Switched to zsh again because it’s the default in macOS Catalina.

So, any recommendations for a sturdy iPhone case you’ve used?

I’m mostly concerned with not cracking the screen again, so bulkier options are fine. Ideally, I wouldn’t have to worry about breaking another phone like this again.

It’s been eight days since the symbol selector gave out. Communication degraded. Haven’t found another way to fix it yet. The rest of the machine seems stable enough not to have to reboot, so I’ll be stuck like this for a while longer.

Are you just getting started with Vim-substitution-based editing? Don’t worry; the book has your back! This absolute classic is the first substitution I always reach for first. Never remove trailing whitespace manually again!

The Emoji & Symbols selector stopped opening a couple of days ago (both ^+⌘+Space and via Edit › Emoji & Symbols). Relaunching the Finder didn’t work, and I’m refusing to reboot my machine unless something else breaks.

@jkreeftmeijer I tend to do: `git push heroku HEAD:master`, which deployed the current branch I'm on.

Deploying a branch that’s not called `master` to Heroku (or pushing to a different branch name on remote in general)? Remembering to prefix the remote’s branch name with the local one might save you some confusion.

$ git push heroku my_branch:master

Where `heroku` is the remote, `my_branch` is the local branch name, and `master` is the remote branch name. Hopefully, I’ll get it right on the first try too, one day.

This. Also, don't require logging in (you can figure out the e-mail address), and don't ask which types of marketing e-mails they'd like to unsubscribe from. Unless, of course, if your app sends notifications the user actually signed up for.

The more I discuss my Go board LiveView article series with others, the more I feel like I’m actually accidentally writing a book.

$ git log master..part-2 --reverse --pretty=format:%b | wc
291 1465 9982

The almost-finished outline for part two is now close 1500 words in git commit messages. 😅

“🌞 Sun With Face. A yellow sun with a kind, smiling face. Not your typical smiling sun with big grin and sunglasses.”

The outline was a good starting point to write the story. It felt more efficient, as the work was split between prototyping and explaining code, and writing and editing an article. Plus, the example repository now has well-groomed commits and good explanations of all changes. 🙌

My current article series is based around writing an example application. As an experiment, I’m writing most of the draft in ~250-word commit messages in the example repository (github.com/jeffkreeftmeijer/ha).

To get a very rough outline for the first article, I printed the commit message bodies to a markdown file in reverse.

$ git log --reverse --pretty=format:%b > draft.md
