WordCamp Europe 2015
This year WordCamp Europe will be held in Sevilla, Spain between the 26th and 28th of June. After the success of WordCamp Europe 2014, which was in Sofia, i’m sure it will be a great event and everyone’s expectations will be satisfied. The organizers will announce a call for speakers, sponsors and volunteers this month and probably tickets will be on sale soon.
I think Avocode is a tool a lot of people have been expecting for a while. It allows users to inspect Photoshop and Sketch files and turn them easily into code. Obviously this tool is dedicated to front-end developers and for sure it can make their life easier. You don’t need Photoshop, with just one click on an element in the psd file you can see its CSS and use it, or you can export that resource to any format you need. Some of the top features are:
- CSS Hat integration – Easily get CSS, Less, Sass or Stylus for any selected layer.
- Accurate dimensions
- Very advanced colorpicker, very easy to work with it and very helpful
- Copy text and font styles
- Visual interface
The authors brag that Avocode is 100% Photoshop compatible and that it’s supporting Mac, Windows and Linux. The pricing starts at $20/month for a single developer license.

- and more other features for creating and optimizing the content, monetizing or keeping everything safe.
The first plan is $8/month for 5 websites.
MotoPress Content Editor Plugin
Recently i read an article about this content editor plugin and for sure it can be a great tool and an alternative for the existing visual composer plugins. Basically it’s a drag and drop page builder. The plugin is designed to work with any WordPress theme and also its authors teamed up with Template Monster to integrate it into their Cherry Framework. The license for a single website is $29 which is almost the same with the popular Visual Composer ($28 on CodeCanyon). After taking a look i must confess that it’s a very powerful content editor, with a lot of predefined controls and a lot of options. It will probably require a little time to get familiar with it but once this step is passed you have unlimited options to create layouts.
