A while ago i needed a way to look up addresses from zip codes in Brazil for a weekend tinker project (Zip codes are called "CEP" here, "Código de Endereçamento Postal", or Postal Addressing Code). Turns out such a database is pretty hard to get hold of. Zip code data is created and maintained by the Brazilian Post (Correios), they have a copyright on it and are selling it for a hefty price tag. There are two versions for sale, "DNE Básico" for R$1.100 (complete dataset in text format, probably CSV), and "DNE Máster" for R$2.500.

Making something "100% height" is not as easy as it seems.
This post is a collection of Mobile Safari's gotchas and quirks on that topic, some with solutions and fixes, some without, in good parts pulled from various sources across the internets, to have it all in one place. Things discussed here apply to iOS8, iOS9 and iOS10.
The Disappearing Browser Chrome
Screen real estate on smartphones is limited, so Mobile Safari collapses the browser chrome (address bar and optional tab bar at the top, and tool bar at the bottom) when the user scrolls down. When you want to make something span exactly the height of the viewport, or pin something to the bottom of the screen, this can get tricky because the viewport changes size (or
