Running unit tests for ViewModels on Android where you have LiveData objects can be tricky. It is very possible that you get this exception:
java.lang.RuntimeException: Method getMainLooper in android.os.Looper not mocked.

I am using axios to scrape some data from some websites. Currently, I hit the case where the encoding of the website is in windows-1251 and the response I got from the request wasn’t readable at all.

In Android we decided that we want to implement a unit test performance monitor. The reason for it is that sometimes some unit tests would execute in more than 1 second and it was all because we would use the Schedulers.trampoline() RxJava scheduler instead of the TestScheduler which is part of the RX package.

I want to stop the update manager from popping up in Ubuntu because I think that they release bad updates sometimes and really make the OS unstable. This is my personal opinion after 3 reinstallations in 2 months.

I was really wondering how I can remove repetitive tasks from Android Studio by assigning shortcuts or tags and I found that IntelliJ has Live Templates which I bet that little programmers use. So as an example I wanted when I type the word “tag” within a class the following to be autocompleted:

I bought an old Dell D430 laptop which is pretty old and small (12″) and I installed Lubuntu 14.04.02
The problem is that the fullscreen mode on Chromium and Chrome is not working as expected. It hides the application bar at the bottom but does not allow the browsers to go fullscreen – tabs and address bar are staying in their place when you press F11.
The problem is that the F11 key is taken from the system to make the current focused window fullscreen. You can see it here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu/Keyboard
So just go to ~/.config/openbox , backup the lubuntu-rc.xml file and edit the original one replacing the F11 shortcut for toggle fullscreen with F10 for example.
Logout and login again and now when you press F11 in chrome or chromium it will go fullscreen, instead of using the default system shortcut.
I use Guake for Ubuntu as a terminal. And there is this option in the Guake properties to set it to open the same directory you were in if you want another terminal. This is just now working with the latest version of Guake. To fix it just run the following:
gconftool-2 –set /apps/guake/general/open_tab_cwd –type=boolean true
And it will add a variable saying that you want the same folder opened when you open another terminal. 🙂
The bug can be found here: https://github.com/Guake/guake/issues/578
