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:

Minimum Viable Async with Node 6

With the release of Node 6.0.0, the surface of code that needs transpilation to use ES6 features has been reduced very dramatically.

This is what my current workflow looks like to set up a minimalistic and fast microservice using micro and async + await.

The promise


How do I verify the Sapling MPC?

What you'll need

  1. Install the Rust compiler. A version from a year ago will work but the recent one is fine too.
  2. Download the transcript from the Powers of Tau MPC. (See the links here.)
  3. Download the params file from the Sapling MPC.
  4. Check out the attestations for the Powers of Tau MPC. (Similar can be found for the Sapling MPC but participants chose various ways to distribute their attestations, they have not been coalesced into a single repository.)
