How Devs Can Better Collaborate With CodeKit

Keeping a development team on the same page can be quite the challenge, especially if they are collaborating remotely and the workflow is unnecessarily complicated. Fortunately, an elegant and simple solution to this problem is available for Mac developers: CodeKit and Blrt.  Your development team will never miss a beat once they employ the straightforward simplicity of CodeKit and efficient communication capabilities of Blrt.

CodeKit makes you cool

CodeKit prides itself on being “A Mac App for Cool People” and goes about maintaining that reputation by enabling users to compile Less, Sass, Markdown, Javascript – you name it! – all in the same application.

Founder Bryan Jones wrote the first version of CodeKit in 2011 and enjoyed immediate success. Before long many of the largest companies in the world were using his creation and this drove him to create the second version shortly thereafter.

The beauty of CodeKit is the way that it simplifies life for developers by automating many development processes and keeping everything under one roof. Importing a stylesheet? CodeKit does the hard yards for you. Missed a syntax error? CodeKit didn’t, and it will show you where the error is in your file.

Many other functions are automated, including minifying, file combination, and image optimization. For those who are no longer vibing on the command line, CodeKit is a Godsend.

Because CodeKit keeps everything in one place and automates so much of the development workflow, it is well-suited to collaboration between developers.

Collaborating remotely is likewise just as simple with the help of Blrt. Developers can easily drop screenshots of CodeKit into Blrt before pointing and drawing over code while explaining their feedback or any changes that need made. Misunderstandings between collaborators will become a thing of the past and the straightforward, one-stop-shop functionality of CodeKit will take care of the rest.

We happen to think it’s pretty cool but we won’t be adding ‘cool’ to our masthead (à la CodeKit) until we finally get that Blrt-green motorcycle we’ve been eying off.

About Blrt

Blrt helps you get your point across quickly by allowing you to talk, point and draw over images, documents and websites. The resulting video-like recording is called a Blrt.

Your Blrts require much less bandwidth than video and can be shared with anyone on mobile or desktop. This makes Blrt ideal for both collaboration and the creation and sharing of dynamic content, as public Blrts can be embedded into any webpage.

Once recorded, Blrts are stored in the cloud and are exchanged with others in a conversation-like fashion. A record is kept of the exchange, and new parties and media can be added at any time.

Blrt shifts time and place, allowing users in a conversation to participate in their own time. In an era where activity-based working and distributed teams are commonplace, Blrt is revolutionising the way people interact to get things done.
