Over the last years, we’ve seen noticeable growth in an entirely new generation of web applications. These apps have become much more complicated, leading to a huge increase in complexity of the front-end. As a result, front-end developers are becoming more and more needed.
The most important part of every front-end developer is to be up to date and stay familiar with all the new tools, trends, and workflows. Around the Internet there are lots of useful information about front-end news and trends, but sometimes it’s too hard to find and to read all of them. Therefore, we’ve collected the most useful docs and guides about the front-end world.
The resources provided below are a great way to bookmark a few things, maybe for some evening or weekend reading.
This guide provides the basic information on static web applications and offers solutions to common challenges that can appear while building these apps. The main idea of this guide is to promote an architecture that eases the development process.
A comprehensive alphabetical list of CSS Properties with data types, functions, media types, at-rules, and descriptors. It also includes links to the spec for everything listed.
5. CSS Values
The site provides an easy way to look up a CSS property and quickly view the possible values. Also it includes browser support charts for each property that is powered by caniuse.com
A very simple website that lets you choose between Responsive, Adaptive, Liquid, and Static layouts, so you can see what is the difference between the four layout types.
A useful site to help you check off various items on your projects for accessibility. It looks pretty simple, but it’s a good idea to have a final look, in addition to perform accessibility validating.
A simple sheet for learning and remembering CoffeeScript syntax.
A one-page chart of HTML and XHTML elements that indicates which specification the elements belong to.
A W3C document that describes the differences between three HTML specifications: WHATWG, W3C’s HTML5.0, and W3C’s HTML5.1.
This is a site that is collecting all the cheat sheets. The cheat sheets will link to the relevant authoritative resources (MDN, PHP.net, etc.)
It’s a simple offline API documentation browser that lets you search 130+ API docs offline. You can display Zeal from any place in your workplace using a simple keyboard shortcut.
Hope that these resources can help you to improve your front-end development skills. If you know of any useful guides or docs that should be added to that list, then you’re welcome to share them with us in the comments.
