When I am working on a git repository and using the command line, one of the things that I often end up checking is which git branch I am on and if there are any pending changes. How awesome would it be if the bash shell prompt, told you the branch name if the directory is part of a git repository and if there are any changes. Well, thankfully someone has done this work already and with a little bit of configuration on your part, you can implement the changes.
When I am provisioning a new development virtual machine with vagrant, I do not need all of the Windows 8 modern applications such as bing maps, finance, skype, etc to be installed onto the virtual machine. These applications are nice on a non-virtualized machine but on a virtual machine it just uses extra resources that aren’t needed.
The base install of Windows has all of these programs installed with live tiles turned on that I don’t need. This is a huge amount of clutter in the start menu.
We will be going through 3 steps:
Sourcemaps bacically are a way to map the combined/minified file back to the original file. As part of the minification process you generate a source map which holds the information about your original files. The developer tools will then parse the source map and make it appear as though you’re running unminified and uncombined files.
