Servitude: CSS and JavaScript Injection Sugar

Tuesday, December 27, 2011 - Jerry Sievert

Multiple requests suck. Let me rephrase that: multiple requests really suck. The more requests you make, the more connections that are made, the more data that is transfered, the longer it takes to for your application to become responsive. Servitude helps you reduce the number of requests made for CSS and JavaScript down to one and injects it into the DOM for you in the order you request -- faster requests mean more responsiveness; more responsiveness means a better application.


XHTML/CSS Playing Cards

Monday, February 2, 2009 - Jerry Sievert

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. Unfortunately, it's also worth 1000 bytes or more. In my quest to build the ultimate game of solitaire, I needed cards, 52 of them to be exact. That's a lot of bandwidth for something as simple as cards. I decided to try to fix this problem by making my cards using XHTML and CSS.
