Web Excursions for June 13, 2014

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

Steady.js
If you’ve ever worked with throttling onScroll handlers in a web page, this looks like a clever solution. I’ve been doing ok with a jQuery debounce/throttle combination, but this allows a callback function to delay the handler until a task is finished.
AlchemyAPI
An intriguing API for text analysis, language detection, sentiment recognition and semantic keywords. Something to explore soon.
Wikify (Evernote Wiki-Helper)
An interesting Alfred workflow for “wikifying” Evernote with Markdown support.
Isso – a commenting server similar to Disqus
Recommended by a friend on Twitter, I’m seriously considering the switch. I don’t love the idea of hosting a database for the website these days, but full control of my comments would be fun.
Here, Look
Solves one of my biggest annoyances with showing people photos on my iPhone. I actually told someone I was going to create this app once. I take full credit for it. I kid because I love.
Launched
A web-based interface for creating launchd tasks. Handy for people who don’t want to run Launch Control, I would think.
