Here's my favorite git feature that no one knows about:
You can reference commits using the commit message instead of the hash. The ":/" syntax accepts a regex that matches any part of the commit message, returning the youngest matching commit.
Getting into the mood for FOSDEM 2021 tip #4 print this file and put it on your door or wall ;)
Don't forget to encrypt 🔐 secrets with #ansible vault if you add the roles or playbooks to source code management https://docs.ansible.com/ansible/latest/user_guide/vault.html
I've started off into the new year with creating my own NAS. First thing to do is to #encrypt the storage with #luks . Good articles are https://www.redhat.com/sysadmin/disk-encryption-luks and https://www.golinuxcloud.com/how-to-encrypt-hard-disk-partition-luks-linux/ 🔐
Before You Get Mad About The CentOS Stream Change, Think About…
At work, we've been hitting #Docker Pull Rate Limiting lately. We hope to solve this by activating #GitLab Dependency Proxy https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/user/packages/dependency_proxy/. It acts as a Pull-Through-Cache. Let's see how that goes 🤞
Always when I think I know #GitLab, then I'll get to know another awesome feature I haven't seen yet.
It's awesome how #testing is integrated into #rust ! https://doc.rust-lang.org/book/ch11-01-writing-tests.html Even code examples in comments get tested.
@cwebber back in '06 I was at a big LAN. At one point they brought up some volunteers to a stage and let them compete in a quiz-like competition. One of the challenges was "imitate the sound a modem makes when dialing up."
They all stared at each other, completely silent. None of them had heard a dial-up modem or even knew that modems at one point had made sounds.
That's the first time I ever felt old.
Found out that other companies writing software for the company I work for use #gitflow . I prefer #gitlab flow. It's much easier b/c you create feature and hotfix branches from the default branch and you don't need extra tooling. GitLab documentation makes a pretty good point about it https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/topics/gitlab_flow.html #git
Do you already enjoy your account at matrix.org? You're familiar with basic linux stuff? Be a part of #decentralization and setup your own #matrix for friends and family! It's quite easy with this ansible script https://github.com/spantaleev/matrix-docker-ansible-deploy/
Two years ago I have started to write unit tests because I was so sick of my colleagues messing up my work when they did changes to it. I have started to do test driven development this year. And I absolutely ❤️ it. It influences the creative process of writing complex programs in the most simple way very positively #programming #tdd
#git submodules works like a charm when you want to combine some #ansible playbooks and run them from a "lead" playbook. https://git-scm.com/book/en/v2/Git-Tools-Submodules
