# NOTE: These instructions do not represent a robust, self-troubleshooting install; they
# are definitely not suitable for dumping to a giant script and running as one. If you
# use them, they should be run one at a time, with an eye out for errors or problems
# along the way.
# The #1 issue you are likely to encounter is with Homebrew or Python packages whose
# binary components link against system Python. This will result in runtime segfaults,
# especially in rviz. If you suspect this is occurring, you can attempt to remove and
# reinstall the offending packages, or go for the nuclear option--- empty your Cellar
# and site-packages folders and start over with brewed python from the beginning.

Declare on your main init that all other init methods should call. It's a nice additional semantic warning. Works with Xcode 5.1 and above. Not tested with earlier variants, but should just be ignored. A reference to this macro shortly appeared in…

Whiteboard Picture Cleaner - Shell one-liner/script to clean up and beautify photos of whiteboards!

The script is here:

convert "$1" -morphology Convolve DoG:15,100,0 -negate -normalize -blur 0x1 -channel RBG -level 60%,91%,0.1 "$2"

This is a guard that tracks down UIKit access on threads other than main. This snippet is taken from the commercial iOS PDF framework, but relicensed under MIT. Works because a lot of calls internally call setNeedsDisplay or setNeedsLayout. Won't catch everything, but it's very lightweight and usually does the job.You might n…
