The best VPN solution for iOS and OS X - The Sweet Setup
If you are the type of person who frequently uses public Wi-Fi (traveling, coffee shop meetings, etc.), I recommend Cloak. If you are the type person who spends the majority of the day at home and work (and you trust your work Wi-Fi), then TunnelBear is probably a better choice because it’s 50% cheaper on the yearly plan (or 70% if you only use iOS).

Sublime Theme - Lyte
The _only_ thing I don't like about this Sublime Text 3 theme is the group headers in the sidebar, and even they're not bad. The rest is awesome, and the included tmtheme files are perfect for me.

Beam: Smart projector that fits into any light socket
See the [Kickstarter page](https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/beamlabsinc/beam-the-smart-projector-that-fits-in-any-light-so) for details. While the 100 Lumens on the 854x480 projector aren't going to make a home theater for you, the automation capabilities and potential uses make it fascinating. To me anyway. Beacause I'm a dreamer.

Risky Business — MacSparky
David Sparks is the only lawyer I've ever enjoyed working with, and I've really enjoyed it. He's taken the plunge and gone indie, with his MacSparky projects, the [Field Guides](http://macsparky.com/fieldguides/) series (including the [60 Mac Tips](http://www.60tips.com/) multimedia book we published together), and an [independent law practice](http://www.sparksesq.com/). Join me in wishing him the best of luck in the venture!

Xcode Consolation | Indie Stack
One of the best things any Mac or iOS developer can do to improve their craft is to simply watch another developer at work in Xcode. Regardless of the number of years or the diversity of projects that make up your experience with the tool, you will undoubtedly notice a neat trick here or there that changes everything about the way you work.

F-Script Anywhere With LLDB | Indie Stack
I finally decided to break the ice with lldb’s extensibility by adding a shortcut command for something I often want to do, but frequently put off because it’s too cumbersome: injecting F-Script into an arbitrary application running on my Mac. F-Script is a novel dynamic programming interface that lets you query the runtime of a Cocoa app using a custom language. It also features a handy tool for drilling down into an app’s view hierarchy and then navigating the various superviews and subviews, along with all their attributes. In some respects it’s very similar to a “web inspector,” only for native Objective-C applications on the Mac (and sadly, with far fewer features).

Transplanting Constraints | Indie Stack
One of the problems people have complained most about with respect to Auto Layout is the extent to which Xcode’s Interface Builder falls short in providing assistance specifying constraints. As many people have noticed, Apple is addressing these complaints slowly but surely. Xcode 5’s UI for adding constraints and debugging layout issues is dramatically superior to the functionality in Xcode 4.

Do you need to query large JSON structures? Do you end up coding loops to parse the JSON and identify the data that matches your query? DefiantJS offers a better way. DefiantJS extends the global JSON object with a "search" method that enables lightning-fast searches using XPath expressions. Try out the XPath Evaluator below to get the idea.

Edit Droplr Notes Online
This is great. Too often I've had to let a mistake slide in a note I pushed to Twitter, or had to create multiple notes because I didn't catch an error before sending. Droplr continues to be my file/link/note sharing service of choice. And in case you didn't know, creating a Droplr note lets you choose a type: "Code" gets highlighted, "Markdown" gets rendered, and "Plain text" gets left alone.

bash tip colors and formatting
The ANSI/VT100 terminals and terminal emulators are not just able to display black and white text ; they can display colors and formatted texts thanks to escape sequences. Those sequences are composed of the Escape character (often represented by ”^[” or ”<Esc>”) followed by some other characters: ”<Esc>[FormatCodem”.

How Broken is Discovery on the App Store? This Broken.
Much has been made over the years about how the App Store [could be improved](ªªhttp://furbo.org/2009/07/10/year-two/) forºº both developers and customers. Areas like [interactive reviews](http://www.fastcolabs.com/3037828/4-ways-developers-say-apple-can-improve-the-mac-app-store),[trial periods](http://www.cultofmac.com/151955/apple-hints-at-free-trials-in-the-app-store-with-new-itunes-terms-and-conditions/), an [App Store VP](ªªhttp://www.imore.com/editors-desk-vp-app-store) and [paidºº upgrades](ªªhttp://www.macworld.com/article/2048194/opinion-apple-needs-a-handle-on-app-store-paid-upgrade-problem.html) areºº all important. One of the key areas many agree is the biggest problem Apple has yet to [correctly address](ªªhttp://toucharcade.com/2014/06/02/new-ios-8-app-store-features/) isºº discovery. For small developers like myself, a potential customer’s ability to find your app on the App Store is critical. If customers can’t easily discover and download your software, your app (and indeed your business) has little chance of survival.
