Slowly trying to get back into making YT Shorts - I found out that VS @Code profiles now allow you to select a base language with some settings, snippets and extensions.
I'm looking forward to chatting with the person they hire for all things @pycommunitynews related -
The PyCon 2023 Videos are now live on YouTube
And we're live! We're talking about @thepsf board elections and more in today's live stream.
All this content around creating opengraph social card and then when I move all the images to azure to speed up the process, I end up not changing my endpoint in the template. 🤦🏾♂️
Let's try this link again - https://kjaymiller.com/blog/storing-my-opengraph-social-cards-in-azure.html
The first of #PyCon US tutorials from the Microsoft Booth is live and it was our most popular!
Check out @automationpanda talk about #Playwright with Python!
I really like that I can see my blog publishing via GH Actions without ever leaving VS Code now with the new GH Actions Extension 😎
Jacob is an amazing human that ceases to amaze me. I hope to one day be in a position where I can begin planning a life where I can be a benefit to more than myself and immediate family
Looking at Micro.blog for cross-posting. If this works as expected, this post should be on all the socials that micro.blog enables cross posting on, including itself and my website.
Disclosure: micro.blog is a current sponsor
Another great interview from @pycon for you to check out! Trey Hunner has an amazing gem for people attending conferences. It involves a deck of cards and your hotel lobby!
Did you know that 76% of PyCon attendees were there for the first time.
I was so happy that Aseda asked what I was doing and kindly agreed to do a super quick interview about her first trip to PyCon US and how it compares to other events she's attended.
I took the last couple days of my time at @PyCon to interview some folks. They are all available on the @PyCommunity News YouTube channel. Today I want to highlight my conversation with the author of "Automate the Boring Stuff with Python" @alsweigart.
Planning a bunch of content with Mustafa
Thanks to @jonafato for finding an RSS bug in Render-Engine
Working on my PyCon project with Aaron Wislang
New Short on creating snippets for VS Codes (Beginner)
Hey I'm giving a talk about dev containers right after I stopped at the container store this afternoon.
Testing this will work on wifi.
Speaking this weekend and hanging out at SoCal Linux Expo (SCALEx20).
Kinda ready for the "not having to be the person talking" stage of my career.
Testing Partial Collection Uploads Based on Git Diffs
New Gorillaz Album absolutely my favorite since Demon Days! It's so good!
Testing mobile push to microblog to website.
Sometimes finding THE solution isn't the answer because we don't always know what THE solution should be. Instead we should justify why a solution that we found is good enough until a better solution arrives...
We talked about this (kinda and also it's opposite) in Conduit Ep 42.
The best part fixing something is discovering a test you haven't written yet....
New Video 📹: I found this VS Code Extension to run tasks from the side bar. There was a minor issue with it but instead of trying something different, I found the fix and made a video (I also filed an issue and submitted a PR).
New Video 📹: I wanted to make a quick video showing how I add posts to micro.blog (Including this little post)
Writing this as a quick video to show how I'm using Drafts to add posts to my microblog.
Thanks Stephen for the recommendation!
Why do we keep belts that are too small. Now I have to hold my pants and a belt.
New Video: Django Software Foundation Accepting Applications for New Django Fellow!
Did some documentation updates for Render Engine. Really enjoying mkdocstrings.
Reminder: Not everything you do will traumatize your child... For everything else there is Therapy and you should probably apologize
Justification for microwave breakfast. If it's the most important meal of the day, something is better that nothing
RE: Billboard's 50 Best Rappers. It's not bad. It's not right but it's not bad.
Back on Things 3. Because,idk, MindNode supported it?
Check if melatonin + prylosec is just secretly meth
- [ ] a bad idea: start a podcast with big main character energy where someone reads your musings and you explain them.
- [x] drafts action idea. Create posts from your drafts by using the drafts metadata to create the frontmatter for your site.
The "Thai" Food was good but the heartburn wasn't 8/10
Your blog only supports posts one minute apart. Is a feature not a bug.
Don't publish at 3:36 what can wait until 8:00

Speaking Tonight at San Diego Python about adding plugin support to Render Engine (coming in the next major update).
Needing to test my youtube embed plugins, so here is one of my favorite covers
To the person that got me into pluggy You know who you are...
Thank you... Also you've given me a new hammer.
Another wild week of Render Engine Development. I wound up getting Pluggy working in render engine and now even have a plugin for pytailwindcss up and running and started working on another.
Another custom parser (probably the last one for now as I need to start working on other things).
Hello, Microblog Parser.
This is how I make these posts (Yes including this one!)
I've also added the README to the Extensions Section of the Render-Engine Discussions. I will hopefully be adding more of the content there.
One of my favorite people I've gotten to meet in the last year. https://www.blog.pythonlibrary.org/2023/01/16/pydev-of-the-week-tim-schilling/
In today's mental health corner. I've been feeling some overwhelm as of late and wanted to share a video that helped me a bit. I'll be fine, Just need to defer/drop some things and get back into the groove (hopefully talks on bicep, azd, and devcontainers can help realign my focus).
The talk I was most excited about giving didn't get accepted to PyCon US this year. That said I'm excited to be able to submit it to other places like JuneteenthConf and Refactr.Tech!
I'm loving my SSG right now.
Less than 100 lines of code to build out a site that uses on RSS to build out a wonderful landing page (while also hosing my blog and a microblog).
Just a reminder of how awesome shortcut detective is. I ran into an issue where I somehow mapped ⌘+w to another shortcut. I remembered this app from Irradiated Software. Still works for Big Sur (At least the intel chip one)
Two entries into my zshrc to make editing my two most edited config files easier on me.
``` " Quickly open my zshrc alias zshrc="nvim ~/.zshrc"
" Quickly Open my vimrc ~NOTE:
~/.config/nvim/init.vim is the default location for neovim (nvim)
" The default path for your .vimrc is ~/.vimrc
alias vimrc="nvim ~/.config/nvim/init.vim" ```
Don't know if I'll use tmux in the future again, but I'm sure I'll thank myself for having this tucked away. At least now it's not in my inbox.
These notes about how to improve in Hearthstone probably apply in other areas of life:
- Don't play distracted
- Think about what you did wrong each game (It will help in the future)
@pilotmoon I would love to see pop clip support a "Noguchi" style ordering (Last Used moved to the front) - https://twitter.com/kjaymiller/status/1123282125497585664
Now I'm starting to wish there was a recently used @draftsapp Actions group that does the same thing.
Testing new cached files allowed
I posted my first blog post on the Elastic Blog: How to create a video tutorial
David (A recent guest on the PIT Show) had an excellent conversation with Kourosh Dini about idea management.
It gave me some very NPR Productivity vibes.
Things I failed at tonight: - Working on Book - Getting Newsletter Post Written - Billable work that I need to finsh to get paid - Finish Scheduling Podcast
Things I did do: - Two Blog Posts - Lot's of Tailwind Changes to site - Couple of good tweets
Can I sleep now?
A new idea for a podcast I'm thinking of of is the AntiProductivity Show (Working Title) where I talk with folks that play with Productivity tools to discover the weaknesses in their systems. It's like a productivity show but honest.
I really wish that NvAlt(NvUltra) and Drafts allowed me to set keybindings so I could match them with my NeoVim Keybindings.
My brain always strikes the keys anyway now.
Moving the blog to tailwind so the site itself will be horrendous for a bit.
There are a bunch of great Duck Duck Go Bang Commands! Many that I've gotten used to!
This is an excuse to microblog more but I wanted to share these as a reasource! Let's start with the python list
I just published a couple of blog posts on the Render Engine Blog. They show a couple of things that I've been doing with my own builds and projects.
Update to the Bunch Alfred Package. Moved the calling of bunches to the CLI. Also changed the command from b to bunch (Of course you can always change it back).
Also now using Python to call the ruby package. Because of JSON formatting.
I've been working on the next feature for Render Engine – Pagination.
I do think this will be the last feature for a while. I really need to update docs and tests. I ran into many issues with this one.
Having fun writing docs for render engine.. Also it has a new home 🏠.
You can now support my developer work in PIT through GitHub Sponsors.
Sponsoring my work helps me build more tools I use to help developer creators.
Because I'm not one to expose myself to the arguments, I release my thoughts about Hey and why I'm just not that impressed. On the PIT Bonus Feed.
To listen join the Productivity in Tech Slack channel 24 Hour invite link
That's also what we call them. I have a long history of dating white girls. Now I'm happily married to one and we have a beautiful little light-skinned girl. I know the people that follow me don't have a problem, but I always feel obligated to let folks know I'm treat black folks that got a problem with that the same wy I do white folks...
And just like that if you already have the files that you are requesting, the quickstart will skip that step.
minor update to render engine. You can now quickly build your setup using
WARNING this will overwrite any
run.py that you have set up.
This should be fixed in some subsequent updates. That and a few other things.
Been writing more and more because of this. People have mentioned that they have enjoyed getting to know me through my posts.
Well, learn why I do ALL the things I do.
While I do transcriptions for podcasters as a part of my business, I wanted to share how I generate my base transcription files using AmazonAWS.
Render Engine v. 2020.5.5 is available with native search functionality. Documentation and blog posts added to task list.
My Netlify build is trying to load my building structure only because my repo has a
runtime.txt and no build options. I render content locally and have the output be the only thing that Netlify serves.
This started happening yesterday.
Put out a newsletter, they said. It'll be quick, they said.
Funny how you do a newsletter to avoid doing a bonus podcast episode just to do both and about 5 short blog posts all in one sitting..... lol.
Render Engine Minor Update:
I think I finally fixed the [render engine] feed.
Keyword being "think".
Also I've been working on a lot of things so I'll just drop this here. https://kjaymiller.com/projects
I defintely have an issue if this is how I'm naming blog posts...
Decided to make a little fun project with Python.
It would use
pendulum to give a list of times until the next occurance
of a date.
Not done yet, but there is some complexity to make it pretty intuitive.
Keep 👀's out for it.
Just the beggining but I now have a Coffee Page, that I hope to update regularly. ☕
Adding todos in my docstrings is a great way to manage things you want to do in your code without you muddying up your project manager.
Of course once you commit to working on them you should really add them to your trusted system.
Personal site is now using Conversation.JS from micro.blog!
I've been a long opponent of comments buts I think the MB community is wonderful (and strongly moderated) so I'm taking that chance.
Very Cool, but like 2 minutes into it. My head was really tired. Still a great #Ally tool for people that need it. May even use to scroll.
Been having woes with YouTube with my clients. I do wish there was an IndieWeb version.
I need a brain!! 🧠
Not sure which is more important.
- Fixing Bugs
- Writing Tests
- Writing Tests for Bug that I Need to Fix
- Writing Documentation
Another test. I will prolly delete these afterwards.
Testing Mobile Upload. Using Drafts and Shortcuts.
New Coffee Alert ☕ 🚨 PT's Coffee - Flatlander
Fixed a few issues wiht rss on my static site generator. I expect to be posting posting a lot more now. ^_^
Testing 1, 2, 3
Creating Rules around your life isn't a way to automate your life or make it mundane. In fact it's a way to ensure that you provide yourself the power and time to make the decisions you both want to do and need to do.
It's a way to prevent others (and yourself) from interfering with your plans.
