A clock as the header of Openbox' root menu

Posted 07-15-2014 at 04:15 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 07-16-2014 at 06:35 PM by the dsc (grammar?)

If you want a clock instead of the typical "openbox"-labeled separator at the top of the root menu. The way to do that isn't the most nice and convenient way imaginable, though. Essentially you have the root menu as a pipe menu.


The executed script is just a sed one liner:

Code:
 sed "s|INSERT-CLOCK-HERE|$(date +'%-H:%M')|" $HOME/.config/openbox/menu-sed.xml
This a "24 hour" clock format, without leading zeros,...

Code:

To move files "copied" on clipboard (Konqueror/perhaps dolphin) to the place you're on a terminal, without navigating/browsing the folders on the file manager, one can use:

xsel -b | while read f ; do mv -i "${f#*file://}" ./ ; done

As "copied" files on Konqueror are registered on the clipboard as a list with "file://" preceding the path. Perhaps could be aliased...

Pyplate now uses WSGI instead of CGI

Posted 07-10-2014 at 01:09 AM by Pyplate

I've updated Pyplate again. This time the UI hasn't changed much, but I've done a lot of work under the hood. I've added a bunch of fixes which should make Pyplate much more secure.

I've also switched moved away from CGI amd updated Pyplate to use WSGI. This has made a huge difference to the page load time of dynamic pages. Performance with static pages hasn't really changed.

There's now a simple web server supplied with Pyplate. It's a little slower than Nginx...

Interesting "ask ubuntu" message related to swappiness tweaks

Runit or s6...

Posted 07-08-2014 at 11:33 PM by ReaperX7

To date, I've been working with Runit to introduce a new type of init system to GNU/Linux. In retrospect Runit has worked wonderfully minus some tedious bugs with partition dismounts.

Runit has worked wonderfully as an init and I can only hope that it keeps getting better than better. It's stable and is very unintrusive.

All it needs are a mountain of service scripts to fuel it and with a symlink to the proper directory, off it goes.
