Online tools and services for Web Developers

Straight to the point blog post about online tools and services that I use either daily/weekly/monthly basis. Not all of them are about development, but helpful on Web Developer profession overall. I did not list services like Slack, Google Mail/Inbox, Trello, etc. that are known to most of the Web developers.

Online services

  • Browserling - Web Developer Tools Great collection of converters, prettifiers, minifiers, decoders, encoders, etc. No ads or registration.
  • Grammarly Free/Commercial. "Grammarly makes you a better writer by finding and correcting up to 10× more mistakes than your word processor." I use this when I write a blog post or when I compose an email answer. Grammarly has made me a better writer, but still a long way to go.

  • Handy screen sharing application that has a free edition available. We have used it together with screen sharing with and audio+video via
  • SVGOMG! It is an online user-interface for a command-line tool called SVGO, and it helps to find the correct settings by displaying the result and amount of byte savings.
  • BrowserStack. Commercial service for testing your site on real and emulator devices.
  • Creddle Service for creating online resume/CV. Import from LinkedIn, fits everything into A4, easy sharing via link and possibility to change typography and colors to match your brand.
  • Todoist. One of many to-do services, I haven't had any problems with it.
  • Evernote I enjoyed using Springpad, but never quite liked the Evernote. Haven't found any replacement, so Evernote goes to the list. Springpad was brilliant when it comes to "snipping" a web-site, for example when you found an interesting product from an online shop it would determine the price, overview, etc.
  • Zervant Billing service. Focuses on freelancers, and therefore, simple and intuitive to use.
  • DNSimple This -the- service when it comes to managing DNS, period.
  • Upwork To be able to focus on your craft, some of the unrelated things should/could be outsourced. To get inspired, read The 4-Hour Work Week: Escape the 9-5, Live Anywhere and Join the New Rich.
