    the CSS properties If you can t make it to Zurich you can at least be with the doc sprinters in spirit as they and you dip into this week s cheesy or chocolately pot of CSS properties Indeed there is a veritable Matterhorn of left over properties that we need to revisit from previous weeks So don your crampons ascend to the Web Platform Wednesday page and pick a route er property Your coordinators or Peters Taugwalder will be ready to guide you And I think I ve beaten the mountain climbing analogy sufficiently into the pack ice You don t have to be a genius like Albert Einstein aw come on you saw that coming nor a visionary like Albert Hofmann not that one though I bet but being a good sport like wait for it Roger Federer for the win certainly helps If you have any questions or are not sure where to start come and chat with the coordinators in the webplatform IRC Channel or via email on the mailing list as there is always a volunteer who will be happy to help like one more for the road the Red Cross This entry was posted

    reference content for each of them on Webplatform Docs alignment adjust unsupported all space treatment obsolete unsupported but mentioned in the line layout specification block progression obsolete only IE 8 and later implements it prefixed kerning mode obsolete unsupported kerning pair threshold obsolete unsupported max font size obsolete unsupported min font size obsolete unsupported punctuation trim obsolete unsupported shape image threshold shape inside shape outside shape padding text height white space treatment obsolete unsupported word break inside obsolete unsupported wrap option wrap through Sure this is just a subset of what you can do with text using CSS but I d like to think that these properties enable the tasteful accessorizing of text adding just the right touch to your work without going so far as to be tacky a la the CSS WG s April fool s joke from 2012 And so this is where you come in You re unique you have that certain je ne sais quoi about you Bring that panache that élan and use it to help document the web And as you can see a number of the properties are either obsolete or unsupported and require minimal documentation so this week s group is fun and easy Let one of the coordinators know which CSS properties you are interested in documenting Make sure you have a user account for Webplatform Docs And then follow the guidelines on the Web Platform Wednesday page There are lots of people to help should you run into any snags And voila you re documenting the web What is Web Platform Wednesday There are many contributors doing work throughout Webplatform Docs Some are working on infrastructure some on community some in content and some lurking in the corners waiting for the perfect opportunity Web Platform Wednesday is a way

    15th 9am PST It s time for round 2 DING DING Not only do we hope to finish reviewing any pages left from last week s target CSS property pages but we will also work on four new groups of pages Border image properties Break and flow properties Font properties List style properties Please hop on board and pitch in Even a small contribution to a single page is much appreciated And it s pretty straightforward You can edit any or all of these for each article Basic facts such as overview table syntax and values Explanatory text such as the introduction summary usage and notes Examples with explanations Links to tutorials and other materials either inside WPD or on the wider web to the relevant specifications and cross linking keywords to other reference articles Review including flagging and unflagging To get started send a quick note declaring your interest on our public webplatform w3 org email list or ask for direction on our Freenode webplatform IRC channel or even our webplatform Twitter account Someone will help you get you started Each article has a coordinator managing it Check in with them just to make sure there s no duplication of effort and dig in We provide the link to the target article and to the definition of the property in the appropriate CSS spec Most tasks will be self explanatory but if you need help or guidance the coordinator is there for you Doug s post from last week summed up really nicely what this is all about so please give that a read if you want some more information about how this got started Posted in Community Content Web Platform Wednesday Web Platform Wednesdays May 08 2013 by Shepazu Documenting the web even just client side technologies is an enormous undertaking We can t do it alone and we can t do it all at once We want to send a clear signal to the web developer community about where our site is the most useful today where it s going next and when it will get there And to those who want to contribute we want to make it clear and easy how to help We also want to make sure that the content contributions are high quality To meet these goals we ve decided to focus on one main topic area at a time break it down into manageable morsels that can be accomplished in a week and systematically craft each article one at a time CSS properties are an area of rapid growth and great developer and designer interest and with the recent integration of our CSS property reference documentation into Brackets and other upcoming projects CSS properties seemed like a good place to start Though we have been working on the CSS properties here and there at doc sprints and whenever a few of us have the time we aren t moving fast enough We need a coordinated effort one that involves the larger community and one which makes use of an on going operating mechanism So each Wednesday we will announce a new set of CSS property articles that need work and ask for volunteers to pick a task for one or more articles work with the coordinator for that article and report back when it s ready for review This way we can systematically reach our goal of CSS property excellence by the end of July This first week we are concentrating on outline properties and border properties for color style width and shorthands Welcome to Web Platform Wednesday Continue reading Posted in Community Content Web Platform Wednesday Web Platform Docs API used in Brackets May 01 2013 by Julee A basic goal of WebPlatform org is to be the site where you can come for answers to your trickiest and simplest development and design questions about the Open Web Platform Along with being a site we also want to be a service or really to be of service as the saying goes Besides being a central location where you can get information we want the information to get to you So we ve provided APIs for retrieving the content in context You ve seen it before in editors You select Help and documentation pertaining to the code you re typing shows up in your editing window It s referred to on Wikipedia as Context sensitive help And it s great because right as you re coding you can check a method signature or get an explanation or a sample The key is the content Is the feature proprietary Widely adopted Is the help current If Web Platform Docs are being pulled in you know where you stand it s documenting the open web And you re getting the latest content we have Being on the MediaWiki platform means that we can provide an interface for structured information reuse You can try it now In your browser address bar just type http docs webplatform org w api php action parse page css properties box shadow OK it s not pretty but you get the idea or actually the xml result Adding a format parameter format json gives you the results back as a JSON object You can read more about the default calls in the MediaWiki developer documentation So the API was lying fallow when Adobe s Alan Greenblatt agreenblatt decided he wanted to contribute something useful to the Brackets project If you aren t already using Brackets you should check it out it s an open source code editor built with the web for the web which is a great match for what we re doing at WPD WebPlatform org individual contributor David Kirstein aka frozenice worked with Alan to explore and adjust the API The result is in the latest release of Brackets With a simple Command Control K the reference content for a CSS property appears in the context of your CSS code As it stands it s a

a little bit of code This week we re documenting background border and transform properties And looking around there s a lot of great advice and tools out there For instance did you know there s a site out there just to help you create a border radius The site s name border radius com of course And at the other end of the spectrum Mike Sierra s article on CSS transforms takes a deck of cards and shuffles them every which way Shay Howe also has a straightforward transforms tutorial that takes you from the basics to a 3D cube demo before you even know how far you ve gone And then there s

be happy to help Posted in Web Platform Wednesday Web Platform Wednesday Week 10 Animation Masking Jul 17 2013 by Lea This week s Web Platform Wednesday has a theme that every CSS geek will find exciting and many have been waiting for Animations and Masking CSS Animations need no introductions for many of you They are a pretty stable feature that allows designers to create anything ranging from simple transitions or incredibly complex animation effects bringing websites into the 4th dimension CSS Masking is much newer and has less browser support but it s not any less exciting It will allow authors to crop any CSS element in any possible shape defined through images Until now we could only do that in SVG but CSS Masking will bring this to the world of HTML content as well opening up a wide range of possibilities Since CSS Masking is new there is not much documentation material around it So if you help with those properties you will be one of the first few people documenting this If you like exploring new territory this is for you Don t worry if you don t have much time in your hands you don t need to write an entire page to help You can help to complete subsections of a page such as Basic facts Explanatory text Examples or Links and get credit for the sections you helped on Also you don t need to be an expert on these features to help You can study them and document them at the same time effectively helping both yourself and others learn more about them To view a full list of all properties we will be covering this week head over to the WPW page pick one or more
