If I didn’t know any better, I’d say standards bodies and browsers (those responsibility for crafting/implementing CSS) are starting to care about designers. Another big win from the Adobe Web Platform team.
Back when Flash was all the rage, one would find experimental sites like this all the time. It seems less common in the HTML5 world, which really makes this a gem.
If you use Panic’s Coda web-development app, thanks and guess what! We have 2 exciting new things for you. Coda 2, a seriously beefed-up (and trimmed-down) update. And Diet Coda, the potent portable iPad version for quick fixes on the go. It’s serious business.
Not my current editor of choice, but this looks like a very impressive upgrade.
I recently presented at Philly Emerging Tech for the Enterprise on the benefits of abstracting CSS with Sass and Compass. While I don’t thoroughly cover every feature available, the session is almost entirely a live coding session, so it hopefully shows how easy-to-use and powerful these tools can be.
I don’t often link to roundups, but this is a pretty fantastic set of websites for both design and development inspiration.
With the rise of Retina displays people are looking for resolution independent alternatives to PNG icons. Some fell in love with font-icons, some are shouting “SVG”. But I’m sorry, if you’re looking for a silver bullet, I’m afraid it doesn’t exist.
A great deep dive into the current strategies used for icons these days. Personally, because of the lack of effects (and their non-CSS/HTML nature) I generally avoid SVGs, but will mix icon fonts and plain-old sprites as it seems appropriate.
