Links of interest from April 20, 2012 through April 24, 2012:

Putting the roar in file management – the new ForkLift 2.5
The Path Finder 6 release piqued my interest, but Forklift has added a lot of cool new stuff, too. TotalFinder may still be my top choice, but if you’re looking for something more powerful, check this out.
Searching nvALT with LaunchBar
In case you’re not familiar with the url syntax added by Zachary and also found in nvALT (as nvalt://), it can be used for integration with LaunchBar, Quicksilver and Alfred. MacSparky gets the ball rolling here.
Beckism.com: Learning to code
I get this question a lot, and I never know what to say. From now on, I’m sending people here when they ask me how to get started with programming.
Trunk Notes for Mac
I’m a little late seeing this, but it’s exciting. I’m ecstatic about the VoodooPad 5 release, but desktop wikis for Mac is an under-populated arena and I absolutely love the iOS version of Trunk Notes. (via @tombarys)
Visualizing iOS Text Editors
Kieran Healy takes iTextEditors to a new level with some R visualization.
