keyboards/ ☻

  • after moving to seattle i started building mechanical keyboards
  • keyboards site
  • a group here in Seattle that hosts yearly events ckeys


linux/ ✓

  • been using linux off and on for years, and other software, this sites running a linux server on linode
  • the linux site has some videos showing how to automate things and examples of code i use to tune faster workflows which can be reused on any type of project where typing or coding is involved
  • i also program powerfull embedded devices that fit in your pocket and interface with external sensors, cameras, etc. basically some of these are full computers that fit in your hand
  • a good beginner device is the m5stack



  • cookiecutter is an application for scaffolding application templates for anything, plain text documentation or code, documentation is part of code so duh...
  • what does that mean? refer to the website, not sure I can say it any simpler, basically it allows you to create projects using templates, combining multiple languages or formats
  • this is one of the most powerful things you can do for yourself if you work with computers

bullet journaling

  • aka bujo
  • i've used bullet journaling for a long time, i have my own way of doing it
  • the main difference in how i use it is i keep separate jounrals for projects instead of collecting them into one


bujo & linux

  • if you use linux here are some shortcuts, in project folders create a bujo/ folder
  • here are my keyboard shortcuts most work relative to the folder
    • rd cl in ft fj jf bj bujo
  • bullet journal ebook <-- this is a personal link to my own ebook it won't work for you


## journaling workflows 
alias rd="vim ./"
alias cl="vim ./"
alias in='vim ./'
alias ft='vim ./'
alias fj='vim ./"$(date +%F)".md'
alias jf='mkdir "$(date +%F)" && cd "$(date +%F)"'
alias bj='cd ./bujo && fj'
alias bujo='cd ./bujo && fj'


  • i'm experimenting with using joplin and bujo
  • also experimenting with command line apps to do more complex bujo patterns but nothing worth sharing yet, they use shell, bash & pthon

todo cli

  • todo cli is a command line to do app
  • these are keyboard shortcuts I use t d snooze done tedit tall tpri
  • each project gets a todocli/ folder and these commands run relative to the current directory


# todocli app 
alias t='clear && ./todocli/'
alias d='clear && t listpri a'
alias snooze='clear && t listpri'
alias done='clear && cat ./todocli/done.txt'
alias tedit='vim ./todocli/todo.txt'
alias tall='clear && find . -name "todo.txt" | xargs grep "+"'
alias tpri='clear && find . -name "todo.txt" | xargs grep "(A"'
alias tprib='clear && find . -name "todo.txt" | xargs grep "(B"'
alias tpric='clear && find . -name "todo.txt" | xargs grep "(C"'
alias thelp='clear && ./todocli/ shorthelp'

vimium - navigation tricks for hyperproductive nerds

  • install vimium for chrome allows you to use keyboard shortcuts instead of a mouse
  • once you learn vimium shortcuts you can browse mouseless and reuse the same shortcuts in many other apps like joplin or vim
