    I'm familiar with how character encodings work. And I've felt that pain in other scenarios when dealing with user input copy/pasted from MS Word. It's just never been a problem for me in a text editor or IDE. I'm not contesting your assertion of Sublime 3 missing this feature, but my Google searches aren't returning any results with people reporting the issue.

    I don't like Sublime text. I've tried the 2nd edition and not being able to know or change the charset is really a deal breaker for me...

    You can easily change your character encoding with Sublime.

    I don't do PHP development, so no advice on *AMP variants, but as far as editors I'd recommend Sublime 3. It's fast, really customizable, and has tons of good plugins. I hear good things about Brackets, but also hear that it's slower. Last time I tried Atom it was nowhere near ready and also slow compared to Sublime. You might also check out WebStorm. I used its big brother, IntelliJ Idea, for years to do Java, web, and mobile development and it was a solid IDE. Webstorm is obviously a lot smaller and web-focused than Idea.

    I'm curious why you're moving to Windows. No judgement here. I've done plenty of development on Windows machine in the past. It just wouldn't be my first choice. Windows 10 game changer for development?
  4. In Topic: Make al <p> elements appear in alphabetical order

    Posted 18 May 2015

    Are we assuming that the <p> elements will all be under the same parent node or will they be spread throughout the document in different sibling elements? Your example implies one parent <body> element, so I'll go with that.

    Your best bet is to first get all <p> elements.


    1. You'll get back a NodeList, so you'll need to convert that to an array (Easy enough to google).
    2. Take that array, sort it using a custom sorting function that uses the textContent property of each <p> element.
    3. Next iterate over each element in the sorted list and append it to the body.
  5. In Topic: [Discussion] Meteor and the fast evolving JS world

    Posted 18 May 2015

    I tried Meteor back in 2012 and thought it was pretty interesting. As far as frameworks go it's definitely a scalpel. And as with most opinionated frameworks, if your needs fall within the sweet spot then it's great. I haven't yet had a need to use it professionally, but I'd definitely give it a look if I had need for real time data updates.
