  1. Susy: Responsive grids for Compass

    Looks like a very nice way to do CSS grids if SASS and Compass are your thing. (via Infovore)

  2. AWS Tips, Tricks, and Techniques

    Some handy tips for securing and using Amazon Web Services better. (via @simonw)

  3. Twelve-Factor WordPress App | Roots

    How to develop on and deploy WordPress in a sensible way (eg, no more FTP). Handy, on the day I started a new WordPress site at work. (via Tom Taylor)

  4. jeffknupp/sandman · GitHub

    Python thing that takes an existing database, creates a REST API for it, and provides you with a nice web admin interface. Handy. (via Infovore)

  5. How I Built Emojitracker — Medium

    Brilliant write-up of the difficulties in developing what at first glance looks like a very simple site. Also, makes me pleased Twelescreen is simpler and less popular. (via Waxy)

  6. Laravel

    I learned from Quora that CodeIgniter is pretty dead and Laravel is a well-regarded, more modern, PHP framework.

  7. PHP: The Right Way

    I was trying to get up to speed with current best PHP practices after some years away and this seems like a very good summary. (via @dracos)

  8. HuBoard

    Nice Trello-style interface for GitHub issues. Hosted, pay-for for non-open source projects. But code is also available for self-hosting.

  9. Centering in the Unknown

    For future reference, another thing about vertically centering text using CSS.

  10. Designing CSS Layouts With Flexbox Is As Easy As Pie

    I ended up using something like this to vertically centre text, falling back to using JavaScript for browsers that Modernizr suggested didn’t have flexbox.

  11. What are the best resources ( sites or books or tutorials ) for learning programming ?

    For future reference when someone asks this question, mainly for the first couple of answers.

  12. ngrok - secure introspectable tunnels to localhost

    Alternative to localtunnel, for making sites on your local machine visible to the world. (via Infovore)

  13. Babelmark 2 - Compare markdown implementations

    See how a load of different Markdown libraries generate HTML from the same input. The FAQ has a long list of examples that show differences. (via @aanand)

  14. Kapowaz: Cargo Cult CSS

    Good article on the drawbacks of OOCSS and some tips for good practice. I like the need to use descriptive selectors, rather than terse ones; these make much more sense to me coming to a CSS file written by someone else.

  15. Karma

    “Test Runner for JavaScript”. (via @yoz)

  16. Mocha

    “A feature-rich JavaScript test framework running on node.js and the browser”. (via @yoz)

  17. Native to a Web of Data (PDF)

    Tom Coates from 2006. Still good. “What can I build that will make the *whole Web* better?”

  18. Unity - Activating GameObjects

    I think they’ve added custom JS to allow tabbed language-switching between what are Prism.js-styled code blocks, which is nice. If you’ve seen similar somewhere, do let me know…

  19. Prism

    Nice-looking lightweight JavaScript syntax highlighting, which I’ll forget the name of by tomorrow.

  20. Safari on iOS 7 and HTML5: problems, changes and new APIs | Breaking the Mobile Web

    Very useful look at all the new, improved or broken things in Safari on iOS 7. (via @jamesweiner)

  21. philgyford’s Open Source Report Card

    Analyses your GitHub activity and tries to determine things about how you work and what you do. Not perfect — if I really am “one of the top 20% most active Python users” I’m concerned for Python — but interesting and nicely done. (via @pkqk)

  22. Dashing - The exceptionally handsome dashboard framework.

    Ruby thing that lets you combine and make widgets for displaying stuff in nice drag-and-droppable dashboards. Looks good. (via:tomtaylor)

  23. ai/autoprefixer · GitHub

    “Parse CSS and add vendor prefixes to rules by Can I Use.” Very clever and good but, like increasing numbers of things, also makes me go, “oh god, I wish CSS was simpler.”

  24. Sheetsee.js

    “A JavaScript library, or box of goodies, if you will, that makes it easy to use a Google Spreadsheet as the database feeding the tables, charts and maps on a website.” (via Infovore)

  25. Automate the Web - Zapier

    IFTTT alternative. More complex, more possibilities, costs money for more/faster responses, aimed a bit more at businesses than individuals. But, after a quick play, seems very nicely done.

  26. Bootstrap 2.x to 3.0 Migration Guide

    For moving Twitter Bootstrap sites to the new version. There doesn’t seem to be anything like this in the official 3.0 docs. Yet, at least.

  27. How We Build CMS-Free Websites | Development Seed

    On using Jekyll, GitHub Pages and Prose.io to make websites without a traditional CMS.

  28. kjohnston/pgbackups-archive

    Ruby app for automating offsite backups of a Heroku postgres database to Amazon S3. I was amazed that having set up the various parts the whole thing worked first time. Brilliant.

  29. Sneak peek of Macaw - The code-savvy web design tool

    Actually looks quite good. Jump to the end to see the finished page in-browser, and the HTML and CSS. (via @jamesweiner)

  30. Hugosslade/smackmyglitchupjs

    JavaScript for glitching a jpg, no fancy interface.

  31. Image glitch experiment

    Nice JavaScript web-based tool for glitching a jpg image.

  32. LPChart: JavaScript charts for Little Printer publications | Robots and Clouds

    A thing I wrote for work about a thing I made at work to help make more things.

  33. Django 1.3 vs Rails 3: A not so final showdown - (think)

    A couple of years old, but a pretty good comparison (from a limited field).

  34. Online JSON Viewer

    I keep forgetting this URL. Useful because it’s much less picky about formatting input data, so it will nicely format things like Ruby objects I’ve printed to the logs even though they’re not JSON. (@infovore has now pointed me at pp and awesome_print, thanks!)

  35. Debug and test your API, webhook and mobile back end service integrations. · Runscope

    For inspecting your requests to/from APIs etc. Also a tunnelling thing for sharing your localhost, but only on the pay-for plan.

  36. localtunnel: instantly show localhost to the rest of the world

    I keep forgetting the name of this alternative to forwardhq.com (née Showoff.io).

  37. Jessica Hische on typography

    Really nice, lengthy article on how to choose typefaces, particularly for websites. (via Waxy)

  38. The top 20 data visualisation tools | Feature | .net magazine

    A nice summary of everything from Excel to Gephi. (via Dotcode)

  39. Composer

    Dependency manager for PHP. I’m out of touch with PHP and hadn’t heard of this.

  40. CSS Architecture | Appfolio Engineering

    Lots of good thoughts on structuring CSS. (via Tom Taylor)

  41. WebPagetest - Website Performance and Optimization Test

    Very detailed graphs and stuff. (via @tomtaylor)

  42. Geocities as Style and Marketing Gimmick @divshot | One Terabyte of Kilobyte Age

    I’ve had “Geocities WordPress theme” as a “someday” project for ages. Maybe I should cross it off now. Geocities styles for Twitter Bootstrap and Tumblr.

  43. Timeline JS - Beautifully crafted timelines that are easy, and intuitive to use.

    Rather nice multimedia timelines. Open source. Twitter Bootstrap aesthetic. (via Mildly Diverting)

  44. ViziCities development diary #1: One month in | Rawkes

    This is great. Not just an interesting project — making a SimCity-like 3D view of a city’s data, on the web — but a lovely high-level (no actual code) description of learning how to solve and improve something. (via @neb)

  45. Test-Driven Django Tutorial

    Quite verbose tutorial, in a good way. Assumes very little Django knowledge, which is great/tedious depending on your own level.

  46. Flat UI Free - PSD&HTML User Interface Kit - Designmodo

    Looks interesting for quickly making things look nice. (via @paulpod)

  47. How We Built “Music Looks Awesome” & How You Can Join In - This Is My Jam

    Brilliant stuff - automatically making big, interesting, background images from a smaller album/video image.

  48. D3 | TULP interactive

    A few more d3 tutorials here.

  49. D3 Tutorials — Scott Murray — alignedleft

    Closing some handy tabs and saving things for the future. Some of these tutorials were very useful.
