Actions

Notes

From Knowledgebase

Totally random dump of facts.

  • To enforce a particular directory as the root directory for Pytest, just drop an empty pytest.ini file into the directory that you want to be the root directory.
  • To ensure that a GoCD pipeline can only run based on timer and never on a material, mark the first stage of that pipeline as manual. Or mark it as manual in the template itself.
  • Idempotency is an essential feature of automation software like Ansible and FreedomBox. I wonder if there's a way to write a test suite that checks each action in the system for idempotency.
  • Download a youtube playlist using
    $ youtube-dl -t <url>
  • Android activities are destroyed and recreated on screen orientation change. To avoid this, set
    android:configChanges="orientation|screenSize"
    under the Activity tag inside the AndroidManifest.xml. This only works if the minimum target version is API 13 or more.
  • To add a location to bookmarks in Nautilus file manager (default in Gnome 3), navigate to the directory and press Ctrl+D
  • Use org + LaTeX Beamer to rapidly create presentations. A simpler tool is mdp (markdown presenter)
  • Lektor builds a website by taking all the files in the content/ folder, processing them according to the rules of your Models and rendering them by using templates.
  • Create a REPL inside a Clojure REPL
    (defmacro loop_ [& body] `(while true ~@body))
    (-> (read) (eval) (println) (loop_))
