As a company, Fynydd has been a part of the developer community since 2010. Individually we've been involved with helping other developers with code and advice since the early 80s. Given our long history in that regard, we decided to create a proper home for tools and code that we want to share. This is that home.
In addition to the tools and code we provide here, we also established a free and public slack community where we can all interact in real-time. To join the community simply visit our contact page.
Carbide for Umbraco
Carbide is a treasure trove of useful extension methods, helpers, and tools for building awesome Umbraco CMS web applications. It includes SEO helpers, extension methods for content retrieval (like those pesky prevalues), on-demand server-side SCSS compilation, and more.
Halide for ASP.NET/MVC
Scribe for SQL Server
Inspired by tools like Red Gate SQL Toolbelt, Scribe is a C# console application for scripting SQL Server database backups and restoring them in separate steps. This tool was created primarily to help build Umbraco websites by giving us a quick way to pull a database backup and restore it offline or across the VPN-to-VPN barrier.
The SFUMATO layout framework for building visually scalable web apps uses pure SCSS to make web pages scale like a PDF. Not only is page zooming a great user experience, it streamlines development for lots of different devices. For example, your mobile view scales and looks identical on all phone widths. No need to have breakpoints for different size phones.
