I purchased the Isotope commercial license a few months back and I actually bought the Packery one today. I'm not really concerned with the nuances or semantics of the licensing.
The GPL is even more stringent in that it doesn't allow you to further restrict the usage of others.
It's less about the cost and more about the fact that they don't understand open source licensing.
Not sure how feasible this would be, but what I'd be overjoyed to see is a way to push the resource over to something like Codepen.io (or something on Unheap's end) so you could tinker with it and have all of these spin-offs of people actually customizing the resource that Unheap could also link to. It'd act as additional inspiration, give people more of a reason to use the site, get more designers into code without the setup hassle, and help the plugin author better sell his/her skills as a developer vs. as a designer and likewise, better sell the designer as someone capable of working with code.
He is asking to see the live demo link to be running on codepen.io. So there is more collaboration via forks, hacks.
Think: There can be more possibilities of using the same plugin via contributions and forks.
Suppose you're writing a web page with AngularJS.
Then you find out that you need a component that is very self-contained and of general use - let's say it is a WYSIWYG editor and let's pretend this thing doesn't exist yet (you will have to write it). Now the question:
Do you write it depending on AngularJS, or just JQuery?
«Angular was built for the CRUD application in mind. (...) Games, and GUI editors are examples of very intensive and tricky DOM manipulation. These kinds of apps are different from CRUD apps, and as a result are not a good fit for Angular. In these cases using something closer to bare metal such as jQuery may be a better fit.»
It seems to me that the main question was: if I am already using AngularJS to develop a web page/app, is it better to develop every needed self-contained component in AngularJS or can I mix JQuery-only components with AngularJS-based code?
So my answer, citing the official AngularJS documentation, was: no problem mixing AngularJS and JQuery, but some self-contained components ‒ such as a WYSIWYG editor ‒ maybe don't fit well with the AngularJS architecture.
If you think that I'm missing the point yet, would you mind to elaborate on that? Thanks.
Suggestion: make all navigation ajax-based and display the items right away (don't wait until all items are finished loading). This will make your site much-much more faster.
If you add a donate button, I will happily donate :)
also, the form field of the search bar looked confusing to me. I would make it a little less subtle to find it easier.
Also, when clicking the tabs on the left the sub menu slides out and the page reloads shortly after. Perhaps it should only reload when you click the "All x" submenu item?
I'd consider making all of the hover animations snappier (side menu, tooltips, etc). They look neat, but feel sluggish.
