ProgressBar.js is yet another JS lib that makes good use of SVG:
With ProgressBar.js, it’s easy to create arbitrary shaped progress bars. This library provides a few built‑in shapes like Line, Circle and Square but you can also create your own progress bars with Illustrator or any vector graphic editor.
In case you are wondering: yes, you can even bring your Goroutines along for the ride. Give it a Go (spluh!) on the GopherJS Playground.
Pageres is an Awesome CLI (and JS API) from Sindre Sorhus & Kevin Mårtensson that captures screenshots of websites at different resolutions. Looks like a great way to make sure your site is adequately responsive. Check it.
Want to quickly analyze your website’s asset loading performance? Add PerfMap to Chrome’s bookmarks bar, load up your site, and trigger the bookmarklet to see a heat map similar to the one below:
Great idea and solid execution on a less intrusive responsive Lightbox:
Strip is a Lightbox that only partially covers the page. This makes it less intrusive and leaves room to interact with the page on larger screens while giving smaller mobile devices the classic Lightbox experience.
Check out the demos on the Strip homepage to see what the buzz is all about.
SweetAlert is an easy way to turn those boring, built-in browser
confirm() dialogs into something much shinier and user-friendly.
Check out more of what SweetAlert has to offer on the Demo Page.

Go Package Store is a web app that displays updates for the Go packages in your GOPATH replete with changelogs and update buttons.
Want to add a complete admin tool (CRUD, multi-model relationships, dashboard, complex form widgets) to your RESTful API? Check out Marmelab’s ng-admin.
Here’s a demo for the curious.
Tinycon supports Chrome 15+, Firefox 9+, Opera 11+, and falls back to just updating the title on IE 9 and Safari 5. Check it out.
A powerful command-line tool married to a slick GUI is a beautiful thing. Sindre Sorhus’ gulp-app is just that.
It’s OS X only at the moment, but expansion to other operating systems is on the road map.
Cool Ruby gem from the team at Stripe which makes it easy to run multiple copies of a single long-lived process. From their announcement post:
Einhorn makes it easy to have multiple instances of an application server listen on the same port. You can also seamlessly restart your workers without dropping any requests. Einhorn requires minimal application-level support, making it easy to use with an existing project.
I’m going to take a seriously look at Einhorn before deploying my next app.
uiGradients is a great resource for picking gradients for your next project. With 34 contributors and ~80 color combinations, you’re sure to find a gradient to suit your needs.

Centurion is a DSL for defining environment variables, Docker hosts to deploy to, volumes, and ports
I recently used Elliot Hesp’s Responsive-Dashboard to build an admin for one of my clients. Then he sent me an email telling me how awesome I am. (open source ftw!)
The dashboard is wired up to use Angular (there’s also a jQuery version here) and it’s quite easy to customize for your needs.
Check out the demo page to see what it’s capable of.
Great idea and execution from Jakub Roztočil:
CloudTunes provides a unified interface for music stored in the cloud (YouTube, Dropbox, etc.) and integrates with Last.fm, Facebook, and Musicbrainz for metadata, discovery, and social experience. It is similar to services like Spotify, except instead of local tracks and the fixed Spotify catalog, CloudTunes uses your files stored in Dropbox and music videos on YouTube.
Kitematic is a brand new GUI for managing Docker images on OS X. It’s still early days for the project, but it already has a nice coat of paint and the docs aren’t too shabby either.
It’s still in beta, but if Gooey lives up to what it says on the tin:
Turn (almost) any command line program into a full GUI application with one line
It’ll be massively popular with Python developers.
At first glance, Chartist may look like just-another-js-charting-library. But upon closer inspection, it appears to stand out from the crowd.
Notejam is a project in the spirit of TodoMVC, only for server-side frameworks. It allows you to quickly see how different web frameworks implement the same thing.
RightScale recently unveiled their new Ruby framework. They call it Praxis and it takes a unique approach to building APIs. From the announcement:
With Praxis you create an API by going through the design, review and implementation phases and iterating over them as necessary. Each phase is done independently, and possibly by disjoint sets of people. For example architects could design it, developers implement it and both can review it alongside the customers.
Intrigued? Check out their Getting Started guide to see what this process would look like.
Sander Struijk’s websync looks like nice way to manage a bunch of scheduled rsync transfers
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.
PerfBar is a tool by Khalid Lafi that puts dozens of metrics (as well as custom metric support) at the tip of your fingers with just a single script include.
