I get so annoyed when I find myself using random websites 🤮 or all different apps 🤷🏻♂️ to do things like format JSON, test regex’s, encode/decode Base64, encode/decode URLs, or convert Unix time strings.
This nifty little Mac app does all the basic things any developer regularly needs natively, locally, and offline. And it’s free if you build it yourself. Or pay for the official build. Up to you.
Developing features for a large, established app, I often run get slowed down trying to throw together a new screen. You have to find the right spot in the code to update, build the whole app (not just what you changed), log in, and drill down to the right spot to try out your creation. Something’s off? Do it all over again.
Which is why I love the idea of the Playbook library, which is “a library that provides a sandbox for building UI components without having to worry about application-specific dependencies.” Yass! 🤟
