Bootstrap 4.1.2 released

12 Jul 2018

We’ve been busy these last couple months since launching v4.1.1, but we’re back with another bug fix and some sweeping changes to how we build and publish our docs after the issues stemming from our v4.1.x launches.

When we launched v4.1, we ran into unexpected issues with having to rearrange asset paths after deploying, resulting in broken image URLs, a busted service worker, and more. Since then, we’re ironed out most of the kinks and introduced a new docs directory structure inside the repo. Nothing should change for anyone using our docs, but those contributing to the project and developing locally may need to rebase their changes or update their branches accordingly.

Beyond the file structure changes, here are the highlights for v4.1.2:

Fixed an XSS vulnerability in tooltip, collapse, and scrollspy plugins
Improved how we query elements in our JavaScript plugins
Inline SVGs now have

Web Architecture 101

Modern web application architecture overviewThe above diagram is a fairly good representation of our architecture at Storyblocks. If you’re not an experienced web developer, you’ll likely find it complicated. The walk through below should make it more approachable before we dive into the details of each component.A user searches on Google for “Strong Beautiful Fog And Sunbeams In The Forest”. The first result happens to be from Storyblocks, our leading stock photo and vectors site. The user clicks the result which redirects their browser to the image details page. Underneath the hood the user’s browser sends a request to a DNS server to lookup how to contact Storyblocks, and then sends the request.The request hits our load balancer, which randomly chooses one of the 10 or so web servers we have running the site at the time to process the request. The web server looks up some information about the

Microsoft Whiteboard is available to all on Windows, iOS version coming soon

Microsoft previewed White Board last May, alongside the new Surface Pro, eventually rolling it out in public beta in December. The collaboration app just went live to all Windows users, as part of the deluge of announcements tied to the upcoming Inspire conference.
Whiteboard is kind of digital sibling to Microsoft’s large Surface Hub display. The company describes it as an “infinite canvas,” in a phrase cribbed from comics theorist, Scott McCloud. With the drawing app, users can sketch out notes and images with a finger, keyboard or compatible pen.

The app lets teams collaborate remotely, automatically uploading the final project to the cloud. The company says it’s also added a bunch of new features based on feedback during the beta, including, “text notes, the ability to add and manipulate images, enhancements to shape and table recognition, accessibility improvements, compliance with various global standards, and more.”
In addition to Windows availability, it

Microsoft Teams gets a free version

Microsoft opened up the news floodgates this morning, in the kick off to its annual Inspire event in Vegas. One of the more compelling announcements of the bunch is the addition of a free version of Teams.
The Slack competitor has been kicking around in some form or other since late-2016, but the $60 a year fee has likely made it a bit of a nonstarter for smaller businesses. After all, it’s Slack’s free tier that helped the work chat app gain so much traction so quickly. A free version makes a lot of sense for Microsoft.
Signing users up for Teams is way to get more feet into the door of its application ecosystem, which was once ubiquitous in offices. Once they’ve download teams, workplaces will be hooked into the Microsoft 365 suite.
The free tier actually brings a fair bit of the app to up to 300 people

I’m now archiving the RSS file for Scripting News in the GitHub repo, every night, along with the content of the blog for the day (in JSON, OPML and HTML). It’ll be interesting to be able to track the changes to the file over (knock wood) long periods of time. Here’s the source of the app that does the uploading. It’s proven to be very reliable.

Canonical releases Minimal Ubuntu for servers, containers and the cloud

There’s a new version of Ubuntu on the block — Minimal Ubuntu. It’s been stripped right back to the bone to leave a tiny footprint, and these back Linux distros  should boot 40 percent faster than a standard Ubuntu server image. Despite the reduced footprint size, Minimal Ubuntu retains all of Ubuntu’s standard tools (such as ssh, apt and snapd) and maintain full compatibility. Designed for cloud developers and ops, Canonical says that the release is intended for completely automated operations, and as such much of the user-friendliness has been stripped out, but it’s still ideal for used in KVM,… [Continue Reading]
