Or, avoiding dealing with RabbitMQ clustering
In this week’s Yak shaving: Trying to write a Terraform Provider in Rust.
TL;DR - there’s a list of Rust projects at the end of this post that want Hacktoberfest submissions, and are at least fairly decent ones :)
We’ve recently been travelling around a bit with our toddler (mostly to/from his nursery), and have occasionally run into the issue of a lift that isn’t working, which is a bit of an issue when you’ve got a buggy and a tired toddler that you’d really like to not have to navigate up some steps with. My partner prodded the internet wondering if there was any sites that provided such data, and some answers eventually came back.
Over the past couple of years I’ve been working on a particular side project. I’ve had the idea kicking around for a while, and planned on releasing it to the public (at least in a limited form) last year, but then 2020 happened, and we’re still in all of that in 2021, so there’s been a few delays. I’m still a way away from actually releasing anything, but now is a good time to talk about some of the infrastructure work there, as I think it’s worth sharing.
Before I start this I should clarify something: yes, I know it’s just a show for kids, and I’m a fan of the lessons and techniques it’s using behind the candy-coated facade. However it’s also weirding me out in various ways, and so I felt this needed discussing. I’ve only actually watched the first two episodes (along with my toddler), but I think this got enough of the core concept over that I can at least vaguely talk about this.
TL;DR: Proposal for a way to define multiple-machine systems in a immutable way, without requiring by-hand layouts.
Lewisham Council have what at first glance appears to be a perfectly good webpage for figuring out what day your recycling is on. Except, there’s no API, and the pages appear to have been designed for the explicit goal of breaking every option for scripting them.
I saw a blog post recently by Simon Willison that shows you how to use a somewhat hidden feature of Github (as in it seems well known on the internet, but it’s not in their docs). Normally, a Github profile just contains either a random set of repositories, or you can pin particular repositories if you want. However, it turns out there’s an extra hidden feature: if you have a repo with the same name as your username (e.g. palfrey/palfrey for me) and it has a README.md, that will get displayed at the top of your profile.Previous page Next page
