Getting rid of trailing line-endings in the web interface

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/03

One of the things that bugged me for a long time is that every now and then for some shapes, when editing their text, the web interface puts in trailing line feeds after the text, messing up layout.

The easiest way to work around it is by searching inside the diagram XML for
, then replacing that with a ".

(the above code got screwed by saving it, so the search is in this small gist below)

This behaviour is intermittent on the drawio MacOS desktop app.

Calendar Link ParametersTeamup Calendar

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/09/03

A while back, I needed to show the Teamup Calendar for my marching band at a specific date.

Luckily I found [Archive.isCalendar Link ParametersTeamup Calendar allowing me to assemble such link:

Which shows at the end of the month, we are going to perform on Tattoo on Stage in Luzern (Lucerne), Switzerland in the famous KKL concert hall:

Home – Outpan – GTIN to product attribute mapping

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/04/26

On my research list: Home – Outpan as it is a key-value store of EAN (actually GTIN, so including GS1 UPC, EAN which means barcodes like UPC-12, EAN-8, EAN-13 and ITF-14).

New steps for Slack on Twitter: “@thorduri 😣 You can always disable emoji conversion in Preferences > Emoji > Convert my typed emoticons to emoji. 👍”

After: @thorduri You can always disable emoji conversion in Preferences > Emoji > Convert my typed emoticons to emoji. [WayBack]

We live in the form-over-function era [WayBack], so of course this setting is not reachable by URL, only reachable by using these steps:

It was fun while it lasted: Barracuda Copy – Copy End-of-Life

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/02/05

Copy had some advantages and disadvantages. For instance, it was better handling long file names, character encodings in filenames and a lot easier to configure over a CNTLM proxy than DropBox, but unlike DropBox didn’t keep history of changes.

Alas no more as of 20160501: [WayBack] Barracuda Copy – Copy End-of-Life.

They suggest using [WayBackMover with OneDrive as target: [WayBackBarracuda Copy – Moving Your Data from Copy

Note that Mover has many more connectors, including cloud storage ones (Box, Copy, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and Yandex.Disk are free):

[WayBack] Connectors • Mover: FTP, Dropbox, Box, GoogleDrive, Copy, Egnyte, Amazon S3, SharePoint, MySQL the list goes on!

For me it means it’s time to think about what kinds of cloud storage I want to use and how to share what data with others at which access level. As I’m already contemplating on how to use ZFS, I now have two storage concepts to think about.
