    And, for the record, if you ever need to do something cross falls down on and Docker isn't suited to (eg. some of my sites are on a shared webhost that uses FreeBSD), the simplest way I've found is to use Vagrant with a script like this to run inside Vagrant to copy the project in, trigger a build, and then copy the binary out.

    Have a look at vagrant to spin up VMs quickly, then use 'em to do stuff like configure a salt environment - you could incorporate cron jobs here ;)

  • How to choose the right API Gateway
    15 projects | | 22 Nov 2022
    Another point to consider is how difficult is it to install the API Gateway or redeploy the gateway when changes are made. Check what installation options are offered. Most modern API Gateways can be installed in many different ways(Package based, Docker, Helm, RPM) in any environment (Linux, Windows, macOS). For example, one of the biggest advantages of Kong is its wide range of installation choices, with pre-made containers such as Docker and Vagrant so you can get a deployment running quickly.
  • From WampServer, to Vagrant, to QEMU
    5 projects | | 8 Nov 2022
    Laravel wanted to make the entire PHP development process as seamless as possible. At the time, Laravel achieved this with Laravel Homestead, apre-packaged Vagrant box. Everything you would need would be bundled into a virtual machine, nice and neat, away from your OS. And this was how I was introduced to Vagrant. A means of packaging virtual machines into a portable format, so you could easily create local development environments. Vagrant worked by using a Vagrantfile to describe the virtual machine you would want to use, how it would be provisioned, the ports you would forward, and the filepaths you would want shared from host to guest. All of these tasks would be handled by the provider, the underlying virtual machine program itself, in my case, VirtualBox. Perhaps the one thing I liked the most about Vagrant, was the ability to provision my machine, clear down if I wanted to and have it back in a clean state for development.
