I found this regex useful when parsing log files to find everything except the data I needed. I can select and delete everything I don’t need and I am left with the lines of data I can work with. Continue reading
I wrote this plugin for Sublime Text to help on a project where I am localizing a lot of text.
I found I was copy and pasting the same i18n methods over and over so I decided that there must be a relatively easy way to automate this using a plugin.

I made the move from Coda to Sublime Text this week.
After only a week, I really, really like Sublime Text – it’s fast, pretty and customizable with a wide range of plugins available via the Package Manager.

One thing you will need to do is tell svn what revision of this remote SVN repository to load. To do that, do the following.
