My Updated 3.18 Packages For GNOME Extensions

Feedly Mosaic Userstyle Updated To V4.0.0 Plus New Responsive Mode

Feedly Mosaic Userstyle, Reclaim Your RSS Grid

The outstanding RSS Reader app called Feedly released a new version of the app with v14. Version 14 comes with a lot of new features, bug fixes, speed improvements and much more but unfortunately they decided to kill the "Mosaic" view (Grid) from v14. Feedly decided to replace the "Mosaic" view (my preferred view) with a new "Cards" view which essentially was an attempt to do the vertical column layout style made famous by Pinterest. In my opinion, and many others, this was a mistake. I decided to create a userstyle with the browser addon, Stylish. Before we get to the userstyle that I created and the reasons of why I created it...you should first know what a Userstyle is and what Stylish is.

Feedlet: Feedly Add Feed (subscription) Bookmarklet

Feedly is Awesome! For those who don't know, Feedly is a cross-platform and cross-browser RSS Reader app. I have used Feedly off and on for years now but due to the closure of Google Reader, Feedly has become a vastly more dominant force in the RSS realm. Feedly has a LOT of great features and tools but there was one thing I wanted to be a little bit easier, the process for adding new feeds (subscriptions) to the application.

Two Google Translate Bookmarkets

Recently I have been working on a Linux project called "uGet" which is a download manager app for Linux (Ubuntu, Fedora, Mint, OpenSUSE, etc) and I have been trying to do some social networking for it through Twitter. Turns out a lot of people who use download managers and Linux and Twitter speak languages other than English. "Go Figure" I know, right! Interestingly enough, the most popular language among these users is Indonesian. It doesn't need to be said but I will...I don't know Indonesian AT ALL, so when I want to tell them about uGet I need to use a translator and the best free option right now is Google Translate.

Wunderlist FogApp - Updating from 0.1 to 0.2

The update process for 0.1 to 0.2 is a bit different. I am creating a PPA version and a Non-PPA version of the Wunderlist FogApp for people who don't like using 3rd-party PPAs...which I understand...and for those people I built an in-app Version Checker for informing them of new updates to both the FogApp and to FogApp Themes.
