Web Excursions are select bookmarks from my travels around the interwebs, because I'm always thinking about you while discovering other people's cool stuff. You mean that much to me. You can see all of my (public) bookmarks on Pinboard, and visit the bookmarks archive for curated lists across the last few years.

Web excursions brought to you in partnership with Backblaze. Back up everything.

Kind of a “coder’s delight” mashup this week, save for this first one:

NodeBeat - Playful Music
A delightful, node-based music generation app for iOS. Combine generators and nodes to start building songs and rhythms visually. I’ve spent way too long getting lost in this one.
TeaCode – write code super fast
This one may get a longer writeup from me in the future, but I’m excited enough to point it out now. I love TextExpander (dearly), but specifically for coding, TeaCode offers a basic feature set that’s really useful in editors like Sublime, Code, and Xcode. You can include variables in an expansion and have them automatically filled in and transformed in the output. Works in any editor.
If your project is using semantic version numbering, version-bumper can easily increment any part of the version number and create git tags for you. No more looking up the last incremental version with git tags.
A free invoice generator for developers that turns git commits into timesheets and invoices.
browsh-org/browsh: A fully-modern text-based browser, rendering to TTY and browsers
A full-featured text-based browser. Lynx was never like this.
