Real-time banner, sleep indicator, and more!
Recap of all things I've worked on recently
Hi there, it’s Tony here. 👊
Hope you had a great week!
Just want to throw some quick updates about things I’ve been working on.
🎉 Real-time banner is open for beta testers!
I have released the beta version of the real-time banner! 👉 https://blackmagic.so/real-time-banner
Still testing it. For now, you can show emojis on your banner (like mine!).
Soon I’ll add more widgets, like recent followers, bitcoin price charts, dynamic text, more templates, and backgrounds. Stay tuned!
✨ New update for DevUtils
I’m trying to keep pushing out 1 update every month for DevUtils. In this release, I added the JSON path query to the JSON Format/Validate tool. I really like it!
If you haven’t upgraded yet, upgrade now! See the full changelog here.
❤️ How to get engagement on Twitter
If you are a developer, you have huge leverage! Use your coding skill with some creativity to create something cool. Like this physic simulation I did with my Twitter banner.
💤 Show “zZZ” on your Twitter when you are sleeping?
110 people are using Sleep Indicator on Black Magic. I released this to the public a while ago, so you can use this too!
🖼 How to find someone on Twitter when you only remember their profile pic?
I put up something quickly to solve this. You can use Black Magic to visualize all profile pics of people you follow (or follow you)!
📖 Learn something new every day
When I first started selling apps, I used to get confused a lot with Tax. I had no idea what’s the difference between Paddle vs Stripe, or what to do when a customer asks me “please send me my tax invoice”.
If you are like me, check out this thread I write about Stripe Tax. 👇
