Welcome to the fourth day of the Linux command-line toys advent calendar. If this is your first visit to the series, you might be asking yourself, what’s a command-line toy.

mar, 12/04/2018 - 09:02

So, when people talk about serverless, what does it mean? Well, it doesn't mean servers are GONE. Of course not: That "client-server model" is still the backbone of how things are getting done.

ven, 11/30/2018 - 09:01

Applications that used Android's SlidingDrawer library enabled users to hide content offscreen, then drag it onscreen using a "handle" when they wanted to use it. Unfortunately, the library was deprecated in Android 4.2, JellyBean (API 17), but independent developers have stepped in to create alternative versions for those who miss the cool animation and better UI experience it offered.

jeu, 11/29/2018 - 09:03

I do most of my writing in a text editor and format it with Markdown—articles, essays, blog posts, and much more. I'm not the only one, either. Not only do countless people write with Markdown, but there are also more than a few publishing tools built around it.

My open source journey: From Pong to microservices

jeu, 11/29/2018 - 09:01

In 1990, I was a 9th grader living in Vietnam. I had never had access to a computer. One day my mother returned from a trip and gave me a book titled "How to program with Turbo Pascal." I was delighted—everything I read in that book made sense, and I started to write code on paper.

When the local university opened a computer lab that offered rentals, I spent all of my allowances for weeks, trying to write the classic Pong game in Pascal.

Turn an old Linux desktop into a home media center

mer, 11/28/2018 - 09:01

My first attempt to set up an "entertainment PC" was back in the late 1990s, using a plain old desktop computer with a Trident ProVidia 9685 PCI graphics card. I used what was known as a "TV-out" card, which had an extra output to connect to a standard television set. The onscreen result didn't look very nice and there was no audio output. And it was ugly: I had an S-Video cable running across my living room floor to my 19" Sony Trinitron CRT TV set.
