Just finished this morning a project at work that took me roughly a year to complete!
Also started a new project to build your own portable Wifi / ethernet access point with DNS blocker and e-ink screen to control it. Pretty proud, will share the project very soon over here

Get links for your GitHub files based on text, and forget the line numbers!

All Contributors

Why GitHub Link?

In Short

We usually create link-to-code to point our readers, users or developers to the exact code. But such links are created based on line-number and if you're updating the file regularly, those links will not point to correct line or you will need to keep updating your links. GitHub Link helps you to get the right link-to-code, based on text you give, so that it always points to contextually right definition. Jump to usage

In Long

We generally create permanent link to code snippet. As they are for specific commit, they work great when referred in issues/PRs.

But what if you want to give such links in your README or such files? Like you have already defined a coded file with proper comments and you want to give link to…

It has been one month since I've released my book Building Your Mouseless Development Environment which explains how to install Arch Linux, i3, Zsh, Neovim, and tmux.

... and I've reached 300 buyers today! Even crazier: nobody asked for a refund, and all feedback were super positive. This is a huge, massive, crazy win for me 🥰

This was my first official week as a manager in my new position and though it was extremely busy I completed most of my goals and even got in some professional development! I managed to write a blog post about Statamic in my free time one evening as well!

A PR to include simple support for the "dir" attribute in (X)HTML in OmegaT was accepted.

Exactly the kind of code modification that does not require to be a programmer, but only topic knowledge of HTML and the ability to read and understand the structure of code (basically, simple linguistics, nothing related to computer science).

Figured out how to do non-public Azure Container Registries through only using Private Endpoints.

At work (relatively new job, 3 months in) I set up a live environment for a customer. My first time doing that. But what I am most proud of is 'cleaning up' the git repo all by myself before I deployed the master branch to live. I merged everything into develop and merged that into master. Up untill last week I really felt like I would never really understand Git and all this abstract stuff (where is it going when I push? And other questions), but now.. it seems like I do 🤗🥳

I loved attending the Gatsby Conference this week. Never used it before, but after getting a crash course in what it can do, I’m ready to give it a shot. :)
