Here's a lil helper tool I made for Blender's metarig system. I have always been a fan of any tool that lets people animate faster if they hate the pains of rigging, and the new Metarig tool is a beast when it comes to that.
This tool takes it even further. The Metarig Shape Library takes the bones of your customized metarig, and simply assigns a library of draw shapes. BAM! Where previously you might have had trouble spotting what bones were control bones and how they worked, now they all look like nice grabbable widgets.
