@quaylessed Malaysia, which skews towards the slightly conservative side, although they're flexible on a whole lot of rules besides closing hours (especially the road rules 😉)
@magthe 😅 I do this, when I need to fix something and be certain it's "safe" for deployment. I think of it like surgery, or analogous to a "surgical strike": in, out, with as little collateral damage as possible 😉
After personal experience trying to find suitable #FOSS apps, I wonder: what apps do other people wish existed, but don't? Maybe @firstname.lastname@example.org has some insight (😉)?
@natharari @email@example.com 😅 I sympathise - I do. I've tried a great many editors of the years, although admittedly never emacs. I'm comfortable in Vim, and that's good enough for me.
What usually gets me is the joke that "Linux is a platform for running emacs" / the idea that emacs is practically a small OS - that's the *opposite* of what I want from my editor 😉
Small, light, minimal. I still `grep` my codebases for example, rather than using a plugin 😋
@art its awesome, but just watch the fine print.
I once tested Ansible scripts for spinning up a multi-node Hadoop cluster on #DigitalOcean, but didn't realise the minimum billing increment was an hour. I racked up a USD$600 bill in a few days 😅
They very kindly cut the bill significantly when I explained, but still... 😋
@firstname.lastname@example.org I have a couple of plugins, mostly just linters and EditorConfig.
My argument is that I work with a *lot* of servers (work and personal). If I can use unmodified #vim, I can use vi. And vi is almost always installed, even on a brand new server.
However, if you only work with one or two Linux installs, stick with whatever you're comfortable with 🙃
Bit of a bad day with #ReactNative; after multiple releases to get on top of the new requirements by Google (target SDK 28, support 64-bit), hit an issue that broke the app on all pre-Pie versions of Android
PackageInfo.versionCode is deprecated, so it won't build. Use the new version, and it won't run on pre-Pie versions. There's a compatibility package, but to use _that_ you have to update your app to use AndroidX and install Jetifier to hot-patch your node_modules... 😩
Works now. Need 🍺
@cloudflarelink definitely add me to that blacklist for no replies plz 😉
Now that we have our collective, bank account and donation system setup, we're also investigating alternative #funding options.
Nobody in our team seem to have experience with grants/sponsorships, so if you have experience with these, or know some grants/organizations we should look into, would you mind getting in touch?
(No forum topic listed, this is currently an internal team discussion)
Thank you very much, #BoostsAppreciated!
@carbontwelve we have some of these in our codebases, except we use variations of TODO, HACK, WITCHCRAFT ALERT, and probably some others (they do have distinct meanings as well 😅)
