Ever see a close button that uses the letter x rather than the glyph ×?

Glyphy has you covered on this front. Whether it be the correct ×, , or the elusive © … all the glyphs are just a click away!

The site is beautifully designed, the url is simple to remember, and it works super cleanly on your phone.

Take a step back and see how other developers do it.

As someone who has been writing code for a long time, I find that I really get stuck in my ways. Over time new editors roll around, new hardware, new everything. is a fantastic website by Wes Bos, providing an almanac of developers’ websites, linking out to their respective /uses pages.

What is a /uses page?

A “uses” page, in this context, is, as the website describes: a page detailing developer setups, gear, software, and configs. Still confused? Here are a few great examples.

Now, why is that useful? Well, if you’re like me and are stuck in your ways, its always healthy to take a breath and see how other people like to work. You just might learn something new!

How can I add myself?
