🤯 Ultra List: One List to Rule Them All. March, 19

"Did you know the average developer spends one-fifth of his life reading listicles?"

Surprised? I was too, when I made up this fact just now. 😂 But I'm sure the actual figure is somewhere in the ballpark. The point is, we all love list-based articles. And since we devs basically live on the interwebs, I'm sure all of us cross paths with at least one listicle everyday. It's just unavoidable.

But of course, we can't read every listicle we see, no matter how tempting it looks. No matter how juicy the title or how inviting the contents, there just isn't enough time! Oh, there's never enough time, my friends.

Let me just stop right there before you guys start accusing me of over-romanticizing the listicle.

So why am I writing this? Well, it's simple. This is a new series my team and I are starting on in which we will be showcasing, at the end of every month, a huge list of resources that we find on the web. It's going to be a list of lists... an ULTRA LIST, if you will. 😎

All the awesome goodies that came out this month and are worth checking will be on this list. And the best part? The list doesn't have to end here. I want all of you to add in the comments the best resources you came across this month.

So prepare yourself!

Great list! A couple of interesting things that I will need to look at later.

I would like to add Fira Code font, it is an awesome font for devs that I use in all my IDE's, iTerm, SourceTree, ...

  1. Feather Icons - Beautiful open source icons
  2. Wired Dots - Free Bootstrap themes for startups
  3. Mockdown - Turn high fidelity UI images into mockups

There are so many things on this list that I've never heard before. Like Handtrack.js, it's so cool. And code time extension for vs code is going to be super useful for me. Iknu and Nordic fonts looks so cool too.

That supernova theme looks really nice 👌

I personally have been using Source Code Pro as my monospace font for the past two years, and it's pretty slick in my opinion, although I haven't tried too many other fonts. You could add it to your list if you want.

Hello! Thanks for sharing, take some links from your list to add them to a list of tools for frontend developers, you can see it here if you are interested in some links here as well.

The title should've been The Lord of the Lists - One List to rule them All ...

Fact Plug: it's been more than 20 years since the first LOTR movie released.
