Apple has had us in for quite a few surprises, this year at WWDC. Their work in tightly integrating their iOS and Mac OS systems seem to be what the developers looked forward to. Like with Mavericks last year, we’re here to discuss our findings about Apple’s next Mac OS release – Yosemite.
Like we have done many times earlier, again, we’re not really authorised to try out the Developer Preview of Yosemite. But we figured, there is always a chance that we’d not be lucky enough to see a tomorrow; better live dangerously. So, my partner in crime and brother, Darryl, found a way for us to experience it right now, before you lot get to try it in the beta program. Oh! Here’s a link to sign up for it.
Brackets is free and licensed under the MIT License and maintained on GitHub. Currently, Brackets has yet to achieve version 1.0. It gets updates roughly twice a month. Brackets, at the time, is under active development and may have a lot of bugs. Right now, it is at its Sprint 38th build. It offers support for many other non-web programming languages and styling languages like CSS, SCASS, SCSS, SASS, etc. It’s pretty much better than most of its competitors.
Ghost is a new blogging platform. It has a refreshingly innovative and responsive UI – one that can clearly be seen as the future of blogging. You might want to visit Ghost’s website to know more about it. I promise, once you’ve learnt how it works, you won’t stop thinking about it. While you’re at it, do learn how it’s installed on the Raspberry Pi from our tutorial below.
Ghost runs on Node.js and, like WordPress, is free to download and use. It is expressly intended to be a blogging platform unlike the recent evolution of WordPress.
Node.js is a brilliant platform for creating network applications. It is mainly known for its non-blocking I/O and event driven system. In simple terms, Node.js can easily handle a large number of requests while simultaneously consuming lesser server memory. These are the attributes one should be looking for in a low power server like, you guessed it, Raspberry Pi. Here, you’ll learn how to setup Node.js for Raspberry Pi.
In this article, you’ll be learning how to install the Octopress Framework on your Raspberry Pi. We’ve tried it for some time now, and it is just plain amazing to work on. A blogging framework for hackers indeed.
