Great review for krasimirtsonev.com

Special thanks to Tim Martinez for his review in HumberInteractive.com.Tim Martinez:"The site I chose is the portfolio site of Web Designer and Developer, Krasimir Tsonev.When you hit the site, right off the bat you’re presented with a simple pre-loader and then up comes the navigation. I like the navigation because it starts off centred and one column. I like that the focus is on the navigation and it’s just so clean. The menu has a large font and is easy to read, plus you get a cool rollover. Now when you click on something in the navigation, it gives you what you want right away. When you click on “Work”, then the navigation shifts over and you get a two-column thing going on. The second column then has the submenu items under Work and you get sweet rollovers again. The site’s functionality is very simple. The site’s layout is just so simple. I like it.

AS3: DataGrid with custom ItemRenderers

One of the big advantages of Flex framework is that you can use a lot of ready components. The DataGrid is really helpful. Especially when you want to list big amount of data and provide ability to edit the information directly in the grid. These days I finished a test task which uses DataGrid and decided to share my experience.

CSS: transition from pixels to auto

As you may know I just updated my web site. There are five columns which nicely slide up and down on a lower resolution. In other words, accordion-like navigation. Initially I made this effect with JavaScript. But there was a bug and I decided to use pure CSS. I wanted to define everything in CSS classes which to add or remove. The idea wasn't bad except the fact that every column contains dynamic content and I wasn't able to set the exact height when the column is slided down.

Running Prettier for specific Git branch

I'm working on a project in my own git branch. At the end of my working day I want to do one thing - run Prettier so my code is nicely formatted before I submit the PR for code review. Of course I know about the VSCode Prettier extension but right now my editor is kinda broken and I don't want to mess with it. I'm still on my branch and I run Prettier from the terminal. All good but the amount of changes that happened is so big that my 50+ loc updates are like a needle in a haystack. It is like that because apparently there are already malformatted files in the project. It is definitely not possible to understand what I did because of so much noise. So ... I want to run Prettier but only on the files that I touched in that particular branch.
