A Commonplace Repository

March 23, 2019, updated January 13, 2020

I keep a repository of various things I have learned but can’t possibly remember in totality (or recall quickly). This is useful for computer things because the repository can be cloned and fuzzy-searched (I prefer vim + fzf). If you find yourself frequently searching for the answer to the same problem or reading the same man page, this might be a good method for you as well.

My commonplace repo

An update:

I’ve decided to merge my commonplace repo with this blog. It’s easy to migrate because it adheres to the same format (markdown files) and a benefit of having it here is that it can all be rendered onto a single page for easy searching (ctrl+f).
