            How to use one key-binding to spawn tag-specific program in awesome-wm?
            Asked 2022-Mar-28 at 08:29

            Introduction: In my wrokflow, I am using tags for specific purposes (WEB, IDE, EMAIL, File Manager,>Terminal/Taskwarrior-tui/Timewarrior) and I want to stick to this. So whenever I go to tag 1 I want to have a browser there.

            Problem: I would like to minimize the number of key bindings for the most important programs.

            Question: How can I use one keybinding for launching a "default program for the tag"??

            Example: Let's say that I am currently on tag 1 (called WEB) which default application would be qutebrowser (at least in my case) so I would like to hit MOD+D to spawn qutebrowser. But when I hit the same keybinding (MOD+D) on tag 2 i want awesome-wm to spawn Rstudio.

            Note that I am not asking how to make a rule of spawning a certain program on specific tag (with a keybinding assigned to spawning this program) as there are a lot of answers to that around the web. I want to have conditional rule, based on which tag is active, to spawn a predefined app in this tag with one keybinding.

            Label extremes of HTML5 range input
            Asked 2021-Apr-06 at 22:09

            I'd like to label the extremes of a range input for ordinal data (0-10) to unambiguate the UI. Mozilla documentation suggests that I should be able to use a datalist within my form like this:



            Answered 2021-Apr-06 at 22:09

            You can add separate elements, probably elements, on either side of your input, then use CSS to position them appropriately.

            As far as tick-marks are concerned, there isn't a standard way to add those. However, with the concept of progressive enhancement in mind, feel free to add the without the label attributes (since you'll have those set using the above-referenced elements) so that users who access your site on browsers that do support the tick marks can see them.

            How can I disable a whole CSS stylesheet on a specific list of domains?
            Asked 2020-Oct-02 at 19:59

            The browser I'm using, qutebrowser, allows me to set a CSS file that applies those styles to every web site (but doesn't allow you to set it per page/domain, as far as I can tell), so I downloaded a dark theme CSS stylesheet from solarized-everything-css, but it seems the result on some website is unsatisfactory.

            Therefore, I'd like to know if CSS offers a way to not apply a sequence of rulesets (in my case it'd be the whole stylesheet) on some domains. Something long the lines of



            Answered 2020-Oct-02 at 19:58

            CSS itself cannot do this, because CSS is designed to apply only to a site from which it is loaded within the browser environment. Normally this happens by looking at resources listed in an HTML file's , but can also happen from JavaScript injection via userscripts/addons/extensions a user has installed in their web browser.

            So you need to use a 'user' style for this, which means you need to use a web browser that supports this. If the browser you're using (qutebrowser) does not allow you to set specific domains/URLs, then this will not be possible for you without creating your own user script (written in JavaScript, presumably) to apply this functionality on top of what the browser supports natively.

            Skip non-array attributes at a specific nesting level in JSON
            Asked 2020-Jun-21 at 20:46

            I am trying to retrieve Firefox's blacklisted hosts from the source list it uses so that I can use it for another browser (Qutebrowser).

            I have been reasonably successful with jq to parse the JSON.



            Answered 2020-Jun-21 at 06:53

            Is there any way to disregard those non-array attributes with jq?

            Yes, arrays built-in.

            As an extra, please let me know if I could ditch the for loop and do the whole process in a single jq (because currently, as can be seen above, I list all the categories in the for loop).

            Array/Object Value Iterator does that for you.

            Is it possible to start eww with an url via script from shell?
            Asked 2020-Jan-29 at 11:16

            Sometimes I read an article in my browser (qutebrowser) and think, oh "that article would be nice to work on in emacs". I can call scripts from the browser, and hand them the visited URL.

            Is it possible to call emacs (or even better emacsclient, as I always have a server running) so, that it opens the given URL in eww?

            I found that I can start emacs with a function to call, but not how to hand this function a parameter from outside. For emacsclient I didn' find even that possibility



            Answered 2020-Jan-29 at 04:39

            You can eval arbitrary lisp with the --eval option of emacsclient. So you should be able to do something like this from the shell (season appropriately to call it from the browser):
