  • Vagrant

    Project mention: Best Practices Setting up Your Local Development Environment | | 2022-06-22

    However, creating and setting up a Virtual Machine manually is not the best in terms of productivity. The solution is to use a tool that will allow you to create and set up these environments automatically. This tool is Vagrant.

  • Chef

    Chef Infra, a powerful automation platform that transforms infrastructure into code automating how infrastructure is configured, deployed and managed across any environment, at any scale

    Project mention: Ask HN: Codebases with great, easy to read code? | | 2022-03-21

    I've found the Chef project ( to be high quality and easily readable but I've been working with Chef for like 8 years at this point which might be influencing how I view it.

    Hashicorp projects also seem very well done too especially given how extensible they are.

  • wordmove

    Multi-stage command line deploy/mirroring and task runner for Wordpress

    Project mention: How are other's creating WP staging sites? | | 2022-02-25

    If it's a bigger website then I will use two stacks. Same docker-compose code, different environment variables. One stack will be on my production server, and the other will be on my development server. They are the same stack since the stack only defines the infrastructure, not the code, so you can use the same code for two different environments. All mounted volumes (mysql, wordpress cms files, media, plugins, etc) are ignored in my git repos. I use Wordmove to transfer files and data between environments. It has push/pull capabilities and will automatically change your permalinks for you, so you can pull data from your production environment into development, or you can push development data to production. Very useful.

    Project mention: Automating Jekyll card generation with ruby’s Ferrum gem | | 2022-05-12

  • free-agent-sleeper

    Automate adding of free agents in fantasy football leagues

    Project mention: Seeking Ruby on Rails volunteer for open-source Fantasy Football repo | | 2021-09-17

    Repo Situation: It hasn't been maintained. There was this bug halting it from working. I fixed it with this PR. But I don't know Ruby so my PR needs a code review. More importantly, it would be great if someone that knows Ruby can code in the scheduling/cronjob (eg with the whenever gem) because without scheduled add/drop this repo is useless. The scheduling would ideally work locally so any low-tech person can use this.
