            Git - do not listen to commands in nested dirs
            Asked 2021-May-27 at 09:23

            I've got a git repo in my home directory to keep track of some dotfiles.

            An unpleasant side effect of that, no matter where I am now, it is considered a part of the ~ repo, and it's easy to mistakenly add files to it etc.

            It is somehow possible, that the repo in ~/.git listens to commands (git add, etc) ONLY if these commands are invoked directly in ~, and otherwise it just pretends to not exist, i.e. not a repository is thrown? (For example, if I invoke git add -A in ~/Documents)



            Answered 2021-May-27 at 09:23

            No this is not possible.

            Another way, however, can be to use a non standard .git directory :

            • rename your .git/ directory to some other name (e.g : .git-wont-know/, or .git-dotfiles/)
            • use git --git-dir=~/.git-wont-know ... when you want to interact with it (link to docs)

            You can set an alias or a wrapper to use this specific git dir ; you can also set GIT_DIR=~/.git-wont-know if you want to pass this down to existing scripts.

            [update] this turns off the "spot where the repo is located by looking for the .git directory" feature.

            If you want to invoke git with this setup from a subdirectory (say : from $HOME/.config/), you may want to also specify that the worktree is your home directory :

            Why are symlinks created when unzipping?
            Asked 2021-May-03 at 15:53

            I have a repository where I store all my dotfiles so it's easier to setup a new computer. The repository also contains scripts that install apps, modify my dock, set preferences, update SSH keys, etc. Since the repository updates my SSH keys and modifies my git config, I've found it easier to just download the repository as a ZIP file and then run the starting script (vs. setting up Git manually and then cloning the repository).

            However, I just did this to setup a new computer and used unzip to unzip the repository and it looked like some of my setup actually ran (setting up sym-links).



            Answered 2021-May-03 at 15:53

            Most likely because the zip file was created with symlinks.

            From the zip man page:

            -y | --symlinks

            For UNIX and VMS (V8.3 and later), store symbolic links as such in the zip archive, instead of compressing and storing the file referred to by the link. This can avoid multiple copies of files being included in the archive as zip recurses the directory trees and accesses files directly and by links.



            MongoDB Deployed on Raspberry Pi Timing out on Nodejs Server with SSL
            Asked 2021-May-01 at 05:46

            I recently deployed my nodejs server along with mongoDb on a raspberry pi and everything works fine but the mongoDB requests are timing out. I believe the error has something to do with the ssl as when I remove the SSL it works fine.

            The error I get is on any api request I make to the server is:



            Answered 2021-May-01 at 05:41

            make sure your database connection code is in your server.js and not an external file if its in an external file make sure you call it in the server.js or it will not connect to the database



            Make Express Static stop "pending" with Node 14?
            Asked 2021-Apr-20 at 06:48

            I asked this question half a year ago, but I'm still having the same issue: Express Static network requests stuck on "pending"

            Tl;dr: Node 14 + Webpack watch mode + Express Static causes the browser to hang every time I change a JS file. This occurs in multiple browsers, after restarting the server, and after clearing the cache.

            The 2 ways to get the browser to stop hanging are:

            • close and reopen the tab
            • go to the homepage (http://localhost)

            This issue doesn't occur in Node 12. Is there any way to get the browser to stop hanging in Node 14+?

            Edit: Here's my Express code, working on a repo for repro:

            CoC: Diagnostic window takes over screen
            Asked 2021-Apr-01 at 20:16

            I am setting up neovim, with CoC.

            It seems to work well, but with one big problem: My diagnostic windows are very large

            I am not sure why this is. I would expect this to be only a few lines. Ideally, it should show up somewhere not directly over the code, but I'm not sure how to configure this.

            This is my neovim config:

            POSIX array and loop
            Asked 2021-Mar-15 at 13:12

            I make an array of files as follows, and then "source" those files. I am also trying to make a script as close to POSIX possible so I don't have issues running it in different shells.



            Answered 2021-Mar-14 at 18:12

            Just assign "${SELF_PATH_DIR}.${file}" to a temporary variable or modify the same variable.

            By the way: If the loop is the only spot where you are using set --/$@ then you can iterate directly over the list:



            My git uses someone else’s name and email
            Asked 2021-Mar-09 at 09:01

            When I check the configuration information:



            Answered 2021-Mar-09 at 09:00

            Check your environment variable for variables like:

            • GIT_AUTHOR_NAME
            • GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL
            • GIT_COMMITTER_NAME

            They could have an impact on your final commit.

            The final creation of a Git commit object is usually done by git-commit-tree, which uses these environment variables as its primary source of information, falling back to configuration values only if these aren’t present.



            Can't set brigtness and media control keys on Xmonad
            Asked 2021-Feb-18 at 01:00

            I managed to set up my XMonad config from the ground up by myself - but I am having difficulties setting the brightness and media control keys - and I have no experience in programming or Haskell for that matter, and thus I don't know how to read the error messages (my fault, sorry). When reverting to the state before the changes relating to my problems, I have no compilation erorrs.

            So I tried copiying from other people's dotfiles but I always got compilation errors. Here I am copying Derrek Taylor's XMonad config, specifically the part relating to the problem. So I copied :



            Answered 2021-Feb-18 at 01:00

            OK so it seems I accidentally fixed my own problem, but in the most unusual way :

            1. I went over to this site because I was searching on how to control the brightness. Literally just went to Duck Duck Go and put "how to conrtol brightness XMonad" or whatever. Installed Lux, the program to do it. For some reason after trying XBrightness it didn't register my screen or some other error message was found which is irrelevant for this discussion so I just stuck with Lux.

            2. However while the general syntax seemed good, I've now noticed that DT's config which I gave the link to above had a different name for the XF keys. Well I just discovered while writing this was that the reason I had problems was the EZ keymap configuration - DT was using it and seems I wasn't. This realization however was much after doing step 3.

            3.I took at Luke Smith's DWM fork which I used for a while before switching to XMonad. Turns out the keymap names are different and I tried them instead. Then noticed that the X in XF86AudioLowerVolume for instance was capitalized while in something like , ((0, xF86XK_MonBrightnessUp), spawn "lux -a 10%") from step 1 it wasn't. Since at this point Lux worked I just played the game of making sure the syntax was the same for both cases. Eventually I also figured out that Luke's dwm fork held the exact names for the keys including the lowercase so I just stuck with copiying the syntax and changing the appropriate keybindings. A few XMonad compile error messages later it got everything working !

            Now my Controls look as follows :
