Web excursions: August 25, 2012
Links of interest from August 21, 2012 through August 25, 2012:
- VoodooPad: Static Publishing
- Coming in the next release, Gus Mueller’s own static blogging engine for VoodooPad.
- Tweet Archivist - Analyze, Archive, Save and Export Twitter Searches
- This seems like it could be fun for analyzing Twitter data. I’ve played around with it a bit and found some interesting results; mostly, though it just gave me ideas for projects of my own…
- 4bit. Terminal Color Scheme Designer
- Great interactive theme designer (via One Thing Well, as is often the case[^otw]). You can convert the .Xresources files it creates to iTerm 2 presets using a script like this.
- BigVideo.js - The jQuery Plugin for Big Background Video
- Oh man, that’s pretty cool. Scary… like a potential
<blink>tag on steroids, but very cool.
Markdown bonus round
The world of Markdown editing is getting crazy, and by that I mean it’s like a 3-day long New Years Eve party where every hour is midnight[^nye]. Well, kinda. The upcoming version 3.0 of Ulysses is going to put a new spin on plain text editing and the recent betas of FoldingText are a spectacular nerdfest. I’ve linked them before, but they’re really worth checking out. I’ll gush more about FoldingText soon.
