I’m a Software Engineer currently located in Madrid, Spain; who likes to mess with web technologies such as Ruby, Django or WordPress. Online I’m known because of being the producer of makigas, a YouTube channel with free programming tutorials.
It is too easy to star a project on GitHub, maybe because you consider it is a fun experiment or because it actually matters to you. However, keeping track about updates (say about repositories your project depends on), is harder. You can watch a repo, but then you’ll also be subscribed to all the clutter that sometimes issues and PRs cause.
Here is another quick one that is also easy to forget. One of the many uses of SSH is local and remote port forwarding. Using local port forwarding, you can set up a socket between a port in your local machine and your SSH server. Whenever a communication is established on that local port, it will be forwarded to the server and then, made. This has some interesting use cases, such as connecting to local services (web administration panels, databases…) or acting as a jump server or just a proxy server.
Rustup recently reached v1.0.0. Rustup is a toolchain installer and manager, allowing to install multiple toolchains: stable, beta, nightly, or a particular version. It is very easy and convenient instead of other solutions that rely on manually installing packages. It just became a core project of Rust as well. The download page at Rust website has been updated to reflect this. In fact, Multirust, a similar project for managing multiple Rust installations, is now deprecated.
I’ve been recently working on recovering posts from old blogs that were stored in my local backup, where they have been rotting for a lot of years. Those blog posts were made in WordPress and Blogger, and therefore had to be migrated into Jekyll.
Previously I told you about Racer, an autocompletion tool for Rust that integrates nicely into many other editors. Today I’d like to talk to you about how to configure Rust autocompletion in Vim using Racer and some plugins. Please note that you need
racer installed before proceeding. Check out that blog post if you need some help.
Hey, you made it far! There is even more blog posts in the Archives.
