I’m Making Some Simple But Useful Online Tools for Developers

Hey guys! How are you? Today I’m sharing these three simple but useful (well, at least for me) online tools for developers like you.

I developed it using Bootstrap to have a decent user interface, .htaccess for clean URL location, PHP for input processing and of course, jQuery AJAX requests to prevent reloading the whole page get what you want faster. It’s really fun to built knowing that other developers might find it useful too.

For now we only have three tools, but I’m planning to make more. But first, let’s take a look!

1.0 Get Facebook ID

Why Use This Tool?

  1. Numeric Facebook IDs are needed when retrieving some data from Facebook, for example is displaying facebook photos to a website.
  2. You will kinda know your place in Facebook history. For example, we will enter the URL https://www.facebook.com/zuck on the text box below, the extracted ID will show “4” which means he is one of the earliest users or records in Facebook database.

2.0 Find Twitter ID

Why Use This Tool?

  1. You will kinda know your place in Twitter history. For example, we will enter the username “jack” on the text box below, the numeric ID will show “12” which means he is one of the earliest users or records in Twitter’s database.
  2. You can also learn the user profile’s color combination. Result will show profile background color, text color, etc.
  3. You will know exactly when the account was created.

3.0 Online Slugify

Why Use This Tool?

  1. I personally use this tool when naming images for a blog post. For instance, I have a blog post titled “The Newest Tool Site”, for SEO purposes and with the help of this tool, one of the images on the post will have a file named “the-newest-tool-site.jpg”
  2. To test what the slugged string will look like.

The tools homepage can be found in this URL http://codeofaninja.com/tools/, hope you like it!

If you see any bug or have any feature request, please chat me up on my Google plus account. You can also give other ideas on how you can use the tools above.

As I said earlier, I’m planning to make more tools that can be useful to you. What I have in mind are code generators or API data viewers.

I’m not so sure yet and this is why I’m asking you to help me, by giving your idea for the next tool you think I should be creating!

Thanks for taking the time to check out these simple online tools for developers I’m creating. See you on our next blog site update!
