Create a Chat Server in 12 Lines of Code with NowJS

Posted · Category: Framework, License Free

NowJS is a NodeJS module. The client javascript (now.js) is served by the NowJS server. NowJS creates a magic namespace “now”, accessible by server and client. Functions and variables added to now are automatically synced, in real-time.

You can call easily client functions from the server and server functions from the client. That means you can push to the client simply by calling a client-side Javascript function on the server. Communication is achieved using Socket.io

NowJS v0.2 is supported in Chrome, Opera, Safari, Firefox, and IE9. Support for older version of IE is coming.


Requirements: Node.js and Socket.io

CSS3 Text to Path Generator

Posted · Category: License Free, Tools

CSS3Warp is a proof of concept: create Illustrator like “warped” text (text following an irregular path) with pure CSS and HTML.

CSS3 brings new text-transform options: rotation, skew, matrix, transform-origin… By applying the right transformations to every single letter it is possible to create the illusion of text following a path.

Type your text into the webform, click “Warp it!”, then alter the path as you like. You can attach your text to a circle or a bezier. Add or delete points, or change position, angle and radius of the circle. When your done, click “Generate code”. Copy the CSS and HTML into your document.

HSL Color Picker For Web Designer

Posted · Category: Color Schemes, License Free

HSL (Hue, Saturation, Luminosity) allows us to describe meaningful relationships between colors. Give this brown color, hsl(36, 73%, 10%), it’s clear that if we desaturate 40 steps and lighten 70 steps we get hsl(36, 33%, 80%), a cream color. HSL Color Picker can help you with this.

In graphics software, it feels more natural to work with HSB (Hue, Saturation, Brightness) than RGB or CMYK. Now, with CSS3 we can use HSL which is actually quite different than HSB. Without a decent HSL color picker, it’s difficult to understand.

D3 is a small, free JavaScript library for manipulating HTML documents based on data. D3 can help you quickly visualize your data as HTML or SVG, handle interactivity, and incorporate smooth transitions and staged animations into your pages.

This gives D3 extraordinary flexibility, exposing the full capabilities of underlying technologies such as CSS3, HTML5 and SVG. It avoids learning a new intermediate proprietary representation.
