Only first 1000 GitHub users according to the count of followers are taken. This is because of limitations of GitHub search. Sorting algo in pseudocode:

  .filter(user => user.followers > 1000)

Checkout github pull requests locally

Locate the section for your github remote in the .git/config file. It looks like this:

[remote "origin"]
	fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
	url =

Now add the line fetch = +refs/pull/*/head:refs/remotes/origin/pr/* to this section. Obviously, change the github url to match your project's URL. It ends up looking like this:

a simple git branching model

a simple git branching model (written in 2013)

This is a very simple git workflow. It (and variants) is in use by many people. I settled on it after using it very effectively at Athena. GitHub does something similar; Zach Holman mentioned it in this talk.

Update: Woah, thanks for all the attention. Didn't expect this simple rant to get popular.

Fibur is a library that allows concurrency during Ruby I/O operations without needing to make use of callback systems. Traditionally in Ruby, to achieve concurrency during blocking I/O operations, programmers would make use of Fibers and callbacks. Fibur eliminates the need for wrapping your I/O calls with Fibers and a callback. It allows you to write your blocking I/O calls the way you normally would, and still have concurrent execution during those I/O calls.


Say you have a method that fetches data from a network resource:

Want to find out what changes were introduced by a particular merge commit? Hey, so do I! ALL THE TIME. These aliases will do that.
View .gitconfig
# `git merge-log` shows the commits that were introduced in a given merge
# `git merge-diff` shows the actual changes that were introduced by a given merge
# Both commands accept an optional commitish; if ommitted, the last merge commit is used
merge-span = "!f() { echo $(git log -1 $2 --merges --pretty=format:%P | cut -d' ' -f1)$1$(git log -1 $2 --merges --pretty=format:%P | cut -d' ' -f2); }; f"
merge-log = "!git log `git merge-span .. $1`"
merge-diff = "!git diff `git merge-span ... $1`"
merge-difftool = "!git difftool `git merge-span ... $1`"
