I found an interesting article by Jillian Rowe: "How to Replace Bash with Python as Your Go-To Command Line Language"

Bash is good for issuing a command quickly, but produces poorly readable code that is difficult to maintain. You want to know Bash, but you don't want to use it. If you have code that goes into a file, it's time to break out the Python!

There are a lot of benefits to using Python as your go to command line language.


I want to update a CSS file on my server with a script from my client computer via the Internet (not via SSH only this file so maybe other ppl with a password also can do this). The file is located in "public_html". How do I do this as securely as possible? Is it possible to write directly to the file? Should I use a database? How would you do this? Or is the idea already nonsense?🤔

I would appreciate any advice on how to implement such a task or why it is better not to do so.😇

4️⃣ If you are using RDP to connect a Windows virtual machine from a Linux host in QEMU/KVM you can easily share a folder: Just enable the 'Share folder' option in Remmina Remote Desktop Preferences.

This creates a redirected drive and folder under 'This PC' in your Windows vm (share on <your Linux hostname>) or you can map the folder with

[How-to] Remote Desktop into your Windows VM from openSUSE

1️⃣ I use QEMU/KVM and virt-manager as GUI. My virtual machines run Linux but I have also a Windows VM.

To make the Windows machine accessible via RDP, the QEMU command line arguments must be passed to KVM to use port forwarding. The XML configuration file must be edited with virsh. This is a tool for managing virtual machines.:

sudo virsh --connect qemu:///session edit Windows10


With Snapper you can easily roll back to a previous state under openSUSE, in case something goes wrong. The basis for this is the file system Btrfs.

For me it's fun to work with it. 🤓

With QEMU/KVM on Linux :tux: you don't have to miss a shared clipboard on guest and host‼️

➡️ Install Spice-GTK* on your host

➡️ In 'Virtual Machine Manager' GUI for QEMU/KVM switch the guest machine's display to SPICE-Server

➡️ Install 'spice-guest-tools-latest.exe' for Windows guest: spice-space.org/download/windo and for a Linux guest:

$ sudo apt install spice-vdagent

Done: Now you have a shared clipboard.

It's fun to master the Linux cli with PHP. Especially when coding on the road with Termux. :linux: 📲

Did you know you can execute a line of PHP with the -r option or that you get an interactive mode with -a or execute a PHP script file with -f? 😎 :terminal:

There are many more options to explore like reading and writing CSV files, working with databases and so on.

Thanks to @jkb and his hint to PHP beyond the web.
