Some mountains I copied from some website.
I love this piece of software and I use it every day. It is a simple note taking application which syncs across all of your devices. It is a self-hosted single-page web app that runs on a PHP server and does not require a database.
I run a copy on my phone and a copy on my laptop.
- I used
Add to homescreenon my phone so that it gets an icon and launches full-screen.
- I'm using this site-specific browser trick to run the app in its own window on my desktop.
The app was built by Kaspars Dambis and I forked it to modify the design and add some usability tweaks like
ctrl-S to force sync. You can find the source code of my fork on GitHub if you want to install it yourself.
There are times in life when you need to keep track of periodic events as they happen. For example when you have a new baby it is sometimes useful to keep track of when they feed, nappy changes, etc. Another example might be tracking how often you eat chocolate or drink beer.
Clerk is a simple self-hosted web application that I built which you can install to the home screen of your device (by doing "add to home screen" in your browser) or load up on your tablet or laptop. You can then keep track of simple events with two taps on your device - once to open the app and once to record the event.
For every event logged the
comment are stored in CSV files. Events are stored in individual CSV files - one file per event type. You can also download all CSVs stiched together with an extra column for the event name.
- Web based.
- Easy to deploy.
- Self-hosted & FLOSS.
- Simple text based CSV format.
- Allows multiple people to log events.
- Mobile friendly - "Add to Home Screen" web-app.
- Download a release or get the source code with
git clone https://github.com/chr15m/Clerk.git.
- Copy the files to your PHP web hosting.
To require authentication, first create a password file:
htpasswd -c /path/to/.htpasswd username
.htaccess and edit it.
Scout and I made this stop-motion short film.
How we made it:
watch-make is a script that rebuilds your project only when
make detects it needs a rebuild, for example when source files change.
- Works with any existing Makefile based project.
- No dependencies apart from
- Passes any arguments to
- Silent if there is nothing to build and does not swallow output when there is.
I wrote it in response to this Stack Overflow question.
The source code is hosted on GitHub.
curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/chr15m/watch-make/master/watch-make > ~/bin/watch-make chmod 755 ~/bin/watch-make
