Raw is a free and open source web application for visualizing data flexibly and as easy as possible.

It actually defines itself as “the missing link between spreadsheet applications and vector graphics editors”.

Raw - D3 Data Visualizations

The application works by loading a dataset by copy-posting or drag ‘n’ dropping and allows us to customize the view/hierarchy.

Raw is based on the popular D3.js and supports lots of different chart types like bubble, treemap, circle packing and more.

Installing Raw is pretty straightforward as everything works client-side.

UIPlayGround has created a huge set of icons that are built with only CSS(3).

There are 200 items in the set and uses only or two <span> tags depending on the complexity.

CSS3 Icons

It is possible to find icons for arrows, charts, media controls and lots of other actions.

Once an icon is clicked, the HTML-CSS is presented with the browser compatibility chart (worth checking before use).

Odometer is a JavaScript-CSS library for creating effects/interfaces that are familiar from “car mileage displays, airport info boards or slot machines”.

The library is standalone + lightweight (3kb) and uses CSS transformations for the effect which works pretty fast (has a fallback too).

It simply transforms the value of a given element to another pre-defined value with a single-line function.

And, there are few options for customization like the theme or the duration of the effect.

There is probably noone that can say “no” to high-quality and free resources.

ZeroBundle is a pretty awesome and free pack of resources that designers can make use of in their projects.

The bundle includes a bunch of goodies, like business card templates, icon sets, Photoshop actions, shapes, fonts and Bootstrap templates.

It works by simply mentioning your e-mail and a download link is provided instantly.

Items can be used on both free or commercial projects (no attribution required).

For simple-to-complicated projects, it is always a very good idea to get organized.

And, once other people are involved, using project management apps is a must to make sure things are all under control.

BamBam!, a very nice project management app, which is free for up to 10 users, can be what you are looking for.

Signing up is very easy,  takes only a few seconds and going through the rather extensive tutorial tour will probably convince you that it is the right too.

The project + tasks can be created instantly and “e-mail to task” feature helps a lot to add new ones.

BamBam! Project

There is a totally customizable news feed that gives access to absolutely everything going on.

The real-time system and e-mail notifications are also a huge plus to keep connected with the project and teammates even when you are not on your desktop.

BamBam Permissions

It integrates fully with the Chime module for better time management for each task and with Springloops for version control with deployment tools.

The workflow options and being able to migrate projects between them is something great as a single login for project management and not having to switch between apps, websites or widgets save a lot of time.

Like said, it is totally free for up to 10 users which is pretty awesome and will cover many teams.

For larger teams, it is still priced reasonably ($7/user).

Also, there’s no limit on storage or projects and there are lots of other handy features. Simply, it is a must check.

Long shadow effects became very popular with the flat design trend and a new solution pop-ups each day to simplify creating them.

A free Photoshop extension, Long Shadows Generator, is probably the best solution for Photoshop users.

It is pretty straightforward, just apply the shadow length, opacity, angle and set the opacity. It is all ready.

Long Shadow Generator

Let’s say, you created the layout and getting prepared to export all the layers for front-end coding. This would take so much time if done manually.

For Photoshop, there are some built-in methods (like an export script). However, Breezy, a free Photoshop extension handles this process nicer.

You can select the layers to be exported and they will be ready very quickly (with the layer names, transparencies, etc.) inside a pre-defined folder.

For PHP developers, there are 2 major ways to send HTTP requests: cURL or fsockopen. And, it is hard to know which one will be available in your/customer’s hosting.

Requests is a stable PHP library that uses cURL or fsockopen (depending on the availability) and provides a consistent API.

Requests - PHP HTTP Library

It simplifies sending requests, accepts HEAD, GET, POST, PUT, DELETE or PATCH and adding headers, form data + multipart files.

The library also works with international domain names, authentication, auto-decompressing gzipped responses and much more.

To sum up, Requests is a must-bookmark for easy-to-use and hosting-friendly HTTP requests.

You may remember Freecns, a detailed icon set which was featured at WRD much earlier.

Cumulus is another free icon set by the same designer (Yannick Lung). It is a complete weather icons pack (100+) that has items for temperature or wind too.

The set is available in grey, black + colored and offered in multiple file types (PNG, PDF, EPS and SVG).
