Any podcasts with great audio quality similar to Cautionary Tales by Tim Harford, Hidden Brain by Shankar Vedantam?
The Peter Attia Drive, but is the audio quality an important factor for listening to certain podcasts?
What colorscheme do you use with your code editor, dark or a light one?
Solarized Dark is my favorite theme.
Dark everywhere, i use Dracula because it supports so many apps: draculatheme.com
Light bad, dark good.
Midnight Blue is my favorite
I made my own it's called AposTheme. Check it out: marketplace.visual... Every time I use a different editor, I remake the theme.
One Dark or One Dark Pro and JetBrains Mono
I let pywal do it's magic.
Brogrammer, because it's vibrant and I love contrast. I use the scheme everywhere
xterm, except I set the foreground to amber (can't remember the hexcode off the top of my head) and the background to 000000h
Dark. Night Owl.
Javascript or Typescript?
Elm :D
JS
Although I don't do much with TS I'd guess that it's just easier to work with for larger projects due to the strong typing. I'm wanting to learn how to correctly migrate projects to it...svelte just released official support for TS so I may try migrating my blog (using sapper) to it
TypeScript, but without turning on "strict mode" from the start. Explore it and use it as the superset of JavaScript that it is and slowly opt in with its best features as you go.
Either as long as they are Progressive Web Apps?
What do you use for task management, personal and professional? How do you go about it? Would you walk me through the process?
I use a mix of a couple things. Discord, GitHub Issues / Projects, Google Calendar, Joplin. Discord is nice to organize tasks with other people. GitHub Issues allow you to write detailed notes about a problem. GitHub Projects gives you a Kanban board. Google Calendar lets you setup daily reminders and mark incoming events. Joplin lets you take raw notes and organize your thoughts.
What chrome extensions/firefox extensions do you use?
ublock origin is all I need
chrome extensions on brave: gmail, nordvpn, nordpass
firefox: ublock origin, dark reader, bypass paywalls clean, vimium
I have a number installed in Firefox, which is probably a bad habit: Wayback Machine, User Agent Switcher, Tampermonkey, ClearURLs, Hoxx VPN, WebRTC Leak Shield, uBlock Origin, Dark Reader, SponsorBlock, Lastpass, unPaywall, Downloader for Tiktok, MEGA, SingleFile, and Download Picture from Instagram. I do use all of them though. I have more but they're so numerous I couldn't go through them all in one comment.
uBlock Origin and uMatrix, chromium. The WWW is much more pleasant. "Inspect element" is also underrated for fixing fonts or deleting pop-ups and notifications and e-stalking social media without an account (cough Instagram).
I can recommend: Workona, Lastpass, Honey, Stylish (for a custom Jira dark mode I've made), JSON Formatter, Save to Pocket, uBlock Origin
On Firefox I have these: app.telemetry page speed monitor, multi-account containers, h264fy, max tabs, order tabs by domain. I use macOS Light theme which I created: addons.mozilla.org....
What tools do you use to protect your online privacy? I use dnscrypt-proxy, hosts file, firefox, Signal. Is mullvad the best vpn? I don't use any at the moment.
hello fellow Americans, why is your food industry so devilish? Propagating lies. Mostly. It's coming to India too. But here, average people eat home-cooked meals. So, I think, it won't affect as much. Last but not the least, why don't you guys eat home-cooked meals? Although this might have changed in the current scenario.
Tea or Coffee?
Who is loving this small community, what are your suggestions? Mine, please add polls.
Could there be an ASCII only poll? That way the "ASCII" only aspect could be maintained and polling added.
The client is delaying the last payment unnecessarily. After, multiple request, no replay. Zilch. Nada. What do you do? Add a simple wait function multiplied by number of days to slow the web app down. I won't advise this when client is really in bad situation but you just know when to use this. Works every single time. Have you done anything similar on these lines? Tell me you story.
There is a story, where a high scholarly human asks, Goddes of wealth, how can a dumbo have such amount of wealth, and I do not? She answers, because of your knowledge, you get respect even if you don't own anything. But, for a dumbo, wealth is the only means to get respect from others. What do you prefer? Knowledge or wealth? In what percentage?
What communities are you active mostly on?
tildes.net, discord, reddit mostly.
discord, and I (mostly) lurk tildes and a few smaller subreddits
Discord, HN, Lobsters
Who else has started meditating in these turbulent times?
Try to type a smart quote, it replaced with a dumb one. Isn't it?
Do you agree with how 'Andrew Carnegie' ran his companies?
What do you recommend, Vim, Sublime Text or VS Code for a newbie? I used to recommed VS Code, but everyone I recommend complained about, how slow it was than Sublime Text.
vs code hands down, and atom otherwise. if you're new, you don't need to be dropping $$ for a text editor imo. VIM after that.
I still like VS Code, to be honest, though I haven't used ST for a while so perhaps I don't remember/know how much faster ST is?
`VS Code` to run a project. `Vim` plugin in `VS Code` to edit text.
my company made us migrate from atom to vscode. it was a pain at first but vscode is so well thought-out and has microsoft's resources behind it. everything "just works" and it's great. i haven't had any speed issues
VS Code is great. Learning curve for vim is probably too steep unless you have a compelling reason to use it - e.g. you are SSH'ing into a lot of servers and needing to edit files.
I think it's definitely worth learning vim just for the key bindings. It speeds up your workflow so much once you're past the learning curve, and most editors (e.g. Sublime, VSCode, Jetbrains) support vim bindings out-of-the-box or with an official plugin.
Everyone should learn Vi(m) but it's not suitable for most to use it as their main IDE. Vi(m) is available on pretty much any system so it's great to know the basics for doing changes on servers etc. I use it as my main IDE in my profession but most people tend to stick to VSCode for example.
Vim is a disease. Once you learn it well enough, it's all you can use
Sublime for general development, vim for times when you need to fix things on live production servers .
I've been using Code (The Open Source build of Visual Studio Code editor), and I'm quite pleased with it. But I have a fairly recent and decent computer, which means that maybe I'm blindsighted to some of VSCode's resource hungry limitations...
Vs code is great, once you get used to that debugger, it would be hard to use anything else. I have started using sublime though, because I purchased a license recently. So I've decided to use it no matter what, to get my money's worth
Vs code was build by electron js, so it's just nothing but your chrome browser tab, with extra features, sometimes it lags on low power RAM system. By adding more extension and watching files changes, quite RAM aggressive, sublime otherwise it's written in C, with less fancy features, suitable for basic, answer for your question fully depend on your working environment, if you are normal web dev sublime is reasonable choice
If you want to *really* learn to code, pick a simple text editor. The only way to learn is to write your code yourself, not using the automated help of an IDE. IDEs are also slow and clumsy. If your code editor requires you to use the mouse, you're off to a bad start as a professional programmer.
If you prefer a graphical editor, Onivim is worth checking out.
vim for speed, vscode for functionality
Depends on what is your goal. Vim is great if you are going to work on servers (system administration) - pretty much every UNIX derivate have a version on vi by default. For programming - VS Code - modern IDE, good support, frequent updates. Sublime is an editor, while VS code is an IDE, so comparison is not very fare. Atom... better stay away - wrapper around Chrome, making it looks like an editor...
I highly recommend VS Code, vim, and gedit for beginners. I love Sublime, but it's definitely not worth the price if this isn't something you're going to be doing long term.
vs code. Felt nothing slow. Extensions are so good.
You might want to specialize e.g., WebStorm if you're primarily doing frontend stuff. Worth it for the extra functionality. I use multiple IDEs (and Vim) depending on what work I'm doing. Vim is great because it exists everywhere and makes quick work of short editing tasks -- stuff you're likely to do on a new system.
VIM. Time invested well.
If JetBrains has IDE for your language, try it - I used VS Code for years before trying PyCharm and I feel like I missed my years. So much better, so much faster that it blew my mind
