• Learn how to create your own lightweight and portable Vagrant base box. For this tutorial I’ll be creating a base box for Ubuntu Server 13.10 (64bit) running on VirtualBox 4.3.6. Vagrant is at version 1.4.1 at the time of this post.

  • Infinite scroll is a pagination style that is designed to enhance the user experience by providing a more efficient and responsive way to browse long lists of content. The idea is simple, as the user scrolls the page we automatically load and inject more content into the page — avoiding the need for the user to wait on an entirely new page loading.

  • It’s been a while since my last post so I thought it would be a good idea to write a quick update following on from my previous post about creating a custom sidebar theme for Sublime Text.

    I’m still using Sublime these days but I’ve recently made the switch to version 3 which is (still!) in beta. It’s now been about 6 months since I started using Sublime Text and in that time I’ve picked up a couple of nice settings that make for a more beautiful coding experience. I thought I’d share them below because I know a lot of people just use it as is and don’t really look at the options they have to tweak Sublime to there liking.

  • For a couple of months now I’ve been using Sublime Text 2. If you don’t know it then you should definitely check it out. In my opinion (and in many others), it’s the best text editor out there.

    I don't like the appearance of the sidebar that much though so in this post I show you how you can easily customise with just a handful of lines of code and a few minutes of your time.
