Search and Replace Commands in Linux

Sed command does a great job for search and replace, let’s see an example:

sed -i -- 's/foo/bar/g' myfile.txt

This will convert the string “foo” to “bar” in myfile.txt, if you would like to perform this on all files use:

sed -i -- 's/foo/bar/g' *

The same can be done recursively using find command:

find . -type f -exec sed -i 's/foo/bar/g' {} +

Sprintf Equivalent in Javascript

Below are the two methods by which we can emulate sprintf in Javascript directly to console.log and String.format:

console.log approach:

(function() {

    var logger = console.log;

    console.log = function() {

        var format = function(str, args) {
            return str.replace(/{(\d+)}/g, function(match, number) {
                return typeof args[number] != 'undefined' ? args[number] : match;
        var inputs =;
        logger(format(inputs.shift(), inputs));


console.log("Hello {1}", 10, 100);</pre>

String.format approach:

    if (!String.prototype.format) {
      String.prototype.format = function() {
        var args = arguments;
        return this.replace(/{(\d+)}/g, function(match, number) { 
          return typeof args[number] != 'undefined'
            ? args[number]
            : match
    "{0} is dead, but {1} is alive! {0} {2}".format("ASP", "ASP.NET");

How to Trigger Event on Pressing Enter Key in AngularJS

Use the below directive which triggers a function when enter / return key is pressed:

.directive('ngEnter', function () {
    return function (scope, element, attrs) {
        element.bind("keydown keypress", function (event) {
            if (event.which === 13) {
                scope.$apply(function () {


<input ng-model="input" ng-enter="enterTriggered">

How Emit a Event When Ng-repeat Is Completed AngularJS

Use a directive with ng-repeat which triggers a function when ng-repeat reaches to last element, directive code:

.directive('onFinishEmit', function($timeout) {
    return {
        restrict: 'A',       
        link: function(scope, element, attr) {
            if (scope.$last === true) {
                $timeout(function() {                        


<div ng-repeat="data in dataset" on-finish-emit="renderComplete">
