Keyboard shortcut to connect AirPods

This  alfred workflow is cool. I accidentally stumbled on this post today via Dustin and immediately ended up creating the workflow in Alfred.

I am bookmarking this for future to ensure I can use the apple script for other types of bluetooth devices I have :).

BTW if you aren’t using the Apple AirPods you should give it a try. I would definitely say they were my best purchase in 2017. They are so comfortable that I sleep with them sometimes and I wake up with them intact in my ears and I don’t even realise I had them plugged in my ears.  If you aren’t convinced here is a review by Sajib that you can read to convince yourself 🙂 .

Welcome 2018!

It has been a good couple of years for me. I am extremely thankful and happy for what I have and how far I have come. Sadly the blog hasn’t seen much during this time and hopefully I will work on it better this year. I don’t have a new year resolution to post X number of posts or any such thing. But I do have a framework of what I want to do this year. My one keyword for this year is going to be HABITS. I plan to work on creating a quite a few good habits or get rid of a few bad ones over the entirety of this year. The idea is to focus on one habit every month and stay disciplined to create that habit at the end of the month. Most of these are going to be about small minor wins to be had on a daily basis.
This month I am going to try to Read at least a page of book first thing in the morning, every day of January.

Gutenberg -project

Gutenberg

This is the first post I am trying to write using the Gutenberg plugin for WordPress. I am going to keep this short and sweet as I am testing it as well. You have to try this plugin demo understand the potential of this plugin. So far the demo is great. For a developer preview, this is mind blowing. These are very early stages of development and this looks very promising for the future of WordPress.

If you are a WordPress developer and you haven't tried to use this plugin to  test your plugins/themes, you should start today. It is pretty stable considering it is a developer beta release. 

You can get the plugin here. Don't go by the ratings on the plugin repository. The development of the plugin happens on github here and feel free to contribute to it.
