Sometimes it's hard to find the right tool for the job

Time for a credits post! Here are a few tools that I’ve found very useful when working with Exposure:

JSLint
Great web based code quality tool that does a static analysis of your JavaScript code and tells you what’s wrong it.

Minify JavaScript
I use this web based Javascript compressor to create the minified version of Exposure. Works like a charm!

Please note: I develop Exposure on a Mac, so if you are on a PC the next two tools simply won’t do you any good.

YumuZip
Brilliant tiny zip application that lets you create Windows friendly zip archives on your Mac. No more problems with strange Mac OS X specific files in my release archives!

Smultron
Lightweight text editor app that launches in a heartbeat. Perfect when making smaller changes to JavaScript code. (The site seems to be a bit off currently, but still a great application).
