Resources that web designers could use – 30+ tools

I have gathered 30+ more tools and resources for you, new ones, of course, that could help you with your work. There are a lot of neat stuff in here, or like I like to say, a little something for everyone. Enjoy the resources, bookmark them and use them wisely.

Camera slideshow

Camera slideshow

Camera slideshow is tested on new browsers, but I tried to make it compatible with the old versions of Internet Explorer too (8 and 7). But I don’t think I will spend many hours to improve this feature, sorry.

978.gs

978.gs

The 978 grid system uses 12 columns at 54px, with extra roomy 30px gutters. This comes out to a total of 978px, which uses up most of the space on a 1024×768 monitor. Almost every computer and tablet in the world today is capable of displaying designs built on this grid.

Ajaxplorer

ajaxplorer

A modern browser is all that’s needed to access AjaXplorer : the interface is very similar to OS-native file explorers, and all users can find their way in it. Users can easily share files or folders over the Internet, preview and edit most common file formats directly online, without having to download/upload the files to/from their local computer.

AjaXplorer is another “brick” that you can install on your web server : you may know WordPress, Joomla! or other “web-based” softwares. It’s the same technology (PHP), and AjaXplorer is normally accessed via an URL such as http://yoursite.com/ajaxplorer/.

AjaXplorer comes fully equiped with a complete users management system, securing the whole installation at once. It can also be interfaced with existing authentication mechanisms, to implement a “Single-Sign On” system and make users life easier.

TYPEDJS

TYPEDJS

Harness the power of type annotations and program specifications to make your code robust. It’s easy to get started.

Sequence: The jQuery Slider Plugin with Infinite Style

Sequence: The jQuery Slider Plugin with Infinite Style

Sequence is the jQuery slider plugin with infinite style. It provides the complete functionality for a website slider without forcing you to use a set theme. In fact, Sequence has no in-built theme, leaving you complete creative control to build a unique slider using only CSS3 — no jQuery knowledge required!

PageScroller

Curtain.js

Curtain.js

This plugin allows you to create a web page with multiple fixed panels that unroll with an amusing effect. Exactly like a curtain rises.

To navigate, you can use your keyboard instead the scrollbar or your mousewheel to navigate into the document. But that’s not all, there is more features! For example, you can easily add a fixed element or multiple “steps” element into a pannel.

jQuery tubular

jQuery tubular is a plugin that places a YouTube video of your choice into your page as a background.

Tinycon

Tinycon

Tinycon allows the addition of alert bubbles and changing the favicon image. Tinycon gracefully falls back to a number in title approach for browsers that don’t support canvas or dynamic favicons.

Alerts in the favicon allow users to pin a tab and easily see if their attention is needed.

turn.js

turn.js

turn.js is a plugin for jQuery that adds a beautiful transition similar to real pages in a book or magazine for HTML5.

UIKit: Modern UI components for the modern web

UIKit is a small collection of flexible, decoupled jQuery JavaScript components for the modern web. With an emphasis on structure-only styling it’s easy to style UIKit to match your application, no preprocessor variables, just raw CSS structure! As a result most of the styling you see in this document is for demonstration only.

CodeMirror

CodeMirror

CodeMirror is a JavaScript library that can be used to create a relatively pleasant editor interface for code-like content ― computer programs, HTML markup, and similar. If a mode has been written for the language you are editing, the code will be coloured, and the editor will optionally help you with indentation.

Auto-detecting Credit Card Type

Auto-detecting Credit Card Type

There was a time when people thought the internet required a completely different payment method than the real world. After a very short period of time, everyone came to realize that credit cards were actually quite well-suited to the web, and so the credit card form was born.

Backstretch

Backstretch is a simple jQuery plugin that allows you to add a dynamically-resized background image to any page.

Kartograph

Kartograph

A simple and lightweight framework for creating beautiful, interactive vector maps. The core concept of Kartograph is to separate the mapping process in the map generation and map rendering part. The client-side library kartograph.js renders pre-generated maps stored in SVG files. You can chose among hundrets of ready-to-use maps or simply generate your own using kartograph.py, the open source Python SVG map generator.

jQuery File Upload

File Upload widget with multiple file selection, drag&drop support, progress bars and preview images for jQuery.

Morris.js

Morris.js

Making good-looking graphs shouldn’t be hard. Morris.js is a lightweight library that uses jQuery and Raphaël to make drawing time-series graphs easy.

XDate

XDate is a thin wrapper around JavaScript’s native Date object that provides enhanced functionality for parsing, formatting, and manipulating dates. It implements the same methods as the native Date, so it should seem very familiar.

Also, it is non-destructive to the DOM, so it can safely be included in third party libraries without fear of side effects.

TodoMVC

TodoMVC

Developers these days are spoiled with choice when it comes to selecting an MV* framework for structuring and organizing JavaScript web apps. Backbone, Spine, Ember (SproutCore 2.0), JavaScriptMVC… the list of new and stable solutions goes on and on, but just how do you decide on which to use in a sea of so many options?

To help solve this problem, we created TodoMVC – a project which offers the same Todo application implemented using MV* concepts in most of the popular JavaScript MV* frameworks of today.

Solutions look and feel the same, have a common simple feature-set and make it easy for you to compare the syntax and structure of different frameworks so you can select the one you feel the most comfortable with.

cssFx

cssFx

cssFx is a standalone polyfill that inserts the vendor-specific CSS3 properties necessary for old and new browsers. This saves you tons of time, maintenance, and bandwidth!

string.js

string.js, or simply S is a lightweight (< 2k Gzipped) JavaScript library for the browser or for Node.js that provides extra String methods. Originally, it modified the String prototype. But I quickly learned that in JavaScript, this is considered poor practice.

YouTube video background design ideas in PSD

Another series of Photoshop PSD files to share with you guys and girls. The last YouTube player button icon PSD file I posted here turned out to be pretty popular so I decided to do a series of YouTube video background border designs and share the PSDs here for everyone to use. I know as a designer, creating something that is needed all the time, from scratch every time, is no fun and gets kinda old real quick so once and for all, or for most projects anyway, here are the ready PSDs that you can dive into and edit as you like to apply to your project.

Download all of these file and feel free to use them as you please for your self or your business. Please link back to this page if you can.

250 + Stunning and creative flash animated websites

Originally developed by Macromedia, Flash was introduced in 1996, and is currently developed and distributed by Adobe Systems, as the result of their 2005 purchase of the company. The precursor to the Flash application was SmartSketch, a drawing application for pen computers running the PenPoint OS developed by Jonathan Gay, who began working on it in college and extended the idea for Silicon Beach Software and its successors. When PenPoint failed in the marketplace, SmartSketch was ported to Microsoft Windows and Mac OS. Once the Internet became more popular, SmartSketch was re-released as FutureSplash, a vector-based web animation in competition with Macromedia Shockwave. In 1995, SmartSketch was further modified with frame-by-frame animation features and released as FutureSplash Animator on multiple platforms.The product was offered to Adobe and used by Microsoft in its early work with the Internet (MSN). In 1996, FutureSplash was acquired by Macromedia and released as Flash, contracting “Future” and “Splash”. Since 1996 flash have change the web although it has its minuses for SEO purposes flash animated website have fascinated viewers with complex and realistic animations and special effects. And because of its capability to use utilize video, sound, 3d and other 3rd party special effects Flash will always be favorite tool to create stunning experience.
