If you want to add snap-to functionality to your web page, check out this ridiculously easy-to-use JavaScript library.

Just add it (and jQuery) to your page, then define which HTML elements you want to make the snap points. I love simple-to-use code, don’t you?

I’ll add onto it later as new ideas pop into my head. Right now, it’s using a timeout to account for the fact that there’s no scroll-end event in the DOM or jQuery. I’m not a huge fan of timeouts, but in this case it seems to work. I’d like something more elegant going forward.

I’ve always embraced a holistic view of life and skills. Skills learned from doing Task A don’t only apply to Task A. A truly wise person can learn to use those skills in other parts of their life.

I don’t do martial arts. I do improv.

IE 10 LogoI’d like to say we hardly knew ye, but I knew ye way too well. In fact, I just realized that my web development carrier started just as IE rolled out (in 1995) and is going strong even after it was put to bed.

Certainly, this isn’t the end of it, seeing as it takes people forever to upgrade and it’s only available on Windows 10. But it’s the beginning of the end.

So long you crazy, backwards piece of software. You weren’t the best, but you did keep us web developers on our toes. I salute you, worthy adversary!
