A fancy Apple.com-style search suggestion

Apple is known to create beautiful products (next to the needed functionality of course). I already wrote several articles on how you can transfer some amazing iPhone designs to your webbrowser, I own a MacBook Pro (which also looks pretty sleek) and many other products from Apple are well known for their amazing design.

The website from Apple isn't less: The layout is simple yet beautiful. Yet, one of the most awesome things about the website is the search functionality. It gives you suggestions (with images) about the several products they offer, making it really user-friendly.

Today, we're trying to recreate the effect from that website by creating a fancy apple.com-style search suggestion. Make sure you check out the demo (or visit Apple.com) to see this awesome effect work.

A fancy Apple.com-style search suggestion

This example makes use of several techniques: MySQL (for the database), HTML/CSS for styling, PHP for retrieving the data and jQuery for the AJAX request. How about that for some nice way of combining powerful techniques to create something nice like this. You do need some basic knowledge about these techniques to fully understand this tutorial.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
As you can see, the demo is located on another server. The reason for this is, that every time a user presses on his keyboard, a call is made to the MySQL database. When loads of users do loads of calls (at the same time), this could result in slowing down the database. The answer for this would that the results should be cached - Something that isn't implemented right now.

Safari, Chrome and Opera are currently the only webbrowsers that support the drop shadow effect around the the search results. Other browsers will simply display the results without the drop shadow.

This technique would be great if it were converted to a plugin for a CMS (WordPress/Joomla/Drupal etc.), but also just very cool to have on your website.

Styling a chat conversation with text balloons

As you can see in my last article (a chat conversation with Janko Javonovic), the article is nicely styled in a real "chat conversation" way. This is achieved by placing the text in text (or speech) balloons, using avatars and making it look pretty fancy.

Like I already said in that article, I wanted to share how you can create such a nicely styled chat conversation with text balloons using CSS3. You can show your interviews or chat conversations online in a pretty way, making it more visually attractive.

Styled chat conversation with CSS3

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Just like the polaroid photo viewer: The text balloons are styled using the CSS3 border-radius property. This works fine on Firefox (using -moz-border-radius) and on Safari/Chrome (using -webkit-border-radius), but on Internet Explorer (not even 8.0) it doesn't. The browser just displays the text baloons as simple blocks.

The iPhone Contacts App with CSS and jQuery

Remember that I created "the iPhone unlock screen" and "the iPhone springboard" in xHTML, CSS and jQuery? Today, I'm bringing you another chapter of transferring some of the beautiful iPhone layouts to the webbrowser.

The design of the Contacts app will be used and displayed in your browser. Funny fact is that this is the first "iPhone to CSS/jQuery conversion" that I created (before the unlock and springboard screen). I'll try to give you the real iPhone feeling with these tutorials.

iPhone Contacts App with CSS and jQuery

OK, maybe not fully the "feeling" (look and feel) from the iPhone, since I can't make any webbrowser react to placing your finger on the screen, but your mouse will do the trick.

Demo Scrolling box - iPhone contacts style   Download Scrolling box - iPhone contacts style

Features:

  • XHTML and CSS valid.
  • "Top indicator" changes character while scrolling (Just like the iPhone).
  • Including "Search" on the right (Just like the iPhone).
  • Pretty sleek interface, including see-through elements (Just like the iPhone).
  • Falls back nicely when the user has JavaScript disabled.
  • Combined with the unlock and springboard screen, it looks like the real deal.
  • Tested and working on Firefox 3, Internet Explorer 7 (With fixes) and Safari 3.

Known issues

  • The "top indicator" doesn't always show the correct character, especially when using the search.
  • The "top indicator" is placed on top of the scrollbar of the browser.
  • I wrote some pretty damn ugly JavaScript (Hey, it works).
  • Works crappy on an actual iPhone.
  • Only works correct when browser doesn't scroll. For people with a small screen resolution, here's a smaller demo (I just changed the CSS and images to 50% of the original size).

Other than those minor issues, it works as expected. Make sure you check it out!

The iPhone Springboard in xHTML, CSS and jQuery

Last week, I wrote an article on how to create the iPhone Unlock Screen using xHTML, CSS and jQuery. As stated in the article, I would really love to tranfer more of the sleek iPhone design to a webpage. The next obvious step for me, was to create the iPhone Springboard in xHTML, CSS and jQuery.

Chris Coyier from CSS-Tricks allowed me to place the article over at his website (Thanks Chris!). If you want to know how I created the iPhone Springboard, make sure you read the article on CSS-Tricks.

Enable Akismet support in !JoomlaComment

!JoomlaComment is one of the leading free commenting components for Joomla!. I've been using the component since the beginning of my website.

As I said before, !JoomlaComment isn't perfect (yet). It's still missing some features that make others (Like JomComment) more attractive, like the support for trackback. On the other hand, !JoomlaComment does allow threaded / nested comments which is a big positive point.

Enable Akismet support in !JoomlaComment

Another downside of the component is the lack of using the Akismet service. Akismet (which is often used together with WordPress) is a service that helps you preventing others of placing automated spam messages in your comments. !JoomlaComments current solution for preventing spam messages was by enabling CAPTCHA: A technique not many users like.

Download source files Akismet support in !JoomlaComment

We're now going to disable the CAPTCHA and enable Akismet support in !JoomlaComment. How? By "hacking" in the !JoomlaComment core.

So let's edit the PHP code from !JoomlaComment and add Akismet support! This tutorial is written for the latest release of !JoomlaComment at this moment: 3.26.

The iPhone unlock screen in xHTML, CSS and jQuery

The iPhone: Everybody knows what it is, many people "played around" with the gadget and most people love it. I also own one of these amazing smartphones, and the looks of the software is really, really sleek and innovative (Just like we're used from Apple).

I wanted to transfer (some) of these amazing designs to a webpage to re-create the same look and feel for webbrowsers. Today, I'm going to show you how to create The iPhone unlock screen in xHTML, CSS and jQuery.

  • "Date" displays the current date (Just like the iPhone).
  • Pretty sleek interface, including see-through elements (Just like the iPhone).
  • Changeable background.
  • Tested and working on Firefox 3, Internet Explorer 7 and Safari 3.

Known issues

  • The "slider" doesn't slide back (what the iPhone does).
  • The "unlock animation" isn't exactly the same as the iPhone.
  • Doesn't work on an actual iPhone.

Other than those minor issues, it works as expected. I'm planning to make some more of these "iPhone style" webpages, so subscribe to the feed if you want to keep updated. Want to know how I created it? Check it out.
