ZTE G X760

The ZTE G X760 is also known as "Orange VEGAS". I use one branded "T-Mobile", byt unlocked. I use it to phone and as a backup modem. It's a GPRS (2G) phone. When plugged to a computer through the USB, the telephone promts if it will be connected as "Mass storage" or "COM Port". Depending on the usage, You've got to choose.

Blueline

Blueline is one of the best Internet Service provider in Madagascar. With their mobile telephone product, they have a Data service. I use it to access Internet, with my telephone (see above), on my Ubuntu and Debian laptop. The APN is "bluenet". No password required.

Connecting to Internet

After pluggin the phone and choosing "COM Port", the phone is then detected as a modem

         cdc_acm 3-2:1.1: ttyACM0: USB ACM device         usbcore: registered new interface driver cdc_acm         cdc_acm: v0.26:USB Abstract Control Model driver for USB modems and ISDN adapters        
Then, I had to setup several files:
/etc/chatscripts/bluenet
       ABORT BUSY       ABORT 'NO CARRIER'       ABORT ERROR       REPORT CONNECT       TIMEOUT 10       "" "ATZ &F"       OK 'AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","bluenet"'       TIMEOUT 60       OK "ATD*99***1#"       CONNECT \d\c      
/etc/ppp/peers/bluenet
       hide-password       noauth       modem       connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/chatscripts/bluenet"       debug       /dev/ttyACM0       115200       defaultroute       noipdefault       user any       password any       remotename bluenet       ipparam bluenet       usepeerdns       novj       lcp-echo-interval 0      
To connect to internet, just do: pon bluenet and tail your logs.

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 "
