Wednesday Links - Week 261
We’ve decided to switch publication of our links to Wednesdays from now on.
LightPaper for Mac
I came across this Markdown editor over Christmas and love it. I’ve tried Mou (which admittedly has a slightly different purpose) in the past but never really got into the habit of using it, while I’m already using LightPaper most days. One of the things I love about LightPaper is the ability of show a tree view of a folder structure (rather than being limited to opening a single file at a time).
If you tend to write in markdown and use a Mac then it’s definitely worth giving it a go. — CR
Introducing Open Salaries at Buffer: Our Transparent Formula and All Individual Salaries
This is another one from the end of last year. I absolutely love this level of transparency at Buffer. Reading this reminds of some of the ways that I’d like to be more transparent about what we do/how we work at GFR. — CR
How I Launched an Email Course to 500+ People
I was interested enough by what Brandon had to say that I’ve signed up for his course on building a Ruby gem. I’ve only had a couple of installments so far, but I think it’s quite nicely produced. — JM
Presenters to Widgets with ActiveModel::Conversion
I think this trick which means you can use
render object to render a partial corresponding to a presenter object is potentially quite useful. — JM
I’ve signed up for their weekly email - it looks like a nice way to keep up with goings-on in the open-source world. Depending on how useful I find it, I may become a member. — JM
Why pair design?
I’m not sure this article sheds much light on the matter, but it’s interesting that other people are doing such things. — JM
I think this is a neat idea. Just add markdown documents to a
docs directory in your Github repo and view them at
http://<github-username>.viewdocs.io/<repository-name>. — JM
There’s not much information to go on, but this open-source mobile phone sounds intriguing. Having said that, I’ve just found these two videos of presentations by Aral Balkan which have slightly put me off! — JM
