Could you share some amazing apps, tools, or services that you have come across recently and thought deserve more spotlight?

Some of my recent discoveries would include:

FontJoy - an online tool for exploring different font combinations.

Neumorphism -an online tool for generating CSS shadows.

Tails - it is an amazing drag and drop page builder for TailwindCSS. It lets you create pages super quickly with some truly awesome TailwindCSS components.

It is still not officially out. I’ve got the beta version to play with and I’m super impressed.

I used it to build the website for my DigitalOcean + DEV Hackaton submission.

My goodness thank you! I've been looking for a good (react-static & cuttlebelle are wonky) based SSG that I could later spec into a custom CMS for my blog...starting from scratch doesn't fit time constraints | Tina is perfect!

Even though tricky to setup, can seamlessly integrate with gatsby and does great job in creating custom components. Check for the latest updated version.

It's kinda minor, but I just discovered the multiple cursor functionality in VS Code. Last night I had to transcribe a quiz from a Google doc into an array of questions, and the ability to just strip punctuation off multiple lines at a time is great.
