Gravit releases ProjectX

Look out Canva! There are a ton of new players in town! Well, not in town so much as “probably on their way”. Maybe. We hope. Basically, the guys behind Gravit, a fantastic web-based image and vector editor, went and built a demo version of a Canva-like web app that they called ProjectX. It really is a demo. It only supports one image size (851 x 315px, the size of a Facebook cover), and really doesn’t have much in the way of features. What makes it very, very cool is the fact that it was built with around...

Snyk: the easy way to find code vulnerabilities

Security in programming is essential, and a massive headache. As the things that people build become more sophisticated and complex, their code bases get bigger and bigger. With that extreme growth comes an increasing number of potential weak points in any project’s security. Factor in dependencies (bits of code handled by third-party programmers which they have shared out of the kindness of their hearts), and you’re looking at more code then you could ever practically revisit. In this case,...

Getting started with Facebook’s Create React App

React was always a bit hard for the average developer to easily get started with. Facebook’s open-source library was meant to encourage developers to efficiently create apps as well as their interfaces within JavaScript. Unfortunately, developers also had to learn a lot of other tools besides JavaScript just to set up their React projects. Yes, Facebook has mentioned its own tooling for React. However, the simple truth is that the majority of developers and small startups just don’t have the...

Opera releases VPNs for desktop and mobile

It’s been quite a year of milestones for Opera. In March, Opera made headlines when it let users block ads natively. Now, Opera is making another huge impact by offering a free VPN (virtual private network) that’s integrated into the browser. In a recent blog post, the company announced that Opera is the first big browser to incorporate an unlimited and free VPN. This means that users won’t have to shell out extra money for VPN subscriptions or download any VPN extensions. The company’s rationale...

Shutterstock builds machine learning into its search

There’s good news for everyone who uses stock photos, today: finding the right one just got easier. That is, if you use Shutterstock. Shutterstock is taking a page from the Google Images play-book by implementing a reverse image search. Then, they took it a step further by giving us “visually similar” search. Really, most of what you need to know is right in the names. Anyone who has dragged a photo into Google Images to find the original source knows what I’m talking about. Now, you can do the same...

StringBean: The tiny framework for big design

StringBean introduces itself with the slogan, “The 4K featherweight framework”. Now, I wasn’t exactly skeptical. Despite the prevalence of massive CSS and HTML frameworks (you know which two I mean), there are plenty of tiny frameworks about. I’ve seen and tested many, and even used one or two of them for live projects. StringBean has, however, managed to impress me with how much it’s managed to fit into a small space. As always, frameworks stay small by sticking to an incredibly basic set...

User-friendly front-end: Emmet Livestyle

Do you feel comfortable in a text editor, but not so much in the terminal? Then this might be the series for you! In User-friendly front-end articles, I’ll be outlining ways to streamline the front-end development process in ways that don’t involve terminals, compilers, or endless chains of libraries. Don’t get me wrong, those things are great. However, we’re not all full-time developers. It can take more time to figure out which libraries to use, how to make them build properly, and so on,...
