Getting started with the Gutenberg editor in Drupal

mer, 03/04/2020 - 09:00

Since 2017, WordPress has had a really great WYSIWYG editor in the Gutenberg plugin. But the Drupal community hasn't yet reached consensus on the best approach to the content management system's (CMS) editorial experience. But a strong new option appeared when, with a lot of community effort, Gutenberg was integrated with Drupal.

Previously, there were two main approaches to content creation in Drupal 8:

5 MySQL features you need to know

mar, 03/03/2020 - 09:03

Recently, at a presentation I was giving on the newer features of MySQL 8.0, I noticed one person in the audience getting very upset. The more I talked about one feature, the more agitation I could see this one person getting. We're talking upset at a level where I was wondering if I was going to worry about my physical safety. The person in question finally snapped, "If I had known about that, it would have saved me four months of my life!"

Getting started with lightweight alternatives to GNU Emacs

mar, 03/03/2020 - 09:02

I work on a lot of servers, and sometimes I find a host that hasn't installed GNU Emacs. There's usually a GNU Nano installation to keep me from resorting to Vi, but I'm not used to Nano the way I am Emacs, and I inevitably run into complications when I try to save my document (C-x in Nano stands for Exit, and C-s locks Konsole).

Install GNU Emacs on Windows

lun, 03/02/2020 - 09:02

GNU Emacs is a popular text editor designed for programmers of all sorts. Because it was developed on Unix and is widely used on Linux (and shipped with macOS), people sometimes don't realize that it's also available for Microsoft Windows. You don't need to be an experienced or full-time programmer to make use of Emacs, either. You can download and install Emacs with just a few clicks, and this article shows you how.

You can install Windows manually or with a package manager, like Chocolatey.

Over the eight years since its inception, Ansible has become wildly successful. The core maintainers know that the workload to keep accepting modules has outgrown the model, so there are large changes afoot. If you get time to read only one thing in this edition of Ansible around the web, make it Jeff Geerling's post on collections. Otherwise, there's a tasty selection of articles on complex environments and how to lay out Ansible to service them, SAP HANA, and building RPMs. Enjoy!

Using LibreOffice for your open source budgeting tool

lun, 03/02/2020 - 09:00

Budgets can be intimidating for beginners. It can feel overwhelming to think about money, much less about how to keep track of it. But it's important to know where your money is coming and going.

In this article, I'll step through a sample budget by explaining the logic behind important money decisions as well as the formulas you need to automate the process. Fortunately, LibreOffice makes it easy for anyone to keep their yearly budget in check, even the math-averse.

6 questions for the OSI board of directors candidates

dim, 03/01/2020 - 09:00

In a twitter exchange about ethical licenses, my friend Stephen O'Grady said something that I thought was sharp: 

the energy cost is only part of the issue. maybe it's significant over the long term, maybe not.

the collateral damage of the process to individuals and institutions with no other goal than protecting open source, however, is material IMO.

How to process real-time data with Apache

ven, 02/28/2020 - 09:03

In the "always-on" future with billions of connected devices, storing raw data for analysis later will not be an option because users want accurate responses in real time. Prediction of failures and other context-sensitive conditions require data to be processed in real time—certainly before it hits a database.

Psst. Word on the web is that RSS died in 2013. That's when Google pulled the plug on Google Reader.

Don't believe everything that you hear. RSS is alive. It's well. It's still a great way to choose the information you want to read without algorithms making the decision for you. All you need is the right feed reader.

Getting started with Linux firewalls

ven, 02/28/2020 - 09:00

A sensible firewall is your computer's first line of defense against network intrusion. When you're at home, you're probably behind a firewall built into the router supplied by your internet service provider. When you're away from home, though, the only firewall you have is the one running on your computer, so it's important to configure and control the firewall on your Linux computer. If you run a Linux server, it's just as important to know how to manage your firewall so that you can protect it from unwanted traffic both locally and remotely.

jeu, 02/27/2020 - 09:02

A great deal has happened since DevOps became a common term in the IT world. With so much of the ecosystem being open source, it's important to review why it started and what it means to IT careers.

What is DevOps?

While there is no single definition, I consider DevOps to be a process framework that ensures collaboration between development and operations teams to deploy code to production environments faster in a repeatable and automated way. We will spend the rest of this article unpacking that statement.

7 open source Q&A platforms

jeu, 02/27/2020 - 09:00

Where do you go when you have a question? Since humans began walking the earth, we've asked the people around us—our family, friends, neighbors, classmates, co-workers, or other people we know well. Much later came libraries and bookstores offering knowledge and resources, as well as access for anyone to come in and search for the answers. When the home computer became common, these knowledge bases extended to electronic encyclopedias shipped on floppy disks or CD-ROMs.

Use logzero for simple logging in Python

mer, 02/26/2020 - 09:02

The logzero library makes logging as easy as a print statement, which is quite a feat of simplicity. I'm not sure whether logzero took its name to fit in with the series of "zero boilerplate" libraries like pygame-zero, GPIO Zero, and guizero, but it's certainly in that category. It's a Python library that makes logging straightforward.

You can just use its basic logging to stdout the same way you might use print for information and debugging purposes, and it has a smooth learning curve towards more advanced logging, like logging to a file.
