Syncing files across devices

Syncing files across devices

Dropbox

Best syncing tool — reliable, secure and fast.

We’ve always been obsessed with making work better for people. Back in 2007, that meant designing a simpler way to keep files in sync. Today, it means designing a more enlightened way of working—on files, projects, and more. Most “productivity tools” drain creative energy. They constantly ping, distract, and disrupt your team’s flow. And none of them connect, so you spend your days switching between apps, tracking down feedback. It’s busywork, not the meaningful stuff. We want to change this. So we’re building a home for all your team’s work. A better way to stay in flow and bring your team’s best ideas to life. A set of tools that maximize inspiration and minimize distraction.

Estimate the gender distribution of your followers and those you follow

Estimate the gender distribution of your followers and those you follow

Proporti.onl

Many tech leaders follow mostly men, but I want to follow a diverse group of people. Twitter Analytics doesn't tell me the gender distribution of those I follow, and it doesn't try to identify gender-nonbinary people. So I built this tool for myself and put it on GitHub. It's inaccurate and it undercounts nonbinary folk, but it's better than making no effort at all. I want you to be able to do this, too. Estimate the distribution of those you follow and see if there's room to improve!

Create parametric typefaces from scratch in the browser

Create parametric typefaces from scratch in the browser

Prototypo

A custom font conveys a company’s heritage and values. It is a priceless investment lasting the brand’s lifetime. The web application Prototypo gives the ability to create custom fonts and export them to use everywhere (desktop applications, websites…). After choosing one of the four templates available (designed by the international foundry Production Type) users can design their own font by moving over 30 sliders (x-height, curves of the serifs, width…). The changes apply live to each character of the Latin alphabet. Thanks to its “Glyphs individualization” and “Manual editing” features, the app gives users a high degree of customisation. Prototypo allows them to create a fully functional font without using any other software. Based on the parametric fonts technology that uses algorithms to generate letters, Prototypo automates the repetitive tasks specific to type design.

Powerful visual website builder

Powerful visual website builder

Webflow

After spending countless hours on Wordpress, configurating the server and domain, searching plugins, fixing bugs, optimizing for different breakpoints… I finally settled for Webflow. I prefer spending a bit more so I don’t have to worry about all that anymore. It’s really well thought out, their tutorials are on point and the support also has been excellent. If you don’t need control over every element I’d go for Squarespace. It’s impressing how they communicate with their community. They have a forum, wishlist platform, blog, and Youtube channel with dozens of videos in which they explain new features in detail, answer questions from the community, recreate websites and talk with Webflow employees.

On a mission to democratize creation for the web. Webflow is a visual web design platform, CMS, and hosting provider perfect for building production websites and prototypes.
