When downloading video from my iPhone to my Mac using Image Capture, I sometimes (but not always) get the error, “The operation couldn’t be completed. (com.apple.ImageCaptureCore error -9956.) (-9956)”. This is how I work around this error.
How to install dependencies with Composer (while ignoring your cached local versions). Typically, we shouldn’t have to do this but if we’re trying to recreate problems someone else is having it can be helpful.
I use Junegunn’s Vim plugin [vim-easy-align](https://github.com/junegunn/vim-easy-align/) to make it easier to align my code. This plugin does not have a default mapping for aligning the dollar sign ($). Because the plugin is designed to be extensible, I was able to add support for aligning by the dollar sign ($) by adding some lines to my .vimrc file.
Vim has a built-in command to close all windows except the current one (:only), which is nice for focusing on a single buffer. Sometimes I want to cleanup my buffers by closing all of the buffers except for the current one. This custom command is like :only for buffers instead of windows.
WordPress has two similar translation functions __() and _x(). The function _x() does the same thing as the function __() except the _x() function allows you to define a context for the translation (with the $context parameter). This is helpful when you have a string that could be two different words. For example there are two words that are spelled “tear” each with a separate meaning (and separate pronunciation). By including the context you could use both of these words and have them correctly translated based on their $context value.
I wanted to run the latest development version of Neovim (0.4.0) to use some of the latest features (e.g. the floating window). Unfortunately, my attempts to install it were failing. These are my notes on the problem and how I fixed it.
When using Vim sometimes I want to duplicate a file, however the default file explorer in Vim (netrw) does not handle this well. This is a Vim mapping I created to make duplicating a file easier.
When making a HubSpot API call to update a date picker field, I’m getting a response with “response code 400”, “error INVALID_DATE”, and the message includes “not midnight!”. This is why I’m getting this error and how I fixed this call.
Using Screenflow 6 with my Scarlet Solo USB connection, I end up with a recording only on the left channel. I want my recording to be on both channels (in stereo). This is how I do that.
When using Vim you can find your <Leader> by using echo for the value of “mapleader”, however there are some edge cases that make this less than ideal. If “mapleader” is undefined an error is thrown instead of showing the default <Leader>. If “mapleader” is not a visible character (e.g. <Space> or <Tab>), you can not see the value. I use the following command to display <Leader> while working around these edge cases.
