We’re told that only a bad worker blames their tools. While this is certainly true – as many people have whipped up masterpieces with HTML and pure CSS as have knocked up bug-ridden calamities using power tools like React – it doesn’t mean there isn’t value in adding more utilities to your metaphorical toolbox. After all, how many of us have been saved from a DIY disaster after finding the perfect-sized screwdriver head or realising we had the right type of wall plugs squirrelled away?

Evidently then, it’s worth adding new libraries, plugins and widgets to tackle niche problems and come up with specific tailored solutions. That’s why we’re looking at great tools that can put more power into your design and development.

First off, we explore graphic JavaScript libraries and profile which ones can help you produce polished visuals, whether they be data viz, animations or interactive UI elements. We’ve also run down all of the Google design and dev tools that will help you debug and refine your work. Finally, we take a look at how you can bring sophisticated physics to WebGL, imitating soft-body mechanics.
