    1. They are proof that our openness about our data formats means that you do not have to fear data lock-in.
    2. So while we can’t endorse those systems, and indeed we have to advise you against using them; their existence is still a Good Thing
    3. It’s this third way that we avoid lock-in that is relevant to today’s topic. Our data format design is specified well enough so that people with no connection to AgileBits can write software to be able to handle it.
    4. The second way we avoid locking you into 1Password is through the ability to export data to a more neutral format. Not all versions are yet where we want them to be with respect to export, and we’re working on that. But there is usually some path, if not always a simple click away, to export your 1Password data.
    1. Although we don’t anticipate publishing source code for manipulating 1Password keychains, others, unaffiliated with AgileBits, have done so.

      May not technically be an open file format, but meets some of the criteria for one:

      • [?] The format is based on an underlying open standard
      • [⍻] The format is developed through a publicly visible, community driven process
      • [⍻] The format is affirmed and maintained by a vendor-independent standards organization
      • [✓] The format is fully documented and publicly available
    1. OPVault is an almost perfectly documented format. This makes it highly improbable to come across a file that will fail to be imported. If it ever happens, a bug in the plugin is probably to be blamed.
    1. 1Password wasn’t built in a vacuum. It was developed on top of open standards that anyone with the right skills can investigate, implement, and improve. Open tools are trusted, proven, and constantly getting better. Here’s how 1Password respects the principles behind the open tools on which it relies:

      I found it ironic that this proprietary software that I have avoided using because it is proprietary software is touting the importance of open tools.

    1. Due dates and threshold dates aren't part of the todo.txt format spec! Due date and threshold date are implemented as key:value tags, which are fully compliant with the todo.txt format spec. They both are popular extensions to the todo.txt command line scripts.
    2. Your task list is a plain text file, not some proprietary format owned by a company or locked to a specific application.
    1. You're not going to find many checkboxes, drop-downs, reminders, or date pickers here.

      Thankfully, some clients like https://github.com/QTodoTxt/QTodoTxt2 do have nice features like autocomplete, and date pickers.

    2. Countless productivity apps and sites store your tasks in their own proprietary database and file format. But you can work with your todo.txt file in every text editor ever made, regardless of operating system or vendor.
    1. uBlock Origin blocks ads through its support of the Adblock Plus filter syntax. uBlock Origin extends the syntax and is designed to work with custom rules and filters.

    1. Les formats sont le plus souvent invisibles : nos actions suffisent en général à mobiliser ceux qui nous servent. Ils sont en fait trop souvent invisibles : le choix est fait « à notre insu », sans qu’aient toujours été pesées les contraintes à respecter en fonction de l’usage à faire du document en question, maintenant et plus tard.

      Le « pacte d'écriture » entre l'écrivain et de son format : le format impose des conditions d'écritures, « à l'insu » de l'utilisateur, dont les choix sont imposés par la technique (le format, les créateurs du format).

    1. Note: this is not a screenshot. You can actually interact with that form. Hooray for MDX!

    1. MDX is a superset of Markdown. It allows you to write JSX inside markdown. This includes importing and rendering React components!

    1. print(self.num,"/",self.den)

      i particularly like an alternate construction better, because it allows you better control of the output string(this example will not insert spaces before and after the slash, unless you deliberately put them there)

      print('{}/{}'.format(self.num,self.den))
      

      It uses the .format module, that lets you replace {} structures with the print verions of variables, you can set names for them like

      print('{numerator}/{denominator}'.format(denominator = self.den, numerator = self.num))
      

      and a lot of other stuff, you can learn more reading the python documentation of the string class

    1. In other words, low digital literacy (among both students and faculty) likely shapes preferences for textbook format.
    2. If cost were not a factor 44% of respondents would have preferred using their textbook in only print format, 41% would have preferred using both print and digital formats, and only 16% would have preferred using only digital format(s).

    1. Links must be stored in HTML files

      But what about links I want to add to documents that I don't own? "Layers for the Web"

      Doesn't Xanadu keep stuff separate somehow?
