An ode to the pipe operator

What I particularly like about the tidyverse is the pipe operator %>%. For me it is more than a convenient way of concatenating tasks, prettifying and/or reducing the amount of code. I intrinsically connect it to the first two principles of the UNIX philosophy:

Mounting VirtualBox's shared folders

When mounting VirtualBox folders shared by Windows with mount -t vboxsf <shared folder> <mountpoint> on a Unix machine, the permissions of files and folders are often incorrect. Both files and folders are mounted with umask 000.

Easy deployment with git hooks

I use Git for managing this website. After commiting content locally, I push it to the remote side. Traditionally, then, I would ssh into remote and copy the repositories content somewhere under /var/www. This was before I found out about a very handy feature implemented in Git called "hooks".
