123dev #45: Skills, stories, and software every dev should know
By Justin Garrison • Issue #45 • View online
Some weeks I love the structure of this newsletter. It helps me not dump a ton of information but focus on just a few things each week. Other weeks—like this week—I have a ton of cool tools and articles to share but can’t if I want to follow my own rules.

Picking yourself up
Learning new things is hard. I don’t care if it’s a programming language, being a parent, or starting a business. One of the hardest things about being a developer is it’s such a new profession you’re constantly learning new things. If you’re not falling on your face once in a while you’re not moving forward.

I don’t like many things about Thomas Edison, but he certainly had a positive outlook on failure.

Gogh is a neat tool to that can add themed profiles to your terminal emulator (Linux and macOS). What I really like is the website which shows the colors used in the theme and provides some basic filters to find the perfect theme.
Speaking of screenshots. Lots of people know about carbon for providing screenshots of code files which can be easily styled. I learned this week that there’s also a CLI to use the service. This was especially nice for me because instead of using a file I could pipe to the CLI to get screenshots of command output.
Speaking of something you can pipe commands to, seashells lets you pipe any command output to a URL. I’m still not sure why I like this so much or when I’d ever use it, but it certainly is cool.
Did you enjoy this issue?
