Advice on structuring my Github repos?

I'll make some tooling or something to make this process of opening the right thing easier.

 

The library has built-in commands to open the log file or the cache directory. You know this.

Some people genuinely do ask for help and don't know what's better.

 

And I enjoy helping such people, so they don’t need help the next time.

 

But you always do. With the same things over and over again.

 

You've been studying CS at university for a few years now. How can you still not figure out that a simple shell script doesn't work because the file it's trying to read is in a different directory?

Dropped out. CS and education didn't go well. Was depressed for a bit due to it. Also got fired from a job 4 times because I can't program well enough. Doesn't phase me though, I still want to learn. 

 

* the 4th time was because of corona virus and https://rekki.com (app for chef and suppliers) doesn't like corona.

Just rememebered. Went to https://github.com/deanishe/awgo searched `magic` and was linked to https://godoc.org/github.com/deanishe/awgo#MagicAction still trying to find what the magic keyword thingy was that I had to type. Will read more docs.

Thought it would be easier as I didn't touch awgo in a while.

I'm sorry to hear that :(

 

It's your problem-solving skills that need work, not your coding. You're much too quick to ask for help with things you shouldn't need help with.

 

BTW: It's "faze", not "phase". Odd word.

I just never want to piss off @deanishe😱 

 

It's just a game we play. Niki asks me something that I've explained to him repeatedly, and I get annoyed that he never remembers.

 

I think this is the first round we've played this year, so you've probably not seen it before.

Ha, no — I've seen it. I'm joshing though. I understand your position @deanishe as a core community contributor here. I know that suffering fools is challenging, but it's tough when you are a fool (such as myself) and being fearful of playing the role of the fool on the way to obtaining mastery.

 

There's ignorance and there's laziness, and stubborness in either affect is frustrating.

 

Not that I know either of you well, but of course I've also observed you both on this forum, and you're quite idiosyncratic. @nikivi tends to think out loud, sharing each of his thoughts as they arise; @deanishe I think you probably need to make a bot that autoresponds to @nikivi's questions if his long-term memory has hiccups.

 

Still, since I haven't taken any CS and I'm still interested in learning to code my Workflows since it seems like my work would be far more useful/powerful if I did, I appreciate seeing you two parry so I don't have to be the one always asking noob questions. 😉

I wouldn't give someone grief for asking a noob question. Only for asking it over and over again.

AFAIK, Niki is the only regular poster who has.

 

But we do have some alumni who'd never coded in their lives before they wrote an Alfred workflow and are now professional developers.

Also sorry @chrisfor making a mess of your nice question.

 

Then don’t make a mess. There are twelve unnecessary posts—all yours—on the first page of this thread (and they are the reason there’s a second page). You post too much too often and it seems to be getting worse. You make new posts like other people make paragraphs.

 

That’s annoying for other users because we get an absurd amount of avoidable pings and your question is all over the place. You’re making more work for us to help you, which is unreasonable and works against you.

 

Pause before you submit a reply. Make sure everything is in there. If you need to add something to a thread but the last post is yours and it was made in the previous two hours, edit it instead.

Which is compounded by posting to a forum like if it were a chat.

 

It’s not that you (@nikivi) can’t figure out the answer, but that you don’t think about the question before asking.

Not enough. Don’t ask unless you’re able to describe what you’ve tried and how it didn’t work. Many answers will come to you during this process and you won’t even need to post (rubber ducking is real; use it). If you haven’t tried anything, you haven’t thought about the problem.


Slow down. You’re trying to go faster than you can manage, which is why you always crash and get stuck. Go slower and you’ll reach farther.

Thank you both @deanisheand @vitor. Got a little too excited yesterday trying to develop workflows together. And I agree, I might be a little too used to instant messaging to separate posts into one big paragraph and one message. 


Thanks again.

 

Going to read AwGo fully and make sense of it. I think it should answer all the questions I have. Might try to implement a basic version of AwGo in Swift too for learning purposes.

 

I am also developing an Alfred app for iOS that I hope to release soon. The idea is to host workflows in JSON format on the cloud and build an iOS app to search over the same Alfred JSON in a nice native iOS app experience. Ideally you could host the workflows on device but iOS is a bit more closed down than macOS to allow it so will do it this way first. 

 

I specifically want to transfer https://github.com/nikitavoloboev/alfred-web-searches and https://github.com/nikitavoloboev/alfred-my-mind to work off my iOS device as workflows.
