I’m not sure who is to blame here, but using vi-mode in oh-my-zsh in Gnome Terminal on Ubuntu, I find that when I move from word to word, the cursor vanishes briefly. This negates the efficiency of trying to edit with vi keybindings! Simple work-around: install roxterm.
Solr has a handy ability to ingest local CSV files. The neatest aspect of which is that you can populate multi-valued fields by sub-parsing an individual field. E.g. the following will ingest /tmp/input.csv and split SomeField into multiple values by semi-colon delimiters:
When running an ingest, I got the following response, which was confusing since myField was, in fact, defined in my schema:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <response> <lst name="responseHeader"> <int name="status">400</int> <int name="QTime">1</int></lst> <lst name="error"> <str name="msg">undefined field: "myField"</str> <int name="code">400</int> </lst> </response>
A peek in the log provided a clue (note the leading question mark):
SEVERE: org.apache.solr.common.SolrException: undefined field: "?myField"
Examining a hex dump of the CSV file revealed that it started with a UTF-8 Byte Order Mark:
xxd /tmp/input.csv | head 0000000: efbb bf...
One way to strip the BOM is with Bomstrip, a collection of BOM-stripping implementations in various languages, including a Perl one-liner. Alternatively, just open the file in Vim, do :set nobomb and save. Done!
Starting with OS X Lion, holding down a key will bring up a menu of alternate characters rather than repeating the key. (This is a feature). There are many tips on how to re-enable key-repeat globally. But you can also control the behavior per-application (thanks, Egor Ushakov). This is handy for e.g. IntelliJ or RubyMine, or any other app that provides Vim-style keyboard bindings. The magic commands are:
% defaults write com.jetbrains.intellij ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false % defaults write com.jetbrains.rubymine ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false
But how do you figure out what the magic identifier for your application is? Simple:
defaults domains will list them all:
defaults domains | gsed -e 's/, /\n/g' | grep jetbrains com.jetbrains.intellij com.jetbrains.intellij.ce com.jetbrains.rubymine jetbrains.communicator.core
Note that in order to munge the commas into newlines for grep, gsed was required because OS X default sed cannot (easily) insert newlines.
