Mario Maker Challenge is Back!

Super Mario Maker 2 is here! And while we’re blown away by some of the awesome community maps and levels that we’ve seen so far, we also wanted to get in on the action ourselves. Just like last time, we’ve paired up our editors with one another, and they’ll build levels for each other. Whether these are fun/cool tributes to our favorite Mario games or Machiavellian death traps built solely to destroy friendships remains to be seen, but either way, it’s going to be a good time.

The Top-Selling 3rd Party Console Games of All Time

If you guessed GTA V and any of several Call of Duty’s would dominate the lists of top-selling third-party games of all time, you’d be right. But how do they all stack up to one another, across all platforms through over 20 years? Well, Mat Piscatella of the NPD Group compiled the top 10 best-selling third-party published games on all Nintendo platforms combined since NPD began tracking this data back in 1995. Piscatella also provided IGN with data for the top 10 third-party games (through May 2019) on PlayStation and Xbox consoles, as well as across all platforms. Ranking of the best-selling games for each platform is based on total dollar sales.
