Ghostly Vagrant & Ghost Skeleton

Last month I decided use Ghost on our travel site, [Destinationless](http://destinationless.com “Destinationless – Life is a journey, not a destination.”), and a couple weekends ago I finally made the move (you can read more of why here).

Safari Responsive Extension

For those of you that may not know, I use Safari quite a bit. I am not here to proclaim that it is the best browser, but it is the one that I prefer because it connects my reading list, bookmarks, open windows, and more. However, it does lack a few features that make web development easier, including no way to easily resize the browser window for testing responsive websites (yeah, Firefox handles that very well).

Thankfully there is an awesome JavaScript library that enables an in-frame viewport resizer (you can get it here). There is even a WordPress plugin (Responsible) that adds the functionality to the admin bar, but I don’t work in WordPress all the time (or may not have access to install plugins on the project).

As such, I created an extension for Safari that enables using this awesome tool on any website. If you use Safari and need a viewport resizing tool (that does not resize the application window, ugh!), download Safari Responsive Extension and give it a try.
