Adaptive Backgrounds – a jQuery plugin to extract dominant colors from <img> tags and apply them to their parent.
Hat tip to Thomas Gumz for this.

At the end of 2010, we released an exclusive Mac utility app, called Structurer. This app allows you to rapidly create file/folder structures for your new projects. Less than a month later, the developer, Cesar Tessarin, is back with a much improved version which now provides support for template creation, as well as assigning custom content automatically to newly created files. It’s fantastic, and, even better, 100% free to all of our readers!

There is also a “Structurer Pro” version available for Nettuts+ Premium Members >
Update: Hat tip to Jino Conklin for showing me Structurer in class earlier this quarter.
var parser = document.createElement('a');
parser.href = "http://example.com:3000/pathname/?search=test#hash";
parser.protocol; // => "http:"
parser.hostname; // => "example.com"
parser.port; // => "3000"
parser.pathname; // => "/pathname/"
parser.search; // => "?search=test"
parser.hash; // => "#hash"
parser.host; // => "example.com:3000"
Enjoy and thanks Ryan!
Sometime in February 2014, Steve McDonagh and I will be launching an online coding school. I hear you saying “Bruce, there are tons of these available already. Why would you do this?”. Well, let me tell you why. Our school will hold one class at a time and will be limited to twenty students. Ten of them will work with Steve and ten of them will work with me.
Upon completion of the class, attendees can make a $50 donation that will be given to charity if they wish.
Enrollment will open starting in January. Stay tuned for more information and for a list of other courses we plan on offering.
