Scrape thumbnails from slack
View slack_scrape.js
// Works with the "Workspace Directory"
// 1. Visit
// 2. Paste this code in your console
// 2a. If there are more members than fit on the screen, you must scroll the directory one screen at a time
// and paste the middle block for each screen-full.
// Then run the last line again to fill 'data'.
// 3. In console: JSON.stringify(data) and copy value. It will contain a map from the Slack username to image URL and
// a relative link to the pop-up with user details. I'm still working on retrieving those details.
// 4. Use this 'jq' script to clean it up (I will work on folding this back into the javascript).
// jq 'with_entries(select(.value.image)|{key,"value":({"image":(.value.image//""|gsub("url\\(";"")|gsub("[)\"]";"";"g")),"link"})})'

Manage POM versions in multi-module Maven projects
#! /bin/sh
# Usage:
# Update the version of every POM to the next patch version, append the git branch name and SNAPSHOT
# unless the POM already has a SNAPSHOT version.
# Thus, version 1.3.4 becomes 1.3.5-branch-SNAPSHOT.
# Requires xmlstarlet and maven versions plugin. Invokes maven as "mvn".
You can’t perform that action at this time.
