It is so good to see new and quality frameworks are being introduced regularly by the web design/development community.

Pure is a fresh one that is created by Yahoo!. It uses Normalize.CSS and doesn’t use any JavaScript but only HTML-CSS.

Pure by Yahoo!

The framework is built with responsive layouts in mind and has styles for typography, grids, forms, buttons, tables and navigation.

Markup used is very simple and the whole framework is pretty lightweight (5.7KB minified and gzipped).

Also, it is modular and styles for each module can be used separately.

When working on any mapping-related projects (like Google Maps integration), icons built specifically for them can be very handy.

Maki is a free set of “point of interest” icons that is perfect for web-based mapping interfaces.

The set includes 73 icons, comes in 3 sizes and both in PNG + SVG.

Besides standard markers, there are items for airport, bus station, police, restaurant, grocery and more.

  • It is pretty hard to find a simple-yet-functional and good looking datepicker script.

    The most popular one is probably the jQuery UI's picker but it is heavy in size for any project that actually does only need a datepicker.

    Pikaday - JavaScript Datepicker

    Pikaday is a standalone JavaScript datapicker which is small in size (<5kb) and can work well with Moment.js if advanced formatting is needed.

    The design of the picker can be easily customized with CSS (the default style already looks good) and offers "quick year switching".

    Infinite-Social-Wall is an open source PHP-MySQL application for presenting any social activity in a Pinterest-like interface.

    The application can actually grab the content from any number of given RSS feeds but it has built-in styles and icons for social networking sites like Twitter, Reddit, Instagram, Github and more.

    It makes use the awesome Isotope plugin for the layout and can scroll infinitely by loading new items while scrolling.

    Infinite-Social-Wall uses the database for storing the parsed content from the feeds in our not to parse them each time.

    For anyone willing to create such a self-updating website, the application is a very handy resource.

    Socialite.js is a JavaScript library for having more control over social sharing buttons.

    The library is lightweight (2kb minified-gzipped), standalone and helps the social widgets to load when you want them or only when needed/requested to speed up web pages.


    It has support for the major players: Twitter, Google+, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Spotify. There is no need to install the widget codes for each library as Socialite.js does that for you.

    And, the library is extensible, any new social networks can be added with ease.
