Angular – Numeric Control Directive

Thursday, July 3, 2014

in one of LogoUi’s projects we had a requirement for  a numeric input type.My first thought was using an HTML5 input type number . Example: <input type="number" min="1" max="5"> The problem was that not all browsers has support for HTML5 input types.Check this site for more information about HTML5 forms browser support . so as a solution I decided to do 2 things: A) Use jQuery Spinner (numeric) widget which solves my cross browser compatibility issue.B) Wrap the widget as an Angular directive. Final Result: http://embed.plnkr.co/o33VP56azuA22FLjpU3p/preview You can find my source code and more examples regarding Numeric directive in my GitHub page. Enjoy!

AngularJS – HTML5 Canvas Drag and Drop Directive Using KineticJS

Tuesday, January 7, 2014

Recently for one of my projects I needed to add drag and drop (DnD) functionality. After examining the native HTML5 DnD I come to conclusion that the awesome HTML5 feature still suffers from cross browser computability issues, second of all the lack of mobile touch support really pissed me off. On the other hand, Canvas has no cross browser computability issues and has a great touch support. To make a long story short, I implemented Canvas DnD functionality in AngularJS directive. We use KineticJS -an HTML5 Canvas JavaScript framework that enables high performance animations, transitions, node nesting, layering, filtering, caching, event handling...
