Workflow Webcast - venam - 27-06-2016

Hello fellow nixers,

In the spirit of the June Events, I'm introducing the workflow webcasts.

The idea is simple:

Record a video of 5 to 10 min of you explaining your setup, how and why you use it this way.
Dig in the details as much as possible, make us feel like we're the ones using it.

The command I used
ffmpeg -f alsa -ac 2 -i pulse -f x11grab -s 1366x768 -r 15 -i :0.0 -acodec libmp3lame -vcodec mpeg4 -ar 48000 -qscale 0 -framerate 24 output.avi

Post your webcast/screencast here and I'll add it to the list in the main post.

This is a pretty sweet idea, its showing off your rice but taking it to the next level.

RE: Workflow Webcast - josuah - 09-07-2016

Here is mine!

I recorded the video without codec (avi format) and it was 12Gb! But my machine is slow, so it worked like that:

ffmpeg -f x11grab -r 25 -s 1366x768 -i :0.0 -vcodec huffyuv screencast.avi
ffmpeg -i screencast.avi -r 16 -filter:v "setpts=0.75*PTS" screencast.webm


It is quite unusual, I do it this way because I like to have things made simple, and only have each tool once:

Multiple vim windows in a terminal multiplexer within a window manager, with multiple computer screens -> window manager OR multiplexer, done! :P

EDIT: Forgot the most important: the dotfiles:

- .profile with the <code>a()</code> and <code>j()</code> functions:
- run script forked from dmenu:
- peax script that you could replace with slmenu, fzf or such:

Have 'run' and 'peax' in your $PATH and a() and j() functions in your path, and it should work.

PS: run can also be a r() function in the .profile

I just watched venam's. It looks much more mature, used from a longer amount of time, and he shew all its tools, which I didn't. So have a look at venam's too! :D

A pretty good setup: That is what you get while you write your own window manager.

[EDIT]: the links are now dead. See the bottom to see updated versions!

PS: Neural network color scheme... Oh yeah!

I'm updating this thread with the related podcast.
There's a surprise in this podcast.

I got behind on the podcasts, I have a backlog of stuff to do. But if this is forever an option I'd love to do it at a later time.

RE: Workflow Webcast - Halfwit - 02-08-2016

I attempted to record a decent version of a workflow webcast, but my son seems to know when I'm doing this - I will paste this for now, and in the future update to a better version, if and when I can record one.

RE: Workflow Webcast - acg - 18-09-2016

A bit late but here's a video to my workflow (no sound).

Also been trying to have my inbox as empty as I can and only leave some emails as reminders.

RE: Workflow Webcast - acg - 21-09-2016

here's another video, this time with audio on venam's request

excuse my english.

RE: Workflow Webcast - pranomostro - 22-09-2016

Cool! It's really nice looking through them.

RE: Workflow Webcast - josuah - 21-11-2016

albertocg: It is very nice! I did not see it before.

halfwit: These dmenu script are crazy! Do you have some of them available somewhere?

I'm making a follow-up of my webcast:

In the webcast, I tried to use only one terminal, with abduco sessions and shell jobs to keep organized.
I wrote a dmenu clone for the terminal in awk, and used it to select the sessions and jobs to attach to.

This month, I made a more serious dmenu clone for the terminal in C: iomenu. It is my first program in C. :3

It just filters lines, there is no fuzzy matching, I still want to implement space as wildchar like in dmenu.

I did a new shell script - buffer - to manage abduco sessions, combined with some dmenu_run.

[Image: NJS9hgw.png]

As you can see you can either attach to an existing session, or start a new one with a new command.

It then prompts you for arguments. Here you can write '+' at the end of a line to get prompted for a file path.

You can also call this script with arguments, and it will immediately run them without prompting.

Dependencies for this script:

- whatis: to generate the command description, with "buffer -w".
- stest: which comes with the dmenu source. You can compile it alone with "make stest" while in dmenu source dir.
- abduco: start and attach to sessions.
- iomenu

[PS]: Do not hesitate to rant on the source if you want, as it will help me learning. As well as do not hesitate to ask for XYZ feature, as I just may just not have the idea of doing it.

RE: Workflow Webcast - josuah - 22-11-2016

Silly me!

Everything from halfwit nicely documented in the dotfiles, of course!

RE: Workflow Webcast - venam - 31-03-2017

No podcast for this week, we'll keep the number at 42 (good number) until next week.

Let's relaunch this thing.

Here's a webcast I've just recorded:

...And here's the record command I used for anyone wondering.

Nice webcast! A pretty 'vanilla' setup

Why don't you try VimFX? Is there something against it?

I tried it and hated it. After having vimperator for so long it felt wrong.
Now I just settled with the default keybind, which is not that bad after you get used to it.

Can you explain this a bit more?

Exactly what someone in denial would sound like.

It's a totally different feel, not the same keybinds either.
One annoying example is following links through "f" which returns letters instead of numbers and the letters seemed to be assigned randomly and keep changing in the same page.

I didn't say it was *great* but it's not bad either.
