Emacs for Writers : Part 2

Refer to Part 1 here Here are various other tricks Jay talks about, in his presentation. org-bullets Makes pretty bullets in org-mode. spacemacs already comes with this package. No additional work needed. Off course, you can customize the bullets to your liking, but I am pretty happy with the defaults. notmuch for emails Jay doesn't show notmuch but makes a comment about it. I looked at it, but I think my use case is bit different.

Why did you speak ?

I came across this parable in the book, I am currently reading. It is a Marathi translation of Biography of J. P.

Once the prince was traveling thru the forest. He heard two birds “talk”. A hunter heard the sound, and immediately killed one of the birds.

Using ForeignKey in Abstract Base Class (SQLAlchemy)

I was creating an abstract base class containing FK, like this : 1 2 3 class MyBase(Base): name = Column(String(30)) fk1 = Column(Integer, ForeignKey('table1.id')) but kept getting the error : 1 2 sqlalchemy.exc.InvalidRequestError: Columns with foreign keys to other columns must be declared as @declared_attr callables on declarative mixin classes.

KeePass on the Web (KeeWeb)

Why is this interesting to me ? Since LastPass was acquired. I switched to Dashlane, which seems good, but there is this nagging feeling that Dashlane might stop the free version, or something. I had used KeePass long time ago. But the Problem is “syncing” KeePass Web solves (in theory) this problem by supporting Dropbox syncing “out of the box”. All I really need is backup.
