Colorize log files on CentOS and Ubuntu using ccze tool

Even though you might be using centralized logging tools like Splunk, Logstash, or Sumologic, occasionally you just want to go in and tail a log yourself. Ccze is an awesome, custom-color formatting tool that makes the arduous task of reading/searching through logs a little more pleasant.

Introducing the Behance Wallpaper App

What’s on your computer desktop? For most of us, it’s a vacation photo from years ago, a default background that came with the computer, or something you set a few months ago that you haven’t had a chance to change.  We design our office spaces to maximize creativity and inspiration, but what about the place where we spend hours of our time, the computer?

wallpaperapp

That’s why we created the Behance Wallpaper app—an easy way to make your workspace more beautiful and discover new creative work at the same time. For this first time, see creative work from Behance in all its hi-res, full screen glory on your desktop.

 

Once you install the Wallpaper app, you can choose from one of 60 designs (with an option to sort by creative field) by some of Behance’s top creatives, then choose how often you want to change your background—hourly, daily, weekly, monthly. Whatever your setting, the desktop will automatically change so you have a new design as often as you like. The app will stay fresh, with new designs added each month on top of what’s there now.

Loving a particular wallpaper and want more? You can follow the creatives behind the designs directly from the app.

Download the Behance Wallpaper app in the App Store.

Developer’s Toolkit: Mike Sherov

This post is part of a series where Behance developers talk about the various tools they use to get things done and make ideas happen.

noname1. Who are you, and what do you do at Behance?
I’m Mike (and that’s one of my twins, Grant, on my shoulders. Julian’s a bit shy!). I’m primarily a JS engineer, but I also dabble in PHP, Mustache, and SCSS. I guess you’d say I’m a full stack dev who just prefers writing JS. I have a strong passion for testing, deployment, and code quality. I maintain (and contribute to) Behance’s static analysis toolchain: SCSSLint, JSHint, JSCS, PHPCS, and am currently working on centralized logging using Sumologic.

Most Appreciated Projects: Monthly Roundup

Appreciations are a way to send genuine kudos to another creative professional on Behance. This is our community’s way of curating the network, so that the best projects gain the most exposure. Here’s a look at two of the most appreciated projects on Behance this month:


The stair truck returns! A project filled with “Greatest Rides” from film and TV, from Dumb & Dumber to Back To the Future and Beyond. Kudos, Ido Yehimovitz.


Tom Anders Watkins of the UK’s super-popular animal logo exploration. In his words: “exploring ways in which logos can be formed using only basic shapes nd minimalist techniques.”

 

 

June’s #workspacewednesday

For this edition of #workspacewednesday, we wanted to start sharing some photos from our own work spaces here at the Behance office in New York City.  First, some context.

We’re located in Soho, a neighborhood sandwiched between Greenwich Village to the north and Chinatown to the south.  Known as the Soho Cast Iron Historical District, the neighborhood was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1978 and many of the side streets still sport Belgian block roads and cast iron architectural elements.  During the second half of the 20th century, Soho was home to artist lofts and performance spaces.  In the early 2000s. the area changed drastically thanks to retail outposts from Apple, Bloomingdales and many others and in recent years, Soho has been included in Silicon Alley, New York City’s burgeoning tech scene.

As you might notice, we name our rooms.  This one is Victore, named after our friend James Victore.  The Library was “constructed” when we spread our office out to the floor below us.  Originally, we had some bookcases here and there, but we decided that we needed a space where someone could sit and contemplate or learn something new.  Or take a conference call.  We usually take a lot of conference calls.

I’m Rachel White, and I’m a Software Engineer. I’m on the JavaScript team and I mostly work on refactoring legacy code to be more up-to-date with new standards we’ve set for ourselves. Sometimes I work on CSS projects and prototyping new ideas for the site, too.

Developer’s Toolkit: Mark Dunphy

This post is part of a series where Behance developers talk about the various tools they use to get things done and make ideas happen.

Hello it's Mark!1. Who are you, and what do you do at Behance?

By now you’ve probably already learned my name, so I suppose I won’t go into that. However, I will tell you that I’m a backend software engineer at Behance.  I have the interesting position of floating between teams and products quite frequently, so I get to leave a little Mark (hah, get it?) on everything.  Beyond the sprinkling of love and code I put into other team members’ projects, I’m primarily responsible for Behance emails (notifications, automated digests, switching service providers, you name it) and fighting spam.
