(Ab)using CSS3's :nth-child selector to invent new ones | grack
CSS3’s :nth-child and :nth-last-child selectors are powerful: not only can they replace :first-child and :last-child, but they can style more complex patterns like the first (or all but the first) three children, every fourth child, or combinations of the pattern “a*n+b”.
But did you know that you can do more interesting things with the selectors? For example, you can style the third element, but only when it’s one of five child (the virtual :nth-of-m-child selector we’ll discuss below). Or that you can style all of the children of an element with m children (another virtual selector we’ll call :family-of-m).

How to mirror your iPhone with a Lightning cable using QuickTime in OS X Yosemite — Medium
If you’re on OS X Yosemite, you can now easily create screen captures and mirror your iOS device to your computer using your Lightning USB cable and QuickTime. This is super useful for presenting live demos of your app or prototypes without having to worry about your wi-fi connection, which is often an issue with other mirroring apps. This feature also works great for recording a usability session with test users, or for documenting UI bugs.

Font‑To‑Width (FTW!) is a script by Nick Sherman and Chris Lewis that takes advantage of large type families to fit pieces of text snugly within their containers. Unlike other text-fitting tools like FitText.js, Font‑To‑Width does not scale the font-size (at least not by default). Instead, it chooses a width or weight variant according to what fits best, and then allows for letter- and word-spacing adjustments as needed.

A modular scale is a list of values that share the same relationship. These values are often used to size type and create a sense of harmony in a design. Proportions within modular scales are all around us from the spacing of the joints on our fingers to branches on trees. These natural proportions have been used since the time of the ancient Greeks in architecture and design and can be a tremendously helpful tool to leverage for web designers.
