This is a plain-text version of Bret Victor’s reading list. It was requested by hf on Hacker News.


Highly recommended things!

This is my five-star list. These are my favorite things in all the world.

A few of these works have had an extraordinary effect on my life or way of thinking. They get a sixth star. ★

Compress & Encrypt to Disk Using OpenSSL in Bash Without Exposing Password
View compress_and_encrypt-no_exposed_password.txt
#
# This is the simplest and cleanest way I've come up with for securely compressing (gzip, in this example) & encrypting data to disk with OpenSSL from a bash script without exposing the password to inspection of process or environment variable using `ps` and the likes. Naturally, `cat` is just used as an example so the data can come from anywhere. If the compressed data is to be sent via email instead of written to disk, don't use '-out' and use '-a' to base64 encode the compressed data.

Complete Google Drive File Picker example
View 1_README.md

Google Drive File Picker Example

This is an example of how to use the Google Drive file picker and Google Drive API to retrieve files from Google Drive using pure JavaScript. At the time of writing (14th July 2013), Google have good examples for using these two APIs separately, but no documentation on using them together.

Note that this is just sample code, designed to be concise to demonstrate the API. In a production environment, you should include more error handling.

See a demo at http://stuff.dan.cx/js/filepicker/google/

`module.exports =` and ES6 Module Interop in Node.js
View interop.md

module.exports = and ES6 Module Interop in Node.js

The question: how can we use ES6 modules in Node.js, where modules-as-functions is very common? That is, given a future in which V8 supports ES6 modules:

  • How can authors of function-modules convert to ES6 export syntax, without breaking consumers that do require("function-module")()?
  • How can consumers of function-modules use ES6 import syntax, while not demanding that the module author rewrites his code to ES6 export?

@wycats showed me a solution. It involves hooking into the loader API to do some rewriting, and using a distinguished name for the single export.

This is me eating crow for lots of false statements I've made all over Twitter today. Here it goes.

## CHECKING HEADERS AND CERTIFICATE
# curl headers
curl -Iv https://example.com
# check certificate
openssl s_client -connect www.example.com:443
## FIXING FILES PERMISSIONS
# Remove Mac OS X Desktop Services Store files
find . -name ".DS_Store" -exec rm {} \;
# If you accidentally chmod -R 755 on everything revert files to 644
You can’t perform that action at this time.
