For anyone that might be interested. I'm doing a stream tomorrow at 2pm UTC about Scala Development in Vim with Metals. I'll be going over the Vim extension in detail and answering any questions people might have about Metals. Feel free to tune in if you are interested!

I think I'm dealing with burn out for the first time ever. For the last few weeks I've had about 0 desire to code or work on anything.

63,472 minutes logged since I've starting tracking my time in the beginning of 2018. It's crazy to look back at all this time.

In other news, I've still been working a ton on Metals, and doing what I can to improve the Vim experience for Metals users. I recently started a guide and plugin to use Metals with the built-in LSP support of Nvim nightly.

I haven't been around much. Hey everyone.

Unpopular opinion, GitHub has improved so much over the last 6 months, and I think the collaboration you can get on there is unmatched. Everything else feels like 10 steps backwards.

I'm sort of surprised how strongly the actions of a few ripple through the entire town.

If you want usage statistics on a site, but you refuse to use Google Analytics, what do you use?

I've been pretty quiet / busy lately, but I've been finding bits of time here and there to slowly redo my wiki. I've had my previous one for over a year. It's much simpler than my current site, doesn't contain any JS, and I'm finding myself much more satisfied with it. It's generated with a mixture of Markdown and a couple scripts written in Scala. Excited to get this finished soon.

We had a huge Metals release yesterday. Tons of new features added and a lot of small improvements. I'm super proud of this project and feel really privileged to be a part of it.

Still been hacking a ton on New features include an embedded Doctor, supporting more LSP client commands, and better statusline integration.

So happy to be on break for the next couple weeks. Some much needed rest, time to work on personal projects, and time think about what I'd like to focus on in this upcoming year.

What are some of your favorite open source projects that you think have a spectacular readme?

The law of user focus

When designing a program, one should first think about how to make an intuitive and powerful program. Implementation issues should only be considered once a user interface has been designed.

Been working hard on getting this out the door. This will automate the Metals installation and offer a bunch of helpers for vim users.

It's been a while since I've been able to work on my time tracker. I've wanted to port it over to Scala for a while now, and tonight I was able to finish up the last couple commands and add my first entry with it from the Scala version.

I store my logs in Mongo with this format btw.

Today I used xxd, which I never knew existed. I wonder how many command line utilities must exist that I don't know about and will probably never use.
