  • Debuggable: Test Driven Development at Transloadit – “First of all, new features always start out as a system test. Each system test boots up the entire REST service, sends an actual HTTP request to it, and evaluates the response as well as the files that were created in the process. Files are verified by looking at their meta data, as well as performing visual diffs on images against expected fixtures. For videos we are using thumbnails to do the visual comparisons.
  • Trotter Cashion: I <3 Raphael – “Canvas was out on account of its lack of support in IE. SVG on the other hand… well, Raphael (a kickass javascript library) gives cross browser SVG support that works all the way back to IE6. Total Win!
  • Make: Formufit Sells Maker-Focused PVC Attachments – “ Basically, Formufit sells PVC connectors intended for maker projects. They feature glossy, unmarked fittings for pipe sizes ranging from ½″ to 2″.
