LXC Jessie Template

Debian Jessie LXC Template

Debian Jessie is an outdated release of Debian, but you might need to install it in order to test migration from it.

I usually use LXC, and when I try to setup a Jessie release with lca-create, it fails because it is no more in the LXC official regitry.

I then needed to look for a way to build one of my own.

I looked for a YAML definition file here: https://discuss.linuxcontainers.org/t/looking-for-debian-jessie-yaml-file/11422/3, I got an answer to get it from a previous commit: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/lxc/lxc-ci/ef3a9803d760d81532caf832248f2f39093b21c8/images/debian.yaml

I then installed distrobuilder then launched image building with

sudo ${HOME}/go/bin/distrobuilder build-lxc debian.yaml \
  -o image.architecture=amd64 \
  -o image.release=jessie --debug

The nex step is to create the container not with a "download" template, but with a "local" one:

lxc-create -n d8-test -t local -- --metadata meta.tar.xz --fstree rootfs.tar.xz

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 &quo

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 "
