With 90 detailed hacks, expert web developers Jesse Cravens and Jeff Burtoft demonstrate intriguing uses of HTML5-related technologies. Each recipe provides a clear explanation, screenshots, and complete code examples for specifications that include Canvas, SVG, CSS3, multimedia, data storage, web workers, WebSockets, and geolocation.

You’ll also find hacks for HTML5 markup elements and attributes that will give you a solid foundation for creative recipes that follow. The last chapter walks you through everything you need to know to get your HTML5 app off the ground, from Node.js to deploying your server to the cloud.

Here are just a few of the hacks you’ll find in this book:

  • Make iOS-style card flips with CSS transforms and transitions

  • Use Canvas to create high-res Retina Display-ready media
  • Make elements on your page user-customizable with editable content
  • Cache media resources locally with the filesystem API

  • Process image data with pixel manipulation in a dedicated web worker
