The Exciting Conclusion of: BeeMinute

Finally a follow-up article with the missing code from my earlier story, BeeMinute. If you are inclined toward GitHub pages or if otherwise you want, just skip to the code in yebyen/BeeMinute.

I haven't had much time to write a serious wall of text to go with the code in the article, but the code seems complete enough to deploy from at the moment. Read more for the rest of the story of that code.

BeeMinute

I'm finally going to try and exercise the code highlighting feature of Markdown in Wheat! Get ready... here goes:

#!/usr/bin/env bash
BE
='bundle exec'
RU
='rvm'

RVM_ENVIR
=/home/yousir/.rvm/scripts/rvm
RUBY_VERS
=2.0.0

   API
="https://www.beeminder.com/api/v1"
  JSON
="goals/20-minutes/datapoints.json"
  TOKEN
="auth_token=Beeminder_API_Secret"
curl
-s "$API/users/yebyenw/$JSON?$TOKEN" > 20-minutes.json

 
.  $RVM_ENVIR
$RU $RUBY_VERS
 
./20graph.rb

The README file above is an executable (bash script), meant to be run by cron job. It runs curl and a ruby script, instead of any ruby HTTP library. Much easier than adding Rails. It serves a small purpose and has few dependencies. Just reading a JSON file and parsing its data. My JSON is already up to 64k.

URLminder Fork

Mohela, Mint, Beeminute, Credit Cards, Student Loan, Email; all of these consume my attention for a minimum of 10 minutes a day, lacking a team of robots to keep track and bring me those important regular status reports.

I'll build on the Rails project distributed via Beeminder's GitHub, URLminder, which is used to track the number of words on this very page. My repo is YebMinder.

Urbit/Docker Tool

Normal behavior when running vere on an already active pier is to bring down the ships of the running vere and start again at its last saved checkpoint.

When re-running an (old, stopped) image in docker of an active (running) pier or ship, you could encounter problems since the serial of the arvo checkpoints in the old image is (potentially) behind the latest serial of the running pier.

Code Completion with Vim

This article is about code-completion with go, vim, YouCompleteMe, and alternatives. (The alternatives are, so far, just for go. YCM is for many languages.)

Haiku Stuff

Haiku is really great, and I have some links I didn't want to lose! There are apparently VirtualBox Guest additions for Haiku. I haven't been able to get them to work, but here's the thread:
