threadingText - jQuery Plugin to enable HTML to allow thread text as known in Adobe Illustrator.

threadingText is a JavaScript jQuery plugin to enable thread text in HTML. With a responsive web design and dynamic content using thread text is hard to achieve; here is where threadingText comes into play.

The jQuery plugin threadingText provides a nice way of dynamically associate and fill HTML in pre-defined text containers and cut overlapping text with a specified ending symbol (default is " ...") or create new text containers according to a specified prototype text container if text would exceed provided space.

The implementation uses a binary text length search to divide the HTML among the text containers provided. While doing so it tries its best to repair any HTML tags beeing broken while threading the HTML in the text containers.

Additionally many code hooks are provided, where you can interfere in the layouting process and adjust the results in any way.

Pattern: Riblets vs. VIPER

Engineering the architecture behind Uber's new rider app

Not being held back by our extensive codebase and previous design choices gave us the freedom where we otherwise would have made compromises. The outcome is the sleek new app you see today, which implements a new mobile architecture across both iOS and Android. Read on to learn why we felt the need to create this new architecture pattern, called Riblets, and how it helps us reach our goals.

The platforms share:

Core architectureClass namesInheritance relationships between business logic unitsHow business logic is dividedPlugin points (names, existence, structure, etc.)Reactive programming chainsUnified platform components
Each Riblet is made up of one Router, Interactor, and Builder with its Component (hence the name), and optional Presenters and Views. The Router and Interactor handle the business logic, while the Presenter and View handle the view logic.

WireMock is a flexible library for stubbing and mocking web services. Unlike general purpose mocking tools it works by creating an actual HTTP server that your code under test can connect to as it would a real web service.

It supports HTTP response stubbing, request verification, proxy/intercept, record/playback of stubs and fault injection, and can be used from within a unit test or deployed into a test environment.

Although it’s written in Java, there’s also a JSON API so you can use it with pretty much any language out there.
