Markdown newline inside quote

Couldn’t understand why there are newlinen in my yearly review blog post from last year. So - in markdown, two spaces and then a line break create a line break.

So, like this:

Fine, no spaces Six, no spaces

Highlight to see spaces:

So, like this:  

> Three  
> Four  
> Fine, no spaces
> Six, no spaces

vim show trailing whitespaces

In connection to the above, yes. Updated ~/.vimrc with the following:

set listchars=tab:\:\ 
set listchars+=trail:◦

Looks like this:

vim CONVERSION ERROR - convert file to different encoding / save with other encoding.

For the above had to convert my ~/.vimrc to utf-8, not the default latin-1:
:w ++enc=utf-8

vim insert utf-8 characters

i3 keybinding to make a screenshot and put it into jekyll assets directory

This makes a screenshot as usual, opens it, opens the jekyll dtb assets folder, and puts the screenhsot name in the primary clipboard. I look at the screenshot, if I like it - I drag it directly to the folder, then use the vim/jekyll binding to insert it in the markdown.

bindsym Mod3+Shift+s --release exec scrot -s -e 'mv $f ~/s/screenshots && nomacs ~/s/screenshots/$f & echo -n $f | xclip -selection c && thunar ~/o/dtb/assets/pics/screenshots/'

echo -n is echo without newline (otherwise it gets fed to xc with newline appended). Added to ~/.config/i3/config.

Feels incredibly ugly and unstable but works for me I guess. Ideally it’s long enough to be replaced with a bash script, but not sure it’s worth it. But if I end up doing more of these, I’ll create a one custom big parametrized bash script that I’ll call like ./ screenshot.

vim jekyll binding to insert screenshot picture

map <leader>p i![](<esc>pa)<esc>0lli in ~/.vimrc

Inserts a picture with filename from primary selection, then goes back to the description. Used with new i3 screenshot keybinding from above. a in vim is “insert from next character”, so like A but with words.

I really do need to use a/e etc in vim more often.

camel / snake / kebab notation, note to self.

I seem to use more of-this-notation lately, instead of this_notation. Formalize this, not just for consistency, but to use this to my advantage - vim and company see these-words as separate, and this_word as one.

bash echo without newline at the end

echo -n doesn’t add a newline. Especially useful combined with xclip.
