That’s it! Sourcing our plugin once more, we can switch macOS’s appearance to dark mode and have Vim automatically follow when it gains focus.

The bathroom has more cabinet space than we need. That’s convenient, as it allows us to not open the cabinet with the forgotten half set of dentures ever again. 😨

A canoe trip in Norway in 2017. We pitched our tent on a slope, so I couldn’t sleep. Instead, I decided to keep the fire going. It didn’t really get any darker than this.

One of my favorite productivity tips is to unwatch all repositories you don’t need to read every update from.

By default, you’ll watch everything in your organization, which is probably overkill. If you unwatch, you’ll only get notified when you’re mentioned or participating.

I’ve been experimenting with with grayscale syntax highlighting on and off a couple of weeks now. I think it looks nice, and I’m not missing the colors at all.

Meet Grim, a work-in-progress Vim theme based on Dim, but with monochrome colors for code.
