Modify Multiple Lines
November 20, 2019

BBEdit 13 still doesn't support multiple line edits. This makes it a bit challenging when you want to change a lot of text.

For example, if I want to add a bullet point to multiple lines, it would be time-consuming to add it.

Simple Solution

I found the easy way to do this is to:

  • Select the lines to perform the actions
  • Open the Search/Replace Dialog box Command - F
  • Then apply the following Search/Replace commands (See screenshot)

Search Replace Bullet

Here's a break down on what's happening:

In the Find:

BBEdit searching for all the content on the line from the start (^) to the end ($). Its saving the content to the matching group.

In the Replace:

On each line there will now be a dash. The (1) is the matching of the find command.

The key thing is to make sure that the "Search In:" has the "Selected text only" enabled.

Don't Forget to Save!

I would recommend saving this search query. This is done by click on the 'g' and select the "Save..." at the bottom.

I would recommend using "Add Dash to Each Line" as the name - so it will be easier to find.

Make Your Own Gluten Free Pizza
November 19, 2019

We are a big fan of the Gluten-Free pizza at UNOs. It’s really good and it’s a fun place to be

Catch the previous UNOs blog postings:

There's one cool thing that you can only get at Unos:

Unos Gluten Free Pizza

Make Your Gluten Free Pizza!

Did you know that kids can make their own Gluten Free pizza at Uno's? Yup, it’s true. Celiac kids are not left out of making their own Gluten-Free Pizza.

When ordering the kids “Make Your Own Pizza,” make sure to ask for the gluten-free crust.

When we ordered ours at the Unos in Westborough, Massachusetts, the waitress was very good at makings sure to clean her hands and prevent any cross-contamination. Anytime that we asked for something with the pizza, such as more cheese she would excuse herself to wash her hands before taking any actions.

The pizza came out great and my daughter was delighted with the whole experience. She loved the pizza and more excited to come back.

I think her only "wish" was for more topping choices - tomatoes and olives are some of her favorites.

GitHub Tips for QA
November 18, 2019

Here are four useful tips on using GitHub for QA:

Tags

If your company use tags, you should know about the Tags project page. It displays the latest tag and get the ability to download the tags.

https://github.com/project/tags

Releases

Find out the latest release and past releases with dates of deployment on the releases page. Not every project have project "releases" but those that do may have useful information here.

https://github.com/project/releases

KeyBoard Shortcuts

Learn some of the popular Keyboard shortcuts that are available on GitHub

Shift ?

Today I Learn: The fastest way to any GitHub Repository Wiki is to type in G W on any Repository page.

Use the Show All to view all the cool short cut options. (or simply go to the Keyboard shortcuts - GitHub Help page.)

View the Blame on Any File

Using the information from the previous tip, when looking at a GitHub file, if you type in b - you'll get modification information on that file. Perfect when you are debugging an issue and need to talk to someone about why a change was made.

One More Thing

Have you noticed that the Github search graphic is a perfect QA graphic:

Git Hub Search

I don't think it's realistic that people will be searching for bugs on GitHub.
