This is one of the smartest colour scheme generators we’ve seen. If you know where you want to start with your palette just mouse over the bars and enter a hex code or drag the sliders to find your starting colours. If you have no idea what kinds of colours you want, just hit space for a random scheme. When you see a colour you like press the padlock button to lock it and then continue hitting space to generate a scheme around it. You can lock as many colours as you like until the perfect scheme has materialised.





Disappointed with HTML5 <datalist> due to inconsistency across browsers and a lack of customisability, Lea Verou wrote her own autocomplete widget.

At the time of release it was just under 1.5KB minified, has zero dependencies and works with IE10+, Chrome, Firefox, Safari 5+, Mobile Safari and ‘sorta’ IE9.





Surge is a free content delivery network aimed at front-end developers that’s designed to work with tools like Grunt, Gulp, Browserify and npm. You can deploy using your build tool; there’s no need to use Surge directly, and it has a bunch of handy features such as fallback 404 pages, clean URLs, and nice handling of trailing slashes. The people behind Surge reckon front-end devs will prefer it to Github Pages and Amazon S3 because it’s been designed especially for them and with modern tools and workflows in mind. It looks nifty to us.
