Webdeveloper musthave – Zen Coding

This post will not be directly related to HostBill itself – but hey – its developers blog! 😉

I’ve recently stumbled upon great tool called Zen Coding – if you’re using HTML in your everyday work – this little fellow can save you a LOT of time – just requires some practice, for ex:

div#page>div.logo+ul#navigation>li*3>a

will be expanded into:

<div id="page">
        <div class="logo"></div>
        <ul id="navigation">
                <li><a href=""></a></li>
                <li><a href=""></a></li>
                <li><a href=""></a></li>                
        </ul>
</div>

Make sure to see it in action:
