Design Coolness #37 – iOS 7 Stuff, JQuery Plugins, Just A(nother) Blogging Platform and more

We are changing a bit the “Design coolness” section, in the sense that it will no longer be an inspirational series of articles. It will focus more on providing a weekly round-up of the most interesting articles and resources from the design field.

For this issue we have quite a few JQuery plugins, an HTML5 in-browser editor, a new way to host your websites, designer news and just a(nother) blogging platform.


Vinci is a powerful & lightweight html5 image editor that works in the browser. It can be fully customized, has an API and can be quickly integrated into your own app.

Adobe Generator for Photoshop CC

Generator allows you to create image assets in real time as you work, eliminating the tedious steps of copying, slicing and exporting each layer manually, and saving you hours of time. Simply add a file extension to the name of your layer or layer group, and Photoshop will automatically create a JPG, PNG or GIF from the contents of that layer.

CLNDR is a jQuery plugin for creating calendars. Unlike most calendar plugins, this one doesn’t generate markup. Instead you provide an Underscore.js HTML template and in return CLNDR gives you a wealth of data to use within it.



The problem with CSS alone is that they’re usually fired on page load or a hover event, and you can’t stack animations or trigger another when one has completed. That’s where JavaScript and animo come in. You can easily stack animations to fire one after another, specify callbacks for the completion of an animation, or simply fire animations on any event or at any moment you please.
