Redactor is a JavaScript-powered (jQuery) WYSIWYG editor with a clean and good-looking interface.

It auto-converts textarea fields into an editor and the editor is capable of all the major actions (text-styling, adding image/file/video/tables/lists).

The uploading of files and images makes use of HTML5 APIs and they can be uploaded via drag 'n' drops besides selecting files.

Redactor - jQuery WYSIWYG Editor

Redactor can work inline or fullscreen, there are many settings to customize it and it is multilingual (already supports many languages).

P.S. The website of the resource is half English and half Russian but it is coded in English and demos + docs help understanding how it works.

Authenticating users with well-known providers (like Google, Twitter or Facebook accounts) is widely used and an easy-to-use model for end-users.

However, when it comes to applying the feature, you need to deal with the requirements of each provider.

Opauth is an open source PHP library that removes the inconsistencies between providers and offers a standardized method for dealing with them.


Currently, 3 providers are almost plug 'n' play: Google, Twitter + Facebook and there are more to come. Also, there is support for dealing with any other Oauth provider.

Also, it integrates well with PHP frameworks including CakePHP, Yii and others to be added soon.

Meteocons is a set of free icons that is focused on a single subject: the weather.

The set contains 40+ items covering most of the weather conditions, new items are added time-by-time and it is offered in many formats:

  • desktop and web-font

This handy icon set is completely free for both personal and commercial projects.


You'll remember Scrollorama, the popular jQuery plugin for creating chic scrolling effects.

There is now a superior version named SuperScrollorama by the same developer which offers more and complicated animations.

It makes use of the feature-rich TweenMax and the Greensock Tweening Engine (make sure you check its license before using) for accomplishing the effects.


Similar to an animation app, it allows us to add tweens and timelines to it, targeting when an element appears in the viewport or at a specific scroll point.

The website of the resource shows its flexibility and there is a short-yet-enough documentation provided.

When browsing a web page, there are usually many 3rd party scripts (analytics apps, ad networks, widgets, font services, etc.) that add a cookie to our computers and "can" track us.

With the increasing importance of "privacy" on the web, Collusion, an experimental add-on by Mozilla, aims to increase user awareness and can help us see + analyze "who is tracking us".

Mozilla Collusion

Once installed, it sits in the add-on bar and, when clicked, displays the services that are tracking you. The great part is, it creates the tracking relations for all the web pages browsed which is so good to better understand "what type of personal info is being given away".

As the add-on gets developed, it'll also enable us to decide when, how and if we want to be tracked (you'll remember that there are more extraordinary actions for that).
