This blog is now automated!

It was somewhere in 2017 that I decided to automate my daily activities. This was around the time I was learning python and linux shell.

I was introduced to automation while reading automate the boring stuff with python. The book along with my shell scripting experience helped automate quite a few things.

I started with customizing my .bashrc file. Today my .bashrc contains an extracting tool, weather tool and a handful of aliases I cannot live without. I have a huge collection of TV shows and picking one episode out of many was an ordeal back then, so I automated my collection using this script. To this date this script, happens to be one of my most used shell commands.

To find out your most used shell commands ( on Linux ) use:

awk '{print $1}' ~/.bash_history | sort | uniq -c | sort -rn | head -10

Anyways, just the other day, I was thinking of automating my blog by making a Markdown to HTML parser and, lo and behold, today I have done just that. That's right! From now on, this blog's contents will be written in Markdown. I will soon release the parser on my GitHub page!

That's it Folks!
