create an LVM volume

Goal

On a machine with LVM installed I would like to create some more /tmp space

Recipe

Ask for information
   # vgs   VG    #PV #LV #SN Attr   VSize   VFree     scsi0   1   3   0 wz--n- 461,10G 195,10G   scsi1   1   1   0 wz--n- 931,51G  23,85G 
   # lvdisplay    ... 
Create the LVM according to the space left on the Volume group:
   #lvcreate  -L 200G scsi0 -n tmp   Logical volume "tmp" created 
 # lvdisplay  ...  --- Logical volume ---   LV Name                /dev/scsi0/tmp   VG Name                scsi0   LV UUID                ea10iW-wAnS-lUSA-clHW-X2M5-ibN3-uAUrws   LV Write Access        read/write   LV Status              available   # open                 0   LV Size                200,00 GB   Current LE             51200   Segments               1   Allocation             inherit   Read ahead sectors     auto   - currently set to     256   Block device           253:3 ... 
Format it
 # mkfs.ext3 /dev/scsi0/tmp 
Mount and use it
 # rm -rf /tmp/* ;  # mount -t ext3 /dev/mapper/scsi0-tmp /tmp 
Note: use "/dev/mapper/scsi0-tmp" not "/dev/scsi0/tmp"
To remove it
 # lvremove /dev/scsi0/tmp

npm run build base-href

Using NPM to specify base-href When building an Angular application, people usually use "ng" and pass arguments to that invocation. Typically, when wanting to hard code "base-href" in "index.html", one will issue: ng build --base-href='https://ngx.rktmb.org/foo' I used to build my angular apps through Bamboo or Jenkins and they have a "npm" plugin. I got the habit to build the application with "npm run build" before deploying it. But the development team once asked me to set the "--base-href='https://ngx.rktmb.org/foo'" parameter. npm run build --base-href='https://ngx.rktmb.org/foo did not set the base href in indext.html After looking for a while, I found https://github.com/angular/angular-cli/issues/13560 where it says: You need to use −− to pass arguments to npm scripts. This did the job! The command to issue is then: npm run build -- --base-href='https://ngx.rktmb.org/foo&

Emacs TypeScript Development

Emacs Configuration for Typescript In order to comfortably develop on Node, React or Angular projects with Emacs, TIDE is a good solution. We have TypeScript code highlight (that is the minimum!) and code completion based on the codebase (not only on locally defined and builtins) In order to achieve that: Install Emacs (24+) Install Node Install Typescript (which will provide "tsserver") Install TIDE and some usefull dependencies Configure Emacs to use all those Node is then installed in " /home/mihamina/Apps/node-v12.18.0-linux-x64/bin ": you should add it to your PATH. Installing Typescript is done with: npm install --save typescript @types/browserify After that, "tsserver" will be in " /home/mihamina/node_modules/.bin " Then comes the installation of TIDE: With the Emacs package manager, M-x package-install , install "tide". Do the same for "web-mode", "flycheck", "company" "js2-mode" and "
