Nicholas, Ex-Google Employee Designs a tool which helps User to Create Microsites



A Google ex-employee, Nicholas Jitkoff who was material design lead in google now shifted to dropbox as vice president of design has created a new tool called “itty.bitty” which helps the user to create their own micro site that have their own URL. It designs within an area of 8.4×11 inch page where you can write plain text, emoji, or can design ASCII characters. It is beneficial for those users who want to create their website but do not want to elapse much time in creating it. You can create your site by going on and if created then you can share the link of your microsite via any of the social networking site. You can also produce QR code if you want to share your microsite offline.

The tool was created by the combination of different coding programs like HTML5, CSS, Javascript and the content is compressed with the help of algorithm known as Lempel-Ziv-Markov chain algorithm. Developers can also experiment or examine the experience as the source code of the development is available in the market. The chain algorithm has mitigated the size for HTML and provides a printed page which is good for writing content.

Base64 encoding tool is used to convert the binary data into series of numbers and letters which is URL for the one who is creating the microsite. The URL contains in division of letters and numbers after the hashtag (#) sign to retrieve the data in the URL which helps to be distinctive for every microsite. Especially, the URL fragments are not retrieved on the server when requesting a site.

Nicholas Jitkoff has created the byte limit of the URL which totally relies on different platform where you shared. It is in a way as chrome’s maximum limit of byte is 10,000 byte and on other platform like twitter helps you to share 4000 bytes in a link. When the user opens the links then it loads to reverse the process.

This tool is beneficial for the users as it is a platform where you can create your microsite which includes ASCII characters, using different emojis, as well as text. The source code on github have been offered by developers that helps the user to create new micorsite contained within URL.
