How to (Sort of) Sync TaskPaper files with BusyCal
Craig Eley has a solution for syncing TaskPaper task lists to BusyCal. I haven’t tried it, but for those who use both apps, it looks like a good way to — at the very least — get solid one-way sync to BusyCal with a slightly rougher way of getting things synced back to TaskPaper.
Marvel - Turn Sketches Into Prototypes
Not the first to do it, but a really easy way to create clickable mockups using just your iPhone. Free app, Dropbox sync and export capabilities.
rcmdnk/sentaku
I’ve been looking for this for a while. It’s a great standalone bash script for providing a graphical selection menu on the command line, as used in my spl script.
LiveNote is open-source
The collaborative text editor LiveNote is now open source. Interested in how it works? Grab a copy on GitHub.
Velocity.js
This replacement for jQuery’s $.animate() claims to outperform jQuery and CSS3 animations. I haven’t implemented it yet, but it looks promising, especially for iOS browsers.
