    A program that sits on top of iTerm. It lets you switch easily between several programs in one terminal, detach them (they keep running in the background) and reattach them to a different terminal. And do a lot more.

  2. tota11y – An accessibility visualization toolkit

    Leave a Comment

    tota11y is a single JavaScript file that inserts a small button in the bottom corner of your document. (It’s on this very page.)

    The toolbar consists of several plugins that each provide their own functionality.

    Many of these plugins “annotate” elements on the page. Sometimes to show their existence, other times to point out when something’s wrong.

  4. SVG Editor

    Leave a Comment

    Cut all of the guff out of your SVG and save a few extra kb.

    When SVG’s are created inside products like Adobe Illustrator they tend to come with a lot of additional markup that isn’t related to the actual drawing. This tool lets you remove the extra content and goes further by short handing some of the code. Extreme optimisation might result in a degradation of image quality, luckily there’s an image test in there too.
