Cite all the cool framework, tools, and utilities you know!

I thought it would be fun to share all sorts of cool stuff on the web for us geeks: The rules are very simple just list a FREE thing you find nice(be it a game engine or a group of icons) you don’t have to explain what it is but its always nicer to know what it’s about: I am gonna start with my own: A very nice way of picking up analytics in a customized way and directly works in most languages.
ngrok: This is an awesome way of having a server without port forwarding.
LWJGL3: Lightweight Java Game Library was used for Minecraft and is an awesome Java library for games.
Brackets: “A modern, open source text editor that understands web design.”
Javascripting: If you need tools to make a website you’ll be sure to find them here.
Bower: The apt-get install for web sites. Instantly get frameworks, libraries, assets, and utilities.
Codepen: A regularly-updated high-quality collection of absolutely incredible css3/js animations.

I’ll post more on here, I promise. In the mean time, what do you have?


No bootstrap? oh well

IE 8 and Below support for html5

<!--[if lt IE 9]> <script src=""></script> <script src=""></script> <![endif]-->

I advise against ngrok to anyone thinking of using it.

May I ask why? I don’t see any reason why not. It’s not a tool that could harm your computer as far as I know.

It’s called “tunneling”. It’s what hacker use.

Using a VPN and building a DDoS army through it is possible but if you get to the point where the hacker on your computer has access to ngrok its already too late. He could easily create his own tunneling payload and the fact that you are using ngrok to host your Minecraft server won’t make it easier for him to get inside the PC and infect it. Besides if you don’t run your server on Admin privileges no harm can be done through port 25565 ( or whatever the Minecraft port is ) AFAIK.

I made this.

MongoDB - - A different way of storing data, very useful for some cases

2 Likes, an amazing hackable editor built by the github team.
EDIT: typo


Mixpanel - similar to
CloudFlare Great CDN with a lot of other features
Sublime Text Great code editor
GitHub Collaborative code hosting with beautiful interface
WinSCP File management for remote hosts Quick and easy way to deploy my web apps. I also wrote a blog post here describing it in more detail and an example of my use case.
nginx Great webserver and is really fast

A lot of the other stuff I use has already been said, such as MongoDB Great place to discover new tools and stuff.


Github Pages - free website hosting, from Github. :smiley: I love it.
Bitbucket - It’s almost Github (no Gist or Pages), but you get free private repos. :DD
Anything over here.Doesnt show Bootstrap, but there’s a lot of info on how to use the APIs.
This. Because like, we’re all developers right?
This too. Web docs FTW :smile:


Just came across Swagger

Swagger is a simple yet powerful representation of your RESTful API.
