How to Include JavaScript and CSS in Your WordPress Themes and Plugins
So your working on your WordPress theme, and need to include some javascript or css, just throw it in the header or footer right? Well, actually Wordpress has it's own preferred way of including js and css. If you follow their best practices, you can avoid the risk of conflicting with other themes and plugins. - Mitchell McKenna from Mento

Bootswatch: Themed swatches for Bootstrap
I recently posted a link to "Beautiful Buttons for Twitter Bootstrap" which allows you to pick different colors for your bootstrap elements, but this goes a step further. It provides examples of how easy it is to swap out color palettes and fonts for Bootstrap. - Mitchell McKenna from Mento

SimpLESS - Cross-platform LESS CSS Compiler - http://wearekiss.com/simpless
SimpLESS - Cross-platform LESS CSS Compiler
One of my only issues with ever popular LESS.app is that it's not available on Windows or Linux; I often switch between linux and mac environments so I was glad to see SimpLESS does just that, a less compiler for all 3 big operating systems. SimpLESS will watch files for when you save them and compile your LESS files on the fly to css. It supports @import parsing, minificaiton, and will display syntax errors if you have an error in your syntax. - Mitchell McKenna from Mento

Iconic Icon Set – 177 Icons (Vector, Type, Raster) - http://somerandomdude.com/work...
Iconic Icon Set – 177 Icons (Vector, Type, Raster)
Iconic is intended to be minimal renderings yet unique in form. Alternatives for several marks have been added for greater choice in style. Works in all sizes; one main goal for these icons were to have them maintain high legibility over a large scale range. Almost all of the icons in this set will work from 8×8 pixels to however large you need to go. To give the greatest flexibility, the icon set packages all icons in PNG, SVG, SWC, OFT/TTF/EOT and Omnigraffle stencil formats. All raster-format icons come in 5 sizes; 8×8, 12×12, 16×16, 24×24 & 32×32 pixels as well as 14 colors. This set is currently licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 license. - Mitchell McKenna from Mento

GitHub Buttons with Watch and Fork Counts - http://www.markdotto.com/2011...
GitHub Buttons with Watch and Fork Counts
Mark Dotto of Twitter has created GitHub buttons to provide consistent, easy-to-use links back to a GitHub project. The buttons are very similar to the kind of social buttons for twitter and Facebook you see on blog posts. For their initial release functionality is limited to a static link back to your repo and dynamic counts for the number of watchers and forks on any public repo. In the future it will expand on this to support user profiles and dynamic buttons via oAuth. - Mitchell McKenna from Mento

neo4j: Graph / Hierarchy NOSQL Database - http://neo4j.org/
neo4j: Graph / Hierarchy NOSQL Database
Neo4j is an open source graph database, storing data in the nodes and relationships of a graph. An intuitive graph-oriented model for data representation. A disk-based, native storage manager completely optimized for storing graph structures for maximum performance and scalability. Neo4j can handle graphs of several billion nodes/relationships/properties on a single machine and can be sharded to scale out across multiple machines. A powerful traversal framework for high-speed traversals in the node space. Can be deployed as a full server or a very slim database with a small footprint (~750k jar). A simple and convenient object-oriented API. Unlike twitter's FlockDB, neo4j can handle multiple levels of hierarchy. However where FlockDB is better is it's low latency, high throughput and inherent distributed nature. - Mitchell McKenna from Mento

A simple, no-frills, robust jQuery plugin for creating beautiful slideshows for your featured content. Basic jQuery Slider has been developed to be as simple and lightweight as possible. Only the essential functionality has been included combined with clean semantic mark-up. This means instead of removing features and bending a slider plugin to suit your needs, you can use this slider and as a base and extend it to be as feature rich, or as simple, as you need. Slides can contain any valid HTML markup. Slide and fade animations. Supported in all major browsers. Easy to theme. Supports keyboard navigation. Super lightweight, at 4.6kb minified. - Mitchell McKenna from Mento

"A template of sorts, absent of design or layout, that will help you avoid some of the major rendering problems with the most common email clients out there — Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo Mail, etc. While not plug and play, it will provide some helpful examples and snippets that will keep your email design rendering as true-to-form as possible. We use Paul Irish's HTML5 Boilerplate as our starting point. And after a little jquery love, 960 peace, and html5 grease; this site came to be." - Mitchell McKenna from Mento
