Reading meh's code


I don't always read meh's code
but when I do it, I convert tabs to spaces.

The bookmarklet: ↦ meh` (drag it to your bookmark bar)

UPDATE: Now works with GitHub expanding tabs to non-breaking-spaces (history here)

Autocomplete "git" as "g"

For all you lazy Git bums, here’s how you can type “g” got “git” and still have autocompletion (paste into your ~/.bash_profile or .dotfiles system):

alias g='git'
complete -o bashdefault -o default -o nospace -F _git g 2>/dev/null \
    || complete -o default -o nospace -F _git g

Let jRuby and Pow!™ be happy together

Turns out that Pow! won’t support jRuby anytime soon but the trick described in josh/nack#32 actually works, so rollup your shirt’s sleeves!

Go open node_modules/nack/lib/nack/server.rb inside ~/Library/Application Support/Pow/Current and replace sock.close_read on line 132 with:

# WAS: sock.close_read
rescue IOError
  raise unless RUBY_ENGINE == 'jruby'

Happy hacking!

I was asked to write about the talk I’ll give tomorrow at

Without giving away too much here’s a post I wrote some time ago about @instance_variables usage in Rails implementation.

Last I add a promise: it will be fun!
