Create Apps Now with HTML5 Boilerplate 4.0


Some things take years to understand, like Exchange’s PowerShell cmdlets for example. But a person doesn’t necessarily need to know everything about cmdlets to serve as an administrator for hosted email. Innovative tools seem to arise from everywhere, presenting everyone an opportunity to achieve things that would otherwise require a specialized education. With the fourth version of HTML5 Boilerplate, anybody can be equipped with the tools needed to develop apps, without needing to know all the Javascript.

Professionals are drawn towards HTLM5 Boilerplate’s websites for assistance in creating hosted e-mail services or mobile apps, and the list of clients who use these services is quite impressive. Queness.com calls HTML5 Boilerplate, “The professional bad ass’s bass HTML/CSS (News - Alert)/JS template for a fast, robust and future-safe site.”

And according to the press release that announced the debut of the latest version, there are additional features that make this version God’s answer to app developers. The new website is called “snazzy” by some, but there is much more to version 4.0 that stands out besides the revamped branding.

The new version is presented with a slogan that’s straight to the point: “Save time. Create with Confidence.” What will assist in saving time are “helpers” such as Normalize.css v.1.0.x, which is described as a “HTML5 ready-alternative to CSS resets.” Version 4.0 is also equipped with icons for touch-controlled mobile devices, analytics, jQuery and Modernizer, and Apache settings for high performance.

Among the many fans of HTML5 Boilerplate is Barack Obama who uses his template to collect donations and e-mail addresses in support of his campaign against “Romney Economics.” Microsoft (News - Alert) is also a fan of HTML5 Boilerplate, utilizing its services to promote its new tablet. Retail enterprises such as Nike and Racing Green are also clients of the acclaimed developer tool.
