In The Distance

The air, crisp and cool, hung heavy with silence. A particularly heavy mist softened the landscape. Although it had already dawned, the sun was just starting to contribute the yellows and reds to the scene in front of me.

docX2csv: Microsoft Word Style Summary Creator

How to clone and synchronise a GitHub repository on Android

Introduction This project describes how I synchronise my  LogSeq  folder on GitHub on Android devices. I wanted to be able to work on topics in LoqSeq on my Android devices besides my PCs. Most of the screen shots and references relate to LogSeq, but you can adjust them to your needs. The solution described here is one in which the synchonization with the repository will be manual. In this scenario, one would synchronise with the repo before opening the tool (LogSeq in my case) and update the repo again when you're done. The Steps ( skip if you want to jump directly to the actions ) This tutorial describes how to install  Termux  on an Android device.  Termux  is an open-source Android terminal emulator and Linux environment application. After Termux is updated and running, a folder on the Android device is mapped to Termux.  GitHub  is installed, and the repo is cloned to this folder. The Termux folder used for the repo has to be  reflected  from the Android end so that any a
