Qutebrowser and URLs as QR-codes

Implementing a qr-code for a visited URL in Qutebrowser

When I have been to the 35c3 in Leipzig I saw a pretty firefox addon that became very handy when we wanted to share the URL to a freshly created pad. It was FxQRL a Firefox add-on that turns your URLs into QR code images without the need of a network connection. Everyone of us could then scan this code with our mobile phones, and we were done.


My perfect typing environment. Finally.

I built me a mechanical keyboard specialised for Emacs and coding

If you have read my earlier articles about my search for the perfect keyboard, you may have got an idea of what I was looking for. Namely a mechanical keyboard with a decent keyboard layout, optimized for my use case. I mostly do my writing with Emacs, and a lot of it is german text and programm code. In the meantime I found my perfect solution, and realized I had no article of it in my blog. So this is it, maybe it is of use for some of you.

I like it, when I see the intentions of a code author, and i like to see it written down in remark lines. Why didn't someone do that with the world. It would be far easier to understand. So I started to document my world wherever I see the need to do so. In text. With Emacs Org mode. I want to share this world with you.
