Dragula: Drag and drop so simple it hurts


Drag and drop so simple it hurts

Browser support includes every sane browser and IE7+. (Granted you polyfill the functional Array methods in ES5)

Framework support includes vanilla JavaScript, Angular, and React.

Try out the demo!

Have you ever wanted a drag and drop library that just works? That doesn’t just depend on bloated frameworks, that has great support? That actually understands where to place the elements when they are dropped? That doesn’t need you to do a zillion things to get it to work? Well, so did I!

Super easy to set up
No bloated dependencies
Figures out sort order on its own
A shadow where the item would be dropped offers visual feedback
Touch events!
Seamlessly handles clicks without any configuration
You can get it on npm.

npm install dragula –save

Or bower, too.

bower install dragula –save

Or a CDN.

If you’re not using either package manager, you can use dragula by downloading the files in the dist

Ways scientists use Slack

Illustration by the project twins

When geneticist Daniel MacArthur checks into his lab, the first thing he does is fire up Slack, a workplace messaging app. In the system, he zips through the hundreds of messages and files left in different channels by the lab’s 23 scientists — some reporting on their projects, others requesting help. The lab’s members have posted more than 400,000 messages on Slack since April 2014 — a rate of nearly 500 per day. For MacArthur, who works at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the tool has rendered irrelevant many of the ways that his lab previously used to communicate about papers and projects — especially e-mail. E-mail, says MacArthur, is “genuinely awful” and “actually disastrous for group communication”. His inbox, a jumble of vendor announcements, administration notices and other random requests, contains some 17,500 unread items. Slack, by contrast, is focused: because

How to get a C64 on WiFi and start BBSing again

Last year I created an account on Twitter to create a targeted feed for my hobby content and tweets for like-minded retro-gaming folk, separate from my personal account. On this hobby account I mainly follow retro-gaming and Commodore fans. When you use Twitter in a very targeted way like this, it actually can be extremely useful and enjoyable. In any event, during this time I began to see a healthy amount of discussion around BBS’es (Bulletin Board Systems) becoming “a thing” again for retro-computing nerds. And, amazingly, a few popular BBSes were being served off of 8-bit machines. “8-Bitters” were connecting to them, having virtually “off the grid” discussions and playing games outside the watchful eye of Google and the rest of the internet. I wanted to connect to them, too.Back in the day (BITD), people connected via modems over telephone lines. But these days most folks I know don’t
