Here are some of the tools that are mentioned in the ebook.

Devhints

A ridiculous collection of web development cheatsheets.

Devhints

A wide variety of cheatsheets to explore. They are well organized into a component style to understand better. They have cheatsheets for HTML, CSS, JavaScript, React, Vue, ExpressJS, and many more. It has cheatsheets for more than 25 topics, which are further divided into sub-topics.


Brackets

Brackets - A modern, open-source code editor that understands web design.

Brackets

A minimalist code editor especially made for web developers. It has features such as a live server pre-installed to provide you automatic refresh for your web page as you edit. You can use the code editor for the minimalistic and live server features.


UI Design Daily

Free, Open-source UI design resources are updated daily.

UI Design Daily

I have used the UI design daily to get inspiration and find UI design for React components. It has many mockups for components such as Card, Buttons, Forms, log-in, and others.


Error 404

Error 404

It’s a fun web page to explore for 404-page errors. It has a lot of free illustrations related to a 404(Not found) error page. You can download and use it in your designs and web pages. There are also examples, you look into for inspiration.


Hover.css

Hover.css - A collection of CSS3-powered hover effects

Hover.css

An awesome collection of CSS3-powered hover animation/transition for links and buttons. There are different categories for animation such as 2D Transitions, Icons, Curls, and others. In total, there are 7 categories. Integrate the library in your application with NPM, CDN script, or downloaded CSS file.


Tailwind CSS

Tailwind CSS - Rapidly build modern websites without ever leaving your HTML.

Tailwind CSS

It’s a utility-first CSS framework. With Tailwind CSS, you can directly add CSS to your HTML/JSX components. Many developers have been using this framework for building their sites as it requires less time to write CSS code.


Railway

Railway is an infrastructure platform where you can provision infrastructure, develop with that infrastructure locally, and then deploy it to the cloud.

Railway

As of November 2022, Heroku is ending its free tier and Railway is one of the best alternatives for Heroku to deploy your backend. It supports Node Js, Django, Laravel, Kotlin spring, ruby, and others. It also has pre-defined templates that you can use while deploying the backend.


JSONVue

Validate and view JSON documents

JSONVue

It’s one of the most recommended extensions for the prettier versions of JSON data. Whenever I am dealing with public APIs for getting data such as weather. The API data is in form of JSON. By default, our web page displays all the data in inline format. This extension converts the data into a prettier format to understand the structure of JSON easily.


Flexbox Defence

Your job is to stop the incoming enemies from getting past your defenses. Unlike other tower defense games, you must position your towers using CSS!

Flexbox Defence

It’s an online game to play while learning CSS flexbox. It is simple, as you write code, your defense will be placed on the map. Your defense should be in the path of the enemy to defend you. For positioning your defense, you are going to use CSS flex and its properties. It’s fun and you can learn CSS flexbox’s properties.


Habitica

Habitica is a free habit and productivity app that treats your real life like a game. Habitica can help you achieve your goals to become healthy and happy.

Habitica

Habits are one of the building blocks for achieving bigger goals. I have been using Habiticas for managing my to-do list along with building habits. It’s a gamified version of a to-do list with a variety of stuff to do. I like how Habitica manages recurring tasks and habits.
