Search for "todo" to receive a great awakening08 Apr 2014
While working on this stuff, i decided to put in a few
TODO items to come back to later. After a couple hours, i decided i would check up on my todos just to make sure i didn’t have that many of them. So i ran quick search to see what i’d get:
Q: What did i get back?
A: A large wall of text
node_modules folder, there aren’t that many todos.
That said, it’s a stark reminder that i’m building on top of a large amount of stuff piled together, all of it in various stages of process. It’s a good reminder that i have a lot of work to do and that there’s a lot of great projects that might appreciate some help.
Here’s my quick search method. Searching in windows explorer is just as good.
ls -Recurse -Path *.js | Get-Content | Select-String -pattern 'todo'
(Don’t judge, i work at a Windows shop. Even though the command line shell itself is (imho) garbage, Powershell is actually quite nice once you learn it.)
