This month, Dave Jones is coming to speak to us about a gem he’s built. Picture the situation: you’ve spent time at work crafting a perfect configuration for your editor of choice. You realise there’s some programming thing you want to play with at home over the weekend, but you haven’t updated your configuration at home in months. If you’ve ever tried to copy settings you’ve careful crafted on one computer to another, you’ll recognize the problems here. Do you email them to yourself? Commit them to a version control system you have access to in both places? Ah, but how do you configure your access to the version control system?
Dave decided that he wanted an easier way and a better way, so he built it. His solution may help you, and may also be the inspiration you need to write a tool to solve a problem you’ve been having. Seems good all around no?
