Schedule Into Org Mode

August 25th, 2011
emacs, org_mode, tech  [html]
I keep a public schedule on sccs, which I maintain with a script. To get this available in org-mode in the agenda view, I needed to:
  • modify the schedule script to create schedule.org in addition to schedule.ical.
  • set up cron on my laptop to automatically download it every 5min
  • tell org-mode about it:
            (setq org-agenda-files (list "~/todo.org"
                                         "~/schedule.org"))
            
  • tell emacs to automatically refresh files from disk when they update if I've made no changes to them within emacs (which I already wanted):
            (global-auto-revert-mode 1)
            
Now I see scheduled tasks in agenda-view:
Week-agenda (W34):
Monday     22 August 2011 W34

Your room can be as bright as the outdoors

The effect was huge: I became dramatically more productive between 3:30pm and whenever I turned off the light. I estimate the lamp bought me between half an hour and two hours a day, depending on how overcast it was.

git-subtrac: all your git submodules in one place

Long ago, I wrote git-subtree to work around some of my annoyances with git submodules. I've learned a lot since then, and the development ecosystem has improved a lot (shell scripts are no longer the best way to manipulate git repos? Whoa!). Thus, I …
