During a super busy week this week the main server on the internal network died. This was bad, really bad.[...]
Just discovered that Transmit 3.7 has S3 support. You can manage it using the Advanced Preferences tab which you access by holding down the Option key while clicking on the Transmit application menu. From there you will see an extra preference tab where you can manage server connections and S3 settings. Now if they only added a tab for managing public keys for SCP/SFTP. For this you have to make sure your key is available @ ~/.ssh
A lot of Mac users have become familiar with a powerful text editor in the form of TextMate. It combines some of the power that is Unix with some of the cleaness that is OSX to give you an editor that could replace some IDEs. It has code snippets and macros made available via bundles that have been created by the community and cover over 30 different languages. You can use it for Flash development, even issuing "Test Movie" commands from TextMate.
Being a member of the Adobe user group management community has its perks. It's a really diverse group of extremely intelligent and gifted individuals that don't mind sharing their time, talent and wisdom and this helps keep the user group community thriving.
This is a pretty sweet combination. TextMate
has been my favorite text editor on the Mac for a while although I must confess that I hadn't been taking advantage of all it's features. Through "bundles"
, you can transform TextMate from an ordinary editor into a complete development environment.
is a cool little app that extends the usability of your Apple Remote. Just download, install, add your application (pretty much any app), map the remote keys to what you want to happen and you're done. Took about 5 mins to remote enable a custom app that I'm building and that's pretty sweet!!
I know I said last time I'd talk about Flex Builder installation but I figured this might be a better topic for discussion since it allows you to tap into the power of the command line. I'm talking about ffmpeg
installation. Basically, this tool lets you convert a video from one format to another. There's a lot more to it than that but that's all we're interested in on today...
So, here's the steps to get ffmpeg
up and running on Ubuntu:
1. Open up the terminal
Now that the dust is settling, I can continue evolving my development environment. One of the top items on the list was setting up an Ubuntu VM for Parallels. Here's what worked for me:
1. Downloaded Ubuntu Desktop 7.04
2. Created a new Parallels VM w/these options:
a) Custom Install
b) Linux OS
c) RAM 512MB
d) HD 10GB Expanding
e) Shared Networking
