Nylon vs Polyester Leggings: Which is Better? Which Should You Choose?

I guess none of the readers of this article doesn’t have at least a pair of leggings.

The use of leggings has overcome its original purpose. As they were mainly used for exercise, now we see them worn more and more in everyday life. We can say that they have become a fashion trend.

The comfort, flexibility, and popularity of leggings have encouraged the fashion industry to offer choices of style, length, and design providing a wide range of options.

You know that moment you need to decide but you can’t make up your mind? I am sure you get confused by the design, and so do I.

But do you ever stop a second to think about the material?

I didn’t, until I started reading about fabric materials and their properties.

For those who are looking for more information to decide on their leggings and active-wear, especially between Nylon and Polyester, you’ll need to understand that these materials have their different levels of support/compression, sweat-wicking power, and durability.

Today we will compare these two well-known materials and give you an overview of each one of them.

Adidas vs Nike Running Shoes: Which Brand is Better?

Nike or Adidas? Today’s challenge is to answer this million-dollar question. You know, when I am at the mall or ordering online, I really cannot decide that easily between them, especially if it is the case of buying running shoes.

It is not necessary to talk about the importance and benefits of running shoes. We all use them for a reason, either to go running, training, or to go out.

We should feel lucky that trainers are even more IN now because they look so lovely even when worn with a suit. It has been a while now that the most influential fashion bloggers are “promoting” more and more running shoes.

Yes, everyone wants to be comfortable, but being comfortable and looking cool? This is the dream!

Nike and Adidas offer the design, quality, and comfort in most of their outdoor clothing and specifically in their running shoe collections.

To be honest, I have both of them and they are both very nice. But still, there are some slight differences between them, which I really want to share with you today.

Bootstrap 4 Sidebar Menu: Tutorial + Free Template

In the last few years, I’ve always been amazed by the beautiful admin templates created by different developers, using the Bootstrap framework and listed for sale on ThemeForest or WrapBootstrap, or just released for free to gain some exposure for their work.

The part of these templates that has really caught my attention and that has been very popular these days, is the collapsible sidebar menu.

This type of menu is not only very nice to see, but it also improves the user interface and usability of these templates, especially admin templates. Google has also used it as part of their Material Design style.

As you probably know UI and UX have been two very popular concepts in the last few years, making the internet full of articles about them, and I think learning how to improve them in your websites, templates and web apps is a good thing as it can increase users and returning visitors.

So, for fun, a few days ago I decided to learn how to create one of these sidebar menus using Bootstrap.

I have created many templates in the past but have never used this type of menu, and after asking the developer’s best friend, Google, I found this (very useful) tutorial by Ondrej.

After a few hours of study and work, I created a template with a beautiful sidebar menu and wrote this tutorial hoping that you can learn something from it too. Or just download the template and use it in your projects 😉 .

So, in a few words, if you don’t want to read all of the above, in this tutorial we’ll see how to create a page with a collapsible sidebar menu using Bootstrap.

Let’s get started!

Bootstrap vs Foundation: Which One is Better?

Web designing has come a long way throughout the years, as the number of people who took an interest in creating and purchasing websites grew in astonishing numbers.

Things went from simply focusing on practicality and functionality, to creating websites that are beyond impressive in their layout and dynamism.

But, what the regular web visitor or website buyer might not always realize is the amount of work and effort it takes to create these captivating websites that will make a project or business truly stand out.

However, as with most things, the first step behind any project is deciding what will it be created with, which brings us to today’s topic.

Deciding on the right framework to utilize for your next web design project is a very important part of the whole ordeal and it gets especially complicated when going through the several options available, and the suggestions about which one is better are overwhelming.

The discussion of Bootstrap vs. Foundation has been going on for years and a conclusion is yet to be drawn.

Our intention is to give you a general idea about what to expect from each of these two very popular frameworks and to help you decide which one would be the better choice for the project you intend to work on.

With that being said, let’s get started and hopefully you will have a better picture by the end of this article.

Bootstrap 4: How To Center Align a “Div” or “Form” Vertically and Horizontally

Bootstrap 4: How To Center Align a Div or Form Vertically and Horizontally

Centering an HTML element horizontally with CSS, be it a “div” or a “form”, has been always easy for web developers at least for the past 10 years or so.

But what about centering the same element vertically, so that it always remains in the center of the page or in the center of its parent element?

Well, this has been a very tricky task for years (at least for me) and some developers have also used JavaScript in some situations to obtain the desired result.

This has continued to be a problem, at least for me, until the advent of the CSS flexbox layout and the flexbox utilities offered in Bootstrap 4.

And that’s what we’ll be talking about in today’s tutorial.

We’ll see 3 examples where we take a “div” and a “form” and align them in the center, vertically and horizontally, using Bootstrap 4 (current version 4.3.1).

At the end of the tutorial, you can download all the files as handy templates.

Let’s begin!
