21 cool webmaster resources

Over the past few days and weeks i’ve built up a huge army of cool webmaster related links. Here’s 21 of my favourite…

1. Kuler –

Kuler is without doubt one of the best palette / colour tools you can have… i’ve yet to really use it, but you can see for yourself the colours all compliment each other.

2. Stripe Generator –

This is an awesome application for creating those backgrounds… not only can you create them, but you can steal other people’s too 🙂

3. ColourLovers –

Another colour scheme generator or palette blender (whatever you call them)… also includes some patterns and a mini social network.

4. Color Hunter –

With this site, you can enter a colour, or image and it pulls all the colours from that image and gives you related colours which will compliment it. Pretty handy for those colour schemes.

5. Color Generator –

Another simple colour generator which is perhaps more web friendly than the rest.

6. Free Icons Web –

HUGE collection of QUALITY icons – not the usual tripe you see on 99% of icon related websites.

7. Iconspedia –

Another icon site – again top quality only icons and nicely categorized to make finding the right icon that bit easier.

8. Favicon Maker –

Loads of these sites about, this is just one i had bookmarked. Helps you create a favicon from an image.

9. CG Textures –

Every texture you could possibly want, very handy for creating backgrounds or spicing up images.

10. Open Source CMS –

A full collection of all the latest and greatest open source software for web development.

11. Type tester –

Your one stop shop for comparing and creating font types in CSS.

12. htaccess cheat sheet –

Very handy for editing and creating custom .htaccess files. Everything you need.

13. CSS Lists –

Everything you’ll ever need to create CSS lists – excellent site with loads of tutorials and examples.

14. Ajax Daddy –

A collection of AJAX based scripts – beautiful site with some really beautiful scripts – i can’t wait to get stuck in to some of them 😉

15. Dynamic Drive –

Another great CSS resource site

16. Free AJAX scripts –

Directory of free AJAX scripts

17. Best AJAX Scripts –

Another AJAX script resource.

18. Specky Boy –

Just check out the site yourself – some great lists on various webmaster topics.

19. AJAX rain –

Some more AJAX scripts and tools to get stuck in to (is it obvious i’m a fan of AJAX?!).

20. Free Stock Images –

My favourite stock images service… literally hundreds of thousands of free images.

21. Web 2.0 Badges –

Some cool web 2.0 badges and you can even download the original .psd’s.
