This approach assumes a very basic development and deployment model, where deploys are happening straight from the same branch that features are being merged into. As projects grow more complex, so must your deployment model . Automatically tagging deploys as we've outlined here breaks down under more complex systems, but the GitHub tag interface continues …

Load info is a neat website that lets you generate your own loading icon.

The first page has a hypnotising array of load-icons to choose. Click on one and it'll bring up a box that lets you choose the size and colours you want and it'll generate you a customised animated gif you can use.

Sending the Audio Data

Now that we have some background on how streaming works, let's play a song from our iTunes library. We can use a MPMediaPickerController to allow the user to pick a song to play. We will get …

The "screencast" further down the page is an animated GIF at retina resolution (biggest asset on the page at 386K)

The press logos under the plan selection are using webkit-filter to show them in greyscale (hint: add -webkit-transform: translateZ(0) so this works correctly on retina screens on Safari)

Now, you could use JavaScript for many of these things—swapping out images for retina screens, using hosted web fonts that may require a JavaScript-based loader (and another …

PhantomJS returns a GIF to Rails (the call from step 4)

Rails returns the GIF and caches it into a file ( Rails page caching)

Email client or web browser renders the GIF

All this sounds pretty complex, but it's actually implemented in just about a hundred lines of code.

There's a few tricky things you have to deal with when installing Phantom.js on a Linux server, such as adding fonts that may not be part of your default Linux server setup, but it's …

Chrome and Safari headers are effectively useless - we accept everything! Firefox and IE aren't doing much better. Opera is the only one explicitly enumerating the supported filetypes, which is the behavior we want, albeit it also adds some unnecessary types at the front.
