    Lock and synchronization in python

    This example shows how to deal with lock in python parallel programming. Here we want to calculate the disk occupancy for a given directory in Linux OS, evaluating the disk occupancy for any subdirectory using threads. Note the usage of lock mechanism to ensure atomic operation on the total sum.
    import os
    import string
    import threading
    from threading import Thread
    disk_usage = 0
    lock = threading.Lock()
    for dir in os.popen('ls -d *').readlines():
        print "Dir: " + dir
        t = Thread(target=methodToBeExecutedInParallel, args=(dir,))
        #Join all existing threads to main thread.
        for thread in threading.enumerate():
            if thread is not threading.currentThread():
        print "Disk usage = " + str(disk_usage)
    # Function invoked by each thread
    def methodToBeExecutedInParallel(directory):
        print "Working on dir = " + directory
        cmd = 'du -s ' + directory
        line = os.popen(cmd).readlines()[0]
        dirUsage = int(line.split()[0])
        print "Acquiring lock for "+directory+"..."
        with lock:
            print "Acquired lock for "+directory
            global disk_usage
            disk_usage += dirUsage
        print "Disk usage = " + str(dirUsage)

    Embed a browser into SWT Dialog and manage the firing of popups from links in the displayed page

    This is how to manage an embedded browser. Note: unfortunately this seems not working on some versions of Mac OS X.

    			new Thread( new Runnable() {
    	            public void run() {
    	            	log.debug("some stuff t do here...");
    			final Shell shell = new Shell(event.display);
    		    shell.setText("My Browser page");
    		    shell.setLayout(new FillLayout());
    		    event.browser = new Browser(shell, SWT.NONE);
    		    event.browser.addCloseWindowListener(new CloseWindowListener() {

    WordPress safely defining and executing functions

    Handy safe way to include functions in your WordPress Themes functions.php file. This is even more useful if you are using a child theme and don't want to conflict with functions already defined by the parent theme. Even better; These functions can be executed within the same if(function_exists()) block that defines them creating a neater to manage
    // Lets get rid of the versioning on static .js and .css files.
    // It looks tacky anyway for static files.
    	 * Strips Version query strings
    	 * @param type $src
    	 * @return type
    	if(!function_exists('remove_css_js_versions')){ // if the function doesnt exist then...
    		function remove_css_js_versions($src){ // define the function
    			return remove_query_arg('ver', $src); // call built-in wordpress function to remove query named "ver" from whatever is passed as $src
    		add_filter('script_loader_src', 'remove_css_js_versions'); // Pass a hook as $src for js to function listed above named "remove_css_js_versions"
    		add_filter('style_loader_src', 'remove_css_js_versions'); // Pass a hook as $src for css to function listed above named "remove_css_js_versions"
    	} // All scripts and styles will be filtered to have ?ver=1.2.3 stripped from urls. Function defined and executed in same if() statement.
      * Need to debug? Instead of just using print_r($array) you just do preprint_r($array)
      * the array will be output neatly instead of wrapped and messy.
    		function preprint_r($val){
    			echo '<pre>' . PHP_EOL;
    			print_r($val) . PHP_EOL;
    			echo '</pre>' . PHP_EOL;
    	/** Remove the WP Icon (Menu) from profile and admin pages. */
      		function remove_wp_logo($wp_admin_bar){
      		add_action('admin_bar_menu', 'remove_wp_logo', 33);
    	 * Wordpress Login Page fixes. By default WordPress shows its logo on your login pages and links to its own site.
    	 * A visitor logging into your site don't need this potential roadblock so lets show WordPress that we mean business!
    	# Fix Login Page WordPress URL
    		function fix_wp_login_img_url($url){
    			return get_bloginfo('url');
    		add_filter('login_headerurl', 'fix_wp_login_img_url');
    	# Fix Login Page WordPress Title (Text displayed on hover defaults to Powered By WordPress)
    		function fix_wp_login_img_title($title){
    			return get_bloginfo('description');
    		add_filter('login_headertitle', 'fix_wp_login_img_title');
    		Change Login Page WordPress Logo, You will need to update path and point to a valid image.
    		WordPress adds this with a CSS background image for your anchor link. It first applys a PNG and then a SVG override if your browser is modern and supports svg
    		In your themes custom stylesheet you can change default Wordpress image by supplying a new background image:
    		.login h1 a {
    			background-image: none,url(images/your_image.png);
    		Hint: WordPress uses an 64x64 image but you can adapt size to your need. You might want to use SVG like WordPress did because it will scale best at any resolution.
    	 * Simple Actions that use wp_head hook to cleanup WP header Junk/Bloat
    	 * that is included with WordPress by default.
    	remove_action('wp_head', 'wp_generator');
    	remove_action('wp_head', 'rsd_link');
    	remove_action('wp_head', 'wlwmanifest_link');
    	remove_action('wp_head', 'wp_shortlink_wp_head');
