Here’s an article from last year that gives a really good introduction to service workers and provides a plug-in for the Craft CMS.
A plugin for Slack that will make it look like you’re typing whenever someone else is typing. It isn’t annoying at all.
A plug-in that lets multiple people collaborate on the same document in Atom. Could be useful for hackdays and workshops.
If you use the ProcessWire Content Management System, Johannes has written a handy plug-in that allows you to specify which files should be cached by a service worker.
It’s no substitute for testing with real devices, but the “device wall” view in this Chrome plug-in is a nifty way of getting an overview of a site’s responsiveness at a glance.
A plug-in for Sketch that allows you to simulate colour blindnesses and check colour contrasts.
Fight the scourge of performance-killing redirect-laden t.co links in Twitter’s web interface with this handy Chrome extension.
A handy Chrome extension to simulate different kinds of visual impairment.
A plug-in for Craft CMS for receiving webmentions. I’ll have to tell Charlotte about this (she’s using Craft for her site).
From the people who brought you youmightnotneedjquery.com comes youmightnotneedjqueryplugins.com.
Don’t get me wrong—jQuery is great (some of the plugins less so) but the decision about whether to use it or not on any particular project should be an informed decision made on a case-by-case basis …not just because that’s the way things have always been done.

I love the thinking behind this plugin that highlights the weasel words that politicians are so found of.
A handy plugin for Chrome that always you to inspect media query breakpoints and take screenshots at any of them.
If, like me, you’ve been using the “export to SVG” plugin for Fireworks and then opening up the resultant file to trim it down, Josh has got you covered: here’s a version of “export to SVG” that will result in much slimmer files.
This looks like a handy way of enhancing forms to have input masks (Luke W. would approve). Right now it’s a jQuery plug-in but I’m sure someone as smart as you would be able to create a standalone version, right?
A handy little script that attempts to check email inputs for misspelled domain names. I’m pretty sure it doesn’t need to be written as a jQuery pug-in, though: anyone want to fork it and create a non-jQuery version too?
