Taking Stickler-CI from an idea to a side hustle pt.1

In this three part series, I’m going to cover the evolution of Stickler CI in the past 2 years from the initial prototype to the present day. This specific article will cover how I built the initial prototype and then added paid plans.

My side project

Stickler CI is a software as a service application that automates the more tedious parts of code review; enforcing style and checking lint errors.

Blazing Fast Fuzzy Find in Vim

Many people are surprised when they find out I use VIM as my primary editor. While vim seems like a ‘basic’ editor, it can have IDE like features added through its massive plugin community. I recently upgraded how I do fuzzy file navigation and find in project, and wanted to share how you can get blazing fast search in vim.
