Some experience of htmlpreview.github.io as a replacement for rawgit.com

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/12/01

With [Wayback/Archive] rawgit.com having sunset years ago, but still having a [Wayback/Archive] few links to it from my blog, it was time to take a closer look at the alternative [Wayback/Archive] htmlpreview.github.io.

First of all, htmlpreview needs more examples. I might submit a pull request for it later, as it is open source at [Archive/Archive] htmlpreview/htmlpreview.github.com: HTML Preview for GitHub Repositories.

Second, some actual example URLs, based on content I previously accessed through rawgit.com.

Git Explorer: a cool tool to visually learn git commands

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/03/03

This is sooooo cool: [Wayback] Git Explorer

GitExplorer: Find the right git commands you need without digging through the web

What I like is the simple clean UI with a two step selection of what git functionality you want to use followed by a simple usage and explanation.

Very well suites for both referencing and interactive learning.

Bonus: it is open source at [Wayback/Archive.is] summitech/gitexplorer: Find the right git commands without digging through the web..

A choco install list

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/02/03

Sometimes I forget the choco install mnemonics for various tools, so here is a small list below.

Of course you have to start with an administrative command prompt, and have a basic Chocolatey Installation in place.

If you want to clean cruft:

choco install --yes choco-cleaner

Basic install:

choco install --yes 7zip
choco install --yes everything
choco install --yes notepadplusplus
choco install --yes beyondcompare
choco install --yes git.install --params "/GitAndUnixToolsOnPath /NoGitLfs /SChannel /NoAutoCrlf /WindowsTerminal"
choco install --yes hg
choco install --yes sourcetree
choco install --yes sysinternals

For VMs (pic one):

choco install --yes vmware-tools
choco install --yes virtio-drivers

For browsing (not sure yet about Chrome as that one has a non-admin installer as well):

choco install --yes firefox

For file transfer (though be aware that some versions of Filezilla contained adware):

choco install --yes filezilla
choco install --yes winscp

For coding:

choco install --yes vscode
choco install --yes atom

For SQL server:

choco install --yes sql-server-management-studio

For web development / power user:

choco install --yes fiddler

For SOAP and REST:

choco install --yes soapui

If you don’t like manually downloading SequoiaView at gist.github.com/jpluimers/b0df9c2dba49010454ca6df406bc5f3d (e8efd031d667de8a1808d6ea73548d77949e7864.zip):

choco install --yes windirstat

For drawing, image manipulation (paint.net last, as it needs a UI action):

choco install --yes gimp
choco install --yes imagemagick
choco install --yes paint.net

For ISO image mounting in pre Windows 10:

choco install --yes wincdemu

For hard disk management:

choco install --yes hdtune
choco install --yes seatools
choco install --yes speedfan

For Fujitsu ScanSnap scanners (not sure yet this includes PDF support):

choco install --yes scansnapmanager

PlasticSCM memories

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/12/23

Spending most of your career as an independent contractor, you bump into a lot of toolchains.

Part of those toolchains usually involved (and by now surely should involve) version control for both development and infrastructure configuration management.

I remember PlasticSCM quite well.

The really good part is the branch overview (called Branch Explorer) in the PlasticSCM UI, as it is:

They also have frequent updates, which however are hard to discover because there is no built-in update mechanism that notifies you of them.

Those updates are badly needed, because I kept bumping into bugs. Which is odd, because I bumped into far less issues when using UI layers for SVN, TFS, Mercurial and git (SourceTree being a major exception, but they seem to have recovered from a long period of bad versions a few years back).

So here are some of my gripes, that might have been fixed by now.

Comparing versions with wildcards and without them (for instance for semantic versioning)

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/08/12

For a project I’m going to be in need to compare version numbers.

I’m not sure yet if I need wildcards, or can leave them out (but for partial semantic versioning, I might need them).

Below a bunch of links that should get me started.

From a quick glance: versioning is hard, comparing even harder.

On versioning in general

Numeric versioning (usually without wildcards):

On semantic versioning (SemVer for short):

On the C# Version class (which handles most of semantic versioning except: leading zero’s, very large numbers, non-numeric release specifiers)

Interesting idea, but not sustainable: using floating point values to compare versions:

On wildcards:

Via: [WayBack] Anyone tips for a TVersion structure that supports at max quad digits or wildcards and comparison? Like 3.2 matching 3.2.5.7, but not matching 3.3.4.28 ? – Jeroen Wiert Pluimers – Google+
