    Toru Miki: レスポンシブ・イメージのWordPressへの実装と4.4

    WordCamp Tokyo 2015Speaker: Toru Miki

    January 20, 2016 — Ethan Marcotte 氏がレスポンシブ・ウェブデザインを提唱して5年以上経ちますが、未だ完全な解決策が無い問題として「レスポンシブ・ウェブデザインにおける画像(レスポンシブ・イメージ)の問題」があります。


    しかし、ようやく、最近になって解決への道しるべが作られてきています。picture 要素や srcset 属性などのレスポンシブ・イメージを実現する仕様が含まれるHTML 5.1が草案(Working Draft)となり、多くのブラウザでも対応が進んでいます。

    このセッションでは、RICG Responsive Images プラグインと、このプラグインの 4.4 へのマージについてお話し、srcset 属性と sizes 属性の WordPress へのネイティブ実装をどのように実現するかご紹介します。

    注:時間の都合上、レスポンシブ・イメージの詳細な仕様は紹介しません。srcset 属性と sizes 属性についておさらいしておくことをオススメします。

  • Jacques Surveyer: Image Grid Plugins

    Jacques Surveyer: Image Grid Plugins

    WordCamp Toronto 2015Speaker: Jacques Surveyer

    January 16, 2016 — The rallying cry for WordPress has become an Apple take-off “there is a free plugin for that”. So the premium plugins have to offer substantial value to win over developers. Here are two image grid plugins, Justified Image Grid and Essential Grid, that offer just such value.

    Responsive image grids that work well on mobile and desktop screens.
    Ability to incorporate portrait, landscape, and varying dimensions images in the same masonry layout image grid.
    Add styled captions, links, and shortcodes to images.
    Use a variety of image sources including WP gallery, NextGen, FaceBook, Flickr, Instagram, etc.
    Provide an image grid of feature Posts based on taxonomy, category, or date.
    Provide a variety of lightboxes for magnification of images with captions.
    Allow for page or load more infinite image scrolling.
    Provide filtering of images displayed in the grid with buttons along the top for All, Tagged, Category, Etc filters.
    Provide a variety of styling options for individual images and the grid as a whole.
    I compare the best of the free image plugins with these features.
    (Disclosure: I am not now nor will be in the future be an affiliate for either of these vendors or their representatives. The motivation: several times for $28 or less these plugins saved my bacon by lowering cost of development by hundreds of dollars while delivering advanced and winning features to clients.)

    Learning Outcomes:

    – Outline the key uses of image grids in WordPress development.
    – Demonstrate the advantage of responsive grids in mobile design.
    – Show how image grids can display mixed size plus portrait and landscape images well in a masonry layout.
    – Create a visual sitemap for a website.
    – Create an instant shopping cart grid for an array of products.
    – Help answer the question when to consider a premium plugin.
