This morning we're making it official the HiFi Snippet Library has launched.
A great thing about working with HiFi is that you can use the web technologies you know (HTML/CSS/JS) with no restrictions. Many systems say this, we actually mean it. This means that it is extremely easy to build reusable snippets that can save you all kinds of time when building your client sites.
If none of this makes sense to you, hopefully we can answer your questions here. If you have any others, let us know in the comments.
What is a snippet?
A snippet is a combination of HTML, CSS and JS that you can drop into your sites' templates to quickly implement a feature. Since it is based in just HTML/CSS/JS, it is easy to customize or change them.
Why is this cool?
Snippets let you quickly add functionality to your sites without forcing you to use particular HTML. Design and code the sites the way you want, and then hook up the functionality with snippets.
How much do they cost?
The snippets are completely free. Most can even be used on non-HiFi sites!
Where are they coming from?
The HiFi snippets are being written both by the HiFi team as they build sites, and by customers using HiFi. If you have a snippet you would like to see, or a snippet you want to contribute to the library, get in contact.
How often will they be released?
We have committed to release at least one snippet a week, but through community contributions, the number may be even higher! Whenever we release a snippet, we will be posting it to the HiFi blog. So be sure to subscribe to the blog to get updated on the newest snippets.
Your snippets are stupid. Why don't you have an XYZ snippet?
We like your attitude. Shoot us a message and we'll make sure it gets added!
