Awesome Web Tools of the Week - July 2019
These are some of the list of must-try web resources that will make your site a better place. Every week I compile a list of some of the best web tools that I discover through Web and Tech magazines and a few through online blogs. Enjoy your awesome productive week!
1. CSS Grid Generator
CSS Grid Generator allows you to set the numbers, and units of your columns and rows, and it automatically generates a CSS grid for you! You can Drag within the boxes to create divs placed within the grid. It is a really quick way to create a CSS grid just by entering the number of columns, rows (and any gaps), elements you want and snap, you get the code you want as a popup like shown below.

2. Color Kitty
Color Kitty is a neat little online tool helps create a 5-colour palette from any uploaded image. You can also adjust the palette by moving the selected colour points on the image.

3. CSS Transform
This is my favorite in the list. Developed by Jorge Moreno, this web tool helps users work with CSS transforms. It uses three elements to help demonstrate what is happening. Its 2D & 3D CSS Transform functions visualiser comprises of Rotate, and Perspective with sliders. You can play and experiment until you get what you have desired, and then copy & use the CSS code that is generated.
The source code is also available on GitHub.
