Many small design helpful sites!

I had a small serving designer helper site that was bookmarked the next day: getwaves.io. Random SVG waves! Lots of cool options! Easy to customize! Easy to copy and paste! Well played, z Creative Labs.

But then I saw a small link at the top of the page, that it’s part of something called Hike. So I checked it out, and Holy Mackerel, that’s great! There are a dozen or more “generators” within an app, each working like SVG waves.

Random scattering of vector stars.

In a way, it reminds me of Omitsori, a collection of small on-off tools.

But heck, they’re just two apps, even if they’re a combination of mini-apps in themselves. Around the same time, I became aware of tiny-helpers.dev, which is a round-up site of all kinds of these little helper sites. Hike and Otmsori is with both. Several hundred More. Only the SVG area is super:

I’m sure you’ll find all of these things as useful as I do. They don’t make us lazy, they make us effective. I know how to make patterns. I know how to draw a curve with a pen tool. I know how to convert SVG to JSX. But using a dedicated tool makes me faster and better. And sometimes I no I know how to do these things, but that doesn’t mean I can’t take advantage. Unless you make it, fake it, okay?
