Defensive BASH programming
Some pretty smart stuff in here for Bash scripters.
A simple, elegant wiki based on Git and Markdown (GFM). Responsive design, code highlighting, and you can even download the git repository for backup.
A beautiful web app for visualizing and presenting Google Analytics stats.
I’ve been looking for something like this. Adds numeric references to filenames returned by various git commands so you can easily act on them with just a number instead of a path.
Hugo - A fast and modern static website engine
An interesting static site generator that looks like it has some possibilities. On quick review it’s missing some typical blog functionality (e.g. pagination), but it seems to have a pretty good architecture for extension.
