Piccalilli Newsletter - Issue #53

Howdy 👋

We’ve got a nice mixed-bag of lush websites, cool-as-heck demos and even a VS Code theme today. Let’s dive in 🏊‍♂️

Soot Theme permalink

A black and grey theme on a very bright pink background

I’ve really wanted a monochrome theme for coding for a long time because I spend the vast majority of time in IA Writer—especially now as I’m producing more education content. I find monochrome stuff much less intensive on my eyes when I stare at it for a long time. I couldn’t find a theme that I liked, so I made one!

Take Me On permalink

⚠️ Motion Warning ⚠️

A very sketchy-style UI with the main part being my face, half normal and half sketch

Adam here yet again with a demo that makes your jaw hit the floor. This one—along with being expertly created—is super fun, too.

Download animation permalink

A little box with a parachute on its way down, showing 80% complete

This is so excellently done by Aaron. It’s a very charming demo indeed!

localghost permalink

A a site with a full screen blue to purple gradient with pixel art styling

I’m a big fan of Sophie and an even bigger fan of their new personal site! I love the pixel art so much. The theme toggle is top-notch, too.

Glass permalink

A glass sphere

Y’all know me by now: I’m a sucker for photorealism with CSS. This is a great example of that, by Oscar.

Patrick Heng permalink

⚠️ Motion Warning ⚠️

A very bright red background with Patrick Heng in huge text, surrounded by circles

We close out with an absolute stunner of a website. There’s just so much good stuff on it, so go ahead and play to your heart’s content. The squidgyness of the whole UI is my favourite part. Nice work, Patrick!
