Vim and Arduino

24 September 2015

The Arduino IDE is, honestly, pretty good. It's easy to set up, and it works reliably. After years of Eclipse, I can't ask for much more. But I really, really like vim, and I figured it would be easy to find some command-line build tools and maybe a vim plugin.

Pike - Asset Pipeline and Make Tool

04 June 2014

I was building a website recently and I decided to use coffeescript and less, just to try them out. Since I am deeply in love with Pyramid, I was using Python on the backend. Turns out, webassets is the only decent choice for compiling web assets in python.

A Pyramid Extension that Everyone Needs

04 March 2014

I love Pyramid. It's an incredibly modular, extensible, and minimalist web framework that's built for all sizes of web applications.

It's a plugin-based framework, rather than the 'batteries-included' style of Django.

27 February 2014

25 February 2014

There comes a time in every engineer's career when they are faced with the question: "How the f#@% am I going to deploy this application?". Don't worry, that's normal. You might find yourself using coping mechanisms like git pull and scp, but sooner or later the problem must be addressed.
