Sammā Kammanta - "right action"

» the how-tos ↓ what is this? ↓ what is it for? ↓ how is it made? ↓ what is samma-kammanta? ↓ 

* "cpwp" in a filename or content means applies to ClassicPress and WordPress.
* All mentions of "wordpress" and "wp" can be taken for the most part to refer to Wordpress and ClassicPress.
* Anything "cp" only will be specific to ClassicPress.
All my sites are converting to ClassicPress — for the most part WordPress how-tos here should still apply. Will try to keep up on changes!

What is this?

This is a collection of how-tos and resources for Doing Web Things, as discovered by the Balo Injie Anagārika World WebWalker formerly WoodsWalker, and his loyal followers.
It is built from my files i make for my own reference, built in a way that i can just throw them up here whenever i add or change anything, without much extra thought.
This means filenames and content will change and even be deleted rapidly.

What these are for

* Building websites with ClassicPress (or WordPress v.4.9.x). mostly coding how-tos, and info/howtos on plugins for them.
* General web development how-tos: apache, php, shell command-line and scripts – which make my API for building websites.
* A little bit on some Ubuntu Desktop GUI apps that i use.

I started learning Web and unix/linux when the only place to do it was where the rubber hits the road, and as time and "progress" have rolled by, i have experimented and taken what i thought was useful, but still like to stay close to that same sweet spot. So you won't find anything about the "cool" stuff here. Or pretty pictures neither. Text is fast, it lasts, and it's quick and easy to modify. Looooove text!

What you are looking at here

is all done with the magic of text files, a little bit o' bash, a little bit o' vim, a little bit o' CSS, with the heavy lifting done by the apache web server. See how i do it here.
Ok? Now you don't need no steenkin' sasses and grunts and gulps and moans and groans! (Unless you really want them and you know why!)

Why "samma kammanta"?

samma - right, good | kammanta - action ... this is the work!

“Do what you do
and give the fruits of your action to me.”
Krishna, Bhagavad Gita
“The ideal Buddhist practice, in my opinion, is one that unites inner meditative development with external action in the world. When we cultivate love and compassion as a meditative practice, we create in our hearts a powerful force that can be unleashed and effect momentous transformations, bringing benefits to many. But the love and compassion in our hearts have to find channels to flow out in the form of concrete action.”
Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi
4th section "Putting Compassion into Action", in Parabola.org/2016/10/31/love-and-compassion-in-meditation-and-action-by-ven-bhikkhu-bodhi/

More about kamma yoga, right action, and compassion in action

Sammā Kammanta - "right action"
The fourth step on the Buddha's Noble Eightfold Middle Path.
Negatively: do not kill, do not steal, no sexual misconduct, so as to purify ones mind and body.
Positively, any action motivated by kindness, generosity, the desire to help others or preserve life.

Buddhism and Social Action: An Exploration, by Ken Jones
AccessToInsight.org/lib/authors/jones/wheel285.html

It is not enough to be compassionate,
we must act.
— Dalai Lama XiV

Why the Buddhism propaganda?

Can't help it. These concepts ... in the past not as conscious and verbalised ... now tied to sets of words and practices ... are the drivers behind what i do (for past 22 years now).

To explain the tech, without saying something about the philosophy behind it, seems incomplete, and even wrong.

And also, maybe in some utopian vision of counteracting the empty, ethics-less, and downright evil motivations that a lot of the Web and tech has sunk to.

Take what you like and leave the rest! :)
