Looks like a heck of a swiss-army-knife of a tool. It’s node-based, supports CoreML image classification and sorting, and yep… it supports AppleScript. FM’s suggestions for new use cases contain fun, weird, stuff like “Read an image from the clipboard, apply a drop shadow, and write it right back to the clipboard to paste into another app.”
Crunch is a macOS tool for lossy PNG image file optimization. It combines selective bit depth, color type, and color palette reduction with zopfli DEFLATE compression algorithm encoding using embedded versions of the pngquant and zopflipng PNG optimization tools.
The example images are impressive. Obviously, you won’t want to use this on your archival or source images. I did a quick test on a few of sites at work, and was able to take some PNGs w/ transparent backgrounds down from 1.5mb to 130kb. That’s a greater than 10x reduction in size. Jimminy.
And they’re introducing what looks like the Yahoo Pipes of our dreams, Gomix.
Makes me think of WarioWare Inc.
Paste in source data. Type in the format you want. Source data is massaged to fit new format. Very simple and works great.
Dead simple hex color scheme web app. Just type in your hex codes, and it will update in real time. You can add any number of colors at once to see how they look together, too.
Having built and used probably a dozen different image slider / content carousels this one looks like it covers all of the bases and with minimal markup bullshit. Color me impressed.
… and it looks like a million bucks. This may have to be the basis for my life’s work: A modern remake of the SNES version of SimCity. (via Jesper)
Layer comps is a panel—found in the Window menu—which helps you organize different versions of a designs or different views of it in the same file. If you are a responsible digital citizen at all, you probably have some sort of system for keeping around alternate elements and various “views” of your app. Layer Comps will make this easier and more robust.
Had no idea this even existed.
A super simple, but super useful, little service that returns various HTTP status codes based the URL called. Helpful tool for testing how your app responds to every HTTP status.
Looks like a handy little tool if you’re in the website business, and it even has a pithy one-line description:
In short, it’s nslookup, if nslookup queried over 1500 servers and collated their results.
Bonus points for being open source and installable via
Awesome GPL app for making animated GIFs from sections of your screen. Hokey smokes. (via @waxpancake)
Let’s see if they can deliver.
Works in Chrome, pretty cool. A little verbose for my tastes but definitely better than the default.
Been looking for something like this for YEARS now. Hope it’s good.
