Handlebars.js: Minimal Templating on Steroids

Handlebars.js: Minimal Templating on Steroids | Dev workflow | Scoop.it

Great templating, particularly for mobile due to its precompiled templates feature.

 

Using Cake allows you to write templates in jade, compile to html and then convert to handlebars.

Zepto.js: the aerogel-weight jQuery-compatible JavaScript library

Zepto.js: the aerogel-weight jQuery-compatible JavaScript library | Dev workflow | Scoop.it

I'd much rather use the tiny Zepto when comparing it to JQuery, for DOM manipulation there isn't much Zepto can't do that Jquery can.

 

Plus if you already know how to use jQuery, you already know how to use Zepto.

CoffeeScript

CoffeeScript | Dev workflow | Scoop.it

The wonderfull CoffeeScript :)

 

Underneath all those awkward braces and semicolons, JavaScript has always had a gorgeous object model at its heart. CoffeeScript is an attempt to expose the good parts of JavaScript in a simple way.

Guard

Guard is a command line tool to easily handle events on file system modifications.

 

Guard is a great tool even when your working on a non-ruby project. I often use a Guardfile, instead of a Cakefile, for its ease of use.

jQuip - Smaller, Lighter, Faster, more modular jQuery - CodeVisually

jQuip - Smaller, Lighter, Faster, more modular jQuery - CodeVisually | Dev workflow | Scoop.it

When projects require jQuery but size matters, there's Jquip. Jquip is a stripped down, faster, more modular – include only the parts you want – of jQuery. It is only 4.28KB (minified and gzipped) meaning it is only 13% of jQuerys actual size, yet has 90% of the really useful parts of jQuery (the rest can be added with plugins as needed).
