Touted by some as “the Ultimate GitHub Cheat Sheet.” YMMV.
Medium: Improve the payment experience with animations.
Cute. I’d also mention ‘improve the payment experience with real security’, but ...
Skala Color, a Mac color picker by Bjango.
Webflow: Create Website Interactions With 0 Lines of Code.
This is typical of what happens with GUI web design packages. Flashing back to early Dreamweaver and GoLive. At this point, its often easier to just learn to hand code.
WebDesigner Depot: Sketch 3 has launched, is it time to switch?
Not really. I bought Sketch 2 out of curiousity; I use it for the occasional button. Much easier to use than Fireworks, but nowhere near the overall power, either. I don’t see a killer feature to push me to upgrade (or rather, ‘buy new again’; their upgrade offer is really parsimonious).
Stripe: How can I get my funds transferred faster than seven days?
Interesting. The seven day thing keeps some businesses on PayPal. Keeping an eye on this.
webdesignrepo - a compact list of helpful webdesign links.
Oh, well done. Duplicates most of my collections in Evernote; perhaps I should drop the service now (wink). Bookmark it, fellow designers and programmers.
“When you use a web app today, you usually connect to its developers’ servers. This is backwards, and leaves them in control. Sandstorm makes it easy to run web apps on your own server. Bring their apps to your data, and make sure they don’t do anything you don’t like.” Sounds wonderful. Keep an eye on these folks.
Dringend - The development environment on your iPad.
justin edmund: The Tools That Shape Us.
Yes, indeed. I’m one of those people who bridges both worlds; most employers don’t see a role for people like myself. But when ‘translation’ needs to happen, and quickly, they’ll need someone like me. Even easier now, since the right/left brain myth has been debunked and limitations have been ripped away. Which means strong apps for distinct disciplines should proliferate. Nothing should seem strange about being great at Photoshop *and* the command line, for instance. Even the most creative person enjoys doing rudimentary functions fast.
CSS-Tricks: Poll Results - Command Line Usage.
psdiff: simple psd file previews for git.
*Sigh.* When you need one, you NEED one. If nothing else, to buy time in order to craft the proper fix later.

Still crankin’ on a deadline.
Extended for late submissions. Links when I can.
Tootle along elsewhere today.
Very busy. As in VERY. Links perhaps later.
Beautifully programmed, when there’s great content to view. It would be a nice app for a small group of motivated people, or a travel company. In that form, it could be *really* useful. But for the open internet - not so much. Tap “Recent Activity” and see all the junk people are posting. Geolocations and single curse-words? “Frankie and Johnnie kissed here”? “This is a nice dog park.” Meh. I think the form-factor is an issue; I don’t think I’d allow creation from a mobile device smaller than a tablet. Guaranteed short-form low-quality stuff.
If you’ve downloaded the app, try following ‘Steffe’; one of my friends from Flickr. He has a set called “Runestones.”
[Yes, I joined. What I’ll do with it - no idea yet. Have to try *something*. The service needs quality stuff, obviously.]

Re/code: One Year Late, Facebook Rolls Out Scaled Back News Feed Redesign.
Redesign is a never-ending process, these days. FB is not a place I go to for inspiration.
New MAMP Pro out, too.
Wow. Getting fancy.
CodeKit 2 is out, and looks awesome.
Medium: It’s Time to Dump Photoshop and Embrace Sketch.
Sketch is great for web UI stuff, no question.
