A Web inspiration application.


This is Inpir.it, a web application for internet inspiration! Have you ever browsed the web and wanted to save all the cool websites you come across in a way you’ll remember? That’s what Inspir.it is all about - a visual medium that stores website links, names, descriptions and an associated category and color. All you have to do is fill out a form, conveniently placed on the frontpage, hit submit, and your website and color selection will dynamically appear in a grid that you can scroll through! I believe the association of color with the creation of the website item will actually help you remember it better.

The idea for this tool came out of a need: I wanted a visual way to browse through all the amazing websites I’ve found without putting them in a boring, text based, Excel spreadsheet. The application uses fetch/ajax to instantly add the content, jQuery/JS for the animations and Express/Handlebars to stand it up and glue it all together.
