Favelets to ease UI Development.

I forgot to post these last week - but for you Web UI developers - favelets (a.k.a. bookmarklets) can sure make your development life a lot easier.

A bookmarklet is a simply a javascript script masquerading as a URL. The pseudo-protocol javascript: tells the browser to have javascript interpret what follows. Otherwise they can be treated just like any other url, by inserting into a link, pasting directly into the location bar, or bookmarked or added to your favourites. Like many people I have the ones I use most often added to my links bar, where they become handy extensions to the browser's functionality.

Here are some good links for some cool favelets. Most of them seem to be targeting IE on Windows/Mac - and I found that some didn't work on XP/IE6 SP1. But still, they're great for validation and showing table/div borders.

In my search of these resources, I found which appears to be a good blog on cutting edge web-ui technologies. Cool - I'll add it to my daily reads list. BTW, I've added a feature to Roller where you can make your Bookmark and Newsfeed folders collapsible/expandable in modern browsers. When I upgrade this site, it might be cool to split up my "Blogrolling" links into Java, Web UI and Good Reads - we'll see. Most of you are probably like me and are using Mozilla bookmark tabs feature to get your daily reads.
