textmate - Automatically Upload The File After Saving - Stack Overflow

I am still using Textmate-2 at the moment, no plan to switch to other software. Sometimes using vim when I’m accessing the server. Anyway, just a note if you’re using Textmate-2 and Transmit-4, you can use DockSend to push files to your remote server from the text editor — Ctrl-Shift-F and press 2.

Rails 4 TurboLinks and jQuery Dynamic Links Not Playing Nice - Stack Overflow

and so on my journey to Rails 4 has brought me to issue with jQuery and TurboLinks. Basically, when the page first load, it loads my datepicker script. Then once I do the update, the same page won’t load my datepicker anymore. A refresh action seems to clear the page and load my datepicker script.

Well, it turns out that having TurboLinks installed, will speed up your page, but it also caused conflict with jQuery. (I think, refresh action seems to clear the cache somehow).

Well, the solution is not that hard, instead of using jQuery(document).ready ... change it to jQuery(document).on 'page:load', -> will fix the issue

I see you reposted an article about installing RoR on Centos 5.6. I'm trying to follow the steps but have an issue with the gcc configure step. It gives me few warnings and then "configure: error: invalid variable name: `—prefix'". Any ideas to get past that?

hi there

maybe it could be from copy&paste? try to type in the command (and yes i know it’s painful). btw, i can’t seems to find the re-post link.

i think it should be ” --prefix ” with two ” - ” (single dash), instead of ” —prefix “ with long dash. 

please let me know if you managed to install it or need more help.

Everything when ok when suddenly my configure command issue me “cannot find libmysqlclient" error. It turns out that, you need to specify the libdir variable, so by doing "ldconfig -v | grep mysql”. So I will add “—with-libdir=lib64”. Remember to remove “/usr" from the given path and if you are using 32bit, it should be in "lib" directory (if not mistaken).

./configure --with-apxs2=/usr/sbin/apxs --with-mysql=/usr/local --with-libdir=lib64

So, configure action when well until it give me another error. This one is related to PHP need to be patched. Since, Im using 5.2.17, this site (
