Every day, I share on Twitter and LinkedIn a list of curated articles I read, resources and tools about UX Design, User Research, UI and mobile design, HTML, CSS, the web industry, some process, some inspiration, etc. This is an archive of everything I shared this week.
#Now – what I’m up to
Yeah, happy end of the year festivities. This is the last edition for this year. I’m on holidays and I’m playing with my paper cutting machine. I’ve create some nice colorful paper calatheas based on my actual plant. You have the whole process on my Twitter thread, the final result and a nice video. Let me know if you are interesting in more craft and illustration content!
Starting next year, I might post less links on social media and post them all here. Which means: the weekly links article will have more content than my social median. This is because I’m a little bit tired of feeding algorithms that mess up with us anyway, especially the twitter one. At least here, all links are equal.
I don’t like mechanical keyboards (well I love how they look like, but hate the noise) but, if I didn’t, I would totally go for some those cute duckeys. I wonder if I would get one just as office decoration.
If you are a teacher, of just curious about history, History maps is a very nice way to learn history, through detailed maps and timelines
Interesting little tool: Hello, a search engine optimized for developers. It is able to build some “smart” snippets and shows you the source for each part of the snippet. I gave it a try with “CSS box model”, a little bit wacky but no that bad
So, I’m back to updating my mobile UX classes again, which means I take a lot of screen recording examples. If like me you just need basic user friendly video editing (cut parts of a video, crop, stabilize), I highly recommend CapCut. If you need a trans coder, you can use Handbrake on Mac.
This is a very cool idea, especially with variables: “new proposed CSS spec, style queries, in short, they let us query the style of a container, rather than the size only. This can be helpful in cases where querying the container size isn’t enough.”, say hello to CSS Style Queries.
A great article introducing the concept of dynamic viewport: “If you want something to resize itself as the browser interface elements appear and disappear, you size with regard to the dynamic viewport.”
