belluzj/fantasque-sans: A font family with a great monospaced variant for programmers.

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/10/11

On my list of mono-spaced programmer fonts to try (and see how it compares to my beloved [WaybackLucida Console):

[Wayback] fantasque-sans – A font family with a great monospaced variant for programmers (yes I know it was called Comic Sans Neue Mono, but don’t extend your Comic Sans hatred there).

Source: [WaybackFantasque Sans Mono:

Fantasque Sans Mono: A programming font, designed with functionality in mind, and with some wibbly-wobbly handwriting-like fuzziness that makes it unassumingly cool. Development hosted on Github: [Wayback OFL (SIL Open Font License). Category: Monospaced

Via: Ein Font für Ruby on Rails-Entwickler: Comic Sans Neue Mono – Kristian Köhntopp – Google+

Another font on that list is [Wayback/] Hack where I have to do a bit work on fiddling with line spacing.

These are for my TODO:

Installing Python on Mac OS X — The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Python

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/10/11

Interesting, as I thought Mac OS X Yosemite and up – having Python installed – would also keep Python up-to-date, but they don’t.


Installing Python on Mac OS X

The latest version of Mac OS X, Yosemite, comes with Python 2.7 out of the box.

The version of Python that ships with OS X is great for learning but it’s not good for development. The version shipped with OS X may be out of date from the official current Python release, which is considered the stable production version.

  • Update: Reduced CPU usage on server when using a large number of time triggers.
  • Update: Reduced wait time between time triggers running simultaneously.
  • Update: Reduced CPU usage and throughput of stage queue.
  • Update: The >> operator is now implemented in repository rules. This is used to clean the destination folder before copying files. It is useful when a stage can run on the same agent as a previous stage as the agent workspace is not automatically cleared between stages.
    Note: We have also changed the default workspace and repository rules so that the >> operator is used for any server to agent rules in new stages. This is to ensure that the workspace is always cleared and are no surprises dependent on the agent the stage runs on. This can be changed to a single > to use the previous behaviour.
  • Update: Environment variables now expanded in all path type property collectors. This will for example allow you to use %HOME% to define the path to check when using a Path Access PlugIn property collector.
  • Update: Added descriptions and help information to property collector dialog fields.
  • Update: Queued stages are now prevented from starting in the few seconds after an agent has gone offline.
  • Fix: Issue where changes to user group membership were not picked up for several minutes unless the service was restarted.
  • Fix: Triggers were not being monitored after a disabled configuration was re-enabled.
  • Fix: Issue where agents with unlimited concurrent stages would not be selected to run stage.
