    1. There's a void — a need where a word should fit. There's a construction — a prefix and a root, which fit together to fill the void. Meaning is clear on first encounter. A need is met. What is the problem?

    1. Empower doesn't allow you to import legacy data from other sources (like Mint) or input manual transactions such as cash. The latter isn't important to me, but the former certainly is. I have 16 years of transaction data in Mint that I want to preserve.
    1. You can’t split anything, so that charge at the gas station is all gas, even if you spent a little in the food mart.

    1. As you've seen, there is no DM system, but you can invite users to chat directly. More generally, consider commenting on the question itself and @-ing the user who made the edit(s). To my understanding, this should work, and it may allow for a quick explanation that doesn't require going in to chat.

      I think commenting in the context of question is better than a DM, though I don't always like making my question "messy" by having a bunch of comments under it... but maybe that is the best way.

    1. What is more lacking, however, are approaches to transformation that can be applied in and adapted to multiple (and necessarily unique) contexts

      for - key insight - movement of movements - What's missing - transformation catalyst - indyweb / Indranet

      • What is more lacking, however,
      • are approaches to transformation
      • that can be applied in and adapted to
      • multiple (and necessarily unique) contexts
      • to provide a framework for building such action strategies.
      • Here I would introduce the concepts of transformation catalysts
      • who build effective, purposeful transformation systems
      • using three general processes of
        • connecting,
        • cohering, and
        • amplifying.
    1. Some frameworks call this “template inheritance”. In this example, we might say that the application layout “inherits from” or “extends” the base layout. In Rails, this is known as nested layouts, and it is a bit awkward to use. The standard Rails practice for nested layouts is complicated and involves these considerations
    2. But what if you want to reuse one layout within another?
    1. his is a killer-feature which I miss since I switched from Jira to GitLab. I'm using GitLab on a daily basis even in solo-projects and I miss this every day. Everybody would find value to this when using Issues and realize, that some depend on others (so basically always).
    2. Using an issue tracker without them is, in my opinion, a little like using an outlining program that only supports two levels of nesting, or like using Wiki software that doesn't have the concept of reverse links. Makes me sad!
    3. (I grant that many of us contribute code to Gitlab, and would also like to participate as members of the development team in guiding the implementations, but clearly the core team has to have the final say in what direction that takes... unless someone wants to create and maintain their own fork of Gitlab ;) )
    1. the canonical unit, the NCU supports natural capital accounting, currency source, calculating and accounting for ecosystem services, and influences how a variety of governance issues are resolved
      • for: canonical unit, collaborative commons - missing part - open learning commons, question - process trap - natural capital

      • comment

        • in this context, indyweb and Indranet are not the canonical unit, but then, it seems the model is fundamentally missing the functionality provided but the Indyweb and Indranet, which is and open learning system.
        • without such an open learning system that captures the essence of his humans learn, the activity of problem-solving cannot be properly contextualised, along with all of limitations leading to progress traps.
        • The entire approach of posing a problem, then solving it is inherently limited due to the fractal intertwingularity of reality.
      • question: progress trap - natural capital

        • It is important to be aware that there is a real potential for a progress trap to emerge here, as any metric is liable to be abused

    1. It does provide an answer. The issue is that the Google form validates that the user has input a valid looking URL. So he needs to input an arbitrary, but valid URL, and then add that to /etc/hosts so his browser will resolve it to the address of his devserver. The question and answer are both fine as is and don't require any critique or clarification.

      The critical comment this was apparently in reply to was apparently deleted

    1. In finance, the greater fool theory suggests that one can sometimes make money through the purchase of overvalued assets — items with a purchase price drastically exceeding the intrinsic value — if those assets can later be resold at an even higher price.
    1. I ran into the same problem and never really found a good answer via the test objects. The only solution I saw was to actually update the session via a controller. I defined a new action in one of my controllers from within test_helper (so the action does not exist when actually runnning the application). I also had to create an entry in routes. Maybe there’s a better way to update routes while testing. So from my integration test I can do the following and verfiy: assert(session[:fake].nil?, “starts empty”) v = ‘Yuck’ get ‘/user_session’, :fake => v assert_equal(v, session[:fake], “value was set”)
    1. Auto-update aside, you might also have found it hard to find a Chrome binary with a specific version. Google intentionally doesn’t make versioned Chrome downloads available, since users shouldn’t have to care about version numbers—they should always get updated to the latest version as soon as possible. This is great for users, but painful for developers needing to reproduce a bug report in an older Chrome version.
    1. rendered.should have_selector("#header") do |header| header.should have_selector("ul.navlinks") end Both of which silently pass - however, capybara doesn't support a :content option (it should be :text), and it doesn't support passing blocks to have_selector (a common mistake from Webrat switchers).

    1. Roth asks ‘how might our own reading of early modern sources change if we had access to the oral spheres within which they were embedded and which framed their reception?’

      The level of orality in societies can radically change our perceptions of their histories, though quite often this material is missing in our evaluations.

    1. Using --ours did what I was after, just discarding the incoming cherry picked file. @Juan you're totally right about those warning messages needing to say what they did't do, not just why they didn't do it. And a bit more explanation that the ambiguity from the conflict needs to be resolved (by using --ours, etc) would be super helpful to this error message.

    1. There is no such method in ruby, but you can easily define it like: def my_strip(string, chars) chars = Regexp.escape(chars) string.gsub(/\A[#{chars}]+|[#{chars}]+\z/, "") end

    1. Hashie does not have built-in support for coercing boolean values, since Ruby does not have a built-in boolean type or standard method for coercing to a boolean. You can coerce to booleans using a custom proc.

      I use: ActiveRecord::Type::Boolean.new.cast(value)

    1. but even ᴡindows® Notepad tries to substitute unknown characters from glyphs in other fonts instead of using the replacement character directly. Sometimes it even substitute characters whereas they exist in the font

      .

    1. Mono doesn't have that glyph, so what you're seeing is that that symbol is being used from another font to be able to show something
    1. No, there is no “glyph not found” character. Different programs use different graphic presentations. An empty narrow rectangle is a common rendering, but not the only one. It could also be a rectangle with a question mark in it or with the code number of the character, in hexadecimal, in it.
    2. The glyph-not-found character is specified by the font engine and by the font; there is no fixed character for it.
    3. missing glyph
    4. There is no standardized look/glyph, it’s up to the implementation

    1. we see by learning to see. The brain evolved the mechanisms for finding patterns, finding relationships in information, 00:04:38 and associating those relationships with a behavioral meaning, a significance, by interacting with the world. We're very aware of this in the form of more cognitive attributes, like language. I'm going to give you some letter strings, and I want you to read them out for me, if you can. Audience: "Can you read this?" "You are not reading this." "What are you reading?" Beau Lotto: "What are you reading?" Half the letters are missing, right? 00:05:04 There's no a priori reason why an "H" has to go between that "W" and "A." But you put one there. Why? Because in the statistics of your past experience, it would have been useful to do so. So you do so again. And yet you don't put a letter after that first "T." Why? Because it wouldn't have been useful in the past. So you don't do it again.

      Being journey 3 Linguistic BEing journey - filling in missing letters in incomplete sentence is based on our past experience with specific sentences that have those letters. This becomes compelling when we can demonstrate with multiple languages, including ones we are not familiar with. Those people in the other cultures will fill in missing letters in their words in their language that we would be completely clueless about.

    1. There are ways to create aspect-ratio sized boxes in HTML/CSS today. None of the options are particularly elegant because they rely on the “hack” of setting a zero height and pushing the boxes height with padding. Wouldn’t it be nicer to have a platform feature to help us here?

    1. apt-rdepends exists. This functionality should really reside in apt-cache itself.

      Update: Maybe it does already exist now. I was able to run this, for example without apt-rdepends being installed: apt-cache rdepends --installed libwebpmux3

    1. That's not how flatpack works; the executable is hidden in a container and you need to set up the whole environment to be able to call it. Delivering a well-isolated, not-to-be-run-from-outside environment is the whole point.

    1. With JavaScript, you can actually calculate the width of the scrollbar and whether it’s visible by comparing two properties—window.innerWidth and document.body.clientWidth. If these are equal, the scrollbar isn’t visible. If these are different, we can subtract the body width from the window width to get the width of the scrollbar:const scrollbarWidth = window.innerWidth - document.body.clientWidthWe’ll want to perform this both on page load and on resize, in case someone resizes the window vertically and changes the overflow. Then, once we have the scrollbar width, we can assign it as a CSS variable:document.body.setProperty("--scrollbarWidth", `${scrollbarWidth}px`)

      missing feature: vw/vh can't be used "directly" because doesn't account for scrollbars

    1. In the vast majority of cases when I'm using prettier-ignore I'm only really looking to prevent it from breaking my code into new lines, whilst keeping its other transformations such as switching quotes and adding space between brackets. When ignoring single lines, fixing these formatting problems by hand is very manageable. With the ability to have Prettier ignore entire blocks of code I think the ability to specify what you want it to ignore is essential.
    2. This should be basic functionality.

    1. Drop missing values from the dataframeIn this method we can see that by using dropmissing() method, we are able to remove the rows having missing values in the data frame. Drop missing values is good for those datasets which are large enough to miss some data that will not affect the prediction and it’s not good for small datasets it may lead to underfitting the models.

      Listwise Deletion

    1. Yes, it shares the name and the look of those previous games, but it lacks the all-important creative heart of its predecessors, and ends up being a by-the-numbers affair that goes through the motions in a shallow attempt to turn Scribblenauts' unique premise into a multiplayer party game.
    1. It's as good as online-only, however with noone actually playing you'll find yourself queueing for bot matches (even having to wait for the "other players" to select their vehicles). You want to just race your mate in a local game- nope! Local races are single-player only (apparently the devs couldn't be bothered with coding a split-screen or zooming camera to enable local multiplayer races). Want to play online but specify the map? Nope! Play a game online with a good lobby and want to stick with that group? Nope! Every game forces you to exit after each event.
    1. Basically every review complains that saves don't work and the dev still hasn't fixed it after four years, gj.
    2. it WILL NOT SAVE the progress!!!!!!!So, no, forget it!!!!
    3. With absolutely no means of saving progression in this game I cannot for the life of me understand why anyone would give this game a positive review. It could have been a decent enough game for the genre, however unless you have all day to dedicate to completing the game in one sitting, avoid.
    4. I was going to give this a good review, then I went and read the other reviews about the game not saving. I thought to myself, surely not! This must some sort of smear campaign against the fine developers at jemchicomac?!? Alas, it is my duty to report that there is indeed no save functionality in this game. Tis a pity.
    5. Alright, let me get this straight: the developer decided to create a game that's 60 levels long, which is 5 worlds each with 12 levels, and didn't implement a save feature? We are in a time where save features are a high need for a game. If anything, for a long game, they'd have passcodes, but we're past those times now, so a save feature is what one would expect in a game. Why does the developer ignore the players who want a save feature? I saw in the discussions that what looked like a parent/guardian bought this game specifically for their kids to play. Do you think the kids will be able to play a game like this and complete it in one sitting? No, I don't think so. Those poor kids are now stuck with a game where they won't feel any accomplishment with because they have to restart every time.
    6. The game save doesnt work, what is the point in playing something with so many levels if you cant and never will reach the end of it, unless you dont turn of your pc/game for days till you pass all the levels.
    7. Despite being a nice game... no saving progress kills it.
    1. Unstoppable CrapsterThis is crap shovelwareRe-skinned exact same other 10 games this sad excuse for a developer been farting out.No sound, no gameplay, no nothing.Can't press two buttons at the same time like jump and move.Plays like sonic the hedgehog just had sex with painbrushWhile having a stroke, heart attack and anal prolapse at the same time.Don't support this developer.Steam get your sh!t together, start filtering out this crap.
    1. The default fill_in method of Capybara is case sensitive. This is apparently due to their use of XPath. Anyhow, this seems to not be very well aligned with the entire idea of DSLs and letting non programmers write tests.

      not very well aligned

    2. After some searching i found a stack overflow problem that didn't fix my issue but anyhow… I simply used a little ruby and the capybara library to find the field myself with some case insensitive regex and the ruby detect method

    1. If you really want this, I suggest you write a little function that extracts the executable name from the .desktop file and runs it. Add these lines to your shell's initialization file (e.g. ~/.bashrc): runDesktop () { eval "$(awk -F= '$1=="Exec"{$1=""; print}' "$1")" } Then, you can run your .desktop file with runDesktop ~/Desktop/slack.desktop
    1. The :empty selector refers only to child nodes, not input values. [value=""] does work; but only for the initial state. This is because a node's value attribute (that CSS sees), is not the same as the node's value property (Changed by the user or DOM javascript, and submitted as form data).
    2. There is (currently) no CSS selector for detecting directly whether an input control has a nonempty value, so we need to do it indirectly, as described above.
    1. Validating forms has notoriously been a painful development experience. Implementing client side validation in a user friendly, developer friendly, and accessible way is hard. Before HTML5 there was no means of implementing validation natively; therefore, developers have resorted to a variety of JavaScript based solutions.

    1. Eh, that's just sales. Humans are dumb, panicky animals: just look at how J.C. Penny's "Fair and Square" initiative went.Short version: they went full-on no bullshit: no limited time sales, no fake prices discounted, things cost what they cost, no more FOMO, no waiting for deals.It tanked. Horribly.
    2. Why do companies insist on making deals a gamble? Is it basically just to capture FOMO sales?Both rhetorical questions.Edit: I'm talking about how you can pay one price for a deal and then a couple months later it's even cheaper.
    1. Endpoint is the missing link between your routing (Rails, Hanami, …) and the “operation” to be called. It provides standard behavior for all cases 404, 401, 403, etc and lets you hook in your own logic like Devise or Tyrant authentication, again, using TRB activity mechanics.
    1. So how are we going to create a model that doesn’t have a database table behind it? There are several potential solutions including various plugins but we’re going to use the method described in an entry on the Code Tunes blog. This shows a techinque that involves overriding a couple of methods in an ActiveRecord model and then manually defining the columns in the model file rather than in the database table. In our Recommendation model we’ll add in the two overridden methods and then use the column class method to define the columns in a similar way to how they’re defined in a migration file.

      Does this still work in Rails 6? I wonder.

    1. with ActiveForm-Rails, validations is the responsability of the form and not of the models. There is no need to synchronize errors from the form to the models and vice versa.

      But if you intend to save to a model after the form validates, then you can't escape the models' validations:

      either you check that the models pass their own validations ahead of time (like I want to do, and I think @mattheworiordan was wanting to do), or you have to accept that one of the following outcomes is possible/inevitable if the models' own validations fail:

      1. if you use object.save then it may silently fail to save
      2. if you use object.save then it will fail to save and raise an error

      Are either of those outcomes acceptable to you? To me, they seem not to be. Hence we must also check for / handle the models' validations. Hence we need a way to aggregate errors from both the form object (context-specific validations) and from the models (unconditional/invariant validations that should always be checked by the model), and present them to the user.

      What do you guys find to be the best way to accomplish that?

      I am interested to know what best practices you use / still use today after all these years. I keep finding myself running into this same problem/need, which is how I ended up looking for what the current options are for form objects today...

    1. There is nothing wrong with accepts_nested_attributes_for. This is what you should use in your typical case. My post describes a non-typical case. ContactListForm is not an ActiveRecord object, it is an object that includes ActiveModel::Model, which does not support accepts_nested_attributes_for.
    1. Adding backgrounds and borders does feel like a missing feature of the CSS Grid specification and one which the Working Group have discussed along with many members of the community (the discussion thread is on GitHub).
    1. I hope we see new CSS capabilities arise that allow this sort of effect without the need for trickery.
    2. Since CSS doesn’t (yet) offer a way to style grid cells, areas, or tracks directly, we have to stretch elements over the parts we want to style independently from the elements that contain content.
    3. They likely won’t have any content, making them a sort of structural filler to spackle over the gaps in Grid’s capabilities.

    1. No, this is not a duplicate of that linked question. I don't need to know "why it's a snap". I want to know how to use it without snap.
    1. https://github.com/sveltejs/svelte/issues/1037#issuecomment-737872461

      Explanation (from https://github.com/sveltejs/svelte/issues/1037#issuecomment-739458005):

      @AlexGalays register is an action created and passed in from the parent node (Wrapper) which allows the child to register with it. Not builtin to svelte.

      That's very clever @PatrickG. Nice one. I was a bit confused when first looking at it to understand what was going on, but I think that will be a handy tool in the toolbox.

      But why do we need this? If we remove all use:register, it still toggles just fine. Seems the only benefit is that this allows cleanup.

    1. No more waiting around for pull requests to be merged and published. No more forking repos just to fix that one tiny thing preventing your app from working.

      This could be both good and bad.

      potential downside: If people only fix things locally, then they may be less inclined/likely to actually/also submit a merge request, and therefore it may be less likely that this actually (ever) gets fixed upstream. Which is kind of ironic, considering the stated goal "No more waiting around for pull requests to be merged and published." But if this obviates the need to create a pull request (does it), then this could backfire / work against that goal.

      Requiring someone to fork a repo and push up a fix commit -- although a little extra work compared to just fixing locally -- is actually a good thing overall, for the community/ecosystem.

      Ah, good, I see they touched on some of these points in the sections:

      • Benefits of patching over forking
      • When to fork instead
    2. Yarn only runs the postinstall hook after yarn and yarn add, but not after yarn remove. The postinstall-postinstall package is used to make sure your postinstall hook gets executed even after a yarn remove.
    1. It seems being able to bind:this={slotEl} directly on a slot element is a popular request. I'll add my +1 as adding div wrappers just to get dom references gets old really fast.
    1. I also would like to see any hidden blocks or dev shortcuts.
    2. I'm more bothered by the fact that you can't practice other people's levels, just certain parts of the level, before actually going back and trying to beat it completely.

    1. I hope @hperrin you're still alive to discuss about this and eventually for a pull request.
    2. @monkeythedev I am curious how do you "organize" your work - You forked https://github.com/hperrin/svelte-material-ui and https://github.com/hperrin/svelte-material-ui is not very active. Do you plan an independent project ? I hope the original author would return at some times, if not, i'll see
