            PYQT QTableView Delegate can not show createEditor when applied with Proxy
            Asked 2022-Mar-25 at 21:03

            I'm having problem to show the Editor Widget when Delegate is applied with the Proxy situation. -> self.table.setModel(self.proxy)

            If the Delegate is applied to the View/Model structure, then there is no problem at all. -> #self.table.setModel(self.model)

            Refer to:

            See the code below:



            Answered 2022-Mar-24 at 04:06

            Any attempt to access the view indexes must use the view's model.

            Your code doesn't work because the index you are providing belongs to another model, so the editor cannot be created because the view doesn't recognize the model of the index as its own: the view uses the proxy model, while you're trying to open an editor for the source model.

            While in this case the simplest solution would be to use self.proxy.index(), the proper solution is to always refer to the view's model.

            Change both self.model.index(...) to self.table.model().index(...).

            Why is Jest running the typescript test files and then the compiled JS test files?
            Asked 2022-Mar-07 at 23:30

            When I run Jest, I get 9 failing, 11 passing out of a total of 20, but there are only 10 tests between two different test files, here it is:



            Answered 2022-Mar-07 at 23:30

            Just wanted to post a solution which is not buried in comments.

            By default jest will find any test files in your entire project. If you are building or copying files to a build/release directory, you need to do one of the following:

            1. exclude test files from your build pipeline, OR
            2. exclude your build directories from jest

            parenscript:ps is a macro, not a function: its body is literal parenscript and is not evaluated but compiled, from Parenscript to JavaSctipt. This is easy to check:



            NSTextAttachment images are not dynamic (light/dark mode)
            Asked 2022-Feb-07 at 16:22

            I have an image that is dynamic for light/dark mode. If I place this image in a UIImageView, the dynamism works: when the user switches from light to dark mode and back, the image changes the version of itself that is displayed. But if I place the same image in an NSAttributedString as an NSTextAttachment and display the string in a label, the dynamism does not work: when the user switches from light to dark mode, the image does not change.

            To see the problem in action, paste this code into your viewDidLoad:



            Answered 2022-Feb-07 at 15:13

            I think that's unfortunately the normal behavior, but I considered it as a forgotten feature non-dev by Apple.

            The only way I got currently, is to listen to func traitCollectionDidChange(_ previousTraitCollection: UITraitCollection?) to detect the mode change.

            Then, you can either reconstruct your NSAttributedString, or enumerate over it and update it when needed.

            With a enumeration, ie update only what's needed, and not regenerate the whole NSAttributedString:

            We are trying to create an bot with a use of Adaptive cards on MS-Teams. The preview using adaptive card designer gives the proper image as required. But when used in the Teams app, the image looks totally distorted.

            (Sub)command synonyms for optparse-applicative
            Asked 2021-Nov-21 at 20:29

            I would like to add synonyms for the subcommands in my Haskell command line tool. For example summarise and summarize should yield the same result. Of course I could just add an entirely separate command summarize, that appears as an own element in the output of --help. But maybe there is a more elegant way.

            Here is a self-contained example in a stack script opt_ex.hs:



            Answered 2021-Nov-21 at 20:29

            I don't think you can do this. It works fine for options, because the definition of OptField contains a list of OptName, and adds to that list when you use (<>). But the definition of CommandFields, the thing returned by command, is

            Install howdy

            Howdy is currently available and packaged for Debian/Ubuntu, Arch Linux, Fedora and openSUSE. If you’re interested in packaging Howdy for your distro, don’t hesitate to open an issue. Note: The build of dlib can hang on 100% for over a minute, give it time.
            After installation, Howdy needs to learn what you look like so it can recognise you later. Run sudo howdy add to add a face model. If nothing went wrong we should be able to run sudo by just showing your face. Open a new terminal and run sudo -i to see it in action. Please check this wiki page if you've experiencing problems or search for similar issues. If you're curious you can run sudo howdy config to open the central config file and see the options Howdy has to offer. On most systems this will open the nano editor, where you have to press ctrl+x to save your changes.


            The easiest ways to contribute to Howdy is by starring the repository and opening GitHub issues for features you'd like to see. If you want to do more, you can also buy me a coffee. Code contributions are also very welcome. If you want to port Howdy to another distro, feel free to open an issue for that too.
