I’ve only spent a short amount of time with it so far but Deckset is impressing the hell out of me for creating Keynote-like presentations with Markdown syntax. I love creating minimalistic slides and I always feel like going from notes to slides loses something. Now I can create my notes with the slides being in-line with the content using a minimalistic design language in Markdown. ❤
It’s only available for Mac through the Apple Mac App Store at the moment.
If you’ve been around long enough to have used Microsoft DOS as your primary operating system, you might remember Norton Commander.
Managing files in DOS was a pain in the butt without something even remotely graphical. I loved the two panes and simplistic navigation in folders. In fact I think Norton Commander made me better at command line stuff after I got a visualization of the file structure.
After I got into Linux/Unix/Mac OS X I was so tickled when I found Midnight Commander. MC is a port (only visually) of the original Norton Commander. It’s awesome and I’ve used it for years.
Recently I found a replacement for Finder on Mac OS X that looks shockingly similar. It’s called Commander One.
Midnight Commander is free and open source – which means you can dig into how it works and help fix bugs you might find. It’s a pretty stable product though and still actively worked on. Commander One is free but not open source. There are “Pro packs” you can purchase to add additional functionality.
