Posted by jpluimers on 2021/03/30

For my link archive: [WayBack] How to Convert a Mercurial Repository to Git on Windows.

Let’s see how this maps to MacOS or Linux…

showthedocs

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/02/18

[WayBack] showthedocs

is a documentation browser that finds the relevant docs for your code. It works by parsing the code and connecting parts of it to their explanation in the docs

, and supports these languages:

  • SQL
    • postgresql
    • mysql
  • Configuration
    • nginx
    • gitconfig

You can enter any language text, then click the language, followed by clicking the “SHOW ME THE DOCS!” button, for which an example is further below.

The site has an open architecture, allowing to plug in more languages and documentation:

 

gitconfig example

So for instance the below ./git/config file leads to this result [WayBack] where you can click on all the coloured areas for easy navigation through the documentation:

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):

[WayBack] Syncing your fork to the original repository via the browser · KirstieJane/STEMMRoleModels Wiki · GitHub
