Sublime Text Development Status »

Sublime Text is still in development. We haven't sold out to atom.io, Jon hasn't died, there has been no hostile takeover by TextWrangler. We dropped back down to one developer earlier this year, and because that developer is also the director of the company, speed of updates was sacrificed in exchange for business planning, applying for a new payment platform and a vacation.

I've been floating around between editors for years now since I finally gave up on TextMate 1. Sublime has been the closest so far (Chocolat was damn near perfect, but just a little too glitchy), but I've always been concerned that development would just cease one day.

I'm not sure this post has put my mind at rest.

Rebuilding broken Gameboy with a Raspberry Pi »

I had bought a Raspberry Pi a while back and really didn’t know what I wanted to do with it. At that moment, like a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup, it dawned on me – could the Raspberry Pi be used with a Gameboy?

Cool project.

I have the same issue with the Pi; I want one, but I've no idea what I'd use it for. Sadly, I don't have a broken Gameboy either.

Licon »

Licon is a simple, useful and lightness pack—icon that made with Pure CSS3 by Siamak Mokhtari at FictionTeam in Tehran, Iran. It has both SASS and LESS versions so it can easily be modified and merged into modern projects.

You'll know by now how much I like my icon sets.

GitHub for Mac Update »

We’ve just shipped a significant new update to GitHub for Mac, with simplified navigation and a renewed focus on your cloned repositories.

With this update, you’ll be able to spend less time navigating lists of respositories, and more time focusing on your repositories and your branches.

Nice update to an app I've been using more and more frequently.

Emmet Re:View »

Emmet Re:View is a small Google Chrome extension that finds responsive design breakpoints on your page and creates view for each breakpoint.

Interesting tool for checking responsive layouts at a glance.

RegExr »

Handy tool for building and testing Regular Expressions.

Headroom.js »

Fixed headers are a popular approach for keeping the primary navigation in close proximity to the user. This can reduce the effort required for a user to quickly navigate a site, but they are not without problems…

Automatically hide your site's header as you scroll down, it reappears as you start to scroll back up.

Open Iconic »

An open source icon set with 223 marks in SVG, webfont and raster formats

We all like a good icon set. This one's free.

Cakebrew »

With Homebrew you can install thousands of command-line applications that would require manual compilation, which is not always very straight-forward. Cakebrew brings this to a whole new level of simplicity. Install command-line tools from an App. Could it be easier?

Ice Cream Truck Song »

I was rather curious about how century-old, overt racism sounded and slightly amused by the farcical title. When I started the song, the music that tumbled from the speakers was that of the ever-recognizable jingle of the ice cream truck.

Crikey.

Finally, the Comic Sans alternative we've all been looking for.
