This isn't particularly webdev related, but it definitely relates to you if you have your own business online. Basically they offer all kinds of tools and information related to conversion optimization.

They've written one of my favorite books on the subject. I'd highly recommend it. On some other personal projects, I've boosted conversions 40%+ after reading just their introductory "don't do this" checklist.

Also, they offer paid consultation. I haven't ordered that at all, but given the quality of their advice, and their track record, I'd imagine it's pretty damn good.

Have a serious look if you run your business online and have the volume of traffic to warrant the cost. At the very least, check out the book if it could apply to you.

Alpha version here: http://hackst.com/

Nicer and cleaner, same functionality, but alpha.

Alright I got it working. I actually chose to use brew install php53 instead. You need to tap a special repo though.

Might need version of PHP with readline support. Here's a really easy one:

Well that's great to know, thanks. I literally just had that tab left open to remind me to install it today, now I'll check out Boris instead.

It's very old, and crashes pretty much every time with php > 5.3.

There's boris https://github.com/d11wtq/boris which is a more recent RPL (but it needs the readline lib).

Also running console.table($('a')) ... how did I not know about these. This is so great.

Can you use tmux with the gui macvim?? tmux is still on my backburner, I never quite seem to need it enough to justify it.

I started making a sample app/page. I started off in Rails and quickly figured out how much I have not retained... I was struggling with the scaffolding syntax so I just threw everything into static pages.

It's pretty trivial but it should help for a rails context. No router, all markup is already rendered (except the dynamic table).If you start at page one it starts with one component with the most basic use case and builds up, adding nested views and dynamic rendering, and soon restful calls to refresh data w/o a page reload.

I still have to finish the dynamic table using cached json from erb for initial load and subsequent calls to a rest api. Perhaps this weekend sometime.....

Also this might help for the rails context rails too:

Just wondering what everyone's thoughts are on TypeScript as a "use ES6 today alternative". It seems you can just omit using types and reap the most of the benefits of ES6, my favorites being modules and classes.

This is perfect... i've been meaning to brush up on my linux. Just the other day when a fileserver was failing over smb (dirty raid array), I was able to ssh in, poke around at the logs and then scp the needed files.... sooo handy to know a bit of linux/unix =)

I can't wait until css3 has a wider audience.

Tutorials are any resources you learn from.

Examples: an intro to html5 screencast, a pdf about git, photoshop effects tutorials, meta-programming in ruby, lambda calculus, higher-order fixed-point combinators.

Tools are websites, apps or services used -on- your project (indirectly), to aid the process.

Examples: A color scheme generator, email marketing software, usability heat maps, css3 code generators, a downloadable png compressor.

Assets are downloadable files used -in- your projects, usually as code, textures, or images.

Examples: a jquery sticky menu, photoshop brushes, background textures, mvc frameworks, twitter bootstrap, 960 grid system.
