Published about 2 months ago • 2 min read

Hey Webflow developers,

Thanks for tuning into this issue of FlowLetter, where I share the best tutorials, apps, and news from the world of Webflow. Here's what I've got for you this week.

Resources of the week

How AI supercharged my Webflow development

Resources

What AI tools do you use in your Webflow development? Here are my 8 favorite Webflow AI tools that help me develop daily.

Discover the NEW Webflow CSS Custom Property feature

Learn Something New

Webflow unlocked the ability to edit any CSS property without using custom code. Alessia Sannazzaro shows you how to add pretty much any CSS style in Webflow.

Webflow CMS plotter

Free Clonable

This awesome clonable lets you add highlights to your image with a description linked to your CMS collection. This is great for giving visitors more details about your products.

All the Webflow shortcuts you'll need

This is a list of all Webflow shortcuts. Learn a few and add them to your design workflow. You'll thank me later.

Webflow news

Webflow has announced a new look for the Style Layout Panel. Here's what they write:

Our goal is to streamline design workflows, simplify decision-making, and improve the overall experience for both new and seasoned Webflow users.

What this means in practice:

  • The Display panel will now show text options instead of icons (Block, Flex, Grid, None)
  • Flex now has an align box that is very familiar to anyone who's used Auto Layout in Figma, using arrows for direction.
  • A slider to set the Gap attribute in Flex.

Overall, I think these are some neat improvements. I use Auto Layouts in Figma a lot, and this makes the two tools feel very familiar. I also like the slider for setting the gap in flex. Personally, I think sliders should be more frequent in the style panel, as they make input faster.

What do you think? Got a hot take on this? Feel free to reply.

Personal update

I had a blast writing my article on AI and Webflow. I'll be doing more of this. It's very rewarding to see an increase in traffic on my website, thanks to the content I write. I'm planning to record a few videos, just talking about the topics covered in my articles. I'm curious to see if that will affect my Google rankings. So stay tuned to see me embarrass myself in front of a camera 😄.
