How to Write a Git Commit Message

Ha fejlesztő vagy, akkor az alábbi oldalt tedd el a bookmarkjaid közé és kezdd el alkalmazni az itt tanácsolt dolgokat:

If you haven’t given much thought to what makes a great Git commit message, it may be the case that you haven’t spent much time using git log and related tools. There is a vicious cycle here: because the commit history is unstructured and inconsistent, one doesn’t spend much time using or taking care of it. And because it doesn’t get used or taken care of, it remains unstructured and inconsistent.

Madarat tolláról, fejlesztőt git history-járól.

Broot

Ritkán van ilyen (talán a tmux és vim esetében éreztem ezt eddig), de a Broot nevű Terminal alapú tree replacement nálam changes everything. Ha egyszerűen kellene összefoglalni, akkor a fájlböngészés vimje. Elképesztően gyorsan tud vele az ember egy nagy mapparendszert átfésülni és manipulálni, úgyhogy meg fogom próbálni beépíteni a mindennapjaimba.

A Sandwich Video úgy néz ki tudott adaptálódni a COVID-19 helyzethez úgy, hogy korábban a remote munkát említve nevettek volna. Kíváncsi vagyok hosszútávon hasonló helyzetben lévő cégek hogyan fognak nyerni vagy veszíteni ezzel a járvánnyal.

Shrugs.app

Miután az új csapatban Slacket használunk kommunikációra, így megint felmerült a hivatalos Electronos kliens, amit nem vagyok hajlandó használni – akkor inkább megnyitom Safariban. Szerencsére most jött velem szembe a Shrugs app, ami egy egész pofás natív Slack kliens Macre.

Ezt a screenshotot pedig csak itt hagyom a poszt végén.

Steve Jobs fotói a macOS-ben

Eddig nem tudtam, hogy Steve Jobs fényképei voltak ezek a macOS hátterek:

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Steve Jobs liked to take pictures. He was even taking a picture the last time I saw him. However, many people might not know that some of his photos shipped as Desktop Pictures in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.

A Grass Blades hátteret én is használtam sokáig. Ez volt az a vizes, Vista-szerű, füves kép, amivel bemutatták a Leopardot a 2007-es WWDC-n. Kár, hogy nincs már belőle nagyobb felbontású verzió.

A Mac-based miracle

Apparently, you can create multiline text replacements on macOS:

It’s possible to use multiline text replacements on Mac, iPhone, and iPad, though you would need to use a Mac to create these text replacements.

On the Mac:

  1. Open System Preferences. Click on the “Keyboard” pane then click on the “Text” tab.
  2. Click the “+” button to add a new text replacement.
  3. Enter the shortcut text in the Replace column.
  4. Paste some multi-line/multi-paragraph text into the With column.

This text replacement syncs across all of your device using iCloud.

The Decade the Internet Lost Its Joy:

By 2010, personal blogs were thriving, Tumblr was still in its prime, and meme-makers were revolutionizing with form. Snapchat was created in 2011 and Vine, the beloved six-second video app, was born in 2012. People still spent time posting to forums, reading daily entries on sites like FML, and watching Shiba Inus grow up on 24-hour puppy cams. On February 26, 2015—a day that now feels like an iconic marker of the decade — millions of people on the internet argued about whether a dress was blue or gold, and watched live video of two llamas on the lam in suburban Arizona. Sites like Gawker, the Awl, Rookie, the Hairpin, and Deadspin still existed. Until they didn’t. One by one, they were destroyed by an increasingly unsustainable media ecosystem built for the wealthy.

Completely unrelated post from 2004 about lurkers and social media (social media meaning blogs at that time):

Taking it one step further, maybe the ‘magic numbers’ we see in networks of humans relate these meshing concepts to our mental capacity to juggle social data.

  • 12 being the average capacity to track nodes in a totally meshed network
  • 50 being the average capacity to track nodes in an optimally meshed network
  • 150 being the average capacity to track nodes in a sub-optimally meshed network.
  • above 150 being the sparsely meshed social network where anonymity and getting lost becomes possible.

If we relate this to blogs and Clay Shirky’s power law, teenage diaries blogs are possibly primarily on the 12/total meshing levels, professional content blogs are probably all in the 50 to 150 ranges, with distinct stability levels (my blog went from 0 to 12 inbound blogs then stabilized, then grew to just over fifty inbound blogs and stabilized again.) Above 150 people are more sparsely connected and start looking for beacons or leaders to orient themselves socially. This is the range where the broadcasting type blogs are, the A-listers.

I cried inside a little when I read teenage diaries. Yes, we used to have that. They were weird looking blogs rumbling about random crap, but it was creative and fun.

Why don’t we have things like that on the web anymore?

Read “Lurking, Twitter, The Commons, and Private Posts“.

Within this setting, since roughly late 2016, I’ve been posting almost all of what I read online or in books, magazines, or newspapers on my own website. These read posts include some context and are often simply composed of the title of the article, the author, the outlet, a summary/synopsis/or first paragraph or two to remind me what the piece was about, and occasionally a comment or two or ten I had on the piece.

Dave Winer made a video about how he blogs which is very unique. Basically he edits an OPML file that gets synced to scripting.com—it also looks like an outline. I like how quickly he can change anything on his blog.
