Hi! I'm Tyler, a freelance web developer. I have a beautiful daughter and wife, with another baby on the way (due September 12, 2014)!
You can find me on twitter or Google+, and Github.
A flat & sexy Sublime Text theme. Pushups not included.
Brogrammer is a new Sublime Text theme from Ken Wheeler. It’s awfully nice to look at, and use. I’ve been using it for the last couple of days and have enjoyed it, and it’s included Brogrammer color scheme.
Brogrammer is on GitHub and can also be installed via Package Control. After you’ve installed it, either from GitHub or with Package Control, activate it by replacing the theme and color_scheme parameters in your user preferences file with the following:
I’ve been wanting to stop for long time now. I tried the e-cigarettes, but they just didn’t do it for me. Gum, patches, pretty much everything else. I don’t smoke just for nicotine, as explained below.
My brother and his girlfriend recently quit, after calling Quitline Iowa. That was about two months ago and they’re still smoke free, which is awesome. I called the Iowa Quitline a few weeks ago and got a bunch of nicotine patches, and tomorrow, March 10, is my quit date. So, today is my last day of smoking!
I’m kind of anxious about how tomorrow will go. The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is smoke a cigarette, and that’s gonna be hard not to do. I’ll put a patch on instead first thing after waking up.
I’m not anxious about not having the nicotine, as I’ll get it via a patch, but I mostly smoke just for something to do. It’s become a reason for me to go outside and get away from things for a few minutes. So, the anxiety comes mostly from wondering how exactly to break from this routine of going out for a smoke every 1.5-2 hours.
I’m not sure exactly what I’ll do to get past that. Probably just stay super busy, which I am, thankfully. It’s for sure going to be a difficult routine to break. I’d gladly accept any tips or ideas from ex-smokers on how to get past my urge to go outside and smoke, just for the sake of going outside for a few minutes.
I’ll update with more posts as I progress, and, hopefully, will have a post up on Tuesday about how I’ve been smoke free for one whole day!
Pace.js, from HubSpot, is pretty cool. It’s a page load progress bar that usually sits at the top of your website. The Minimial theme for Pace, which I like the best, gets hidden by the WordPress admin bar if you have it enabled. There’s a few different themes though, most work just fine with the WordPress admin bar.
HubSpot describes Pace better than I can.
Include pace.js and a CSS theme of your choice, and you get a beautiful progress indicator for your page load and ajax navigation.
No need to hook into any of your code, progress is detected automatically.
In your functions.php file, just call the cdnjs file instead of a local file. You will, however, have to host the Pace theme CSS locally, which is usually tiny, unless you choose one of the more animated themes. I personally like the Center Simple theme the best.
The wp_enqueue_style() call below loads /css/pace.css from your theme’s stylesheet directory. That’s the file that should contain the CSS provided by the Pace theme download.
// load styles
wp_enqueue_style('pace-css',get_stylesheet_directory_uri().'/css/pace.css');// Center Simple Theme CSS
If your functions.php file already contains a add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'load_scripts' ), find the function it calls, and add wp_enqueue_style and wp_enqueue_script there instead of making a new function like the example above.
I’ll show how to create your own functionality plugin within the next few posts/days. If you want notified of when exactly it’s posted, subscribe below. Look for the Get New Posts via E-Mail heading.
