I started using AWS CodePipeline to automate deploys of my projects to dedicated EC2 instances. Here is a video explaining how to set up one of these pipelines.
My old personal site got hacked and trashed. When I built it, I didn’t know much about the web world, and stumbled into a rough custom solution. I had stood up a MediaWiki server, which uses MySQL, as a place to record some project ideas. I was doing this funky thing where I would write a blog/project entry in MediaWiki’s markdown forms, and then convert them to HTML to display on my site.
I just set up a hugo blog, and am recording the useful commands here. Creating a New Post: You can create different types of content, which the theme must support. For example, this Academic theme supports type = ["post", "publication", "project"] jacobi@licobra ~/site $ hugo new <type>/new-post.md /home/jacobi/site/content/post/new-post.md created Changing the Theme: Browse the themes site Click the github link Clone the github page into <hugo root>/themes/<theme name> Modify config.toml
I started using cmake and SWIG on a project recently. This post is to document my experience with these technologies. Here’s a bit of background. The project I’m referring to, among other things, has an API, written in C, that hooks into MongoDB. Since it’s an API, I wanted to create a shared object so that I could implement various interfaces into it. The first interface I wrote was also in C, so linking to this library was no problem.
