BASH POST ElasticSearch

Looking for a way to log messages to an Elasticsearch instance, I searched and found that this would be my preferred one.

Prerequisites are to have jq and curl installed.

Write a function elk_log():

    # Default configuration

    # Overridden if ENV vars set:
    if [ -n "$GW_HOST" ]; then	ELK_HOST=$GW_HOST; fi
    if [ -n "$GW_PORT" ]; then	ELK_PORT=$GW_PORT; fi
    TSTAMP=$( date --iso-8601=sec )

    curl -H "Content-Type:application/json" \
	 -X POST --silent \
	 --data "$( jq -n \
		      --arg tstamp "$TSTAMP" \
		      --arg message "$1" \
		      '{timestamp: $tstamp, message: $message}' )" http://${ELK_HOST}:${ELK_PORT}/${ELK_IDX}/_doc

Then call this with:

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='

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 "
