Web excursions brought to you by CleanMyMac 3, all the tools to speed up your Mac, in one app.
It’s only been four days since I last posted one of these. They’re not supposed to happen that often, but they get sent to my draft folder as soon as I rack up enough bookmarks in Pinboard. So much new stuff, I can’t stop it. The automation must move forward.
- A scripting language that compiles to Bash, but is much friendlier to code than Bash. It’s lacking a few finer details at this point, but it’s a brilliant idea that’s totally usable right now. It’s being consistenty developed, too, so I have a certain amount of hope that this will become a “thing.”
- A smart history search with fuzzy matching for Bash and Zsh. There’s a hack for overriding Ctrl-R with it, too (`bind ‘“\C-r”: “\C-a hh \C-j”’).
- Holy crap. A keyboard launcher built into Xcode.
- Hey.Press - Find relevant journalists. For free.
- I like this idea a lot. It’s a database of publicly available emails for bloggers at major outlets, searchable by keywords. It shows you 3 relevant articles for each blogger, and if you think they’re appropriate, you can add them to lists and export CSV files for a press campaign.
Hey.Press is free to use, you just have to create an account. They do an intelligent job of “letting” you pay a buck or two when you download. It’s optional—the service is promised to be free forever—but it’s a smart way to get support from users in palettable increments.
