The Batch Post WordPress plugin gives authors the ability to generate numerous posts from a template post. Using the plugin’s custom shortcode, portions of both the title and the body of the template post can be indicated as content that should change through the generation process.
On a regular basis, Rob Schwartz needs to create a set of 10-50 posts with a little variance between each post. This is quite tedious to do manually, and that’s where the Batch Post plugin comes into play!

Ambient Weaver is an ambient sound player for macOS 10.12.2+ and Windows 10. The core mechanics of the player include the ability to create playlists which contain customizable sound tracks. Each track has controls for volume, a starting point, and whether or not the track should repeat. Normal audio players, designed for non-ambient songs, run one track at a time.
