Links of interest from July 25, 2012 through July 27, 2012:
- Launch Center Pro: An Adoption Strategy For Those Having Trouble Adopting It
- Great post from Brett Kelly on Launch Center Pro. I’m in the same boat, but it’s catching on for me. I moved all of the apps I put into it to my last page so that I would be forced to start changing my muscle memory. Glad to say it’s working, we’ll see if it becomes as indispensible as it initially seemed it would.
- Wanna see something cool? Spend the $3 on WriteUp (a Markdown text editor I reviewed way back when) and check out the keyboard swipe gestures for moving the cursor and selecting text. It’s ridiculously awesome.
- If you’ve been waiting on me to learn enough Python to make something grand out of the MarkdownEditing package for Sublime Text 2, it could be a bit. Luckily, Muchenxuan Tong has done exactly the things I wanted to accomplish: smart lists, table formatting, header navigation… and then some I hadn’t even considered yet: Pandoc integration and section folding based on headers. It’s awesome and it works well right alongside MarkdownEditing. Get it.
- For years Growl has been one of the first apps I install on a new Mac. I didn’t think notification center would beat it down so quickly, but Hiss just added another nail to the coffin by providing a bridge between Growl-enabled apps and Notification Center with no extra hassle. The app icon doesn’t show up (yet), but it works like a charm. I’m told the Growl developers have something similar up their sleeve… which would be pretty cool.
- Small app to allow
txmturls to open Sublime Text 2 instead of TextMate. I hacked this to also handle a
sublscheme as well in the hopes that this will be added to ST2 eventually. I’ll take my chances.
