July 2016 Review
My collection of articles / tips / tricks / talks / screencasts / code snippets that I’ve found interesting throughout the course of July. Enjoy!
A great read on all the other aspects that Front End Developers need to be (at least) aware of.
DigitalOcean is launching block storage so that you can keep everything on their servers. A nice alternative to Amazon S3 and great if you are already a DigitalOcean customer.
I great article outlining the importance of the composer.lock file in your php projects.
A cool little app that generates pretty colors for you!
Love this package! Will definitely be using this for any forms that require input formatting (mostly payment forms).
Jump between characters in Sublime Text 3 without using a mouse at ease. Still trying to get used to this and trying to minimize my mouse usage while coding. Note, there are key conflicts with this plugin and the popular emmet plugin. I used the FindKeyConflicts plugin to find them and used the info on this page to turn off those keybindings in emmet.
Really cool Command Line Interface built on open web standards.
A useful command line tool to retrieve the password of your currently connected wifi.
A curated (opinionated) list of the 40 best Google fonts. Also check out the rest of the site, he has some wonderful resources and content on typography.
A wonderful infographic of the evolution of the PHP language.
Presentation framework based on the power of CSS3 transforms and transitions. I am impressed!
An excellent walkthrough of some basic design principles to enhance the UX of your website.
