A mob/pair programming timer, inspired by the MobProgramming/MobTimer.Python. Runs great on Mac, Windows, and Linux. Learn all about mobbing at the MobTimer.Python github page, and at mobprogramming.org.
You can play through the mob programming RPG to practice mobbing skills with your team. This is a port of Willem Larsen's excellent Mob Programming RPG. This is a fantastic way to learn about some of the subtleties that are essential to effective mobbing, such as the Driver/Navigator Pattern (also known as Strong-Style).
- Pick a familiar exercise in a familiar language if possible so you can focus on learning mobbing skills, not a new language, etc.
Using Active Mobsters for Git Commit Authors/Shell Scripts
The active mobsters will always be up-to-date in the
The location of this file for the different platforms is:
~/Library/Application Support/mobster/active-mobsterson macOS
(As described in
appData section of the Electron docs](https://electron.atom.io/docs/api/app/#appgetpathname)).
The names in the
active-mobsters file are separated by
,s with spaces like so:
Jim Kirk, Spock, McCoy.
You can set the author field in a commit to the list of active mobsters. See mobster-commit.sh for a working example. After committing with this script, your
git log will look something like:
$ git log commit 39d59e7e4c9acb021988b3040f9b7ace5f539b78 Author: James Kirk, Leonard McCoy, Spock <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Fri Mar 3 21:00:25 2017 -0500 Set phasers to stun.
Workaround for Windows 10 Transparency Issues
There is a known Electron bug for transparency in Windows 10 (see also https://github.com/dillonkearns/mobster/issues/49). If you have this issue on your machine, you can disable transparency with these steps:
- Create a file called
NO_TRANSPARENCYin the directory
%APPDATA%/mobster(make sure it doesn't have a
.txtor any other extension). You can type the [Windows]+[R] command and paste in
%APPDATA%/mobsterto get directly to the directory where this file should go.
- Restart Mobster
