  • Possible to avoid dev mode and get full desktop/cli?
    1 project | | 15 May 2022
    I'm pretty excited for Flatpack+immutable roots. However, if I want to run CLI apps/dev envs/etc, can I do this without entering into dev mode and losing the immutable root fs? I really like how Silverblue uses Podman and Toolbox to keep everything in an easily-accessible container. You can even run other OS's pretty easy and not lose the double security model of container + immutable root fs.

    They still don't do anything really of substance, they're just gateways to their vendor's world - booking systems, payment systems, etc. You learn those as you go along. Yes, as a potential employee, you need to be able to tick those boxes on your CV, but if you understand the underlying technology, it's mostly a matter of booking your own AWS or Azure server for $5-10 a month for a few weeks, and fooling around. (Docker is a bit different in the sense that they were the first to popularize today's de-facto container image standard, the "Docker container", which has since been accepted as a proper standard and renamed to "OCI image format"; but at the end of the day, at this point in time, Docker in itself is still just a company out for the money, and the multi-GB installation of their product can, for the essential functionality part, be replaced by a few hundred lines of Bash code. The cool boys today don't use Docker, they use [Podman(, which is essentially a much more lightweight drop-in replacement ;-) )

    Podman itself had a recent highly appreciated release, have a look
  • Podman v4.1 has been released!
    4 projects | | 9 May 2022
    There are numerous other changes and improvements to all parts of Podman packed into this release. We’ve added several new commands, including podman volume mount and podman volume unmount (to allow easy copying of files to and from volumes without using them in a container) and podman container clone (creates a copy of an existing container, with the ability to change many settings while doing so). Checkpoint and restore have seen a major improvement with the ability to store checkpoints as OCI images, allowing them to be distributed via container registries. Finally, Podman has gone on a diet - we set out to reduce or eliminate many of our dependencies and managed to reduce our binary size by 8MB shaving off 15% of the original binary size. There are many more changes - too many to list all of them here - so be sure to check out the release notes!

  • Kubernetes for Startups: Practical Considerations for Your App
    15 projects | | 22 Apr 2022
    Build: Workloads need to be containerized. That leads to long build times, especially if there is no caching possible/enabled for the build. A local build might be just a hot reload, but these can take many minutes with the container build step included. Please use podman, kaniko, or similar over docker for builds.

    What got me at first are the limitations around rootless containers, which I wasn't accustomed to. Rootfull docker makes many things (networking, volumes etc.) Fairly easy.

    I've found this troubleshooting page quite helpful:

What are some alternatives?
