Better GitHub Searching

Daniel Jalkut:

To search any subpath, just modify the search with the “path:” flag: “struct String” path:/stdlib. Six results, all pertinent to the actual implementation of “struct String”. Just what I was looking for.

There are lots of fancy constraints you can apply to GitHub searches, I simply hadn’t thought to look them up until now. Maybe some of them will make your exploration easier, too.

It’s so great having access to the Swift source during development.

How to Shoot on iPhone 7

Apple has a bunch of short videos that show how to use the iPhone’s camera (via Phil Schiller, Hacker News). Very nicely done.

Amazon Lowers Free Shipping Threshold to $25

Lauren Thomas:

In February, Amazon reduced its minimum order amount required to qualify for free shipping — for non-Prime members — to $35 from $49, price tracker BestBlackFriday first reported.

Amazon's website now reads that online orders of $25 or more, featuring eligible items, will qualify for free shipping.

This news comes after big-box retailer Wal-Mart, in January, rolled out free two-day shipping for orders over $35. The shift was one of the first major changes Marc Lore made at Wal-Mart since the retailer purchased his e-commerce start-up, Jet.com, last year.

I gave in and got Prime, now that the Visa card gives you 5% back.
