Fixing MacVim Fullscreen in Yosemite

March 17, 2015

Many long term users of Macvim like myself have been annoyed that fullscreen mode cuts off the first couple lines and shows a bar on the right when using OSX Yosemite. After trying out multiple forks that kind of fixed it but also introduced other problems I finally found a satisfactory fix. Just run this in the terminal to turn off yosemites fullscreen method on macvim.

$ defaults write org.vim.MacVim MMNativeFullScreen 0

Saving dynamic serialized fields with fields_for in Rails

February 23, 2015

Tell you model to serialize it as a struct and create a setter to build the struct on create.

# post.rb model
serialize :content, OpenStruct
def content=(v)
  self[:content] = OpenStruct.new(v)
end

Then you can add any form elements you want for content.

-#form partial

= f.fields_for :content, @post.content do |ff|
  .field
    = ff.label :name
    = ff.text_field :name
  .field
