So I got to thinking today… What if my notes were all searchable on Google? To a degree, they already are. They’re on Github, but there is a heckin’ limitation: My learning is not linked!
Take this post, for example. This is about three different things:
- vim - Quick way to edit files without any fuss or muss. Edit anywhere.
- bash - I use a quick bash script to edit the correct notes file, based on date and title.
- jekyll - This site is built with Jekyll, a static site generator.
But how can I find all of my posts about C#? Jekyll gives me tags! All of the posts about a specific topic are gathered by tag. Now, I can have a single click I can share with everything I know about a topic. Or all the topics I have learned. 👍
Ok, that’s all good, but it is a lot of work to find the right file to edit and start editing, right? Nope! Bash to the rescue! Attached is the script, but can check for updates in my dotfiles repo.
