Flotr2 is an open source library for HTML5 canvas charts and graphs which is a fork of the popular flotr without the dependency of Prototype JS framework and has many improvements.

The library is framework independent and has support for line, bar, candle, pie and bubble charts.

There are lots of customization options offered like the ability to define titles, subtitles, colors, labels on/off and so many others for each and every possible variable.


Flotr2 outputs are interactive, they can be set to respond to the actions of the user. And, they can be extended with plugins (there are already several ones that can add interactions, new decorations, etc.).

Charts and graphs work in all major browsers (including IE6) and they are mobile compatible.

Almost every website needs a form. Whether it is for asking visitors to contact you, an online job application or an event registration.

Also, forms need to be secure, user-friendly and the data collected must be reachable for analyzing/responding easily.

Ajax Form Pro, a professional and downloadable PHP application, which was featured before, now has a new version with more features and they are giving away 3 Developer licenses ($67/each) and offering a 20% discount to WRD readers.

Joining the giveaway is so easy, details are mentioned at the bottom of this and here is more information about the app:

Ajax Form Pro Admin Interface

The application has an administration panel for creating a form with:

  • any input types (including file uploads)
  • settings like the text to be displayed (or redirection to any URL) after submission, if the contents of the form will be e-mailed to anyone..
  • custom styling and layout
  • captcha enabled or not

and allows us to integrate it into web pages either with the generated PHP code or via an iframe.

Form can be styled either with the settings provided or using a custom CSS for advanced/complete styling.

Ajax Form Pro - Sample

It is created with usability in mind; the validator is real-time, works as-you-type, forms degrade gracefully for users without JavaScript and an option exists for displaying them inside a lighbox (so you can provide a link to anything which will display the form without leaving the page).

To sum up, Ajax Form Pro is a so useful application not only for creating secure forms but also for keeping/reaching the data collected in a single, organized interface.

A discount for WRD Readers

Ajax Form Pro is offering a 20% discount to WRD readers with the coupon code AFPWRD (which is valid for the next 2 weeks).

App Icon Template is an icon design toolkit for creating iOS application icons faster.

The kit includes a .PSD + .ATN (Adobe Photoshop Action) file where the .PSD comes with useful layers like the rounded corners, gradients and even various background textures.

App Icon Template

Smart objects are used to automate the generation of multiple sizes and, once the design is saved, the template instantly displays the same icon in multiple sizes.

The PS actions included generate every needed file, both in squared (no transparency, to be used in the app) and in rounded versions (for other design uses). The files are automatically named after the Apple HIG so they’ll be good to deliver instantly.
