Mozilla Brick 1.0 + Hacks post!


Today two very exciting things happened:

  1. Mozilla Brick 1.0 was finally released! That means that we can now… start working on 1.1! YAY, WE NEVER STOP!
  2. Angelina’s article on Brick + X-Tag and web components in general was published: Custom Elements for Custom Applications – Web Components with Mozilla’s Brick and X-Tag

I have worked in both things (more in Brick than in the article, which I just helped edit) so it’s naturally obvious that I’m excited they’re finally published. And also since the article is Chapter 1 (as mentioned in my post), that means that next week you get Chapter 2–i.e. my article.

Stay put, friends. It’s going to rock. Almost literally.

  1. Kinda impatient to read chapter two and the following others, though.

    If you need inspiration for the next chapters, an example of a full mobile app with a slightly complex GUI would be great.

    Brick is a great tool for server devs who want to easily write an app on top of their server – but know not much of webdev.


    1. Well, if server devs can use Brick to write an app, then our work is done and we’ll be quite happy 🙂

  2. Well, looking at the x-tag Github repo, seems the Brick party is only starting. 🙂

    I’d have a question regarding x-cards.

    With two xcards contained in an xdeck, I’d like to have them both displayed (‘selected’) side-by-side on computer screen but only one at a time on mobile screen.

    I tried to play with the CSS ‘display’ and ‘float’ properties of the xdeck and xcards but without success, so I’m wondering if it’s possible to display two siblings xcards side-by-side at a time without having them overlapping.

    A mailing-list or a forum would be nice to share the dev experience btw.
