Satellizer makes token-based authentication for your AngularJS app a breeze #

Sahat Yalkabov’s Satellizer module for AngularJS is an end-to-end, token-based authentication system with built-in support for Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and email/password based authentication.

Satellizer boils the client-side implementation down to adding a module dependency and doing a little configuration, but the server side is still up to you.

Sahat provides server-side examples for popular languages, but plug-and-play server implementations would be awesome and appear to be on the TODO list.

Showcase your work with these HTML5 device mockups #

Want to show off how good your designs look on an iPhone, Nexus 7, or Microsoft Surface? Look no further than pixelsign’s html5-device-mockups

You can pick portrait or landscape, choose from two colors, and even trigger JavaScript events when the home button is clicked (for devices that have one).

See how nice The Changelog looks on a white, landscape, iPhone 5:

Can your favorite programming language score a g()(‘al’)? #

And now for something a little different. I’ll let Russell Harmon’s describe it to you:

g()('al') is a challenge whereby you need to write in as many languages as possible code which enables the code g()('al') to return the string “goal”, the code g()()('al') to return the string “gooal”, the code g()()()('al') return the string “goooal”, etc.

Solutions have been accepted for a score of languages already, but there are many more to add and the PR queue is quite active already.

I love challenges like these. They bring the programming community together and you can learn a lot about different languages by seeing how they solve the same problem.

A tool for showing the progress of cp, rm, dd, and friends #

cv — short for Coreutils Viewer — is a Linux (Mac port) tool which looks for coreutils basic commands (cp, mv, dd, tar, gzip/gunzip, cat, etc.) that are currently running on your system and displays the percentage of copied data.

This could come in handy. Here’s a shot of what it looks like in action:

#124: Tedit, JS-Git, and Jack with Tim Caswell

Adam and Jerod talk with Tim Caswell about getting started in open source, exploring new frontiers, and his latest project Tedit — a development platform that makes programming JavaScript easy and more accessible.

Collect your thoughts and notes without leaving the command line #

jrnl is a great little text-based journaling tool with a command line interface. Why plain text files? I love this tidbit from the readme:

you can put them into a Dropbox folder for instant syncing and you can be assured that your journal will still be readable in 2050, when all your fancy iPad journal applications will long be forgotten.

At first blush, the interface looks really well thought out. I don’t journal much, but jrnl just might get me started.

Proverbs from the programmer #

Fun little repo by Antonin Januska:

Programming and development often teaches one wisdom that cannot be attained elsewhere. Coding and programming, as some have said, is a way of life, not just job. When you are a coder, that is a big part of who you are at work and outside of work. So, let’s come together, and put down our wisdom for future generations to see and learn from.

My favorite of the bunch: “The best code is no code at all”
