Lighttpd, ProFont, Remind, Ruby, and Scopes.
What follows is a summary of some “announcements” from the last few days on the mailing list. I made peoples name link to their letter.
Lighttpd Configuration Highlighting
Frédéric Ballériaux (also known as Fred B.) located a version of ProFont with ligatures disabled. Previously I recommended using the ProFontISOLatin1 variant if you wanted your tool tips to show without ligatures, but this version of the font is a better solution.
Remind is a calendar/reminder shell command which takes as input your calendar file (which is written in a simple plain text format) and outputs upcoming events. Very simple, yet very flexible and powerful, just how I like it!
You can download Remind from DarwinPorts by using:
sudo port install remind
It does not include the
remind2html conversion tool though. But with GeekTool, who needs it? :)
Ruby Idioms Bundle
Working With Scopes
Starting with r948 of TextMate it is possible to have commands get an XML representation of the current document (as parsed by the TextMate language parser.) Charilaos Skiadas (also known as Haris) created a Ruby class which parses this into a tree and provides methods to work with it.
