We'll Be Right Back

Follow along as we start over with Barley, get back to it’s roots, and make it dead simple for the average person or small business to have and edit a beautiful, responsive web site.

Happy Hour 2: Useful Things

We didn’t have a Happy Hour on Friday because I had the day off. Kyle filled in nicely by writing up the icons we use in Barley. So, today, here are a few things we’ve found around the web over the last few days that we’ve found useful. Perhaps you will too.

Visual Studio Code



Barley currently utilizes a customized version of the original Font Awesome icon font for all of its various icons. We liked the way we could use a font and not have to load sprites/images, especially multiple sizes for different resolutions (Barley launched around the time when retina computers were becoming mainstream in our circles). Font Awesome is, well, awesome. It is extremely versatile and an all-around solid resource. I’d recommend it, but you all know about it already.


Why we missed yesterday

Have you ever been working on something and completely lose track of time? This issue isn’t limited to programmers or designers or even creatives — anyone that is passionate about what they do knows how easy it can be to forget to do anything else (even eat).

Yesterday we were working on a new feature for Barley that we think will help a lot of our customers that need images for their sites but may not have any to use.
