Managing Localized Language Websites, ReFreshingly Easy — August 7, 2016

Managing Localized Language Websites, ReFreshingly Easy

We recently updated most of the localized language websites of Freshdesk. But it wasn’t just an upgrade on the design front. Our aim was to build a robust and scalable system to efficiently manage translations. Now, if I say that I could get a new language website live in under 15 minutes, would you believe it? (Yep, you should!)

Here’s what we did. Continue reading

How to automatically reindent code with Sublime Text 3 — May 11, 2015

How to automatically reindent code with Sublime Text 3

Sublime Text 3 is one of the most popular text editors across platforms. Although a boon for a developer, it lacks a default keyboard shortcut to reindent code automatically. But the good news is, you can create your own key binding for it.

For Mac OSX, Linux, and Windows users, the keybindings settings file can be found under the menu Preferences > Keybindings - User.

Add a JSON object that includes your key(s) and the Sublime Text command. The available key names are listed in the Sublime Text documentation (see the Key Names section).

The general pattern for your settings object looks like this:

[ { "keys": ["KEY(S)"], "command": "COMMAND"} ]

To add a shortcut for automatic indentation, add the following line to the Keybinding:

{"keys": ["command+shift+i"], "command": "reindent", "args": {"single_line": false}}

Voila! Press command + shift + i to automatically reindent your code!

The story behind the YouTube hit “Emptiness” — June 26, 2012

The story behind the YouTube hit “Emptiness”

First of all, Emptiness is one of the very few Indian songs which created a sensation in the YouTube.

The story cooked up in the video’s description is as follows:

Rohan Rathore was an IIT Guwahati student, who was suffering from Cancer. He was in love with a girl named Supriya more than anything in his life. But, Supriya refused him only because he was suffering from Cancer. Then, Rohan sung this song for his love, Supriya. But, the bad part is that, after 15 days of recording this awesome song, he died.
“May Rohan’s soul Rest In Peace!

Sounds convincing but, when checked with some IIT Guwahati students it was found out that the story is completely FALSE! Continue reading

How to download YouTube videos on Mac using Safari? — June 24, 2012

How to download YouTube videos on Mac using Safari?

If you’re using Safari, there’s an easy way to download YouTube videos.

  1. Open the page with the movie and press Command-Option-A, which shows the Activity window. [If you’re also loading other sites, you’ll see a list of them: scroll until you find the YouTube page and click on the arrow to show details about what is being loaded]
  2. You will certainly notice an element whose size is over 0.5MB (most of the time, over 5MB). Double-click on it (even if it is still loading), and Safari will download it.
  3. When the download is over, navigate to the file in the Finder and add the extension .flv to its name [if it doesn’t have an extension by default].
