Meine pinboard.in-Links vom 02. Juni bis zum 06. Juli:

  • KeyCastr - is an open-source keystroke visualizer.
  • bookmark-archiver - saves an archived copy of all websites you star. Outputs browsable html archives of each site, a PDF, a screenshot, and a link to a copy on archive.org, all indexed in a nice html file.
  • Vimmy - is very neato Vim-ness for Safari. Finally.
  • The Tectonic Typesetting System - is a modernized, complete, self-contained TeX/LaTeX engine, powered by XeTeX and TeXLive. For those new to it, TeX is a programming language that you use to create typeset documents rather than computer software. TeX is quite archaic in some ways, but it’s still the tool of choice for documents that require precision typography or ones that involve lots of mathematical equations, which makes it especially important in the sciences. Tectonic converts TeX files into PDF files.
  • Recoll - finds keywords inside documents as well as file names. Recoll will index an MS-Word document stored as an attachment to an e-mail message inside a Thunderbird folder archived in a Zip file (and more…). It will also help you search for it with a friendly and powerful interface, and let you open a copy of a PDF at the right page with two clicks. There is little that will remain hidden on your disk.
  • Alfred-Workflow - is a Python helper library for Alfred 2 and 3 workflow authors. Alfred workflows typically take user input, fetch data from the Web or elsewhere, filter them and display results to the user. Alfred-Workflow takes care of a lot of the details for you, allowing you to concentrate your efforts on your workflow’s functionality.
  • Apparix - allows fast command-line file system navigation by bookmarking directories and jumping to a bookmark directly, supported by tab completion.
  • Headspace - is the cool new 3D mind-mapping and outlining tool from Flat Black Films. It runs on iOS, including iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. You use it to construct hierarchical lists in a 3-D space and link between them.  Use it to get perspective on your ideas, game information, random thoughts, etc.  It’s like computer UI from the future, man.
  • hget - is a CLI and an API to convert HTML into plain text. Can be used to fetch a site’s HTML version and convert it into plain text, or to deliver plain text versions of your site dynamically.
  • ttygif - converts a ttyrec file into gif files.
