If you want to use RiotJS Custom Tags within a <table>, you might have stumbled upon something that looks like a bug. If you nest Custom Tags within a <table> element, they will not render within said element, but outside of it. Let me clarify with an example and how to fix it.

You can use templates for different types of capture items, and for different target locations.

The following code sets up three capture templates – for todos, media urls and code snippets (lines 4-7).

Spoiler: This post is primarily gonna be an excerpt of my bookmarks collection. That’s because more intelligent men than me have already written great articles on the topic of how to become a great Python programmer.

I will focus on four primary topics: Functional programming, performance, testing and code guidelines. When those four aspects merge in one programmer,...

Finding the perfect IDE for Python isn’t an easy feat. There are a great many to chose from, but even though some of them offer really nifty features, I can’t help myself but feel attracted to VIM anyway. I feel that no IDE accomplishes the task of giving the comfort of complete power over the code...

In this short tutorial, I’m going to show you how to scrape a website with the 3rd party html-parsing module BeautifulSoup in a practical example. We will search the wonderful translation engine dict.cc, which holds the key to over 700k translations from English to German and vice versa. Note that BeautifulSoup is licensed just...
