Placekitten: Let Kitties Take the Place of Blank Spaces in Web Designs
October 10th, 2013
Who doesn’t love kittens? I’m no professional web designer, but I’ve tried designing a site or two, and let me just say it involved a lot of hard work. One of the tiring aspects of web design is having to insert placeholders for designs, images, or code that aren’t ready yet.
So to make that aspect of design less of a pain and a bit more fun, Placekitten was born.
It’s essentially an image gallery of sorts that was created with web designers in mind. Using the site, developers, designers, and cat lovers can generate various sizes of cat and kitten images that can be used as placeholders in their designs. Just use the URL below to get started.
For example, if you want an image that’s 300×200, just type “http://placekitten.com/300/200” into your URL to get your correctly-sized kitty.
Here’s a couple of examples generated by the service:
Awwwwww. Placekitten exists thanks to Mark James.
