NEW DEVELOPMENT RESOURCES AND TOOLS
Prototype the Design of Your Website in Seconds in Photoshop
Velositey is a Photoshop extension which allows you to prototype the design of your website in seconds in Photoshop.
Removing Unused CSS in Your Pages
In this write-up, we’ll take a look at build tasks you can use to remove unused CSS in your pages. Before we begin, I thought it would be useful to share some success stories just to demonstrate that the tools here can be used to make a difference.
Open Source Call Tracking Software – Opencall
Opencall is the world’s first open source call tracking software. The software is available under the GPL v3 license, is written in PHP and utilises MySQL as the database platform.
Call tracking is a method of monitoring inbound phone calls. It allows you to record conversations, track key statistics such as caller id, call duration, call source and streamline your sales, customer service and marketing. Self-host your call tracking solution – own your data, cut your costs and track calls in any country.
ShareDrop is HTML5 clone of Apple AirDrop service. It allows you to transfer files directly between devices, without having to upload them to any server first. It uses WebRTC for secure peer-to-peer file transfer and Firebase for presence management and WebRTC signaling.
The main difference between ShareDrop and AirDrop is that ShareDrop requires internet connection to find devices, while AirDrop doesn’t need one – it creates ad-hoc wireless network between them. On the other hand, ShareDrop allows you to send files between mobile (Android) and desktop devices. At the moment, it supports Chrome (desktop and mobile) 33+ and Opera 20+.
