Toolbar up

Discounting all of the masturbatory “think pieces,” I think Medium has been massively successful because of its UI/UX. The CMS and highlight-to-format toolbar are super easy to use, staying out of your way so you can focus on writing.

But, what if you want to adapt Medium’s interface to do more than format text? With the WebClip library from Randy, you can add contextual toolbars to your website or app:

WebClip’s Medium-esque toolbars enable you highlight text and input it to custom JavaScript functions. You can even use Font-Awesome icons in your toolbar.

Experiment with the WebClip demo on Randy’s site and get inspired!
