Deployment & Hosting

HTML

Icons

  • Devicons - a collection of development-related icons, such as icons for programming languages
  • Font Awesome - the web's largest collection of icons
  • Material UI Icons - a large assortment of icons based on material design
  • Octicons - a GitHub-themed icon collection

Illustrations

"Wow! That stock photo really drew me into the story of your website/app/business," said no one ever. If you want to capture your audience's attention(and apparently, you have ten seconds to do so), you'll need striking, authentic imagery and illustrations.

  • IRA Design - build your own illustrations with free pre-existing gradient images.
  • Undraw - a constantly updated collection of beautiful, free SVG images that don't require attribution.
  • Hero Patterns - a collection of repeatable SVG background patterns for you to use on your web projects.

General Development Tutorials/Curriculums

  • freeCodeCamp - a free, open-source platform for learning full-stack development. There are several 300-hour courses on subjects such as front-end development, data structures, and passing code interviews. Each course completion comes with a certificate.
  • The Odin Project - a free, open-source curriculum for learning web development. Courses on JavaScript, Ruby on Rails, HTML, and CSS. This curriculum requires you to utilize many external resources, so you'll become proficient at setting up your own coding environment and searching for valuable resources online.

JavaScript

JavaScript Boilerplate

Ever heard of JavaScript fatigue? Well it's real, folks. No one enjoys the mind-numbing process of gathering all the necessary dependencies needed to create a new app. So here are some awesome code templates that'll enable you to start your development in no time at all.

JavaScript Libraries

JavaScript Testing

JavaScript Tutorials

Vanilla JS

React JS

  • Full Stack Open 2019 - a free course run by the University of Helsinki with the main focus of building single page applications with ReactJS that use REST APIs built with Node.js.

  • React JS Crash Course - a 30,000 foot view of React from Brad Traversy; an hour-long YouTube tutorial.

  • Mastering React by Mosh - a 12-hour-long series of videos where you learn React fundamentals by building a video rental app.

  • Official React Tutorial - you will learn React by building an interactive tic-tac-toe game.

Vue JS

Vue (pronounced /vjuː/, like view) is a progressive framework for building user interfaces. Unlike other monolithic frameworks, Vue is designed from the ground up to be incrementally adoptable. The core library is focused on the view layer only, and is easy to pick up and integrate with other libraries or existing projects. On the other hand, Vue is also perfectly capable of powering sophisticated Single-Page Applications when used in combination with modern tooling and supporting libraries. (taken from the official Vue.js site)

  • Vue JS 2 - The Complete Guide - a Udemy course considered to be one of the most comprehensive Vue.js tutorials available; each concept is broken down into a bite-sized 2-3 minute video and hands-on learning.

  • Vue JS Crash Course - an hour-long YouTube tutorial by Brad Traversy; you will learn all about Vue.js including what it is, Vue-CLI, components, data, events, directives, etc.

  • Laracasts - Learn Vue 2: Step by Step - the most upvoted Vue tutorial on hackr.io.

  • Build an App with Vue.js - a free tutorial by Scotch.io where you'll learn by creating a lightweight event bulletin board.

Angular 2+

Other

  • Frontend Masters - a subscription-based platform for learning cutting-edge front-end technologies. Tutorials taught by world-class experts.

Mockup Tools

Reference

  • Dev.to - there are plenty of tech articles, and all for free! Just like Medium, it has tutorials, articles, opinions and more about all kinds of tech stuff.
  • Medium - some of the most helpful programming articles/tutorials I've come across have been on the Medium platform! Just search for your specific tool/language and you'll find a treasure trove of programming gold nuggets.
  • Scotch.io - fun and practical web development tutorials

UI & CSS Frameworks

  • Ant Design
  • Bootstrap 4
  • Bulma - Bulma is a free, open source CSS framework based on Flexbox.
  • Grommet
  • Material UI - React components for faster and easier web development.
  • Semantic UI
  • Tailwind CSS - Tailwind CSS is a highly customizable, low-level CSS framework that gives you all of the building blocks you need to build bespoke designs without any annoying opinionated styles you have to fight to override.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
