πŸ’… Showcase


Talk about a visual feast without the fluff! This week's showcase's layout is clean, with a modern twist on the minimalist approach. The lovely blue theme is easy on the eyes, and the use of subtle gradients brings depth to a seemingly flat design. Also, love the no-nonsense sans-serif font 🀌 (Noto Sans, for the curious!).

🎁 Resource


If you love Tailwind CSS and Alpine.js and want something similar for animations, then you'll love Glaze! It's built on GSAP, so it's super powerful, and it uses a utility-first approach that makes it really easy to get cool animations up and running fast. It's excellent for adding responsive animations that work across different screen sizes, and the setup is straightforward, literally just dropping a CDN link. This will be part of my starter projects from now on!
