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.
By default all of the WordPress database tables will start with the prefix “wp_” (e.g. wp_users, wp_posts, etc.). Because this is the default value, you’ll often hear the tables referred to (and written about) using the “wp_” prefix. Let’s look at how and why this prefix is modified.
In the WordPress database table “wp_term_taxonomy”, each row almost always has the same value for the two columns ‘term_taxonomy_id’ and ‘term_id’. What is the difference between these two columns?
When using Scriptless Social Sharing, you may want to add a site wide hashtag to all of your tweets. This is the code you can use to do that.
While working on another post, I had some very large tables and I wanted to use Bootstrap Responsive Tables by adding the .table-responsive class but only in the situation where the table is too wide. This is the code I used.
How to use grep to search for a word in a file while excluding certain directories is easy with the “–exclude-directory” option, but even when this option is not available we can still get the same results with some command line magic.
