If you wear a lot of hats in a small team, or if you feel like your projects could be more successful if they looked better, this is for you. Here are five traditional elements and principles of art and design that will cure the ugly (or at least disguise it).
jQuery plugin for equalizing the height or width of elements.
Microsoft Office pre-fetches hyperlinks using an internal DLL (which doesn't know about your cookies), follows all redirects and opens your browser with the result. This is because of stupidity.
The "fix" is to not redirect but just render a text like "access denied" with 200 OK when you see that
The following stopped working with git version 184.108.40.206 or higher
When you are using
git rebase and are currently editing a commit (due to a conflict, for example), you may want to know the current commit. \

jquery-timing is a very useful jquery plugin that helps to remove lots of nested anonymous functions. It's API provides you some methods that help you to write readable and understandable method chains. See yourself:
Examples how to create dozens of shapes using pure CSS and a single HTML element.
I’ve worked on huge applications in Ruby and Rails before. I very much want to believe in DCI, but I’m having a hard time accepting the promises of Clean Ruby when it seems like the work on this paradigm is half-done. If it weren’t so oversold and hyped, I think I’d be more patient, but right now I’m just frustrated and confused.
Axlsx is an incredible gem to generate "Office Open XML" spreadsheet files (XLSX). Does not break on large spreadsheets and supports a ton of features like graphs.

The documentation of some methods is a bit out of date, but you'll find your way around the gem's code.
No support for reading files, however. :( If you want to open XLSX spreadsheets (for example to confirm your output in tests), you can use [
When you have a Pull Request on GitHub that includes commits from another Pull Request, you will still see them after the "child" PR has been merged. Unfortunately, GitHub won't automatically update the diff (or commit list).
Here is what worked for me:
git checkout my-target-branch

As attachments to this card you will find a Cucumber feature and supplementing step definition that you can use to provoke Selenium focus issues that only occur when two focus-sensitive Selenium scenarios run at the same time (probably with parallel_tests). This can help you to detect and fix flickering integration tests.
The attached feature works by going to your
root_path and focusing a random form element every 5…
Do this before you install the gem:

When doing a
git blame, git will blame the person who added or removed white space in a line (e.g. by indenting), not the person who originally wrote the code.
git blame -w to ignore such white-space changes. You want this. \
Note that you can also use it when diffing:
git diff -w.
Consider this method, created by a user in commit
def hello 'world' end
$ git blame foo

I was unsatisfied with the existing memory status applets for the Xfce panel, so I wrote a little shell script that shows me just the information I need. Now I use it via a "Generic Monitor" panel applet.
Put this at some place like
chmod +x it:
#!/bin/sh meminfo=`free -m | grep 'Mem:'` used=`echo $meminfo | cut -d" " -f3` total=`echo $meminfo | cut -d" " -f2` cached=`echo $meminfo | cut -d" " -f7` really_used=`expr $used - $cached` echo "Memory usage: $really_used / $total (Cached: ...
