10.5: Use Automator variables anywhere in a workflow - Mac OS X Hints
I've been finding Automator infinitely frustrating lately, but I found this little gem while looking for something else. Tested on Mavericks, still works there. I'm not sure about Yosemite.

Ostensibly it's a Chrome plugin that translates between various "humane" markup formats (Markdown, Textile, MediaWiki, etc.). It's [Pandoc](http://www.johnmacfarlane.net/pandoc/) on steroids. The cool part, though, is that it has an [API](http://marksy.arc90.com/learn) that you can incorporate into all kinds of tools (e.g. the [Sublime Text package](https://github.com/thomscode/Marksy-Convert)).

Axiomatic CSS and Lobotomized Owls · An A List Apart Article
I’m happy to concede that when some of you saw the two asterisks in * + * at the beginning of this article, you started shaking your head with vigorous disapproval. There is a precedent for that. The universal selector is indeed a powerful tool. But it can be good powerful, not just bad powerful. Before we get into that, though, I want to address the perceived performance issue.

Faster Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite Upgrades for Developers – Jim Lindley
Your Yosemite upgrade may take many hours if you’ve got anything non-Apple in your /usr folder (Homebrew, Texlive, or Mactex for example). If you got here by googling for “Yosemite install stuck” or “one minute remaining” it’s too late to speed it up… but don’t turn off your computer, let it finish.

While Runscope solves many API problems (particularly debugging, testing and monitoring) for app developers, there are many things we don't do. My goal with this post is to list out all the API tools that I know of and frequently recommend to people. Some even compete with us, but the more the merrier.
