Do you watch a lot of movies or TV Shows? Do you have a WordPress site? You will love Traktivity!
This plugin allows you to log everything you watch inside your WordPress site. You may then use that data for anything you want.
You could display the last few shows you watched in a widget in your sidebar, you could automatically post on Facebook or Twitter whenever you are watching something, or you could just keep that data to find out more about the genres you watch the most, or how many hours you spent in front of the TV last month or last year.
Most importantly, that data is yours, saved in your WordPress site for good.
I’ve used image sharing software for the past 5 years: CloudApp, Cloudup, Droplr, I tried them all. Those apps are great to quickly share screenshots, annotated images, gifs, or even screencasts with users. Sometimes, an image is worth a thousand words. :)
It’s the little things. So far, switching from Mac to Ubuntu has been relatively painless; most of the apps I use every day are cross-platform. There is, however, one thing that’s been bugging me a lot: Ctrl.
One of the things that bothered me when I switched to Ubuntu was the mouse: while the Mouse settings panel offered options to change the cursor speed, I couldn’t change the scroll wheel settings: I wanted it to be faster, and I wanted it to use Mac OS’ natural scrolling direction.
Unison is a great little tool to synchronize files between your local machine and a remote server. It’s free, open-source, and cross-platform. I use it every day to develop Jetpack. However, until very recently I couldn’t use it to work with files on this very site. I’m hosted with Webfaction, a great hosting provider for developers who want flexibility without having to deal with server administration. A lot of packages are already installed and configured on my server for me. Unison is not available by default, so I had to install it myself. Luckily, Webfaction lets you do that!
I’m very careful with the things I install on my computer, and the extensions I used in Google Chrome, my browser of choice.
If you use that extension, you’ll want to deactivate it right now!
I’m now back to using the Network tab of the Developer tools for that kind of work, unless some of you know of a good extension I could use?
I upgraded to macOS Sierra this weekend. The upgrade was mostly painless; I only had to switch from Karabiner to Karabiner Elements to customize my keyboard.
But when trying to update my remote development environment this morning, I ran into the first issue: ssh-agent didn’t seem to work anymore. My keys were not added to my keychain when accessing my remote sandbox with ssh -A mysandbox.
After a bit of googling, I found my answer. To fix the issue, and make sure I could use my keys even when connected to a remote sandbox, I added the following to my .ssh/config file:
