If you thought that ReSharper (R#) is putting your Visual Studio on stereoids then what do you thing about extending R# capabilities using R#-plugins?
I just added a bundle of them …
This is quite a common question – YSlow? So this nifty Firefox plugin can help to analyze how to improve the client/user experience of web-applications. It acutally integrates into Firebug and gives you some hints on what you might want to consider to improve your site.
Although this is nothing complete new, but these are things we might tend to forget from time to time.
Updating Firefox to a new version is always causing some headache – usually because most of your addons don’t work anymore.
You could of course look at all the installed addons on the web, on what version of Firefox they claim to support, bus that’s just a PITA.
Or you check out the Add-on Compatibility Report 🙂
Seems like every piece of XML-code I recently write (mainly for WiX and MOSS these days) needs just about a dozen of GUIDs all over the place – well maybe just a bundle :=) … anyway!
guidgen.exe is a lot of help, but it’s also kind of a PITA to leave the keyboard, grab the mouse, do the clicking … in this time you could think of a new GUID yourself! So there must be a better way – and there is!
Just create a simple macro returning a new GUID – and you’re all set.
- start a new macro-project, maybe rename the default-module to something more appropriate
DTE.ActiveDocument.Selection.Text = System.Guid.NewGuid().ToString("D").ToUpper() to grab a new GUID
- assign the newly created macro a keyboard shortcut (tools\options\environment\keyboard) –
ALG+G seems to be pretty intuitive
- ready to roll the GUIDs
