FCC, React-Redux and gitlab pages

I really love FCC. It helped me getting confident with Javascript, HTML and all that, and although I do it slow pace I got to two certifications yet and it’s fun and all… But. Sometimes there are buts. I worked through the React and Redux part of the frontend libraries which was really also nice, but it left me back somehow confused, because trying to start the projects of that section I found out: Read more

Cannot Run SSH Askpass

This kept me busy a while tonite, stupid me. I use QT Creator for a little Qt project. And of course I wanted to make use of git to push my changes to gitlab (I hardly use github any more).

Hugo & XML parsing

Sometimes fatigue strikes. And sometimes you can’t do what you wanted to. Like yesterday, when I wanted to concentrate on Regex in the FCC curriculum but only could do a hand full of exercises till my eyes fell shut. New try today, but I first looked at my newly created XSD and made some minor improvements, like allowing it to contain no data yet but a name tag and moving an attribute to another tag where it makes more sense… There certainly is a structured way to get these things straight but bear with me, I’m only learning.
