Naturally, as a developer I learn new awesome things almost every day. I thought it might be a good idea to keep track of all those small Ah-Ha! moments and release a snippets post every month.
When I wanted to contribute code to
Pelican I naively added
.ropeproject to that repo's
.gitignore file. As a result, I was told in
the codereview that I should not pollute other project's
with unrelated stuff but rather use a global
.gitignore file instead. How
could I not know about this until now?!?
Just add the following code to your .gitconfig:
[core] excludesfile = $HOME/.gitignore_global
Then create the
.gitignore_global file and put stuff inside that your
editors of choice might produce.
So I finally got the
hjkl keys for movement into my muscle memory. Now it
annoys me that I have to use the arrow keys when I want to browse through the
various options that the code completion suggests. There is a vimbit for that:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15

Speaking of vimbits: vimbits.com recently flew through
my Twitter stream. I spent an hour there. As a result my
exploded with all kinds of awesomeness.
I thought that I was typing
git branch way too often (actually I type
git br, of course).
export PS1='\w\[\033[31m\]$(__git_ps1 "(%s)") \[\033[01;34m\]$\[\033[00m\] '
Hint: In order for this to work, you need to install git via Homebrew on OSX.
