I am assuming that you already know what Org or org-mode is and that’s why you are here.
If you like what you see there, here are the steps for installing the development version of Org.
I use emacs – with a server1 and client setup – so that I
can quickly open new files in it using
emacsclient. My typical setup
is to have
tmux on one monitor and a single emacs(client)
frame on another. But there are times when I do not want to
shift focus from one monitor to another, like when I just need to
review some log file. So I started using an alias to
emacs -nw -Q to
quickly open log files, review, filter, and
Of course, that’s not where this post ends. An alias was no longer adequate to do what I wanted it to do more ..
You already got
go installed, and that’s why are you reading it.
If not – Go! Install it!
This post is about how you can install the latest versions of
hugo and the go
package that adds the org-mode support –
To connect to a machine with ip MACHINE, you simply need to enter the below at command-line:
See below for a list of commands you would typically use once you
ftp to a machine.
Lately, I have come to know of a command line search utility called
ripgrep, coded in
rust, that is capable of faster code searches (at least for my use cases) than
ag. So I got interested in building the latest versions of
rg (ripgrep binary name) directly from its github master branch rather than waiting for its release binaries.
So came the need to install the
rust toolchain on my machine. Luckily, installing that was super easy; here are the steps:
I was working on a
tcsh script that did some cool stuff. But if a user ran that script not knowing the true impact of the script, it could make some bad irreversible changes.
While I could simply echo a warning statement and put a
sleep 10, I wanted the wait time to be shown live.
Surprised by that, I started looking around1 if there was a way to optimize the cloned git repositories i.e. the
.git/ directories. And sure enough, there was a way.
I often need to check if a particular executable is present in the
PATH before I can proceed with what I am doing in a shell script. Also I need to work with both
bash scripts. Below presents the different solutions that have worked for these shell scripts for me.
