Nth-test

I have seen so many tweets of late with people getting their heads frazzled with nth-child and nth-of-type. So I decided to knock this together so people can play around and test their nth’s out!

UnCSS

UnCSS is a tool that removes unused CSS from your stylesheets. It works across multiple files and supports Javascript-injected CSS.

The key things is that you can give a list of HTML pages to UnCSS and it will only remove CSS rules that aren’t present in any of them.

'Fallout Shelter' is Apple's #1 App, But Embodies The Shallowness Of Mobile

The whole thing does have a weirdly prison-like feel to it, with you in charge of assigning dwellers to various work roles using the SPECIAL system, where each letter is a different attribute that helps increase the efficiency of resource collection in ways that the game really never quite makes clear. Outside of resource generation, you eventually start unlocking different rooms that can train each letter of the SPECIAL stat. You can also assign your toughest dwellers to guard duty, and the game is ultimately weirdly focused on increasing your population count by encouraging any and every dweller inside to have sex with one another, get pregnant, and have children that will grow up to be put to work. Given that it’s impossible to remember who’s copulated with who, it isn’t long before your vault turns into a giant, non-stop swingers party.

Ok, I admit I laughed.

Google, Microsoft, Mozilla And Others Team Up To Launch WebAssembly, A New Binary Format For The Web

The team notes that the idea here is not to replace JavaScript, by the way, but to allow many more languages to be compiled for the Web. Indeed, chances are that both JavaScript and WebAssembly will be used side-by-side and some parts of the application may use WebAssembly modules (animation, visualization, compression, etc.), while the user interface will still be mostly written in JavaScript, for example.

This is huge news.
