…application. Extensibility, specifically extensibility provided through the HTML, CSS, and JS web technologies that most developers (and some non-developers) know and use every day, is basically the strongest selling point this editor has. Say what you want about using HTML in a desktop application, but exposing your plugin architecture as a bunch of HTML/CSS is something even some of my non-tech friends could pick up and hack on. Foundationally, GitHub made smart technology choices. …

…Bar Charts: You can use an unordered list with data attributes to define the height of each bar. CSS makes it easy to change the color of the axis and bars.

Line Graphs: Simply use an unordered list with data attributes to define both the X and Y axis of a line. Like the bar charts, you can use CSS to change the color of the axis, lines and bullets. And it's easy to have more than one line per graph.

Pie Charts: Pizza is still there so you can use an unordered list to create …

Pure CSS

One of the first fullscreen solutions we tried uses pure CSS. It sets the video min-height and min-width to 100%: video { min-height: 100%; min-width: 100%; position: absolute; }

This technique is simple and works fairly well, but sizing can be an issue. When the browser viewport is smaller than native video dimensions, the video stops scaling down. In our case, this led to undesired cropping.

Transform: scale

CSS transforms are capable of doing a lot of …

How to use it (and inline CSS)
