Hide desktop items on Mac

This terminal command will hide everything on your desktop, so it doesn't give you anxiety 😅

It doesn't actually delete the stuff on your desktop, it just hides it. You can still access the items by going to your Desktop folder in Finder.

defaults write CreateDesktop -bool false;killall Finder

And to show them again, you can do this: defaults write CreateDesktop -bool true;killall Finder

Git: push dev branch, merge into master, push master to origin, go back to dev

I use this command super often, basically whenever I want to push a new feature for KanbanMail to production. It pushes my dev branch, goes to master, merges my dev branch, pushes it, then goes back to my dev branch. Here my two main branches are called master and dev, but you could change it to whatever you want.

git checkout dev && git push && git checkout master && git merge dev && git push && git checkout dev

Quickly create images for social media and SEO

I use Pablo for quickly creating a properly sized image for Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and search engines.

It's not as full featured as an image editor, but that is the point. You just search an image from Unsplash, add a heading and/or caption, and an optional watermark. Download the image and set it up in your meta for articles.

Use Netlify for a free and simple URL shortener

I use Kent C. Dodd's netlify-shortener tool to setup a free URL shortener on Netlify.

It works by updating a _redirects file in your repository with a CLI command, so I can type shorten my-short-name and it will deploy and copy to my clipboard.

It's also possible to create a web interface for this as well, but will take a bit more time to setup versus the few minutes with netlify-shortener.

Feel free to look at my URL shortener repo to see how few things are needed to get it working:

You don't need to copy and paste the key to the machine you want to connect to another. All you have to do is generate your key and then type this command on the terminal:

ssh-copy-id <username>@<ipaddress/host>

You will be prompt to type in the username password and then the key will be copied, you can now log into the machine by using the command ssh <username>@<ipaddress/host>
