Combinators in CSS is term used to define a style that combines more than one selectors together.

For example let's say you have the following markup

        <div id="combinator-div"><h1>I'll be back.</h1></div>
        <h1>Combinator me</h1>

Let's say you only want to apply the styles for the <h1> tag that's inside the combinator-div, you can use a combinator style which is a combination of the div id and the h1 tag as combination to style a very specific element on the page.  The style would look like the following

#combinator-div h1 {font-family: sans-serif; font-weight: bold; color: green;}

If you run the page with the code then you would get the following output

As you can see only the I'll be back <h1> is styled, the other <h1> is just not cool enough to get styled.

In our previous post we created some mockups, now we are going to create some user stories so that we can started development with some idea of what should be included in the application.  This is just a quick planning session.

We'll pretend like we are running a Sprint, we can think of this as a very loose Sprint planning.

Sprint 1 User Stories;

  • As a user I should be able to view my accounts. (2 pts)
  • As a user I should be view my user profile. (1 pt)
  • As a user I should be able to view my account details. (2 pts)
  • As a user I should be able to view my past transactions. (1 pt)
  • As a user I should be able to view my upcoming transactions ( 1 pt)
  • As a user I should be able to search my transactions (2 pts)
Sprint 2 User Stories:
  • As a user I should be able to transfer money from my account (1 pt)
  • As a user I should be able to withdrawal money from my account (1 pt)
  • As a user I should be able to deposit money from my account (1 pt)
  • As a user I should be able to withdrawal money from my account (1 pt)

In the previous post we created the JavaScript business objects in our AngularJS application.  While that's great and all we should we really take a step back create some rough mockups of our banking application so that we will know what we will be building.

First let's mock up the home page:

On our home page we have a profile section were we can access our account/profile. Then we have the ACME bank logo/branding, and finally the accounts that we have in the bank.

The next mock-up is the the Accounts Details page, when we click on one of the accounts:

As you can see from the mock-up it's pretty straightforward.  You have an identification of the account, then a display of upcoming  transactions, and past transactions.  There's also a search box for searching of transactions.

Finally we have the Money Transfer screen which enables the users to transfer money into and out of the account.  It just has the basic information, where the money is coming from, where it's going to, the transfer date, the amount and the transfer button.

As you can see the mock-up is pretty simple and easy to change.  Actually it's just pen and paper.  I am a big fan of low-fidelity design.  Meaning simple and low effort.  We can change it anytime.
