My Adventures with Jekyll

23 Jul 2013

I’ve decided to give Jekyll a try for posting some of my snippets of code, thoughts, and other work. This post is just here to get me started.

A random trick I pulled off today, that I’m sure to forget:

$ brew list emacs | xargs \
    pax -w -z -s ,$(brew --prefix),, \
    -f ~/Downloads/emacs-$(stat -f '%Sc' -t '%Y%m%d')-brewed.tgz

This created an archive of the Homebrew installed emacs package and I could then try to install it fresh from the git repo but restore the working version if it failed.

I’m sure that I will need this link to the Jekyll docs in the near future and maybe at some point, I’ll even have a commit in Jekyll’s GitHub repo.
