Application-specific recent files pipe-menus for Openbox

Posted 01-10-2016 at 09:55 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Here's an example for GIMP:


printf "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?><openbox_pipe_menu>"

# Instead of just "gimp" in the next line, it could even be a series of
# related programs, if you juggle between different applications with 
# these files. Such as "gimp\|inkscape\|krita\|mypaint"

grep -B 10 gimp ~/.local/share/recently-used.xbel | \

Smokeping in OpenBSD httpd

OpenBSD maintained a fork of apache httpd 1.3 for some time, but as the fork started to show its age, they dropped it in favor of nginx. A year later, a home-grown secure web server, called simply "httpd" was birthed from the relayd codebase. I just started messing with httpd recently, and I managed to get smokeping running beautifully in it. After a bit, I decided to start gathering latency stats on ipv6, so I added most of that today. I'm pretty happy with the results.
