Parametric partial function creation
// I had this idea of implementing Scala-ish automatic partial function generation
// based on placeholders, and Clojure-ish positional and rest argument replacement
// in anonymous functions created with the shorthand syntax `#()`.
// In Scala, if you have an expression such as `doSomething(_ + 1)`, Scala will
// turn that into a function of one argument that evaluates to `arg + 1`. In
// Clojure, if you use `#()` to create an anonymous function, you can reference
// arguments with `%num` (e.g. `%1`, `%2`, etc). `%` evaluates to the first
// argument and `%&` evaluates to all arguments.

A short introduction to require.js

This is a small collection of scripts showing how to use require.js. It's only one of several ways of setting up a require.js project, but it's enough to get started.

At its core, require.js is about three things:

  1. Dependency management
  2. Modularity
  3. Dynamic script loading

The following files show how these are achieved.

Big list of http static server one-liners

Each of these commands will run an ad hoc http static server in your current (or specified) directory, available at http://localhost:8000. Use this power wisely.

Manage your PATH with a nice, one-directory-per-line file, rather than a gargantuan blob of colon-delimited text.
# Read the contents of ~/.path into $PATH, if ~/.path exists. ~/.path should be a file
# consisting of one path on each line, such as:
# ~$ cat ~/.path
# # vim: ft=sh
# ~/usr/bin
# /opt/local/bin
# ... etc ...
# Note that comments begin with a hash (#).
