The fastest way to build a website is to use a readymade website template, plus do some customization (depending on your requirements). And when a few years ago that was the choice of small companies and bloggers, today even the largest corporations opt for these tactics. Indeed, why reinvent the wheel if you can use the achievements of hundreds of professionals for a nominal price?
Today we are pleased to introduce you to one of the most promising web-design products of 2016 – an ultimate HTML5 template dubbed Intense.
What is “Intense”?
Demo | More Info
In general, Intense is a multipurpose HTML5 website template with hundreds of readymade pages, but it’s too versatile to be given a precise definition. It was conceived as a one-stop solution, and that’s why it is jam-packed with pages, design components and plugins. And since it’s a pure HTML template, and not a CMS theme, you can easily pick only the elements you need for your current project without digging into the code too deeply. That’s why Intense can grow exponentially, but remain convenient and easy-to-use at the same time. Read the rest of this entry »

MaintainableCSS is an approach to architecting and writing CSS that helps you and your team write modular, scalable and maintainable code. In practical terms, this means that as a developer I want to create new features, or edit existing features without having to concern myself with overriding styles I don’t want applied, or worse that the code I write causes regression elsewhere.
MaintainableCSS is not something you can download. It’s a set of principles, guides and conventions that help you write CSS for large or small scale websites. Having maintainable code means that I can edit a module and it’s styles without worrying that I have negatively caused problems in other modules by accident. I want to be able to to write code that provides peace of mind knowing that my code is encapsulated. Write CSS without worrying that overzealous, pre-existing styles will cause problems. MaintainableCSS is an approach to writing modular, scalable and of course, maintainable CSS.

Today Codrops has shared an Interactive 3D Mall Map experiment with us. The idea is to show a mall map with all its floors in perspective. Additionally, we have a search in a sidebar that allows to filter mall spaces. Once a floor is selected, we show some pins as indicators for the different stores/spaces.
When clicking on a pin, we show some more details of that space. We’ve mostly used CSS trickery for this, applying transitions that will rotate and move the levels by adding or removing classes. The levels are represented by inline SVGs. This concept can be applied to any kind of floor map actually; any building that has several floors and spaces could be an interesting use case for this.

Pagekit is a lightweight open source CMS built with Vue.js and Symfony components. It allows users to create beautiful websites and offers a modern codebase for interested web developers. Pagekit features a user friendly admin interface, static pages, a blog and beautiful themes and extensions, which can be installed directly from the included Marketplace.
What looks good on the interface level, should also extend to a strong foundation. Extensibility is one of the core ideas of Pagekit. On the code level, pretty much everything is a Module object: a theme, an extension, a widget and the core functionality itself. This keeps code complexity to a minimum, as developers can work with the same concept in many different places.
Pagekit is extended through themes and extensions and manages them using the power of Composer. Install packages right from the browser, using the command line or by requiring them in your project definition. No need to distribute the package dependencies with your extensions. Pagekit will get and share the required libraries during the package’s installation.
Pagekit is an Open Source project and is published under MIT license. It’s hosted on GitHub and open for everyone to contribute. Read the rest of this entry »
