The last weeks was really inspiring and I found some great resources. Time to honor those and some older ones with this blog post.
You start a new project based on Angular, Sass and like to use the lastest HTML and CSS3 features. If you look up something in the documentation then you have to deal with three or four different websites.
The solution to this problem is devdocs.io.
This website allows to create your own set of API documentation.
The list of currently supported documentations is enormous and will be extended in future. An offline version that requires no setup is planned for the future.
INPUT Font by Font Bureau
This is for font and development nerds like me that always wanted to have a better looking font in the code editor they currently use.
“Input is a flexible system of fonts designed specifically for code by David Jonathan Ross. It offers both monospaced and proportional fonts, all with a large range of widths, weights, and styles for richer code formatting.”
There are 168 different font styles available in this font family. Enough to make your code look unique just as you like it.
Emmet — the essential toolkit for web-developers. I can’t describe it better than that. It’s a plugin for text editors such as TextMate, Sublime, or NotePad++ that allows you to short code your html.
I’ll give you a short example. If you like to create an unordered list with four elements. The list finally looks like this.
With Emmet all that needs to be written is this simple line.
After pressing CTRL+E or whatever key is defined in your editor it compiles this single line in the code above. Sadly, Visual Studio is currently not listed of supported text editor list.
Make sure to check out the emmet demo on their web site.
