Javan started out working with Ruby on Rails and after a couple of years applied for a job at Basecamp (then known as 37 Signals). Javan then started working with CoffeeScript which helped him understand working with JavaScript.Charles and Javan talk about the projects Javan is working on currently at Basecamp.

JavaScript Jabber

Sponsors Datadog Sentry use code “devchat” for 2 months free Panel Aimee Knight Chris Ferdinandi Christopher Beucheler AJ O’Neal With Special Guest: Javan MakhmaliEpisode SummaryToday’s guest is Javan Makhmali, who works for Basecamp and helped develop Trix. Trix is a rich text editor for the web, made purposefully simple for everyday use instead of a full layout tool. Trix is not the same as Tiny MCE, and Javan discusses some of the differences. He talks about the benefits of using Trix over other native browser features for text editing. He talks about how Trix has simplified the work at Basecamp, especially when it came to crossing platforms. Javan talks more about how Trix differs from other text editors like Google Docs and contenteditable, how to tell if Trix is functioning correctly, and how it works with Markdown.The panel discusses more specific aspects of Trix, such as Exec command. One of the features of Trix is it is able to output consistently in all browsers and uses semantic, clean HTML instead of classnames. Javan talks about how Trix handles getting rid of the extraneous cruft of formatting when things are copy and pasted, the different layers of code, and the undo feature. He talks about whether or not there will be more features added to Trix. The panel discusses who could benefit from using Trix. The show finishes with Javan talking about Basecamp’s decision to make Trix open source and why they code in CoffeeScript. Links Trix Tiny MCE Contenteditable Markdown SVG HTML CoffeeScript Follow DevChat on Facebook and Twitter PicksJavan Makhmali:API for form submissionsChris Ferdinandi: CSS Grid Alex Russel Twitter thread How To Live a Vibrant Life with Early Stage Dementia AJ O’Neal: Mario and Chill Chip Tunes 4 Autism: Catharsis Toilet Auger Christopher Beucheler: Medium to Own blogAimee Knight:Absolute Truth Unlearned as Junior DeveloperSpecial Guest: Javan Makhmali.
