  • Units CLI Question
  • To people who have tons of shell scripts and aliases, how do you organize/categorize them?
    Took me several years of forgetting script names before I finally just made a README of filenames and descriptions that I can search when I forget. I didn't want some complicated organization framework.
  • Is there any shortcoming on having a seamless navigation between vim and tmux? | 2021-05-28
    I ran a (mostly) vim-tmux-navigator setup for almost a year but ultimately removed it. It was indeed a seamless way to quickly jump between Vim and tmux panes but I felt it enabled learning some sloppy habits on my part.
  • Autoident drives me nuts. Even when I supposedly turned it off it still does 4 spaces in some places and 2 in others. How do I completely turn this thing off? | 2021-02-25
    I added filetype indent off so that indent plugins for the various languages would not automatically execute, and then I set smartindent so that regardless of what kind of file I'm editing it (very!) simply just re-uses the same indent from the previous line. For everything else I just manually ctrl-t/ctrl-d as I type.
