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 "json-mode".

Finally comes the Emacs Configuration.
I paste my whole configuration, feel free to remove what you dont like.

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=''

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=''" parameter.

npm run build --base-href='

did not set the base href in indext.html

After looking for a while, I found 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=''

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= " >> /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
