  • Shell Tricks: man pages

    Man pages make Unix go 'round. I can't think of any system that's better documented, and the answers are almost always right at your fingertips.…

  • Shell Tricks: One Git Alias to Rule Them All

    Continuing the Shell Tricks series, here's a handy Git trick. I'll be moving away from the Git tips soon, so don't lose heart if you love the command line but aren't a big Git fan.…

  • Shell tricks: Changelogs with Git

    I've been collecting some shell tricks. The list got long enough to warrant a few posts, so this is part one of a few. I'm going to add them to the "Bash Fun" series rather than creating a new one, so that's the place if you want to track them.…

  • Tower 2 is twice the Git power

    Git fans are often command line nuts. I know I am. But complex git operations can often be tedious, no matter how experienced you are. I fell in love with the Tower git client some time ago, and it makes using Git easy whether you're an old pro looking for a fast solution for complex operations, or a total newbie with no command line experience. It makes complex merges, chunking and cherry picking, rolling back changes, etc. a breeze. Tower 2 is out today, and it's a complete re-imagining of…

  • GitHub tip: easily sync your master to GitHub Pages

    On the occasion that you're working on a web-related project using GitHub, you may want to simply mirror your demo pages or entire master` branch over to the Github Pages for your project to make them web-accessible. An example case for this would be the development of a JavaScript tool that includes an "examples/" section. It would be most convenient to just let people browse that as a webpage from GitHub, keeping it up to date every time the `master branch changes.…

  • Git logger revisited

    I'm working out of NYC this week, and putting in a little leisure coding time this evening. I realized as my nvALT git logger note updated that I was only running the logger on my home machine and it wasn't logging things I didn't explicitly ssh in and pull down. I updated the script tonight to do a fetch before and include remotes when it creates the log entries.…

  • Scatterbrains: git as biographer

    This is another of my attempts at keeping track of my day in an orderly fashion. It's a pretty simple idea. Given that most of of what I do is stored in git repositories, my commit logs are my best bet for seeing what I've accomplished each day. I just needed to pull them together and bundle them up without having to think about it. If a lot of your work happens in git repositories and you make frequent commits, this might be of use to you.…

  • How to be popular at parties

    If you want to be popular, you need to spend most of the party loudly pontificating on really, really nerdy stuff. It will seem like it's not working at first, but keep going. I promise everyone will love you in the end. Here are a couple of inspiring topics for your next soire (this intro paragraph is me trying to justify a rambling post that will likely not make me many friends).…
