A dream of an ultimate OS

  • Nevertheless, the user often has to apply different and completely disparate commands to achieve exactly the same modification, for example, to delete an item (line) from a list as in: removing a line in a text document, removing a file, killing a process (that is, removing it from the list of active processes) or canceling a print job.
  • Many applications -- for example, printer and network managers, an FTP utility or a newsreader -- will be easier to develop and use if one can tell the Finder: "here, this is a list of files, manage it as you usually do with a list of files, just tell me when you are about to trash something." Rearranging file icons within a folder view and rearranging paragraphs within a document are essentially the same activity.

The OnePlus TV is coming in September, but maybe not to you

  • The OnePlus TV is coming next month, founder Pete Lau revealed today — just one year after the phonemaker first announced it would build a TV set.
  • While Lau’s blog post doesn’t confirm any juicy technical details, such as whether they’ll run Android TV and range between 43 and 75 inches diagonally — as filings with the Bluetooth SIG revealed earlier this month — he does say the TV will first be available exclusively in India, and it sure sounds like it could take some time to hit other parts of the world.
  • Based on previous filings, the OnePlus TV for India is likely to have a 43-inch panel, while we can probably expect a 75-inch model in the US and China.
  • While OnePlus has the reputation of a startup and building TVs might seem...ambitious...it’s worth remembering that OnePlus is an arm of the same BBK Electronics that also owns Oppo and Vivo.

Netflix’s TV app can now remind you when new shows are released

  • Netflix doesn’t want people to forget about shows they plan to watch in the future.
  • The company is updating its TV app with a “Latest” section that’ll list movies and TV show seasons that’ll be released that week and the one following, according to Variety.
  • Listed titles will have a trailer, and users can ask to be reminded when a program they want to watch becomes available, meaning people will likely receive a notification when they open the app.
  • The feature is similar to the “coming soon” section that’s already available on the company’s Android app.
  • Up until now, though, most people likely relied on the “new releases” or “trending now” suggestions on Netflix.
  • They also might have read articles about what was coming to Netflix in the next month to figure out what they wanted to watch.
  • Command Line delivers daily updates from the near-future.

Document your Javascript code with JSDoc

  • In this post I'll try to cover everything you need to know to get started with JSDoc. I'll also share with you some other cool stuff I learned about it that you might find useful.
  • Once your code is fully documented you can easily generate a website containing all the API documentation by running a simple command.
  • Now, to be honest, even though I've been using JSDoc comments to document my code for a long time, I didn't install this package until a few weeks ago because I didn't actually needed to generate the website.
  • Simply call jsdoc and add the path to the file or folder.
  • You can create your own template for your API documentation by generating a custom layout.tmpl file and setting the option templates.default.layoutFile to the path of your custom layout in your JSDoc configuration file.

#showdevHow to set up a fresh Ubuntu desktop using only dotfiles and bash scripts

  • Tom seems to like to script things, and some of those things include automatically setting up symlinks, and installing Ubuntu repository applications and other programs.
  • This post will cover how to achieve the automatic set up of a computer running Ubuntu Desktop (in my case, Ubuntu LTS 18.04) using bash scripts.
  • The bash scripts cover three main areas: linking dotfiles, installing software from Ubuntu and elsewhere, and setting up the desktop environment.
  • If a program we’d like doesn’t appear in the default repositories or doesn’t seem to have a PPA, we may still be able to install it via command line.
  • For some inspiration, you can view my desktop.sh settings script on GitHub. Having modular scripts (one for symlinks, two for installing programs, another for desktop settings) is useful for both keeping things organized and for being able to run some but not all of the automated set up.

#showdev9 Webstorm Productivity Tips

  • It has many useful features to make our lives easier, all of them aiming to automate the repetitive parts of coding.
  • The difference is not in my typing speed, but how much I know about the tool I use.
  • Searching for text in project files is a common feature in most IDEs, but searching for other things like actions in the menu bar or declarations are rare in other editors.
  • The best thing is that you can search for files, menu actions, and declarations with a single command: just double press the Shift button and start searching everywhere.
  • A third multiple-cursor use-case is when we select all the occurrences of the selected text (Edit > Find > Select All Accourences) and the typing/deletion happens everywhere.
  • The promoter is a great way to learn the shortcuts for the things you use, but what about those you don't know?
