Simple Java/SWT class for image sprites. Quickly slice up a larger image into smaller ones, while preserving alpha transparency. Most of the existing examples out there don't handle alphas properly.

import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display;
* Simple class that demonstrates how to slice up regions of a sprite image in SWT, while preserving
* alpha transparency. There are shorter ways to do this if you don't care about alpha transparency.

Workaround to disable SWT full-screen mode on the Mac, to get around this nasty bug:
View gist:5009567
public static void disableFullScreen(Shell shell) {
try {
Field windowField = Shell.class.getDeclaredField("window");
Object window = windowField.get(shell);
invoke(window.getClass(), window, "setCollectionBehavior", new Long[] { 0L });
} catch (Exception e) {
log.error("couldn't disable full screen mode", e);

azhawkes / .htaccess
Created Jan 22, 2014
Apache mod_rewrite config to treat requests for /something as /something.html behind the scenes. Using this for a static Jekyll site because I don't want the .html extensions visible to end users.
View .htaccess
RewriteEngine on
# Automatically rewrite /something -> something.html
RewriteRule /(.*)$ /$1.html [L]
# Strip off .html extensions from the request and redirect
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.+)\.html$
RewriteRule /(.*)\.html$ /$1 [R=301,L]
