Hi, this is Allison Sheridan of the NosillaCast Apple Podcast, hosted at Podfeet.com, a technology geek podcast with an EVER so slight Apple bias. Today is Sunday, November 22, 2020, and this is show number 811. We’ve got a big show today because in Security Bits we had two Security Mediums. They were both really interesting and I learned a lot.
Because of that, I trimmed a couple of articles from this week’s show and moved them to next week so I can relax for the holiday week. But I want to give you a heads up about one of the articles you’ll hear next week because it has a time-sensitive element. I’m going to be telling you about an app called Folge which might be the replacement for Clarify that we’ve been looking for. I’ll explain a lot more, but if this pricked up your ears with interest, you may want to read ahead at the link to my article about Folge because it’s on Black Friday sale till the end of November. I don’t want to spoil it any more than that, and the normal price for Folge is probably still worth it, but go check it out if you want to jump on the sale by reading the article entitled Can Folge Replace Clarify for Making Tutorials?
Chit Chat Across the Pond
This week’s Chit Chat Across the Pond is an installment of Programming By Stealth, but you may have gotten the wrong episode in your feed. I accidentally put the wrong one in and fixed it about one minute later, but these darn podcatchers of choice are too fast and they may have picked it up before I fixed it. If you hear the wrong number, just delete the episode and ask your podcatcher to download it again and it should be sorted. With that, here’s what the show is about.
As we continue to learn Git from the command line for version control, Bart teaches us some tricks to travel through time. First he shows us how to view more compact Git logs so we can just see a shortened hash and the first line of our commit message. Then he shows us how to pick out a single commit from the past and see what changed. Then he shows us how, with surgical precision, we can go back in time and get a single file or even just the changes from a specific commit and bring them forward in time. It sounds head bendy but I could immediately see the usefulness of going back in time and grabbing some code that was working well and bringing it forward.
You can hear the podcast at CCATP #661 – Bart Busschots on PBS 106 of X — Time Travel with Git or in your podcatcher of choice.
You can read along as you listen with Bart’s tutorial shownotes at pbs.bartificer.net/…
