Best Markdown Editor Mac

I’ve been writing in Markdown since the day I learned about it back in, only God knows when. Since then, my main writing tool on my macOS was Sublime Text but for the last month or so, things have changed. I moved to Atom by Github and today, I am going to tell you how to turn Atom into the Best Markdown Editor for macOS.

Keyy Review: Best Clef Alternative

Keyy Review: Best Clef Alternative

I still remember the excitement that I felt when I found out about Clef, the no-longer-available two-factor authentication app that helped me get rid of the password that I use to login to News47ell’s admin dashboard. It was magical, but sadly, the excitement didn’t last for too long. Clef shut down and the team moved to join Twilio to work on Authy.

I was left with the same old, boring login method for my site.

Today, I get to be excited again thanks to the great people over at UpdraftPlus because they released their promised app they claim is going to be the heir of Clef.

Keyy two factor authentication, a brand new WordPress plugin, iOS & Android app by the developers of the popular WordPress backup plugin UpdraftPlus, is going to bring back the good old days of not having to enter that hard to remember password 1 every time I want to login to my admin dashboard.

So go ahead and read my Keyy Review: Best Clef Alternative and kiss your WordPress login password goodbye

UpdraftPlus Working on a Clef Alternative Called Keyy

Clef Alternative
UpdraftPlus released their Clef Alternative: Keyy. You can read my full review here.

The people over at UpdraftPlus have been hard at work making a Clef alternative. For those of you who don’t know what Clef is, it was one of the best, coolest and most innovative two-factor authentication apps that I have ever seen in my life.

With its blue signature bar-code, Clef managed to become the favorite two-factor authentication app amongst many people in the WordPress community because of the following reasons:

  1. Easy to pair your WordPress site with your Clef account using your phone’s camera.
  2. Easy to log in using your camera by scanning their uniquely designed barcode.
  3. Ability to hide login form, disable passwords and make Clef the only way to log in.
  4. Set up timed sessions.
  5. Sign out of your WordPress site from the app.

Now that it’s gone, people are looking for an alternative. There’s one company out there that dared to make a Clef alternative and that company is called UpdraftPlus.

So let’s take a look, who are they? What do they do? And how are they going to make a Clef alternative that is worth using?

How The Outline Use SVG & CSS Instead of Text Decoration Underline

Use SVG CSS Instead Text Decoration Underline

After leaving The Verge which he co-founded with few other great people, and after being personally fired by Michael Rubens Bloomberg, founder & CEO of Bloomberg L.P., Joshua Topolsky recently launched a new website called The Outline. A new kind of publication as they say with a very noticeable twist in the design department like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

If you visit The Outline (and you really should) you will notice right away how daring their design is. Different typefaces, colors, and layout for each and every article. Heck, there are articles with multiple typefaces for each of their titles, like this one.
