Vi Text Editor

The Vi (and its successor Vim, for Vi improved) text editor for Unix, GNU-Linux, and Mac OS X systems is a way to edit text files, including configuration, PHP, or HTML documents, through the command line interface. This includes, of course, using SSH to connect to a server.

To use it with even a minimum of efficiency, though, you need to know a fair number of its cheat codes– err, keyboard shortcuts.

These are resources the Agaric Designe Collective found useful (when we started out, now of course we can type sonnets and ASCII art on the command line in our sleep).

Transfer files from local computer to server

From the Agaric sysadmin:

On the command line, in the directory of the file you want to send:

ftp
open
(enter username + password)
bin
(navigate to the destination directory using cd )
put
quit (or exit)

That's all.

(Don't think this works if FTP isn't set up yet, though. May be a pure SSH way?)

keywords: Mac OS X Terminal upload to server, download linux shell command server local computer

SCI Dorchester

http://scidorchester.org/

Social Capital Inc. president David Crowley described the site this way:

a new community website with a searchable, customizable database of community services in Dorchester; blogging tools for individuals and organizations; a calendar of events; and an open space to post anything to have to do with Dorchester--maybe your favorite restaurant or tip for avoiding Dot Ave traffic.

The entire project is similar to one which Agaric Design Collective is helping in Natick, http://mynatick.org/

Update Taxonomy Terms code snippet

/* drupal taxonomy term conversion script by Agaric Design /
/
In some cases an older vocabulary may be replaced with a newer vocabulary. This script can help you replace terms from the older vocabulary with terms from the newer vocabulary. You'll have to create the association yourself, and put it in the form of an array as shown. /
/
keywords: convert category categories database vocab vocabulary terms
change taxonomy term tid
this might also be useful for splitting or merging vocabularies */

Devel module and running PHP code

The Devel module (meaning development or developer, but just Devel) has the secret (that is, not well documented) ability to let you run PHP code directly, within the Drupal system, without first creating a node or a page to wrap it.

The textarea box for running code once you enable the Devel module (and give yourself permissions if not logged in as user 1) appears at the bottom of every page.

This can be useful for quickly using code snippets such as Agaric Design's Update Taxonomy Terms code snippet.

Everything CVS (data dump)

This has not been edited for human consumption: it's just a dump of every browser tab open for research into doing some more advanced work with the version control system CVS, which is the default for the Drupal project. Even some SVN stuff may have snuck in here. These notes are very much for Agaric's internal use!
