Collection of tweaks that I gathered after installing Arch Linux on to Lenovo IdeaPAd Y700.
Couple of tips from my experience of running Arch on Macbook 8.2.
This is a small post on how to improve your ClojureScript development flow in NeoVim using its terminal feature.
Some time ago I actually did run
ln -sf /usr/bin/emacs /usr/bin/vim.
And left it like that for a couple of days.
I must say that it was surprisingly nice experience.
Tinkering around with elisp, building editing environment from scratch.
Of course interesting question is “How did I end up with this idea in my head?”.
Grenchman is a small tool that runs leiningen tasks over nrepl. Helps with JVM startup time during development. Build in OCaml. If you are not in to the building binary on your own, there are pre-build binaries on the official website.
And here is one missing binary for OpenSUSE (tested on 13.1, fedora binary does not work).

Small code snippet showing ability to generate 2 way data bindings in Reagent. Underneath it’s all about core.async. Also provides ability to apply transformation using transducers.

We all hate shell scripting. Scripts are annoyingly hard to debug, test and verify. Would be lovely, to use some kind of lisp for scripting, right? To do interactive development with repl in your favorite editor. To write it in a nice predictable language that you also enjoy. But sometimes it’s impossible to add some external dependencies to the system. What if you have only JVM to your disposal, will you be able to pull it off only with JVM and clojure.jar?
Small announcement post.
Today I launched tiny scotty server that serves json for Hacker News front page. Project source code is located on github. You can access api here.
Hacker news parser is implemented using HXT and HandsomeSoup. Json is served with help of Scotty web framework. Currently it’s running on Heroku using this ghc-7.8 buildpack.
I don’t use RSS since I’m also interested in points and amount of comments. For me HN is more about interesting links than community and conversations behind the posts. So I don’t really care about anything except front page.
Originally I started this project as a Haskell learning exercise. I hope someone will find it useful.
Very small post (more like insruction for myself for the future) on how to convert deb packages provided by Spotify to rpm. Solution can be applied to any rpm based system (I think so).
- Install alien (perl scripts for converting packages).
- Download deb from spotify repository, pay attention to architecture.
- Convert deb -> rpm by running
sudo alien --scripts -r spotify*.deb.
- Install rpm
sudo zypper in spotify*.rpm.
And it should work. I noticed few warning about default locates and missing libraries, but client still works fine without any changes to system (symlinks, locales and etc).
If you have issues with volume being too loud by default make sure that you changed
People reported that installing version 0.9 -> uninstalling it -> installing version 1.0 might break your system. So watch out for the uninstallation errors.
