I’ve been occupied with web development the last few months and thought I’d share some of the resources/development tools I’ve come across
I often struggle with what colours compliment other colours when designing a website. Thankfully I don’t need to take a design class to learn this skill. At coloursontheweb.com, their colour wizard application provides a convenient method for selecting colours and finding out what other colours are complimentary.
Developing a website template but don’t have any written content yet? Not a problem. Simply head over to lipsum.com to generate some dummy text for you site, and see what your template will look like with pages of content.
Looking for a unique font for your site? Or perhaps you want your site’s title to stand out from the body of the page? If so, perhaps Google fonts can help. Google provides a wide selection of different fonts which can be easily added to any site.
Now that you’ve added that fancy Google font to your site, you’re probably wondering what type of font compliments it for the main body of your page. Font Pair solves this problem for you, by providing a list of suggestions for a variety of different fonts.
Are you a poor speller? Or perhaps you have fat fingers like me? If you frequently make typos, than perhaps typosaur.us can help. Typosaurus provides a simple tool which allow users to submit their website URL and have Typosaurus check it for errors.
Font Awesome is a CSS library containing icon art. If you’re in need of a clean icon for your social media section of your home page, or simply lack graphic design skills but want to include an image on your site. Than take a look at font awesome. It’s a great library, which is easy to use and can add some extra polish to any design.
