Macbook Pro in the Classroom

So I headed to the classroom with my brand new MacBook Pro. It's a wonderfull laptop, but again the good developers from Mac had a surprise in the sleeve.

I could not use the projector!

Of course you have to buy new wires in order to do something as mundane as showing your screen to a class on a MacBook Pro. It is ok to use whatever slugs Mac fancys, but it is not ok that we have to buy new connectors every time we buy a new Mac!

Well ... on a Mac you're always the creative guy. I had to use a whiteboard, and the students had to watch the code samples on my Github repos on their own devices.

How to use Emmet in Brackets on a Mac

It's hard to find anythin on this topic: how do you write alt+ctrl+enter on a Mac. Of course the solution is:

alt+ctrl+enter = TAB on a Mac!

To be honest, I like this solution, it's simple and resembles what you do in the terminal window. 5 points for Mac here.

[Solved] Emmet in Brackets on Ubuntu

I could not install the Emmet - or other plug ins - in Brackets. The problem was the packet manager Snap. I had to remove the snap for brackes, and deleted all files related to Brackets manually. Then I downloaded the .deb package for Brackets and installed the thing. Now everything was OK, and I could install the Emmet plugin.

And Emmet is sooo cool.
