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 MindMeister, the best collaborative mind mapping software out there.
- How to make a Raspberry Pi AirPlay Receiver
- Handy tutorial for converting a Raspberry Pi into an Airplay receiver. It can’t handle Airplay 2 (yet) but this is a nice way to add your favorite speakers to your wireless setup without a now-extinct Airport Express.
- btrekkie/WrapAsYouType: Sublime Text plugin
- This little Sublime plugin takes some setup, but its functionality is really handy: automatically hard wrapping lines as you type in things like comment blocks, continuing comment markers as needed. Simple enough, but I love this one.
- dPage - Publish Web Pages on the Decentralized Internet
- If you’re interested in exploring and building a presence on Blockstack, the decentralized internet, here’s a great tool for publishing.
- Page Tools
- A handy Chrome extension for developers that lets you add your own scripts and tools to the web inspector. Need a button to automate adding a list of items to the DOM? This’ll do it.
- This is a surprisingly effective free web app (with API) for removing backgrounds from images. Does an outstanding job with hair, the bane of manual background removal.
