Best Practices for Designing a Pragmatic RESTful API | Vinay Sahni

Your data model has started to stabilize and you're in a position to create a public API for your web app. You realize it's hard to make significant changes to your API once it's released and want to get as much right as possible up front. Now, the internet has no shortage on opinions on API design. But, since there's no one widely adopted standard that works in all cases, you're left with a bunch of choices: What formats should you accept? How should you authenticate? Should your API be versioned?

Favicons Next To External Links | CSS-Tricks

(via)
I've had this JSFiddle from CSS Wizardry open for like 2 weeks in my browser. I kept thinking about it, because before that I got an email from someone asking about essentially the same thing and it stuck in my head. They were wanting to insert a favicon next to links and use only CSS to do it. Unfortunately I haven't found a way to do exactly that, but using some jQuery we can do it pretty easily.

At present, there are over 3.5 million entries covering 36 different languages and this number increases every week.

Supersonic Feet - the blog of Adam Perfect

With all our new work we're trying to make everything degrade much more gracefully if you don't have Javascript enabled. Normally using the Google Maps API if a user doesn't have Javascript enabled, they just won't see a map. Working with Natalie from Clearleft I think we came up with a pretty good solution that uses progressive enhancement to ensure everyone gets a map, even without JS.

A List Apart: Articles: Take Control of Your Maps

by 4 others (via)
We live in the era of Google Maps. What started off as an impressive refresh of Mapquest-style maps now fuels web mashups. With APIs official and unofficial, Google Maps is simple enough for front-end designers to embed and for back-end programmers to target. Along the way to becoming nearly ubiquitous, it has played a major role in the “democratization of mapping.” For the practical developer who wants to add geospatial information to a site or application, the Google Maps API has been an easy call.
