Web Excursions are select bookmarks from my travels around the interwebs, because I'm always thinking about you while discovering other people's cool stuff. You mean that much to me. You can see all of my (public) bookmarks on Pinboard, and visit the bookmarks archive for curated lists across the last few years.

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

App Camp For Girls Indiegogo Fundraiser
Top billing because this is a great cause. I urge you to support it!
I’m sure I’ll love Ole Zorn even more once I get better at Python, but I’m already a huge admirer. This Xcode plugin he wrote makes opt-clicking text in Xcode open Dash instead of the built in doc browser. Add a search profile with just the docsets you want and trigger it on Xcode focus. It’s so much faster than the built-in browser that I can’t stop clicking methods just to watch it.
Pythonista 101 - The Scripting Community
Speaking of Ole, this looks like a good collection highlighting some scripts for Pythonista. Between this, the community site and Federico Viticci’s coverage over at Macstories, I should have this tool mastered in no time…
Adobe Kuler
Like colors? I’ve always been a big COLOURlovers fan, but I’ve enjoyed Kuler for a long time. The recent update is all kinds of nice. There’s also a free iPhone app that I’ll be playing with soon. Via the Zengobi blog (you can drop the ASE files Kuler exports into Curio and auto-color mindmaps).
Control iTunes AirPlay streaming with AppleScript
This could lead to some fun.
WideArea - Better Textarea
Full-screen editing from a textarea tag (JavaScript/CSS), elegantly done. I’m toying with a web-based Jekyll interface that brings back Markdown QuickTags for me, and this would fit in nicely.
