I recently purchased a MacBook Air in September for my birthday. One of the first things I noticed was that the operating system doesn’t show the ~/Library directory. It keeps annoying me, so after some researching I found the Terminal command to show hidden files. I put them into my aliases in my .zshrc which can be found in my fork of the Oh My Zsh! GitHub repository, but also posted them here for convenience.
These commands will either show/hide the hidden files and then relaunch Finder.app to show the changes.
alias show_hidden='defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles YES && killall Finder && open /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app' alias hide_hidden='defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles NO && killall Finder && open /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app'
I’ve been promising this for a while but with regular life and headaches taking over my free time… I have been less than productive. But fear not! I DO have an update. I think I basically have the first version of the “Blogenning” software I’ve been talking so much about right now.
For the time being it will be hosted at http://blogenning.rachelober.com/. Not to be self-serving, but it is easiest for me to update it. I spoke with Brandon and we both thought that if it worked well enough we could each chip in a buck and buy ourselves a proper domain to house the insanity.
- User login and administration
- Add “rounds”, “entries” for rounds, and “users” for entries
- Main page lists the rounds starting from most recent to oldest entries
On the to do list:
- Registering and password retrieval
- “Special” statuses for “trend setters” and “bastards” (these are inside-jokes for people NOT in the Blogenning)
- API stuff so that a plugin for WordPress and Drupal can add rounds and entries
- User account stuff so you guys can change your password
Also, if you know ruby on rails or want to get in on designing the beast (I refuse to do any complicated CSS for this at this point *looks at Jaco and hopes his artistic sense may help with this one*)… you can join our GitHub site and ask to be put on the development team so you can have some input. Yay!
For the time being only my entries are entered into the database so you’re going to have to add your own damn entries because I’m much too lazy to do everyone’s. Once I get password retrieval working on the site, I have all of your user accounts made, so then you can just do a password retrieval and your password will be emailed to you.
