Oh, yes, my pretty. I'll be using that (even if it is yet another of those design trends that will seem dated soon enough). Thanks!

That is cool.

Hey! That thing generates stripes!

Neat. And what stav said.

In fact, I'd love to see a roundup of all the Web 2.0 Foo Generator utilities currently in play—and a website designed with nothing but those utilities. Hell, a whole cadre of such designs. Maybe a competition.

oooh, foo generators. That would be very nice.

The site is pretty slick, but I can't say I've noticed many of the stripes. I guess I'm Stripe 2.0 deficient...

Heh. Look at the navigation bar of this very site, rmm!

I'm wondering where all the stripes are as well. I had no idea this was a design gap that needed filling, but the tool is quite nicely done.

What we really need is a tool to mash-up all of the 2.0 "generators" to create entire sites on the fly, which will lead to SkyNet becoming fully self-aware.

Very cool. Thanks.

Soon to come:
<point>I was using stripes before stripes were "cool".</point>

<counterpoint>I stopped using stripes when stripes became "cool".</counterpoint>

How did they manage to make it so slow?

I don't see an option generate a glossy reflection like the stripe in the page header. Cheaters.

My favorite part was the part where you could make stripes.

Ironically, you have to reload to see your changes.

Yes, they forgot the glossy reflection. So 1.0
posted by jsavimbi at 8:22 AM on March 30, 2007


They can't make it too easy, Armitage. You have to generate, like, two stripe things and glue them together. Web design is hard work.
posted by cortex at 8:22 AM on March 30, 2007


There should be some kind of user content section--so we can see who makes the best stripes.

Wow. It does exactly what is says it does.
posted by Mister_A at 8:33 AM on March 30, 2007


How can it be called Web 2.0 if there's no pointless comment section?
posted by zorro astor at 8:36 AM on March 30, 2007


@armitage, @cortex - how quickly you forget the AJAX Reflection Javascript library

and yeah. that's a lot of stripes.

Yipes, Stipe's stripes!

I guess this is better than stealing the background from someone else's site and changing the color, which is what I've always done in the past. So thanks.

Does this website make me look fat?

madamjujujive, you look like the reflection of the moon in a still lake, as ever, a beauty incomparable in blue and silver, our heart aflame remembering you.

Nice. The haters be dammed.

now i just wish how i knew to use such stripes on my site :(

my site is still html 2.0 compliant!

There must be a Web 2.1 Alpha out that I've not played with yet, because I don't recall any striped tiled backgrounds.
posted by Ynoxas at 8:57 AM on March 30, 2007


Remember when thin (1px alternating) stripes and microfonts were all the rage? Yeah, those were good days.

Maybe vertical stripes would be better.

That's horrible. Really horrible.
posted by tellurian at 9:06 AM on March 30, 2007


This is a excellent tool for those of us who are not talented enough or cannot be bothered with doing our own basic graphics. Also, it makes it very easy to have a site that professionally looks like everybody else's.

I like that The Web 2.0 makes it possible to become a great web designer by using all of these nifty little apps.

I like the sarcasm so thick you can eat it with a fork.

I just made some kickass stripes.

Irony and sarcasm aside, this is actually useful.

It needs a community to bring together people of all stripes.

How is this useful and who would design a website that uses stripes all over the place?

posted by Dillenger69 at 11:21 AM on March 30, 2007


I've seen some web sites that used two-tone narrow stripes of closely similar or complementing colors (say, a deep rusty orange and a dark cherry red) as background, and it looked pretty okay to my non-art-school-edumacated eyes.

Wait, this isn't a joke?

Hey, my computer's name does too! Is it Scottish?

Well, it tiles them quite nicely, at least. (I can never tile things properly.)

This is one of those moments when I took something as being irony, only to read the mefi comments and realize it's serious.

Wait, so are they sisters, or lovers, or what?
