Web Excursions for June 05, 2013

[Tweet : nvALT]

Web excursions brought to you by CleanMyMac 3, all the tools to speed up your Mac, in one app.

App Camp For Girls Indiegogo Fundraiser
Top billing because this is a great cause. I urge you to support it!
I’m sure I’ll love Ole Zorn even more once I get better at Python, but I’m already a huge admirer. This Xcode plugin he wrote makes opt-clicking text in Xcode open Dash instead of the built in doc browser. Add a search profile with just the docsets you want and trigger it on Xcode focus. It’s so much faster than the built-in browser that I can’t stop clicking methods just to watch it.
Pythonista 101 - The Scripting Community
Speaking of Ole, this looks like a good collection highlighting some scripts for Pythonista. Between this, the community site and Federico Viticci’s coverage over at Macstories, I should have this tool mastered in no time…
Adobe Kuler
Like colors? I’ve always been a big COLOURlovers fan, but I’ve enjoyed Kuler for a long time. The recent update is all kinds of nice. There’s also a free iPhone app that I’ll be playing with soon. Via the Zengobi blog (you can drop the ASE files Kuler exports into Curio and auto-color mindmaps).
Control iTunes AirPlay streaming with AppleScript
This could lead to some fun.
WideArea - Better Textarea
Full-screen editing from a textarea tag (JavaScript/CSS), elegantly done. I’m toying with a web-based Jekyll interface that brings back Markdown QuickTags for me, and this would fit in nicely.
