I want to document more what I have been learning throughout my days. Even as someone who writes code for 10+ years there are many new things every day that we stumble uppon.
I want to share some of those with the great dev.to community.
Here we go, two rather unrelated things:
Working with GitHub apps can be cumbersome. You have to set up a local tunnel and trigger the outgoing events using their user interface. Even though some tunnelling provider (is this a term?) allow you to replay it through their interface it can be tricky.
Today I learned that every GitHub app has a log with the full outgoing requests. Those requests include headers and body.
The request are found in your app settings under the advanced tab.
Now I can replay things with curl and no tunnelling setup from a local file.
curl -X POST "Content-Type: application/json" -d "@githubwebhookpayload.json" 'http://localhost:8080/webhook'
If you run a static website powered by jekyll jekyll-compose makes your life easier. Work on blog posts and pages becomes more natural as you handle the drafts away from your actual posts.
Create a new draft:
$ bundle exec jekyll draft "Today I Learned #1"
This will create a new file in the
_drafts folder. Once you finished writing and editing you publish the draft:
$ bundle exec jekyll publish _drafts/today-i-learned-1.md Draft _drafts/today-i-learned-1.md was moved to _posts/2018-09-21-today-i-learned-1.md
That's it for today, keep on learning new things every day. 🤓
