We’d been using BitTorrent Sync to share some folders between our team members that were too large for the usual cloud services.  The problem was that the folks there decided to go all commercial and make it quite expensive to use for a small development team.  They also changed the name & branding to Resilio.

We needed to find an alternative and a little searching lead to SyncThing.  This is a similar solution to what BitTorrent Sync used to be, and while it’s a lot less polished, it’s free, open source and multi-platform.

We made the switch and are pretty content with the results.  Check it out.

Visual Studio for Mac

Microsoft recently released a trial version of Visual Studio for Mac.  While not exactly Visual Studio, it does seem interesting.  It’s built on Xamarin Studio, a product purchased by MSFT, and while it has some teething issues we’re all hoping for improvements to make it as useful as Visual Studio is on Windows.


OnePress theme

We’re using the OnePress theme by FameThemes (preview).  We like its simplicity and flexibility.  However, we’ve had a few issues with the way it displays various items and have made some custom modifications.

The best way to do this is by making a child theme, and then modifying the files for the child theme.  This way, the original theme remains unchanged and updating it should break your customizations.
