160 Pixels: Unified Column Width for Designing Responsive Layouts

Months ago, mostly by accident, I started to design responsive websites within 160 px columns. I came to this idea because:

  1. responsive design is a must
  2. mobile-first is great as a design mindset
  3. narrows scope and boosts effectivity

OS X Yosemite Splash

Fast forward today.

There is this tiny app from Omni Group called Omni Disk Sweeper. This little fellow can calculate sizes for all of your directories. And when run with administrator rights (using sudo before app’s name from Terminal) it can calculate size of any directory otherwise hidden from your sight.

Happy cleaning my #apple friends.
