Showcase of projects from independent creators. Focus here is on the word projects - not all of the sites and tools listed here are fully functional, but it's a great place to find inspiration, talented designers and devs, or even partially completed projects to collaborate on.
🛠️ Our toolkit
Different screen sizes side-by-side. When building a website it's not easy to have different windows open to simulate mobile, tablet and desktop devices, so we use the Polypane browser to see lots of different device screens at once, with the page position and hover state synced between them. Already insanely useful, and it also has a ton of other features like social previews and accessibility checking.
That's it for this week!
