At today’s PSFK CONFERENCE LONDON, Matt Webb, the CEO of the design consultancy BERG, will be announcing the release of his company’s open developer tools built for its Little Printer. The Little Printer is a device that allows smartphone users to set up subscriptions and have them delivered in timely, beautiful miniature newspapers called ‘Publications.’ After subscribing to their favorite publications, users can receive personlized newspapers delivered in a hard copy as often as they’d like.

The developer tools to be announced comprise of two main features: First, the Rapid Prototyper will allow developers to preview their design, even before they’ve performed any of the configuration that connects a publication to BERG Cloud. If a design is available on the web, a user can paste the URL into the “Submit an endpoint” field, or into the HTML and CSS fields below.

Next, the Publication Validator examines a publication to see if all the necessary endpoints are present. It checks to see if all of the required fields are filled, and also makes sure that the first edition is ready. Finally, it returns a bunch of errors for things that might be missing.
