My Bathroom Mirror Is Smarter Than Yours – Medium
This is by far the best bathroom augmentation I’ve seen since installing my (inexpensive and quite wonderful) dual rainfall shower head.
Placemat
I’m a fan of creative placeholder images when mocking up websites in the browser. This service offers a bit of control over content, overlay text (plus font and color), size, and even image effects.
A Beginner’s Guide to Kerning Like a Designer – Design School
For designers, a great guide to kerning basics.
ELLIOTTCABLE/pin-cushion
A CLI interface for the Pinboard API. I built something similar but never published it. It was mostly for the purpose of easily renaming and merging tags from the command line. My old friend Elliott Cable made a more polished one with broader usage.
bilgi-webteam/kommit
An easy system for building Git commits as you work and then running a commit without having to edit the commit notes. I’m also intrigued by the idea behind Commit Comments. (Via OneThingWell)
