Toolbox

These are the tools I’m using, the bits of code I’m copying and the books I’m reading. I’ll do my best to keep this updated. Inspired by Sawyer Hollenshead.

Code

  • Gulp – “a toolkit that helps you automate painful or time-consuming tasks in your development workflow”.
  • Fitvids.js — Make Vimeo & YouTube videos responsive.
  • Picturefill — Responsive images
  • Adaptive Images – The simplest and cheapest way to add properly scaled images.

Apps and add-ons

  • Tweetbot (Mac or iOS) — Twitter client, for Mac and iOS
  • Atom — Code editor
  • Anvil — Easy .test URLs for local development
  • Slack — Necessary for any team communication.
  • Day One – Simple journalling. Possibly the nicest Markdown editor.
  • Sketch – If I do web mockups, it’s done in an old copy of Sketch.

Online Tools
