Command-C supports x-callback-url which I can use in Alfred workflow. I create an Alfred workflow called Command-C that contains basic custom actions to send clipboard from Mac to selected iOS devices. There are three types of supported actions in Command-C, but you’re likely using only the action that sends system clipboard.
Recently I’ve been working on a project we’re testing in Travis CI and we need to include some submodules referencing private GitHub repositories then run the tests on the combined code. Naturally Travis fails to retrieve the submoduled repositories, because it’s not authorised to do so. This is how we’re getting around that… Continue reading Testing repositories with private submodules in Travis
Last Friday I was honoured to be invited to speak about the Business of Open Source at the WordPress Bucharest meetup. Continue reading The Business of Open Source – at WordPress Bucharest
I’ve given this presentation at WordCamp London 2015, and last night at the Manchester WordPress User Group. Essentially the talk title is a trojan horse to talk about rewrite rules and regular expressions, without everyone running out of the room screaming because I put “regex” in the talk title. ;) Continue reading All about WordPress Web Addresses
Some notes from last night’s MWUG meeting. Something I don’t get along to often enough, as Mike has mentioned on occasion. :)

At WordCamp Europe 2014, I described how working with Open Source has enabled me to grow in business, and to grow my business. I talked about the tensions between Open Source and traditional business instincts, and shared how giving in to giving stuff away has powered my growth as a consultant working with WordPress.

This is the presentation I gave today at WordCamp Manchester, 2014. There’s an embed of the slides below, and you can also download the version with my (fairly verbose) speaker notes. Continue reading I have a dream, about development environments (presentation)
Today I noticed pieces of code to hook into a logger scattered throughout Gravity Forms, when I was trying to track down an issue. Here’s some quick and dirty code which hooks into the logging methods and writes to the PHP error log: Continue reading A quick and dirty logger for Gravity Forms
The first post in a series covering how we currently control our development environments at Code For The People.
Back in 2013 I had a dream. I wanted our team at Code For The People to work within a consistent development environment, which we could jointly outfit with tools and functionality to help us do our job better. I wanted us to be able to assemble resources, plugins and themes and code libraries, as we needed them. I wanted us to be able to easily develop and easily deploy. I wanted something which would allow us to engage freelancers, or even clients, and get them started on development without having to go through complex sysadmin procedures. I wanted us to be able to jump in and help each other at short notice.
I think we’re well on the road to meeting these requirements now, and so I’m due to write up the travails which have got us to this point. Continue reading I had a dream
