Just switched from rbenv to chruby using this guide, and my zsh startup time improved by about 10 seconds. I’d been meaning to debug why it was taking so long — bonus!
Here’s the offending lines that were removed from ~/.zlogin:
eval "$(rbenv init -)"
Internet-connected devices are increasingly supplied without a USB tethering option. While I presume this cuts down on manufacturing complexity and improves form factor, the wifi setup user experience is often terrible.
I recently acquired a FitBit Aria scale which has the completely undocumented quirk of only being able to connect to 802.11b wifi. My router defaults to n. I had to dig through the router settings and enable dual-band. There is absolutely no way a muggle would ever figure this out.
To compound the issue, their activation API was suffering a bug that returned a cryptic JSON error when using a Mac or iOS Safari to register the scales. I have no Wintel, so I finally got it working using iOS Chrome.
Googling revealed loads of posts by angry consumers who had returned the product as defective. I wonder how much this poor design choice cost FitBit’s bottom line? Omitting a USB setup option might have seemed clever but it backfired badly – perhaps it would have been fine if their wifi onboarding experience wasn’t so flawed.
And after enabling dual-band support on my router my Kindle Paperwhite would no longer connect to the wifi network. I had to manually enable WPS discovery mode on the router to pair it again. Oy!
It seems that byobu triggers a known bug with tpm which then fails to load any plugins. Fortunately there is a simple fix, in byobu’s .tmux.conf change your plugin formatting like so:
set -g @tpm_plugins ' \
If using the XDG directory convention, this line is also needed in .tmux.conf:
set-environment -g TMUX_PLUGIN_MANAGER_PATH "~/.config/byobu/plugins/"
So it looks like MacOS Sierra broke pbcopy/pbpaste for tmux. This manifests as clipboard errors when using netrw/vinegar in neovim under tmux. (Dunno why netrw is writing to the clipboard but anyways).
The solution is to use Homebrew to reinstall a patched version of reattach-to-user-namespace:
brew uninstall reattach-to-user-namespace
brew install reattach-to-user-namespace --with-wrap-pbcopy-and-pbpaste
Although this was annoying, it did lead to running brew cleanup which reclaimed 3.8GB of disk space. Jinkies!
When using the plugin plantuml-syntax, add the following one-liner in .vimrc to render a PNG in the current directory when ‹leader›e is pressed:
autocmd FileType plantuml nnoremap e :!java -jar ~/bin/plantuml.jar -o %:p:h %
This assumes Linux and that plantuml.jar lives in ~/bin. If working from a Dropbox directory, the image can then easily be viewed in a web browser.
It seems that byobu‘s defaults don’t play nice with emacs, eating important key sequences such as <C-h> and breaking color schemes. Adding the following line to ~/.byobu/.tmux.conf fixed the issue:
set -g default-terminal "screen-256color"
