Broider is a fun tool for designing border decorations!

this tool is absolutely flawless at what it does, even though I immediately start wishing for more colors, variable size, etc. etc. I’m always surprised contemporary web design doesn’t use CSS border-image more… but pleased that it thereby maintains its offbeat charm.

Hey, currently I’ve been thinking about making a tool to make some web-design processes easier.

Do you have some other examples where you’d want to have something generated by giving input through a relatively simple UI?

Pixel anything is great because it feels silly to fire up a whole-ass image editor for little things. Stuff like this that you can just thwomp into CSS is fun – really similar stuff like horizontal rules, bullets for bulleted lists, etc. could be cool.

Also, maybe I’m the only one, but I really like using emoji as web UI elements (there’s a lot you don’t need FontAwesome or whatever for) so… there’s definitely a way to do cool CSS there too…

Ah, one thing I have been playing with is tinting emoji using CSS filter to make them fit in better to a color scheme. You can use sepia and then filter on top of that to colorize emoji. This is a pain to do by guessing at degrees of hue rotation. A UI around that might be fun.

Something about generating favicons? Some amount of animation / scripting around emoji favicons?

This is all just spitballing, I’m sure there are better ideas and probably reasons why particular ones of these could be problematic.

    note from kixiQu: I post a good amount of things from href.cool and marijn’s linkroll into this sub because I think they have a lot of fabulous examples. if anyone gets tired of it, DM me.
