Unfurl | Definition of Unfurl by Merriam-Webster - “expand, extend, fan (out), flare (out), open, outspread, outstretch, spread (out), stretch (out), unfold”

Fastmail calendar

Things I love so far:

  • Can move/change single recurring events without issues, asks whether to do it for one or all of them only when I use the “Edit” button! Things I miss:
  • Ability to “copy” an event in another calendar. Though I consider the need to do this an antipattern, and maybe I’ll find a workflow where I don’t need to do this often.

das Teufelszeug - appalling/hellish/infernal stuff (heard at work)

python console vim editing mode!

I so missed this. Adding to ~/.inputrc this line:

set editing-mode vi

makes all readline programs use vi mode, including Python interactive console. Wow.

Alternatively, this apparently works too when typed into python console:

import readline
readline.parse_and_bind("set editing-mode vi")


Athame (readline replacement with complete vim support)

ardagnir/athame: Full vim for your shell (bash, zsh, gdb, python, etc)

One can install it in place of the usual readline locally or globally.

Installed for zsh, now I can use ci( bindings again!

  1. Standard python interpreter has a vi command mode? - Stack Overflow ↩︎
