Web Excursions for October 09, 2014

[Tweet : nvALT]

Web excursions brought to you in partnership with Udemy. Learn Anything.

LaunchBar multiple selections
I don’t know if other LaunchBar users have been as slow to pick up the new “staging” feature in LB 6 as I have, but once it becomes habit, it’s awesome.
colourcode - find your colour scheme
A cool tool for rapid color scheme creation. It can export PNG, CSS, Sass, and LESS files.
SweetAlert
If you’re a front end web developer, alert boxes and confirmation dialogs are an important tool. This is a fast, good-looking way to ditch alert() without much effort.
jQuery Adaptive Backgrounds
A jQuery plugin for extracting dominant colors from images and applying it to its parent. Pretty cool effect.
terminal.sexy - Terminal Color Scheme Designer
I love these things.
Pinswift Update for iOS 8
Great review from Gabe Weatherhead of my current favorite iOS Pinboard app.
