show all project code (a find-git-xargs example)

The following command finds all your project's Javascript files that aren't installed via NPM. It then does a "git blame" so you can see who wrote which bits of code, and how old the code is.

find . -path ./node_modules -prune -o -name '*.js' | xargs -n1 git blame --date=short --

If you're using OSX, install the GNU versions of the Unix tools

gfind . -path ./node_modules -prune -o -name '*.js' | gxargs -n1 git blame --date=short --

Those who don't understand Unix will be doomed to reimplement it. Poorly. :)

OSX: control-left/right moves by words in terminal

I use the three-finger-swipe to move viewports on OSX. Using control-left and -right to move by words in the terminal is VERY helpful!  Here's how to do it:

1) go into Preferences and disable control-left/right

2) add this to your ~/.bashrc file:

# control-left/right = skip by word in terminals
# https://apple.stackexchange.com/a/29037/100272
bind '"\e[5C": forward-word'
bind '"\e[5D": backward-word'
bind '"\e[1;5C": forward-word'

bind '"\e[1;5D": backward-word'

3) log out and back in to enable control-left/right to skip by words

Students learn a ton of webapp acronyms, and which are important.

Talk is now on Youtube!  Thanks to Wai-yin and Philosophie for sponsoring my being at the Coding for Product group.
