Water.css

🌊 A drop-in collection of CSS styles to make simple websites just a little nicer

Water.css


Goals

  • Responsive
  • Themeable
  • Good browser support (works on my old kindle's browser :P)
  • Tiny size
  • Beautiful
  • No classes

Why?

I commonly make quick demo pages or websites with simple content. For these, I don't want to spend time styling them but don't like the ugliness of the default styles.

Water.css is a CSS framework that doesn't require any classes. You just include it in your <head> and forget about it, while it silently makes everything nicer.

Who?

You might want to use Water.css if you're making a simple static page or demo website that you don't want to spend time styling.

Although it originally wasn't built for more complex websites, many developers have used Water.css as a base stylesheet and creatively applied custom styles to build out an entire app. Nothing is stopping you…

Mapbox

Mapbox GL JS is a JavaScript library for interactive, customizable vector maps on the web. It takes map styles that conform to the Mapbox Style Specification, applies them to vector tiles that conform to the Mapbox Vector Tile Specification, and renders them using WebGL.

Mapbox GL JS is part of the cross-platform Mapbox GL ecosystem, which also includes compatible native SDKs for applications on Android iOS, macOS Qt, and React Native. Mapbox provides building blocks to add location features like maps, search, and navigation into any experience you create. To get started with GL JS or any of our other building blocks sign up for a Mapbox account.

In addition to GL JS, this repository contains code, issues, and test fixtures that are common to both GL JS and the native SDKs. For code and issues specific to the native SDKs…


7. Yup

Yup is a JavaScript schema builder for value parsing and validation. Define a schema, transform a value to match, validate the shape of an existing value, or both. Yup schema are extremely expressive and allow modeling complex, interdependent validations, or value transformations.

Yup

Yup is a JavaScript schema builder for value parsing and validation. Define a schema, transform a value to match, validate the shape of an existing value, or both. Yup schema are extremely expressive and allow modeling complex, interdependent validations, or value transformations.

Yup's API is heavily inspired by Joi, but leaner and built with client-side validation as its primary use-case. Yup separates the parsing and validating functions into separate steps. cast() transforms data while validate checks that the input is the correct shape. Each can be performed together (such as HTML form validation) or seperately (such as deserializing trusted data from APIs).

What?

urlcat is a tiny JavaScript library that makes building URLs very convenient and prevents common mistakes.

Features:

  • Friendly API
  • No dependencies
  • 0.8 KB minified and gzipped
  • TypeScript types provided

Why?

When I call an HTTP API, I usually need to add dynamic parameters to the URL:

const API_URL = 'https://api.example.com/';
function getUserPosts(id, blogId, limit, offset) {
  const requestUrl = `${API_URL}/users/${id}/blogs/${blogId}/posts?limit=${limit}&offset=${offset}`;
  // send HTTP request
}

As you can see, this minimal example is already rather hard to read. It is also incorrect:

  • I forgot that there was a trailing slash at the end of the API_URL constant so this resulted in a URL…
