IxEDIT: No coding for Javascript/jQuery

Generally, JavaScript is needed to implement interactions on a web page. It is hard to manage JavaScript for many designers because of no programming experience. Therefore, making well-designed web interactions is difficult in general. IxEdit solves this problem. IxEdit is a JavaScript-based interaction design tool for the web. If you have basic knowledge about HTML and CSS, you can create interactions as you like. JavaScript coding is no longer needed. With IxEdit, designers can practice DOM-scripting without coding to change, add, move, or transform elements dynamically on your web pages. Especially, IxEdit must be useful to try various interactions rapidly in the prototyping phase of your web application.

See following demo:

It is to be embedded in the HTML you are editing. Firefox, Safari, Chrome, or IE becomes your interaction development environment. The interactions you create will be applied on-the-fly to the web page, so you can edit them while checking how they behave in real time.

It generates JavaScript code automatically from the parameters you specified. The generated JavaScript code is designed to run with jQuery and jQuery UI. You don’t need to care about cross-browser compatibility since jQuery does it for you.

Deal with exam fear

Tomorrow, Final exams of 5th semester of my BsCs going to start. I am very much worried. I felt that i have to be calm.So, I did a try to  written this post for students having fear of exams.Read it and pray for me.

is often a universal cry that students have to do away with exams. Some of course love doing them as it is a chance to perform! If you have a strong dislike for exams or get overly anxious when exam season comes around, you need to do something about it as it certainly does affect your performance.

  1. Prepare early : Predicting what is important and what is not  an easy task for students.  If you want to do well on your exam you have got to start working on your syllabus early. The more you cover, the more confident you will feel.
  2. Prepare all the essentials you need: It is often the biggest mistake students make when they rush off to exams with a sleepy and panicked mind. Make sure you keep everything in place the night before such as extra pens, geometry set, logarithmic tables, and more.
  3. Last minute cramming: No matter how much you prepare, there may be some surprises. You need to do your best, but perhaps you could not cover every little bit. The important thing is to stay calm and not try to cram too much new information before entering the hall, you will simply get nervous.
  4. Believe in yourself: You need to know that you cannot always ace everything. Losing out on one subject should not make you doubt your abilities. Remember a lot of the big names like Benjamin Franklin, Billionaire Jim Clark (of Netscape fame), Richard Branson were all school dropouts.  The moral is not to skip school, but rather to do something with your learning than just score high marks.
  5. Get proper sleep and eat well: Remember, to perform you need ample rest and relaxation. You can take music therapy or meditation if you have a serious panic attack problem when it comes to exams. Else just eat a light meal, sleep well and don’t overdose on coffee the night before your exams.

Topicmarks Summarizes Long Texts For You

Ever come across a lengthy Malcolm Gladwell New Yorker essay that all your unemployed friends will probably  be talking about later, but you simply don’t have time in betweentweeting working to read?

Well Founder Showcase winner Topicmarks was made for the case of Gladwell and even denser documents like research papers and legal texts, breaking them down into digestible pieces when all you really need to read is an executive summary.

Using semantic text extraction and personalization technologies, Topicmarks extracts text from the .pdf, .doc, .html and .txt documents that you upload, copy/paste, email in or enter the URL of. The service then gives you the option to view the “Overview,””Facts,””Summary” and”Keywords” of the document as well as “Properties” where you can see the original source. You can also interact with the “Overview” in a multitude of ways, including searching by key word and adding more or less text to the summary as needed.

Topicmarks is like a more-fleshed out TL;DR, with an “an enormous breadth of possible applications across various use cases and verticals” says co-founder Roland Siebelink. It has the same aspirations as enterprise solutions Autonomy and OpenText but available for free to consumers within a certain usage amount.

When given the criticism that the Topicmarks.com site sure had a lot of text on it for a service that summarized text (specifically, “Maybe you should run Topicmarks through Topicmarks?”) Siebelink told me, “Up to now the site has been geared particularly towards power users who understand how the technology works, now we’re focused on polishing the interface for the general audience who does not want to know how it works.”

Ambitiously, Roland says his future plans are to make the summarization technology readily available across all devices, “wherever people read digital information.” Topicmarks is currently raising a 500K seed round.
