  • CSS Matic – “What You See Is What You Get” for CSS Developers

    Homepage

    Long gone are the times where we had to code CSS entirely by hand. It’s already been a while since more and more little helpers started to get created. These little helpers usually cover one single aspect of CSS and support it with a more or less elaborate graphical UI for visual development in the likes of WYSIWYG. Today I want to introduce you to a rather new service from Spain, which comes to cover four basic missions every CSS developer has to accomplish. The service is called CSS Matic and its creators are quite known in the field of web design.

  • PNG Optimization Online and Local: Can CompressPNG and ImageAlpha Dethrone TinyPNG?

    tinypng-screenshot

    If you are a regular reader, you will certainly remember TinyPNG, a fresh service, created by Voormedia from the Netherlands, that lets you compress PNGs easily and to a noticeable extent. Many of you, I know I did, will have integrated TinyPNG into their daily workflows. Around 70% less weight than before is what TinyPNG promises and almost always achieves, while you don’t even see the difference. A brand-new service from the Czech Republic by the name of CompressPNG has arrived, ready to dethrone TinyPNG. Chances are good, as you’ll see if you read on. Mac users will find a nifty alternative to both online services…

  • Mandatory for Web Developers: Free Video Tutorials on Chrome DevTools by Code School

    codeschool-devtools-01-w550

    Are there web developers who have never heard of Chrome DevTools? I don’t know of one single example. Chrome DevTools are a developer’s friend. Directly implemented into the browser, they deliver tools that are inescapable when it comes to web programming, especially the debugging part of it. Getting started with DevTools is not exactly complicated, but – as always – any help in accomplishing a faster start is greatly appreciated and lowers the inhibition threshold for newcomers. It is exactly such an entrance (and more) that the free video tutorial “Explore and Master Chrome DevTools” offers you.

  • Facebook? I Don’t Care!

    idontcarebuttonfacebook-teaser-w550

    The Maple Kind is a website with a distinct claim that reads “Where infographics meet comics and bullshit!” What urges its creators is to make you chuckle. This sure does sound much simpler than it is, but it definitely implies, how the following infoographic shall be read. Therein, the Maple Kind argues, why we need a new button on Facebook (a few more than one more, in fact). This new button shall be named ” I Don’t Care” and is bound to be the most widely used expression on Facebook, once it has been instated. Though the infographic in fact made me chuckle, The Maple Kind does not follow a far-fetched approach. Take a look at your own use of Facebook. What would you use more often? Like or I Don’t Care? I know what I would do, but I don’t see Facebook as anything of value for modern society anyway…

  • Social Media Image Maker: Photo-Editing One-Stop-Shop for Social Media Networkers

    socialmediaimagemaker

    Facebook, Twitter, Google+, then Pinterest, Tumblr, Xing or LinkedIn and what do I know where all you’ve set your flag, and are networking as networking can. All these services want you to maintain a proper profile and, if you really do think you should register practically anywhere, you should try your best to make a good impression. One main necessity to achieve this is adequate imagery. Even if you really have reasonable images for these use-cases at hand, that’s still where the problems begin. I don’t know of two social networks that share image resolutions or other specifications. You can’t simply upload the same picture to a zillion websites and hope for an adequate presentation. Instead you have to struggle with the same zillion different requirements when it comes down to even such a simple thing as a profile header-image. To further complicate the situation, social networks have fun changing their image-related specifications frequently. A new tool by the name of Social Media Image Maker promises relief…
