Make Cross Device Icons and Favicons.ico using Sketch App

Folkbot Icon Favicon Exporter Sketch

One of the great things about Macs are the creative professionals tools, one of which is Sketchapp which is native to Mac OSx.

For Folkbot I need to create favicons for the Drupal themes, WordPress themes, Phoenix apps etc etc.

Sketch uses a file format that can be shared via GIT and Frederik Jacques has created a template that does this, create an array of favicons for various devices, Mac, Windows, HTML5 etc. He even has the HTML block for the webpage templates for all devices.

Sketch App is a great tool and thanksĀ Frederik Jacques

Use sed to remove an old known_host

When doing system and network administration on Linux (aka DevOps) its common to make an IP change to the server you are working on and get a known_host man in the middle kind of warning.

ssh [email protected]
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
@ WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED! @
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
IT IS POSSIBLE THAT SOMEONE IS DOING SOMETHING NASTY!
Someone could be eavesdropping on you right now (man-in-the-middle attack)!
It is also possible that a host key has just been changed.
The fingerprint for the ECDSA key sent by the remote host is
SHA256:ghghghhhhhgghhkiugh+g5sVWs16pTYWbH3O82c.
Please contact your system administrator.
Add correct host key in /home/devekko/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.
Offending ECDSA key in /home/devekko/.ssh/known_hosts:34
remove with:
Host key verification failed.

 

An easy way to remove a bad known_hosts line on say line x

sed -i 'xd' ~/.ssh/known_hosts
