Project: Scanning for Meaning Site: scanning-for-meaning.travisshears.xyz Repo: gitlab Pics: menus collapsed menus expanded full-screen Revive Excited to bring my little over a year old art project, Scanning for Meaning, back to life today. The project comes out of this cyberpunk dream of living with these pixel waterfalls. Putting this project on a large screen and just letting the colors wash over the room excites me. It’s also an experiments in the “web app” as an medium for artistic expression leveraging the frontend development I was doing at the time.
Educational twitter bot that tweets about WWII era military cooking. Twitter account: @ArmyCookBot1 twitter account on launch day Army cooking bot like most of my projects came out of a mixture of artistic vision and ich to explore a new technology. I find twitter bots a compelling form of communication. This haze around what content is human authored, machine, or a combination of the two is a fun playground.
Dotfiles, sharing your Unix environment preferences since the dawn of personal computing. This week I was going through my dotfiles repo and cleaning up when I learned a few things. Ended up completely restructuring my repo and rewriting my sync script. Repo: https://gitlab.com/BTBTravis/dotfiles/tree/master Sync Script: https://gitlab.com/BTBTravis/dotfiles/blob/master/write.sh 120k dotfile repos on github One of the problems I faced how to split between mac and linux. I started with a separate branch for mac but after a while that became a complete mess as the sync script diverged.
Apparently pijul is the nerd’s nerd version control so natrally I had to try it out. I was attracted by the associative nature of the patches and the more pure implmentation of patch theory then the likes of git. Not wanting to install rust on my mac I came up with this docker workflow. I think the concept carries into trying many things out locally from dev tools to server side applications.
