Google's web starter-kit
A sort of not really competitor to bootstrap, maybe ish? It's a tool for helping to get websites working and looking the "Google way". I'm a little nervous about this, but I'll no doubt have a play a bit later when I decide I don't like that everything looks a bit "bootstrappy".https://developers.google.com/web/starter-kit/
A rundown of text editors for meteorAfter reading this I'm starting to think that it might be time to switch away from brackets (probably to atom). Changing text editors is always a bit of a wrench so I might put that off a little.
Node got forkedI'd heard a fair bit about this but it wasn't until I read this post that I felt I had a better handle on it. It's going to be interesting to watch. I have to admit my favourite part of the article was learning that "npm is not an acronym".
Closure CompilerThis is an interesting tool from Google, I've had a bit of a play with it and though I love what it's doing with the whitespace and simple settings I've yet to spend the time to get the advanced working. It has highlighted some changes that I want to make already. It's definitely something I want to play with some more, it's also definitely something I'm not going to play with for a little while. It also lead me to the closure linter which I need to add to the tools that I'd like to play with.

This was a tool I played with a number of years ago it displays a lot of things that I could re-do but it works, it's also a great example of why this developer should not be used as a designer . When I created it at $job-1 we were having problems because looking at our clients websites from our own location wasn't for a variety of dull reasons (or at least reasons I can't now recall but shudder at some of the options). Also Google had just started their app engine and I wanted to play with it. I put together a quick app with it, it's still the only Python code I've ever written and it needs a lot of polishing (completely re-writing), however when I needed something like that the other day I couldn't remember the url. I'm adding it to this list so that I have that url to hand. Fell free to take a look and play, criticism is welcome, but pointless as I'm really not that fussed with picking this up again.
