Looking for something to create? Here are some projects that you can play with and make your own through remixing.
Often times you might get bitten by the creativity bug and have the urge to make something, but you aren’t sure of where to start. We’ve put together a list of fairly straightforward apps for you to remix. Change around a few colors or add completely new features: this is your playground. Before moving on to your next great achievement, save projects to your My Stuff for easy access later.
🕸 Useful web stuff 🕸
The holidays are coming up and instead of just inviting everyone to your holiday party on Facebook, you could send them a cool remix of our “appy-hour” app that we made for our Appy Hour party at this year’s XOXO. The site has a lot more personality than your typical event page, all you need to do is remix it and give it your own original flavor.
If you’re looking to make a free link tree for your Instagram bio or just want a place for all your random links, then “link-tree-11ty” is the perfect practical app that you can remix for immediate use. Made by Cassey Lottman.
🎊 End of the year 🎊
Given that the 2020 is just around the corner, it’s a great opportunity to spend your Hour of Code remixing something to wrap up 2019! With “music-2019” from Tiff Tseng, you can easily show off all the new albums you picked up this year. It’s as easy as changing the JSON file.
In a similar vein, “year-end-list” from Tiff was made to remember all of the books you read this year, but it could also easily be remixed to be about whatever you want — favorite movies, favorite concerts, favorite places to get croissants, etc.
✨ Sparkles ✨
Play around with some of these cute sparkles with a quick remix — try changing the color, speed and size of the particles. You can also copy them over to another project to spice it up! From Edwin Morris.
Similar to the sparkles, “snow-animation” can give any website a nice subtle holiday feel.
🕹 Games, games, games 🕹
We’ve also got “odd-care” from Anjali which is your local Mad Lib starter for all your Mad Lib needs! Just give it a remix and change the text and JSON files to make your own story. Mad Libbing has never been easier, and what a fun thing to send a friend or coworker on a bad day.
🎰 Generators 🎰
Generators are a great way to spend an hour if you want something simple to play with. Take this La Croix generator, for example, remix and add onto what Steph Monette started.
Trick your parents into thinking you got a book deal over the holidays with “book-deal-generator” from Margarita Noriega. Add some more book titles or maybe change it altogether with a movie or television deal.
Facebook released a chatbot, called Liam, over Thanksgiving weekend to equip their employees with PR style responses to their families questions. Adrienne Porter Felt made a parody of it to help you with some other family questions. Add your own questions to the bot to help you practice for your next family gathering.
Whatever you do with your creative juices, there are always apps ready for remix. To keep these apps for later, click on this collection and add to your My Stuff or personal collections.
