When I’m working with Git, there are times I want to check if I can do a fast-forward merge but I do NOT want to actually perform the merge.
Conceptually, “git reset” is erasing your last change while “git revert” is adding a new change that undoes your previous change.
I was checking a number of URL endpoints for CORS restrictions today and I wondered if I could check from the command line. Here are some example curl statement that get me the information I’m looking for. I think there is an opportunity for a custom function here but for now, these notes will do.
At breakfast, I told my son, “You’re lucky to have Special K cereal for breakfast.”
In Gutenberg (a.k.a. the WordPress Block Editor), keyboard shortcuts are displayed differently on Apple devices and other devices, e.g. ^H on an Apple device and Ctrl+H on other devices. This is accomplished with wp.keycodes.displayShortcut.
I wanted to render a ReactJS component for a limited amount of time every time (think of a notification that pops up and then goes away). Ideally, we would like to be able to apply this limited time rendering to any component, so this was an excellent candidate for a Higher Order Component (HOC).
A common programming pattern when using WordPress filters is the early return pattern (also know as the “short-circuit” pattern). This pattern is useful when you want to allow a filter to override a value that is “expensive” to calculate.
When I downsized to a 65% keyboard I knew I was giving up function keys and a number pad but what caught me off-guard was the loss of my backtick (a.k.a. grave accent(`)) key. Because my keyboard runs QMK firmware, I’ve tried a number of modifications.
I replaced my keyboard of many years with a Drop.com Alt keyboard. This keyboard uses QMK firmware, which allows you to create modified firmware and run it on your keyboard. These are my notes about how I built a copy of the firmware locally and pushed it to my keyboard.
In my zsh configuration I define a number of aliases. One particular zsh alias maps gl to my custom Git alias “git lg”. Since my zsh configuration is portable, I want to define a fallback if my custom Git alias does not exist on the machine.
