Do you love Sublime Text? Looking for a color scheme that looks good in lots of languages and takes advantage of as many scopes as possible? Check out my Neon Color Scheme, available through Package Control. Also works great in TextMate.

Also, check out Python Improved, a better, updated Python .tmLanguage syntax definition for Sublime and TextMate. Fixes lots of bugs with the existing syntax, and adds new scopes for IPython, Django, Python 3 support, and much more. Use Neon for customized syntax highlighting, or modify your favorite color scheme.


Looking for a great Linux hosting provider geared toward developers with shell access, a bunch of ready-to-deploy apps, and awesome tech support? Check out WebFaction, my favorite alternative to the big hosting beasts. They run CentOS 6 x64, have datacenters around the world, and have a full suite of regularly-updated development and deployment tools. And did I mention they're cheap? My basic plan with 512MB RAM, 100GB disk, and 600 GB bandwidth/month is just US$8.50/mo! (if you prepay for a full year - US$102). Check out all these other features:

  • Full control over shell access (multi-user capability), email, and DNS.
  • Python, Ruby/Rails, PHP, Java, Perl, shell scripts...
  • Ability to install whatever software tools you need, and execute long-running processes.
  • nginx and Apache, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, MongoDB...
  • "One-click" (actually, several clicks and some typing) installers for a whole bunch (and different versions) of popular applications like Django, Rails, WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and more.
  • and a ton of other stuff.

I honestly don't know of any other hosting provider that has a similar product, and if one exists I can't imagine it's as cheap. BTW, I don't work for them, I'm just a very satisfied customer.


Why Pigimal?

I sometimes call my guinea pig (also known as a cavy) "Pigimal", which is short for "Piggy Animal." Now you know.
