Recursive Rabbit hole - Photos

Still recursively diving down yet another Rabbit holes. Note: This is actually the third (or more) recursive rabbit hole, but will be the first to be posted as it is a smaller post.

It is actually quite fun finding black and white photos to use for posts. It is a good thing have library of 300.000 photos to dig in to, and I have made a mental note (and now also on the blog) to shoot a bit more stock photos for the blog.

Hmm 1 Twitter IFTTT RSS

I need to figure out how to get my posts posted to twitter. Maybe Just a IFTTT action? Argh another Rabbit hole.

Hmm 1 ad. 1

So, I did set up Jekyll RSS Feed which was amazingly simple. Add a template file and a few lines in the config file. IFTTT has been set up to post to twitter, and this is the first post after that to test it.

Hmm 2 Out of Order

I guess I’m going to poste these posts either in reverse order or schedule the posts for future, as some of the posts are quickly done (like this one), while the original Tracker poste is much more involved.

Hmm 3 Splelling

I need a spellchecker for Visual Studio Code. While looking for a spellchecker I found the markdown visualization which is quite awesome:

Hmm 3 ad. 1 Markdown preview

VS Code supports Markdown files out of the box. You just start writing Markdown text, save the file with the .md extension and then you can toggle the visualization of the editor between the code and the preview of the Markdown file; obviously, you can also open an existing Markdown file and start working with it. To switch between views, press Ctrl+Shift+V in the editor. You can view the preview side-by-side (Ctrl+K V) with the file you are editing and see changes reflected in real-time as you edit.

Hmm3 ad. 2 Spelling

So there is an extension for VS Code which is called Code Spell Checker which can spell check markdown and code files. It works like a charm.

Hmm 4

I should link to my portfolio site

Hmm 5 TODO

It would be quite interesting if I could write a task for my self here on the blog, and get a task created. I have marked a (recursive) TODO on adding TODO.

  • Post to Twitter
  • Spellchecking
  • Add link to portfolio site
  • Add link to flickr
  • Gather TODO items

Hmm 6

I’m really dating myself here, but I remember a project I did once with a product called Apache Cocoon in the early days of XML. At the time i used Cocoon for rendering webpages (Running on tomcat). Jekyll in some way actually reminds me of that. I’m not sure it is a good thing.
