Useful resources for frontend Developers

I’m always on the lookout for new and interesting ways to improve sites I work upon, the following are in my bag now, let me know if you have any to add:

Ideal Forms

What’s Ideal Forms:

  • Ideal Forms is a small framework to build powerful and beautiful online forms.
  • It’s very easy to use and requires minimal html syntax.
  • Absolutely everything is stylable with css, no images needed.
  • Support for IE 7+, Firefox 3+, Chrome 3+, Safari 3.1+ and Opera 11+.
  • Degrades gracefully with javascript disabled. 


Ever needed to automatically track downloads in Google Analytics and sick of adding the tags manually, well no more.

Google Analytics doesn’t track file downloads automatically. This guy needed unobtrusive and framework agnostic download tracking for Google Analytics. That’s when Entourage.js was born.

Goals for Entourage.js before a single line of code was written. Entourage.js needed to embody the following:

  1. Automatic Tracking
  2. Framework Agnostic
  3. Unobtrusive JavaScript
  4. Small Footprint
