With a growing number of web choices, it’s no wonder that web designers pay great attention to the aesthetic part of their work.

Nevertheless, a website needs more than just great looks – its success depends on cross-browser compatibility, user friendliness, high loading speed and good content. Unless you know your way with coding, the best solution would be the conversion of the Photoshop mockup by means of a PSD to HTML service. Here follows a list of top fifteen solutions for 2014.

    CSS galleries are beautiful resources for getting inspired & promoting the websites we created.

    In order to submit websites to these galleries, you need to:

    • have a list of the galleries
    • know which ones are more popular
    • browse all of them one-by-one

    MeeCSS

    MeeCSS is a free web-based application which eases this process. It is not an automated submission system which would not be ethical.

    It simply asks you to fill the information that will be required (name, e-mail, website address, etc.) & with the help of an iframe, you can submit to the galleries one-by-one by copy-pasting the fields you had filled.

    It also displays to CSS galleries sorted by pageranks & enables you to select which galleries to submit.

    P.S. it would be much easier if the selected fields were auto-selected (or better: auto-copied).

  • Controlling layouts with CSS is a big subject these days as after dropping the table support, it is clear that the current capabilities of CSS is not enough to develop complex & flexible layouts with ease.

    There is CSS Template Layout Module which offers exciting features but it is in a draft status.

    Until we get those new features, there are various solutions that are developed with jQuery to manipulate page layouts for faster & cross-browser results.

    Here is a collection of 6 jQuery plugins to manage page layouts easily:

    jQuery Masonry

    jQuery Layout Plugin

    Masonry is like the flip side of CSS floats. Floats arrange elements horizontally then vertically, Masonry arranges them vertically then horizontally. And the result is no vertical gaps between elements of varying height.

    The plugin is almost totally managed with CSS rules. It uses jQuery’s outerWidth() and innerWidth() methods to calculate the margins & paddings of elements.

    UI.Layout

    jQuery UI Layout Plugin

    This is a plugin to create desktop-like layouts. It can b used to create any UI look from simple headers or sidebars, to a complex application with toolbars, menus, help-panels, status bars, sub-forms & more.

    jLayout

    jLayout

    The library provides three layout algorithms:

    • border, which lays out components in five different regions
    • grid, which lays out components in a user defined grid
    • flex-grid which offers a grid with flexible column and row sizes.

    css-template-layout

    jQuery CSS Layout

    The plugin aims to offer a similar functionality with the CSS Template Layout Module (which is currently in a draft status).

    The script simply parses the mentioned CSS rules & displays the content accordingly.

    Columnizer

    jQuery Column Plugin

    The plugin automatically converts any content into a newspaper-like column format.

    A default clumn widt or a static number of columns can be defined & the rest is almost done by itself.

    EqualHeights

    jQuery Equal Heights

    Creating equal height boxes or content holders is mostly a challenge with CSS. The plugin makes this process easy by simply calling a function.

    Vladimir Carrer, who also created the Emastic & Malo CSS frameworks has a fresh framework named Golden Grid.

    It is a web grid system, that is totally focused on grid-based designs (not a complete CSS framework).

    Golden Grid CSS Framework

    Golden Grid uses float:left approach for building grids rather than positions.

    It is a 6/12 column grid system with a 970px main width. Total file size is <1kb when compressed.

    To read more about it, you can check his blog post announcing the framework.

    SenCSs is a CSS framework that doesn’t provide a layout system but aims to take care of the rest, like:

    • fonts & font-sizes
    • paddings
    • margins
    • colors,
    • tables & lists
    • headers, blockquotes and what more..

    SenCSs CSS Framework
    SenCSs
    has support for forms which helps presenting them nicely (better form support is on the way).

     

    There are also styles for elements like errors, warnings or success messages which are parts of a standard web application.

    SenCSs, although being fresh & currently in development, is a nice base to start with & improve depending on your needs.

    An example HTML file can be found here.

    Update 26.12.2008: This post is updated to reflect the original application.

    CSS QuickMenu is a very powerful & web based CSS menu creator application.

    CSS Menu Creator

    After selecting the menu type & clicking the "customize menu" button, you can reach the editor.

    The editor helps you to:

    • Add/remove/update menus & submenus
    • Update colors, fonts, borders..
    • Choose animations
    • Choose CSS shapes
    • Decide whether the menu will be reachable via keyboard or it will be horizontal/vertical & more..

    It also enables you to add your own CSS styles and see the results instantly.

    After creating the menu, HTML & CSS codes can be reached easilt via the "save" button.

    Stacked bar graphs are very helpful when presenting a comparison of data.

    This is a stacked bar graph built with CSS (& based on Pure CSS Data Chart).

    CSS Stacked Bar Graphs

    It uses "definition lists" in the HTML for presenting the data & "unordered lists" for the labels on axes.

    Source files can be downloaded from the author’s website & a demo can be found here.

  • deploy* is an open source web application that enables you to create your web project framework with ease.

    It lets you to choose the:

    • x(html) document type
    • css file (blank or with resets)
    • jQuery to be included or not. If yes, ask for some popular plugins
    • major directories like images, includes to be added

    Web Project Structure Builder

    Once the link that creates to project framework is bookmarked, same framework can be created with just a click.

    The idea itself is very nice: "instantly starting a project with the preferred structure". If more libraries, CSS frameworks would be supported, it can become much more flexible (as it is open source, anyone can add these).
