    Project mention: Z-Wave Hub Advice | | 2022-10-01

    Home Assistant does all of this, but requires a fair amount of technical knowledge to set up and not want to pull your hair out. (Either that, or technical people kind of like that feeling of wanting to pull their hair out.) The software is free, and it can run on just about any hardware.

    I came here to say that, too! Thanks.

    (Prefer other types of tests whenever possible, but if you really do need drive-the-entire-browser E2E tests, use Playwright[1]. It's years ahead of Cypress.)

  • phantomjs

    Scriptable Headless Browser

    Project mention: How to make a SPA SEO crawlable? | | 2022-07-11

    I've been working on how to make a SPA crawlable by google based on google's instructions. Even though there are quite a few general explanations I couldn't find anywhere a more thorough step-by-step tutorial with actual examples. After having finished this I would like to share my solution so that others may also make use of it and possibly improve it further. I am using MVC with Webapi controllers, and Phantomjs on the server side, and Durandal on the client side with push-state enabled; I also use Breezejs for client-server data interaction, all of which I strongly recommend, but I'll try to give a general enough explanation that will also help people using other platforms.

  • semantic-release

    Project mention: Git "autofixup" | | 2022-09-15

    Project mention: Engaging and interesting decks are getting obscenely expensive | | 2022-08-12

    So what u need to do is go to a mercs bounty and afk inside it for 29 mins, then finish the fight by beating it and repeat. U will get more than 400 xp per hour with 20% boost (i think around 430? smth like that). If u go over 30 mins in the fight, u will get 0 xp so don't. Put the script on a loop and leave ur pc overnight, set hs fps to like 5 or smth from the config file (targetframerate), so ur pc uses little resources (the more gpu/cpu used the more wattage the higher the electricity bill, tho obviously it's still very worth it but the less the bill is the better). Level 100 to 400 is 300 * 1500 xp = 450 000 xp. With 10 hrs of ur pc working during the night, that is let's say 4100 xp per day, so it will take u 110 days to get from level 100 to 400. If u have work, leaving the pc on for let's say 16 hours a day (8 while u sleep and 8 while u work) will get u 7560 xp per day, getting u from 100 to level 400 in just 60 days (2 months). Make sure ur cpu gpu etc. are put on power-saving mode and turn off ur monitor (preferably even disconnect it from the power cable). Now for the script u wanna use, based on this the best one would be C, personally i use Javascript because it's what i know and it's very easy to write and it's still 4.45 which is not that far from 1, considering it's just very simple mouse movement and a for loop and not some complex algorithm problems like in the article, it won't make much of a difference anyway, tho it might if u use python since 75.88 is a lot. So to do it with JS, u can use Node js with Robot js

  • Prefect

    The easiest way to build, run, and monitor data pipelines at scale.

    Project mention: I have developed a simple Task Orchestrator | | 2022-09-24

    However, if you are looking for something like this, but much more mature and something of a bloat to be frank, there's Prefect. Honestly, woflo borrows a lot from Prefect conceptually.

  • Detox
