in which keyboard science goes further - Technomancy

ttscoff :: COLOURlovers
Since this excursion seems to be mostly about colors, I might as well link to my COLOURlovers page, right? It's not terribly active these days (I don't do a lot of design work anymore), but COLOURlovers is my favorite place to go for palette inspiration.

NSOperation - NSHipster
The secret to making apps snappy is to offload as much unnecessary work to the background as possible, and in this respect, the modern Cocoa developer has two options: Grand Central Dispatch and NSOperation. This article will primarily focus on the latter, though it's important to note that the two are quite complementary (more on that later).

Welcome to the Click Documentation — click
Click is a Python package for creating beautiful command line interfaces in a composable way with as little code as necessary. It’s the “Command Line Interface Creation Kit”. It’s highly configurable but comes with sensible defaults out of the box.

It aims to make the process of writing command line tools quick and fun while also preventing any frustration caused by the inability to implement an intended CLI API.

localForage API Reference
localForage is a JavaScript library that improves the offline experience of your web app by using an asynchronous data store with a simple, localStorage-like API. It allows developers to store many types of data instead of just strings.

localForage includes a localStorage-backed fallback store for browsers with no IndexedDB or WebSQL support. Asynchronous storage is available in the current versions of all major browsers: Chrome, Firefox, IE, and Safari (including Safari Mobile).

localForage supports both a callback-based and Promises-based API, so you can use whichever you prefer. At the current time, these docs use the callback API.
