Card – make your credit card form better in one line of code

Setting up payment options for the next big thing you’re just about to launch can be somewhat of a pain. Not only do you have to integrate with oftentimes curiously-looking APIs, it also has to be a pleasant experience for others to give you money. Jesse Pollak has taken a stab at the latter with […]

JSHint for Atom

The web community is buzzing these days due to the release of Atom, the new text editor by GitHub. While Atom reminds heavily of both Sublime Text and Light Table, there are notable differences – especially the packages system. On that note, Sindre Sorhus just released his JSHint for Atom package.

Top 256 most active GitHub users

Each month on the 20th, Paul Miller compiles a list of the top 256 most active GitHub users based on a summary of their pull requests, opened issues, and commits. If you’re a developer, I’m sure you know many of the names on the list.

How to get the latest master build of Ember.js

If you want to get the latest master build of Ember.js at any given time, you have the option of going completely bleeding-edge, cloning the project repository on GitHub and running bundle exec rake dist on your locale machine.

GitHub pull request with an animated GIF in it

Have you ever seen a pull request on GitHub with an animated GIF in it explaining the idea or problem? No? Well, me neither. Not until this pull request, that is.

Highlight lines of code on GitHub

Perhaps you already knew this, but I just recently stumbled across this neat trick myself. Whenever you link to a file on GitHub, you can highlight parts of the code using the #L hash in the URL. Here is an example of code hightlighting in the store.js file of Ember Data: https://github.com/emberjs/data/blob/master/packages/ember-data/lib/system/store.js#L8-12
