https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/779/clipboard-indicator/ is a clipboard manager with a nice touch: you can see the current value in the UI!
Occasionally I think I've copied something when I haven't (or vice versa), so making the state visible seems really helpful.
Rewriting, debugging, and fuzzing a new manual format in OpenBSD: http://www.openbsd.org/papers/bsdcan15-mandoc.pdf
I particularly enjoyed the root cause analysis of the fuzzing bugs found.
By contrast, I don't think code coverage services have an obvious default featureset. I personally like to see coverage trends, the ability to explore coverage, and context on tests.
I lean towards codecov at the moment, but coveralls has advantages too.
Emacs package of the day: amx.
This makes your M-x better, by prioritising recently used commands, hiding irrelevant commands, and showing shortcuts!
(Shown with the excellent counsel package here.)
I've been experimenting with multiple link colours on my notes website: https://notes.wilfred.me.uk/HomePage
I tried mediawiki-style red for nonexistent links, but it confused my test user.
I'm relatively happy with grey here, but I can't think of other sites with different colour links.
Here's a cute lint feature I haven't seen before: an estimate of how long an issue would take to fix!
(It's a really small project, so 2 hours seems pessimistic.)
I often merge simple PRs from my phone, so it's exciting to see a native GitHub app: https://github.blog/2020-03-17-github-for-mobile-is-now-available/
UI density still seems less than the web UI though.
Alternatively, built-in physical keyboards could come back into fashion. Writing on a Palm or a Nokia Communicator was much nicer.
This is my favourite genre of web design: simultaneously advocating for a style and demonstrating why you should/shouldn't use it!
I built a thing this weekend: autogenerated emoji summaries for my new blog/wiki!
In 24 years of Perl on CPAN, you can see a clear trend to spaces over tabs!
Pharo's git integration (using Iceberg) is shockingly good.
All your commits are well-structured changes, so you can toggle at class/method granularity what you want to commit. Thanks to Iceberg, these classes in your *live* image serialise to text files! https://github.com/Wilfred/mal_pharo/commit/a0f7a610941caaef6eea27c13a7af0492cd07e6d
