Explore various Modernizr features using Packt's new book and eBook

December 2012 | Open Source, Web Development

Packt is pleased to announce the release of its new book: Learning Modernizr; the book that will help readers perform feature detection with the Modernizr JavaScript library. Written by Adam Watson, this book guides the readers through the creation of forward-compatible websites using Modernizr feature detection.

Modernizr is a JavaScript library that detects the availability of native implementations for next-generation web technologies, i.e. features that stem from the HTML5 and CSS3 specifications. Many of these features are already implemented in at least one major browser (most of them in two or more), and what Modernizr does is, very simply, tells whether the current browser has this feature natively implemented or not.

Learning Modernizr provides readers a progressive experience using a vast array of detected CSS3 features, replace images with CSS based counterparts and learn the benefits of detecting features instead of checking the name and version of the browser and serving accordingly.

This book takes the readers through HTML classes to alter the look of the page based on the features found and also helps them through the process of implementing animations, text shadow, content generation and explore how feature detection differs from User Agent detection. It also shows readers how to use CSS to draw and animate an assortment of shapes and shadows. It also helps them to deliver a design that is not only backward but also forward compatible.

Learning Modernizr is a book for developers who want to use a broad range of cases for feature detection. This book is now available for purchase in print and popular e-book formats at the Packt book-page
