We optimize for joy. We believe writing code is a lot of hard work, and the only way it can be worth is by enjoying it. When there is no longer joy in writing code, the best thing to do is stop.
— Redis Manifesto
From the document introduction:
In the modern era, software is commonly delivered as a service: called web apps, or software-as-a-service. The twelve-factor app is a methodology for building software-as-a-service apps that:
- Use declarative formats for setup automation, to minimize time and cost for new developers joining the project;
- Have a clean contract with the underlying operating system, offering maximum portability between execution environments;
- Are suitable for deployment on modern cloud platforms, obviating the need for servers and systems administration;
- Minimize divergence between development and production, enabling continuous deployment for maximum agility;
- And can scale up without significant changes to tooling, architecture, or development practices.
Very good and well written summary of best practices for building modern web apps. Read the full document over at 12factor.net.
Nice, exactly what I needed.
Helping you implement HTML5 today with an element index and articles on best-practice.
This could come in handy for announcement and error pages.
I don’t like it, but I agree. Let’s hope the HTML5 History API makes this a non-issue soon.
