github lens — now with previews

After reading Michael Hall’s blog about adding Unity Previews to Singlet, I knew it was something I needed to add to my singlet lenses.  The most obvious choice to me was allowing users to git clone a GitHub repo from the Preview.  After a couple days of experimenting, I finally figured out what to do […]

GitHub lens, now in the software center!

After a couple of weeks back in forth with the nice people over at the ARB (application review board), it seems that the GitHub Lens is now finally available for all without having to go through the hassle of adding a PPA.

Now introducing: the unity github lens!

After writing + releasing the pypi lens, I was still in the mood for some random coding. Since I now feel I have a bit of a grasp on Unity Lenses (thanks to Michael Hall’s Singlet + Quickly), I decided I may as well keep going, and make as many lenses as people would find […]

Introducing Unity PyPi Lens

So I wanted to try my hand at some Unity Lens writing again (the first time being unity-lens-vm).  After thinking all day Sunday for what kind of lens I wanted, I eventually came up with a lens for PyPi.  For those that don’t know, PyPi is the python package index, which allows users to find […]
