Here is a fully customizable switch component I created for Bootstrap 4.
Bootstrap's dropdown menus are pretty awesome, but they lack a checked state. Think macOS or Windows:
Sometimes, dropdown menus just look better when they have tips to reference their opening element. Here's a SCSS snippet I created that gives you tips in Bootstrap 4.
Here's a bash script that will zip all folders in the current directory into separate
I recently needed to download a bunch of files from Amazon S3, but I didn't have direct access to the bucket — I only had a list of URLs.
Nearly a decade ago, I launched my first SaaS application. It was a new take on content management — a hosted CMS that reads/writes directly to a web server and uses class attributes to define content regions.
I use Spotlight more than I like to admit, usually for launching apps. Recently, some of my apps and files stopped appearing — even ones I access frequently.

Determining your app's base dir (or document root if you're from a PHP background) isn't as straight forward as you'd think in Node. Here's a little trick to get a globally available reference to your app's root directory.
For me, upgrading to MacOS Sierra broke a lot of things that use SSH, including Transmit, Sequel Pro, and a handful of other apps. In fact, it seems to break any app that uses an SSH key with a passphrase. 🤔

It wasn't long after launching a major open source PHP project until I started hearing things like this:
I recently made the decision to stop using modal dialogs in my apps. What once was a good way to obtain information or confirmation has become undesirable and taboo in the world of UX.
At just over 200 lines of code, you'll never want to deal with AJAX-based form submission any other way.
