I love seeing how other developers work, normally I'll be like 'Hey, did you just do that?' and 'WTF was that you just did?'.
So… I've been meaning to get one together for a while and well, here it is, a screencast showing some of the stuff I use. Had a bit of a cold, my Internet connection wasn't too great and it was a bit adhoc so apologies if it's a bit quiet and there's no editing, will add a few pointers below to hopefully piece this together :D
Applications and Hardware setup I use can be found here:
/setapp.me/users/simonowendesign (no longer online)
1.20 - QuickSilver is free, there's also a similar app called Alfed.
2:20 - TotalFinder - Can this be done?
Cmd + Shift + T to re-open a tab?
Yes, it now can! But at the minute you'll need to activate 'pre-releases':
Finder > Preferences > TotalFinder > About > Check 'Include pre-releases', then click 'Check Now'.
5:30 - Remember this will need to be changed when live!
Hmmm… The httpd one should have opening < VirtualHost * > and closing < /VirtualHost > tags, but they're not showing on my site, will check this out. Sorted https://www.debbietdesigns.com/learn/39/code-pre-xhtml-tags/
8:42 - Lol… I was pointing at my screen 'Obviously you can't see that'.
10:02 - Shortcut is
Cmd + T here.
10:25 - Google App Engine FTW!
11:37 - Sorry was tired! Meant the angle bracket: <
12:00 - Saved the file here first instead of
Cmd + Shift + P, then type 'set html'.
12:30 - There we go ^_^
15:10 - Actually dragged just the theme folder here, not the entire folder!
16:34 - Lol…
17:00 - Would be nice if I had YSlow / Page Speed for my Internet connection :p
18:20 - It is possible if you have access to your router to fix your IP. Haven't got around to doing it yet, but I'd recommend it so you don't have to keep updating it.
19:00 - LiveReload / iPhone and other devices etc…
21:31 - Implementing a build script is something that's on my 'Things to do' list.
22:40 - Was in the root folder, not the theme folder that is where the repo is.
23:40 - Sorry! Forgot code again.
24:07 - Got it :)
24:23 - Boink, boink, boink. How do you get out of that??? Forgot shortcut!
25:15 - You can do this in one go, but that's risky business ;)
And there we go, so hope that helps, if you've got any questions, feel free to get in touch. What I'd love to see are screencasts on how people handle the database side of things from local to live.
