I am Tony Narlock#
This is my professional website, I’ve been a software developer for 14 years. If you’re not one, what I do likely won’t make sense to you.
In my spare time I plan, develop, and maintain a fleet of developer tools. For example, tmuxp constructs tmux sessions from a JSON or YAML file. To that end, I’ve also written a book about tmux a few years ago, The Tao of tmux. Another tool I’ve created is cihai, which is built around Unicode’s UNIHAN dataset for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean languages.
My CV tracks everything I’ve ever done - work, my projects, and open source (I’m a polyglot, there is some C++ in there).
What’s going on in my life as a programmer#
What am I busy with outside of work?
September 2022 - One more thing on doctest
It also has a pytest plugin
On that note, I also made a pytest plugin for libtmux and libvcs:
Mid August 2022 - Promises keep coming
Additionally, test and quality infrastructure has been improved across all projects:
Early August 2022 - Promises kept (and keep coming)
libvcs 0.14.0 released w/ typing annotations and doctests.
In the process, “side inventions” (License MIT):
doctest: actual code demo in documentation which also function as tests
dataclasses (experimental): As a library creator, I will put these to the test
The projects will be a proving ground for quality standards and patterns I’ll adopt across my other and future packages.
All sites moved to new design.
tmux-python (tmuxp + libtmux), vcs-python (vcspull + libvcs), cihai (cihai, cihai-cli, unihan-etl, unihan-db) moved to markdown
