Emacs Mode for Flow Type Annotations and React JSX syntax

While I have been focusing on writing more about existing tools and how to use them, like Elm for frontend web development and Perl 6 just for fun, I still find a need to create new tools and update my own toolkit. I’m working on a React project and itRead More

org-doing spotted in the wild!

Someone posted a nice blog about org-doing: http://rubikitch.com/2015/06/26/org-doing/ It’s neat, they provided their own example.

Getting organized with ZenDone :-)

I think I may have found a good GTD mobile app which also works well on the web. It’s called ZenDone and it integrates with Evernote and Google Calendar. I usually use Emacs and org-mode but it’s been hard to get that working with mobile and across devices. With org-modeRead More

StackOverflow Search (SOS) mode for Emacs

StackOverflow Search (SOS) mode for Emacs I was reading about a PhD student who created a plugin for an IDE that integrates searching for questions & answers on a knowledge base that included an easy way to insert code snippets from the answers in their own source code. I useRead More

some code for running PHPunit in Emacs

I’m working on a legacy PHP app for a client and up until today I was running unit tests in a terminal window. But my natural working enviornment so why not write something that will execute the unit tests and display the results in an Emacs buffer? The following isRead More

Making Emacs Work For Me
