– we create awesome web applications

I'm going to start a series of short digest blog posts that will cover a few things worth mentioning. I sumble upon a lot of things reading different sources, here I will share the most interesting ones. Well, at least most intersting for me.

Here we go.

Tools.

http://breach.cc/

A browser for the HTML5 era Entirely written in Javascript. Free. Modular. Hackable.

The browser is really nice especially its minimalistic design. Chrome Development Console works as usual, so it can really be an alternative for Incognito Tabs/Windows when debugging web applications that require to work on flows involving different logged in users.

https://github.com/google/ios-webkit-debug-proxy/

The ios_webkit_debug_proxy allows developers to inspect MobileSafari and UIWebViews on real and simulated iOS devices via the DevTools UI and WebKit Remote Debugging Protocol.

I'm really an Apple fun, but Google's DevTools rock.

MacDown. The open source Markdown editor for OS X.

I used MarkdownPro for a while, but this one is really cool and free.

http://iterm2.com/

iTerm2 is a replacement for Terminal and the successor to iTerm.

2.0 is released.

Security.

Detecting login state for almost any website on the internet

I'm not sure if it worths it to re-implement Location-based redirects in all the projects I participated but big guys probably have to consider this.

File encryption software that does more with less.

In short, users have only remember the passphrase, keys pair will be generated automatically based on the passphrase.

Development.

Where were a lot of buz about 2 charting libraries recently: http://fastly.github.io/epoch/ and http://www.chartjs.org/. Both are cool, I'm looking forward to testing both of them in a next project that will require charting.

Component Kitchen - Great ingredients for your web apps

Tons of useful code, all searchable.

Custom Elements - a web components gallery for modern web apps

More or less the same.

http://www.polymer-project.org/

Welcome to the future - Web Components usher in a new era of web development based on encapsulated and interoperable custom elements that extend HTML itself.

Most exciting thing for front end development ever happened since Backbone.js. I'm trying to use it in the mobile verion of http://isratracker.com which will comes out shortly.

Design.

Google Noto Fonts - Beautiful and free fonts for all languages

Beautiful indeed, looks even better then Roboto.
