When I first started learning development, I regularly bookmarked and kept notes on sites that I used, tutorials I liked, git repos that I found useful, etc...

As of today, I have condensed this down into the highest quality resources that I've used and found and put them into one curated list.

I'll be updating this list regularly with things I've found, and I'll make edit notes when major items are added. If I add more than a few items, I'll probably put it into a second list of this series.

So, without any further explanation, here it is - 2 years of curated web development links that I regularly used and referenced in my past two years of learning development.

The List

Fonts

http://www.google.com/fonts
http://www.fontsquirrel.com
http://comicneue.com/
http://app.prototypo.io/ - font creator app, pretty cool

Icons

Vectors and Stock Photos

CSS

SVG's

Buttons

UI Kits

React Tools

Visual Design Frameworks

These are the only two frameworks I'd ever recommend outside of Bootstrap.

Code Snippets / Codepens

Angular Directives

Angular Tips / Tricks

Desktop Apps in JS

Color palette and backgrounds

Deployment

Sublime Text Plugins / Mods / Themes

CSS Frameworks / Sheets

  • Normalize.css (I like Normalize more than a hard reset for CSS.)
  • reset.css (I don't use this very often, see above)
  • skeleton.css - responsive, ultra-lightweight CSS library - super kickass for small projects, not very powerful for more advanced stuff, though.
  • jeet - CSS grid only, useful for minimal projects or portfolio pages
  • pills
