Logs for #nikola for 2016-05-28

04:38:12 <[Tritium]> shower thought: Docx files are zip files containing XML.  zip files are endexed from the end.  nikola metadata is text, indexed from the beginning.  You COULD cat the metadata onto the beginning of a docx file and have 1 file docx posts!  .... seriously, dont actually implement that, but its cool that you can
07:00:38 <ChrisWarrick> [Tritium]: oh, there are so many zip hacks out there
07:00:44 <ChrisWarrick> one more can’t hurt
07:01:07 <ChrisWarrick> cat python.exe myapp.zip > myapp.exe → ./myapp.exe ./myapp.exe  will work
07:01:50 <[Tritium]> mkdir foo && touch foo.... yeah i was getting at that
07:02:10 <[Tritium]> you do need a sitecustomize.py in there to tell python to execute itself
07:04:22 <[Tritium]> ... interesting tidbit from the MS docs... "MS-DOS allows you to append several binary files together using the COPY command. However, the target file that results is smaller than the sum of the source files."
07:11:21 <ChrisWarrick> do they count hdd sectors?
07:12:24 <[Tritium]> Probably
16:06:47 <gour> is install_theme obsolete or alias considering that 'theme' cmd can, seemingly, handle the same thing?
16:06:54 <ChrisWarrick> gour: obsolete
16:07:05 <gour> thanks
17:02:37 <gour> created demo site to start working on another site i want to port to nikola and it gives 'Unknown shortocode foo...' - see https://bpaste.net/show/902116de5e93
17:05:30 <gour> python3 & pip install "Nikola[extras]" typogrify
17:06:05 <gour> so, nikola-v7.7.8
17:06:40 <gour> hmm, another 'build' and no error any longer
17:30:19 <ChrisWarrick> gour: probably some issue with a shortcode
21:31:22 <sudoneko> Hi everyone, does anyone know how to add magic links to my site? I have found that you can write link://kind/name, but which file do I write this syntax in? Doesn't seem to work in the RST file.
21:41:27 <sudoneko> No worries, I have found the solution.
