Sassy Colors

Sass makes managing colors in your web site much easier. Sass variables provide a simple way to assign a label to a hex value, so you never have to remember the hex value again.

For example:

$red: #962d3e;

body {
   color: $red;


Alternatively, Sass maps also work really well.

For example:

$colors: (
   red: #962d3e,
   blue: #343642

body {
   color: map-get($colors, red);

footer {
   color: map-get($colors, blue);



rsync is a great free utility for transferring and synchronising files between computers. rsync is available for Linux, MacOS and Windows (through the Cygwin command line interface).

Here are some of my most frequently used rsync commands.

  1. Copy / synchronise files from a local computer to a remote computer using ssh:

rsync -avhe ssh /path/to/directory abc@123.456.789.10:/path/to/remote-directory
