Line wrapping is finally available in Netbeans 7.0

Well, if you ask me why I left Netbeans and started using phpStorm; I will say first: Speed, second: Line wrapping along with few other reasons. I’ve used Netbeans for quite sometime but I was very irritated as it did not have good line wrapping support. Some users may wonder why I am saying ‘good’ as it did not have any line wrapping at all.

The fact is that, line wrapping was implemented in earlier versions too but was not enabled by default as it was not stable.  It can be enabled by editing a configuration file but it was causing lots of troubles while coding. However, as the latest version, v7.0, is released on 18th April 2011, line wrapping is now available without any such hacking and so far it is good to me.

How to enable Line Wrapping?

Go to Netbeans  -> Preferences (or press CMD + ,) -> Editor -> Formatting

You will notice a drop down labeled as ‘Line Wrap’. Choose ‘After Words’ or ‘Anywhere’ as per your wish and then hit OK.

That’s it. Simply open a file (opened files need re-opening) and you will not see horizontal scroll-bars :).

Recent air travel experience

Recently I have experienced my life’s longest air journey! During this journey, I have used a few numbers of airlines! I am trying to share my experience about them!

I went to Goa, India on 23rd July, 2010! There was no direct flight from Dhaka-Goa! Even, if I want to use single airline, it will take at least 22hours to reach to Goa! On such a critical situation, Nazrul vy (Brother-in-law of arafat vy) from Pan Bright Tours & Travels, arranged connecting flights for me! At first I was very skeptical about the connecting flights because if any flight delays, I will miss the next flight! However, good news is that I did not miss any flight :D! Continue reading →

Show RSS Feed within a WordPress Post – In Post RSS Feed plugin

This idea, showing a relevant RSS Feed at the end of the post, came to my mind day before yesterday. That time, I had to install the wp-exec plugin that can handle PHP codes inside the post. Using that, I have included an RSS Feed at the end of the post to show live contents from external site.

However, that is not suitable for all. All wordpress users don’t know PHP. Moreover, it is not simply process. if you make a syntax error, you take a lots of trouble. So, I thought, I will make it simple. And yes, the initial version is done. I have plan to release an low-cost premium version with many customizable features that I have in my mind.

How it works?

After you install the plugin, you configure it from WP-Admin -> Settings -> In Post RSS link and set the number of items to show and show/hide Feed Title that is given by you as you see in the screenshot below:

Favorite Poem :: On Love – Kahlil Gibran

On Love
Kahlil Gibran

When love beckons to you follow him,

Though his ways are hard and steep.

And when his wings enfold you yield to him,

Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.

And when he speaks to you believe in him,

Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.

For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.

Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,

So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.

Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.

He threshes you to make you naked.

He sifts you to free you from your husks.

He grinds you to whiteness.

He kneads you until you are pliant;

And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God’s sacred feast.

All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life’s heart.

But if in your fear you would seek only love’s peace and love’s pleasure,

Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love’s threshing-floor,

Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.

Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.

Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;

For love is sufficient unto love.

When you love you should not say, “God is in my heart,” but rather, I am in the heart of God.”

And think not you can direct the course of love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.

Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself.

But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:

To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.

To know the pain of too much tenderness.

To be wounded by your own understanding of love;

And to bleed willingly and joyfully.

To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;

To rest at the noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy;

To return home at eventide with gratitude;

And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.

Kahlil Gibran
