email address to system user

Email address to user

My goal is to build a bash script to which I give "mihamina@rktmb.org" and "password" as argument, and then it creates a system user named "mihamina-rktmb-org".

The discribed method requires you to install the package "whois", containing "mkpasswd". Dont ask me why.

At the same time, the script will insert an alias entry into an alias flat file. For "mihamina@rktmb.org", it will insert

 mihamina: mihamina-rktmb-org 
in "/etc/exim4/virtual/rktmb.org".

The BASH script

 #!/bin/bash EMAIL=$1 PASS=$2 EXIM_VIRT_DIR="/etc/exim4/virtual/" DOMAINE=$(echo ${EMAIL} | awk -F"@" '{print $2}') LOCALPART=$(echo ${EMAIL} | awk -F"@" '{print $1}') U=$(echo ${EMAIL} | sed 's/\./-/g' | sed 's/@/-/g') CRYPT1_PASS=$(mkpasswd ${PASS}) echo ${EMAIL} echo ${PASS} echo ${DOMAINE} echo ${LOCALPART} echo ${CRYPT1_PASS} echo ${U} useradd  \ --home-dir /home/${U} \ --create-home  \ --password ${CRYPT1_PASS} \ --shell "/bin/bash" ${U} echo "${LOCALPART}:  ${U}" >> ${EXIM_VIRT_DIR}${DOMAINE} invoke-rc.d exim4 restart

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'

dockerfile multiline to file

Outputing a multiline string from Dockerfile
I motsly use a Dockerfile by sourcing from a base ditribution: CentOS or Debian.
But I also have a local mirror and would like to use it for packages installation.

Espacially on CentOS it is about many lines to write to the /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo file.

Easiest way: one RUN per line The first method that comes in mind is to issue one RUN per line to write.
Here you are:

RUN echo "[base] " > /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo RUN echo "name=CentOS-$releasever - Base " >> /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo RUN echo "baseurl=ftp://packages-infra.mg.rktmb.org/pub/centos/7/base-reposync-7 " >> /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo RUN echo "gpgcheck=0 " >>…

Jira workflow for new projects

Associated workflow creation I'm a Jira Cloud user and begining from some version 6, I noticed that when I create a project, it automatically creates a Workflow and Issue Scheme that is prepended by the project key and which is a copy of the default scheme.
I always had to make a cleanup after creating a project. Default workflow for new projects I also miss a feature that would allow me to make a custom workflow (and globally custom project setting) the default for new projects I create.
Solution: Create with shared configuration While searching, I noticed that with Jira Cloud which is version 7.1.0 at the time I write, there is a link at the bottom of the "Create project" wizard:
"Create with shared configuration" will allow me to select the project I want the new one to share configuration with.

The new created project will use the same configuration as the project I selectThere will be no creation of Workflow and Issue Scheme that I need to cleanup
