Its Summer time!
So as summer begins that means that I am gonna be able to be able to have more time to work on projects but also to learn more things!
I currently have a few ideas of things I want to learn so what I want to do during summer is focus more on learning than on projects.
So blog posts will be a bit more about what new things I am learning rather than actual projects.
I am also thinking of making a new website where it will show all the different things I am learning and things that I want to learn.
Currently, I am learning about coding in C and particularly for the Amiga computer which I have mentioned before here New Year, New Language.
I am also learning about the Amiga computer itself and how it works and how to use it.
I also got the opportunity to work on it because of the Amiga Tool Jam which is a tool jam that is happening right now and I am participating in it where basically anyone from novice to expert can make a tool for Amiga computer and submit it to the jam.
There are also many categories of tools that you can make and submit to the jam which are:
A larger and more advanced piece of software with GUI.
Small pieces of software often without GUI and run from CLI.
Small executable which enhances system usability. Commodities are usually loaded at system startup. Many require no interaction and do not feature any GUI interface.
- Most Useless Tool
A tool that fixes a problem nobody has, or performs a completely pointless task for no good reason (and often extremely over-engineered). Example: A tool that tells you if your Amiga is powered on or off :) Have fun, and be creative!
ARexx scripts, Icon packs, Workbench wallpapers, etc. Basically, anything that doesn’t fit the other categories.
I currently have a few ideas of tools that I want to make for the Amiga Tool Jam and I am currently working on them.
Also, I was using my ndk website to learn about the Amiga and found a bug in the website where it wouldn’t show the whole AutoDocs
I found that occurred because the AutoDocs contained a lot of HTML tags and the website wouldn’t show them because it would think that they are HTML tags.
data = data.replace(/</g, "<"); data = data.replace(/>/g, ">");
What is an HTML entity?
An HTML entity is a piece of text that begins with an ampersand (&) and ends with a semicolon (;). HTML entities are used to display reserved characters in HTML. A reserved character is any character that has a special meaning in HTML. So to display a reserved character in HTML, you need to write an HTML entity instead.
There is also a website that you can use to find the HTML entity of a character which is made by Oinam at https://oinam.github.io/entities/.
Now it will correctly show the whole AutoDocs.
I am very excited to see what I will learn this summer and what I will make and I will be sure to keep you updated!
Hope you enjoyed this post and Thanks so much for reading :D
