I rediscovered Alfred and I’m confused why I ever stopped using it in the first place. It’s a fantastic tool and so much more than an application launcher. If you already like the basic functionality you should consider buying the Powerpack extension to be able to make use of custom Workflows.
A beautiful reminder to live our lives in the present.
With every PHP update MAMP Pro adds an updated `php.ini file, so previous adaptations are lost after upgrading.
Interestingly, editing a specific PHP versions config file (via
File > Edit Template > PHP -> [Version]) doesn’t have any effect on MAMP’s PHP used on the command line. To increase the PHP limit to be able to work with Composer I did the following:
- Find the current
memory_limitvalue by running:
php -r "echo ini_get('memory_limit').PHP_EOL;“
- Find out which php-ini is currently loaded on the command line by running:
php -r 'phpinfo();' | grep 'php.ini'
- Update that config file
Rinse and repeat with every MAMP update.
When I impulsively re-subscribed to Spotify Premium last week it was for listening to and finding new music. All the more I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered a bigger-than-expected selection of audio books being available on Spotify these days. I found myself thinking about weather this could even justify canceling my Audible subscription and stick with Spotify for the long run (I’m not sure yet if I want to pay for both services on a constant basis).

I can’t even count anymore, how often I’ve tried working with another Editor than Sublime. Especially Atom has caught my attention quite a few times. But every time I tried to actually use it I ended up being frustrated and jump back to trusty old Sublime.
Of the difficulty to drop Day One
When I first heard of my Day One becoming a subscription service I – once again – started to reconsider how I want to keep my journal.
I’ve been using Day One for years and I’m really grateful for who they made regular journaling work for me. It’s hard to argue that whatever kind of journal system one employs: it’s worthless if you don’t actually use it. Continue reading
2017 was the second year I’ve spent Pentecost at the beautiful river Ardèche in Southern France. This was out first vacation with the VW van. Good times, looking forward to future trips. Continue reading
Just some notes I jotted down while managing a first Drupal 8 site entirely with composer.
When working on Drupal projects I usually need to set a static front page by referencing a Node’s ID. When working with different environments chances are high that Node ID varies from environment to environment.
Luckily we can easily override any configuration value in the settings file and thus have different values in
settings.php than in
settings.local.php. It’s simple as that:
$config['system.site']['page']['front'] = '/node/1';
