I have recently started using Karma a test runner for JavaScript that runs off Node.js.  It then tests your JavaScript using a testing framework, like Jasmine, in a real browser!

The YouTube video does a great job explaining what it does, and how to use it. They changed their name from Testacular, so that’s why they keep mentioning it in the video.

The best feature in my opinion is the watching of your JavaScript source, so as soon as you save a .js file in sublime, the test runs in your console. Instant feedback on what you’ve broken!

slick – responsive carousel

The carousel everyone’s talking about at the momentslick. A very nice looking responsive carousel with touch events, items, fading, add + remove and more.


Looks good for a featured items, homepage slider and video list. I’d probably still use fotorama for image galleries, because of the large options for thumbnails and other more imagey specific things.
