mike-zarandona / Weather Data + Icons from Yahoo.html
Last active Jan 8, 2016
Weather icon output parameter functions. `weatherData()` will fetch data from Yahoo's servers for a particular geography, and `weatherOutput()` handles parsing the data and writing the results to the DOM. Relies on the Yahoo Weather API and Weather Icons by Erik Flowers…

mike-zarandona / "Responsive" Google Ads
Last active Aug 29, 2015
Fake-out responsive Google Ads. Works by showing one and hiding another at a particular breakpoint without using `display: none` which breaks the ads.

mike-zarandona / PHP Cache Buster
Created Jan 13, 2014
Adding this bit of PHP to the end of a stylesheet or script incorporation will dynamically append the UTC time to the URL - making it "unique" on every load. EXTREMELY helpful for clients who might not know how to clear their browser cache.

Retina LESS Mixin. Makes it super easy to specify one background image to cover both standard and retina views.

mike-zarandona / TicketPunch.less
Last active Dec 20, 2015
The .ticket-punch() mix-in allows for very easy creation of "punchouts" on the left and right side of an element using :before and :after pseudo-elements.
