FWIW: I (@Rondy) am not the author of the content presented here, which is an outline from Edmond Lau's book. I've just copy-pasted it from somewhere and saved as a personal gist, before it got popular on newsnews.ycombinator.com. I don't remember where exactly the original source is from and neither could find the author's name, so I cannot give him/her the proper credits.

What forces layout / reflow

All of the below properties or methods, when requested/called in JavaScript, will trigger the browser to synchronously calculate the style and layout*. This is also called reflow or layout thrashing, and is common performance bottleneck.

Generally, all APIs that synchronously provide layout metrics will trigger forced reflow / layout. Read on for additional cases and details.

Element APIs

Getting box metrics
  • elem.offsetLeft, elem.offsetTop, elem.offsetWidth, elem.offsetHeight, elem.offsetParent

When Active Record Child Objects are Autosaved in Rails
View active_record_objects_autosave.md

belongs_to:

  1. Assigning an object to a belongs_to association does not automatically save the object. It does not save the associated object either.

has_one:

  1. When you assign an object to a has_one association, that object is automatically saved (in order to update its foreign key).
  2. In addition, any object being replaced is also automatically saved, because its foreign key will change too
  3. If either of these saves fails due to validation errors, then the assignment statement returns false and the assignment itself is cancelled.
  4. If the parent object (the one declaring the has_one association) is unsaved (that is, new_record? returns true) then the child objects are not saved. They will automatically when the parent object is saved.
