10++ Best Web Developers Resources and Tools from 2011 (Part 1)By Sam Deering
Is a Webkit-based Adobe AIR app that lets you preview your mobile websites, design mockups, and local HTML on a variety of phone shells. With Mobilizer all you have to do is visit any URL or drag and drop local HTML, Flash, or even image files. It can export PNGs of device views – perfect for portfolios.
2. Instant WordPress
Is a complete standalone, portable WordPress development environment for Windows. It has a built-in Apache web server, PHP, and MySQL installations that start and stop automatically and comes with dummy posts and pages for fast theme and plugin testing.
3. Google Swiffy
Converts Flash SWF files to HTML5, allowing you to reuse Flash content on devices without a Flash player (such as iPhones and iPads). The output works in all Webkit browsers such as Chrome and Mobile Safari.
4. Kendo UI
Is a large collection of micro-frameworks and micro-libraries, with most under 2kb in size. Get exactly what you need and nothing more, keeping the load light.
Is an open-source system for visualizing time series data, built on MongoDB, Node and D3. If you send Cube timestamped events (with optional structured data), you can easily build realtime visualizations of aggregate metrics for internal dashboards (for example, you might use Cube to monitor traffic to your website).
Allows you to bind arbitrary data to a Document Object Model (DOM), and then apply data-driven transformations to the document. It is not a traditional visualization framework. Rather than provide a monolithic system with all the features anyone may ever need, D3 solves only the crux of the problem: efficient manipulation of documents based on data. This gives D3 extraordinary flexibility, exposing the full capabilities of underlying technologies such as CSS3, HTML5 and SVG.
9. Ideal Forms
Is a small (1.5kb) JS lib which allows you to bind fire and assert key combination strings against elements and events. It normalizes the poor std api into something easy to use and clear.
