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.
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.
When developing code related to the WordPress heartbeat, it is frustrating to make your code changes and then wait for the next heartbeat to occur. You can trigger the WordPress heartbeat in the browser manually to eliminate this delay.
One day I realized that the last 10% of the shampoo bottle lasted at least as long as the first 90%. I suspected this was because most of the time I was using too much shampoo but as I neared the end of the bottle I used a more appropriate amount. How could I trick my brain to always use the appropriate amount?
Sometimes when I’m working with files in Git, I find myself with a change in a file that says “No newline at end of file”. This occurs when my editor adds the missing newline at the end of the file. While you should have a newline at the end of the file, you may have a reason for not wanting to add this change. In that case, you can remove the newline from the end of the file.
I want to be able to type “git open-github-pr” and have my browser open to the GitHub URL to create a Pull Request (PR) for my current branch on the current project I’m working on. Here is how I built this.
When using git add -p and faced with a hunk that can not be split sufficiently for your purposes, you can use the e option (manually edit the current hunk). Unfortunately, after manually editing the current hunk it is common to get the message “Your edited hunk does not apply.” I’ve found there are some things I can do to avoid this failure.
When performing a Git rebase, I often find myself in the situation where I have one or more merge conflicts. This is how I resolve these merge conflicts.
Recently on a project I wanted to migrate WordPress users with a certain role to a different role. This is the command I used.
When you are using Git commit validation (a.k.a. commit linting) and it fails, it is frustrating to re-type your message. Git stores the commit message that failed validation. You can use this stored message to start your new commit message.
