The nuts and bolts that everyone needs and most people don't want to hear about
Struggling to build and package your code and third party deps in a dependable manner? I can make these headaches go away.
Got some C code written 20 years ago to run on AIX? I can help you port it to a modern day Linux distribution
My name is Jesse Portnoy
I am a multidisciplinary programmer (they call it full-stack nowadays but I prefer the former term).
I have a clear preference towards backend development and automation (but can also do front-end stuff), a solid UNIX (that includes Linux, of course) system administration experience and basic understanding of hardware (I have never designed HW but I know how to put it together and apart and what common parts do and how to test them for issues).
I have vast experience with packaging and deployment automation and am well versed in packaging RPMs and Debs, as well as other common formats (NPM, PIP, Maven, etc).
I enjoy taking people's build and deployment headaches and turning them into rainbows.
A selection of projects I contributed to. Flip the cards for details.
`zaje` is a syntax highlighter that aims to cover all your shell colouring needs.
zaje can act as an ad hoc replacement for `cat` and, with a spot of one-line shell functions `tail` and other friends.
`gohighlight` is a syntax highlighter for programming languages, config formats and UNIX commands.
Gohighlight includes over a 120 different lexers; contributions are most welcome:)
`md2pdf` converts markdown files into PDFs.
It supports syntax highlighting, paging and dark and light themes.
