Tools and Scripts and Resources, Oh My!

Font Stack Builder by Erin Lawrence

This font stack builder lets you select a font stack and will tell you, using percentages, how likely it is for the fonts to be present on users’ systems. It includes options for a number of different font category styles and summarizes how the different options size up for different operating systems (Mac, Windows, Linux). Very easy to use, and, best of all, it gives you the necessary CSS to copy and paste into your projects.

Browser Support by Paul D. Waite

This simple tool lets you type in the name of any CSS feature (including properties, selectors, at-rules, values, and more) and it will display a simple graphic-based chart that outlines browser support. The individual results’ pages even have links to test cases and the official specification for the selected feature.

CSS Hat

This looks like quite a revolutionary tool. Although it might disturb purists who prefer to code everything by hand, it certainly looks like an excellent productivity tool. In a nutshell, CSS Hat is a Photoshop plugin that converts layer styles in Photoshop to CSS3 code. The site embedsa video review and demonstration that shows the tool in action, so be sure to check that out. The plugin adds conversion support for gradients, opacity, shadows, inner/outer glow, rounded corners, and more. It’s not free, but for $19.99, if it does what they claim it does, it’s well worth it.
