Fuzzy File Finding (and warm fuzzy feelings)

While my day job is managing a team of 8 engineers (which means a lot of meetings), I do get to work with the CLI from time to time. As you might know, working on the CLI means navigating deep dirctory structures and working with millions of files. It doesn’t matter if you are into operations or into development, working with directories and files are going to be your bread and butter operations. ...

The Forest of Unending Warmth

Travis checks Chaschper

One of these “ohh - that’s a nice idea, I should totally also implement that” ideas. I stumbled upon the Dream Plus Hugo theme, that included a little badge that linked to a Travis CI build status. Using CI (Continous Integration) to check the sanity of the template seemed like a good thing to me, so I looked around on how various people do this. I found one template by Vicky Lai that included HTML checking. ...
