Its been a busy weekend, and I’m proud to share two newly released projects with you.
If you read my recent post about the state of HTML5 audio codec support and share similar frustrations, Audio5js is here for the rescue.
The source code is heavily commented and of course there’s the much desired README file with all the details you need to write your next browser-based audio player.
Some highlights you might be interested in:
- Audio5js supports any codec HTML5 Audio supports with a default fallback to MP3 (either via HTML or via Flash).
- Browser support include IE8, IE9, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera, Safari Mobile & WebKit Mobile
- Audio5js is RequireJS / AMD ready and is also available via Ender.js
Some months ago I released a Rubygem called Jader that lets you share Jade templates between client and server in Ruby on Rails applications. It was created to help me build SEO friendly single-page applications with Spine.js.
Today, I released its younger brother Handlebarer which lets you do the same with Handlebars templates. Although still at infancy, Handlebarer seems like a perfect fit for Rails-driven Ember.js applications and with time, I hope to add some missing features (like partials support).
If you’re keen to build a rich single-page application either with Spine.js (which will let you use Handlebarer or Jader), or Ember.js, I encourage you to give either of them a try.
