Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Suddenly, everyone’s talking about HTML5, and ready or not, you need to get acquainted with this powerful new development in web and application design. Some of its new features are already being implemented by existing browsers, and much more is around the corner.

 

Written by developers who have been using the new language for the past year in their work, this book shows you how to start adapting the language now to realize its benefits on today’s browsers. Rather than being just an academic investigation, it concentrates on the practical—the problems HTML5 can solve for you right away. By following the book’s hands-on HTML5 code examples you’ll learn:

  • new semantics and structures to help your site become richer and more accessible

  • how to apply the most important JavaScript APIs that are already implemented

  • the uses of native multimedia for video and audio
  • techniques for drawing lines, fills, gradients, images and text with canvas

  • how to build more intelligent web forms
  • implementation of new storage options and web databases
  • how geolocation works with HTML5 in both web and mobile applications

Synopsis:

HTML5 is coming, and it’s time to get acquainted. Written by developers who are interested in building things, this practical book shows you how to use the language in ways you can apply starting today. Rather than being an academic investigation, it concentrates on the problems HTML5 can already solve. Parts of the spec that are still evolving or not yet implemented are discussed in context. Through hands-on examples you’ll discover what HTML5 is—and isn’t--good for. Just a few of the things you’ll learn about include:

 

  • special forms and new input types
  • handling video & audio
  • using Canvas for drawing lines and shapes, specifying colors and more
  • transformations and animations
  • new storage options and web databases
  • attributes extending the DOM
  • bonus information on geolocation and how it works with HTML5
