BlogValgrind Highlighting on BKO Syndicate content

Thu, 07/04/2013 - 19:30

Hey all,

you didn’t hear anything from me since quite some time… Thing is, this is my last “regular” semester of university where I have two lab courses that are very time demanding. The year after, I’ll be spending time on my master thesis, which hopefully will allow for some more leisure time for KDE.

Anyhow, a small project which I just worked on to write some small lines of code again was to make my BKO backtrace highlighter work on Chromium. It requires the Tampermonkey extension to get more compatibility with Greasemonkey of Firefox fame, otherwise it works more or less out of the box!

After fixing some small other inconsistencies I can now say that it works fine in both, Firefox and Chromium! I furthermore took the liberty to extend its functionality a bit: You now also get highlighted Valgrind traces, i.e. generated by memcheck and other error reporting tools - yay!

Oh and before I forget it: See you all next week at Akademy! I’m so looking forward for the intense hacking and socializing, esp. since I missed last year! And: If you are interested in how to improve the performance of your application(s), make sure to attend my talk on Sunday: Apps On Speed
