Building a Cool Front End Thing Generator

Originally published on 8/13/2021
Animated Gradient Background Generator Website

On a side project that I've been working awhile back, I added an animated gradient background. It turned out pretty cool, so I was inspired to create an Animated Gradient Background Generator.

I’ve built a few of these over the years, like Design System Playground and more recently Next.js Web Scraper Playground. I decided to write a post about building cool front end thing generators and it was just published on CSS Tricks. Check it out here.
