Web Excursions for July 03, 2019

[Tweet : nvALT]

Web Excursions are select bookmarks from my travels around the interwebs, because I'm always thinking about you while discovering other people's cool stuff. You mean that much to me. You can see all of my (public) bookmarks on Pinboard, and visit the bookmarks archive for curated lists across the last few years.

Web excursions brought to you in partnership with Codecademy, the easiest way to learn to code.

Eva Design System: Deep learning color generator
I think the most common reason I break out color wheels is to find the right success/info/warning/error colors for a web interface. This tool lets you specify a primary color and generates your green, blue, yellow, and red hues to match it.
Xprim
A free tool which enables presenters to conduct live polls during a talk. Put up a QR code to link everyone to the polls and Q&A forms, then get feedback as you go. Cool idea. For a better overview, be sure to check the docs.
swiftwebui/SwiftWebUI
A demo implementation of SwiftUI for the Web. It’s a fun toy to start playing. Requires macOS Catalina and Xcode 11, so if you weren’t already sure it was for devs…
soheilpro/catj
A CLI that displays JSON files in a flat format, quickly turning JSON data into valid JavaScript field references. It will make more sense when you check out the repo.
History Will Not Be Kind to Jony Ive
A scathing but undisputable take from Jason Koebler at Motherboard. “Ive, Apple’s Chief Design Officer, is leaving the company. He leaves a legacy that made its products hard to repair and impossible to upgrade.”
