http://mmikowski.github.io/powercss-1.0-released/

TL;DR: If you don't know what CSS is, you can stop reading now :)

On Good Friday, we published version 1.0 of the MIT-licensed PowerCSS JavaScript library. PowerCSS provides many of the features of Stylus, {less}, or Sass but with JavaScript-powered run-time styling. It could make your static CSS files obsolete.

PowerCSS now has dedicated website with online examples. Mom, this one's for you! It is mobile optimized, has links to examples, and even demos PowerCSS itself - just chose a theme or cascade from the top-right corner. Any feedback is welcome!

PowerCSS fast approaching 1.x release

If you liked the idea of application-controlled CSS but were waiting for a compelling library with a stable API, your wait is over. Pure JS, real-time styling, double-buffering, merging and caching, mixins, CSS-like workflow, highly optimized, highly compressible, high quality, no dependencies, MIT licensed, and plays well with others. What's not to like?

Hey code kids! Today I am taking the wraps off of PowerCSS, an all-new library that provides dynamic CSS techniques that I've talked about for years.

"Unleash PowerCSS to create custom CSS for every user that visits your site. PowerCSS uses merging, caching, compression, and double-buffering to exceed the speed and flexibility of static CSS. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rnkMjzhxw4s"

See the beta code at https://www.npmjs.com/package/powercss.  Collaborators are welcome!

Ok web developers, this one's for you. Members of The Library Liberation Front unite! This post shows when jQuery is a good idea - and when it's not.

Conventional "wisdom" is often wrong.  For example, do you really want an SPA framework?  Think about it!  http://mmikowski.github.io/no-frameworks/

For the Web Geeks in the Audience:

Today I posted an article that shows how replace Replace RESTful APIs with with a set of best practices I've called JSON-Pure. http://mmikowski.github.io/json-pure/ 

This is a sequal to RESTful APIs - the Big Lie at http://mmikowski.github.io/the_lie/. This article discussed the issues with RESTful APIs, whereas this follow-up shows solutions.

I've updated my Kubuntu spreadsheet to outline how to overclock an Nvidia GTX 900 series video card on Linux.  Handy if you run Linux.  And have a GTX 970 graphics card.  And run GPU intensive applications.

I saw a 10% improvement in Uningine's "Heaven" benchmark, and expect most GPU-intensive applications should do as well or better.
