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.
A wide variety of topics this week. I wouldn’t say “scattered,” just not thematic. Ok, a little scattered…
- Late to the Mac
- Daniel Jalkut is a popular fellow in the Mac coding community, and a bit of a personal hero to me. I enjoyed his backstory, originally written for the 512 Pixels members-only newsletter.
- myNoise on the App Store
- This is a great sound generator for work or sleep. Use sliders to set tone levels and then turn on the automation to have it shift over time for random soundtracks to fit your mood. Nicely done with web, Mac, and Windows versions as well.
- Carbonize for Mac
- Carbonize, now available as a native Mac app, generates great-looking images from your code snippets, perfect for presentations.
- Debugging React Like a Champ with VSCode
- The debugger in VS Code is outstanding, and capabilities like this are what keep me going back to trying it.
- I haven’t had a chance to test this out yet, but I love the idea of it and look forward to the excuse to try it. It’s a lot like Clarify was on the Mac, allowing you to turn images into step-by-step instructions quickly and easily. I have high hopes.
