    Source for Integration Test MySQL (testcontainers-dotnet) workflow is in integration-test-mysql-testcontainers-dotnet.yml.
  • REST API with Go, Chi, MySQL and sqlx
    6 projects | | 23 Jun 2023
    I will start by copying the content of, placing it in a new folder movies-api-with-go-chi-and-mysql and updating module name in go.mod to match the new folder and updating in source files where its used. This will usually be the root of your git repo and will not be as elaborate as this.
  • REST API with ASP.NET Core 7 and SQL Server

  • Ask HN: What software sparks joy when using?
    9 projects | | 17 Apr 2024
    Linux Mint with Cinnamon: as far as desktop OSes go it's familiar (Ubuntu without snaps by default), whereas the UI feels both snappy, doesn't use too much resources and is actually pretty to look at.

    MobaXTerm: this one is a bit more Windows centric but I ended up paying for it and replaced mRemoteNg and PuTTY with it, it's even better than Remmina or whatever Linux has to offer - you can manage SSH/RDP/VNC/... sessions, input across multiple sessions side by side and it just simplifies things a lot (jump host support, a port forwarding too and so much more).

    GitKraken: also a piece of software that I paid for, this one actually makes using Git pleasant, feels better to use than SourceTree and Git Cola (even though that latter is wonderfully lightweight, too) and honestly I prefer that to the CLI nowadays.

    Kanboard: is a lightweight Kanban project management tool, it might not have every feature under the sun but it's the most snappy project management tool I've ever used, looks simple and runs well. I honestly love it, what a nice thing to have.

    Most modern text editors and IDEs: I personally pay for JetBrains IDEs but also like Visual Studio Code as a text editor and both have helped me immensely, they're reasonably performant when you have the RAM, look nice, often give you suggestions about how to improve your code and also have a plethora of plugins in their ecosystems. Nowadays I unapologetically use LLMs as well and overall it feels like I have these great tools and cool autocomplete (that is sometimes a bit silly and wrong) at my disposal, that makes me happy.

    Kdenlive: imagine if there was a successor to Windows Movie Maker, though something that gets most of the important stuff out of Sony Vegas, except is also completely free and works on most platforms. Kdenlive is all of that and also somehow quite pleasant to use, I actually prefer it to DaVinci resolve. There is a bit of a learning curve to any piece of software like this, but everything mostly makes sense in this one.

    Gitea: I still use this for my personal Git repositories and integrating with CI systems and it's lightweight, looks good and just feels pleasant to use. Previously I self-hosted GitLab and constantly ran into resource exhaustion as well as doubts about the next update is going to corrupt all of my data and break (it did), so now I use Gitea instead.

    Drone CI: a container native CI solution that I can also self host. It's container oriented, integrates with Gitea nicely, is similarly nice to GitLab CI and doesn't cause me headaches like Jenkins would.

    Docker: yes, even Docker desktop. It just makes working with containers really pleasant and predictable, even when something like Podman also exists (and also is great). I don't know, I feel like Docker really saved me from having brittle legacy environments, even self-contained containers with health checks and resource limits with still the same brittle code inside of those make me feel way more safe.

  • Build and deploy a REST API with Postgres database in TypeScript
    2 projects | | 15 Apr 2024
    Note: Before running your application in the next step, make sure you have Docker installed and running. It's required to locally run Encore applications with databases.
  • Introducing WP Setup
    3 projects | | 13 Apr 2024
    Developing WordPress plugins and themes often requires a reliable development environment. Current we have good solutions as wp-env from Autommatic, Local WP from WP Engine, Docker, XAMPP (for old ones) and so on. All this can be good suits for a development environment, specially Local WP that is probably the easiest one to get up and running and wp-env that leverages Docker as a development environment in a very easy way to use.
  • Building Scalable GraphQL Microservices With Node.js and Docker: A Comprehensive Guide
    6 projects | | 10 Apr 2024
    Docker, an open-source development platform, provides containerization technology for building and packaging applications along with their dependencies into portable images.
  • Building Llama as a Service (LaaS)
    14 projects | | 8 Apr 2024
    With each app containerized with Docker, this allows it to be run on any other developer's machine also running Docker. Although I had automated deployments to Heroku without this, I decided to upload each service to a container registry.
  • The power of the CLI with Golang and Cobra CLI
    9 projects | | 6 Apr 2024
    Today we are going to see all the power that a CLI (Command line interface) can bring to development, a CLI can help us perform tasks more effectively and lightly through commands via terminal, without needing an interface. For example, git and Docker, we practically use their CLI all the time, when we execute a git commit -m "commit message" or docker ps -a we are using a CLI. I'm going to leave an article that details what a CLI is.

    Docker (required): Understanding Docker is crucial for deploying software in containers, making your project portable and scalable. I use it for start Folo server.
  • Tools for Linux Distro Hoppers
    7 projects | | 27 Mar 2024
    Docker is a containerization tool that ships your app with all the necessary dependencies. Using DevContainer makes developing software inside a container possible. Several editors, e.g., Visual Studio Code and JetBrains, already support DevContainer. If you use other editors like VIM or Helix, you might develop software directly inside the container or need to find another workaround. But if you are too lazy to configure VIM like me, use VSCode.
  • Introducing DevOps Toolkit
    3 projects | | 17 Mar 2024
    That's why I created the DevOps Toolkit to solve these problems. It's built on top of the docker platform. I wanted to make it easier for developers and operations teams to get started with DevOps without the headaches of tool compatibility, setup, maintenance, and keeping everything up to date.
  • How to Set Up a Docker Container
    3 projects | | 13 Mar 2024
    Docker is a tool that makes it easier for developers to create, deploy, and run applications using containers. Containers package your application code with all its dependencies. So, the application can run smoothly across different computing environments.
