  • 17:51 UTC (new) 2020-07-06 Auto renaming image files . . . . mbork Like probably everyone else, I have lots of pictures from digital camera(s). Cataloging them is basically a nightmare, and I lost any hope for doing that manually a long time ago. But why not make the computer do as much work as possible?


  • 11:51 UTC (new) 2020-06-27 Selective display . . . . mbork A few days ago I was working with some large JSON files. The top level of the file contained a large array, and each of its elements was a large object consisting of numbers, strings and other objects. I needed to work with a few elements at the top level of those objects, and did not want the lower-level objects to get in the way. In other words, I needed to hide them somehow.


  • 21:03 UTC (new) 2020-06-22 lodash iteratee shorthand . . . . mbork As is widely known, JavaScript is a language with good semantics, not-so-good syntax and a terrible standard library. There are a few modules that aim to help with the last part, and lodash is one of them that I happen to use. It is a very nice thing, but is not necessarily easy to learn for newcomers. One of its nice features is so-called “iteratee shorthand”, mentioned many times in the docs. What is that? Well, Lodash has (among many others) the _.iteratee function. It accepts one argument and returns a function. If the argument is a function, _.iteratee just returns the same function – nothing interesting (and if given null, it returns the identity function). The first interesting thing happens when the argument is a string or an integer.


  • 20:51 UTC (new) 2020-06-15 Emacs, Org-mode, Beeminder and pomodoros . . . . mbork As some of my readers probably know, I am a happy user of Beeminder, and I even wrote my own Emacs- and Org-based Beeminder client. For some time, I’ve been thinking about somehow incorporating the famous pomodoro technique into my productivity quiver. The problem was, I did know how exactly to do it. Until today.
