It’s has been a long time since I had time for some useful and useless stuff. So we (isticktoit) found some useless stuff on Heise open: A Linux Retro-Gaming distribution and thought about bringing some old stuff up to ‚waste‘ some hours.
In this case I tried the new release of the Lakka distribution, which is mostly for Retro/Emulator-Gaming. It contains a lot of emulators from Atari up to PlayStation and Nintendo.
Have you ever played or streamed sound controlled in a command line? I myself play & stream every sound controlled through command line interface. To achieve that I use an odroid c2 connected to my av-receiver.
Docker is the world leading software containerization platform. I tried using GitLab as versioncontrol system and Jenkings as continuos integration system but the system turned out as not completly useful.
In that way a colleague told me about a system he wants to create based on Docker.
What we want:
a git system under ouer control
a continuos integration that is flexible and customizable
every system available per SSL connection
Git Service -> GoGs – Go Git Service
It’s a simple self-hosted Git servise.
easy to install, cross-platform, lightweight and OpenSourse
It contains everything importent to develop something in collaboration.
For one year I have tried to create my own YouTube Audio Player. I wanted something that can play my playlists and favorite music from YouTube, but I only wanted the sound – no video. In that case I usually used a separate browser-window or -tab and that was sometimes very annoying.
Currently I’m working on a private project with Angular 2 (v.2.0.0-beta.0 | TypeScript), Electron (Atom Shell) and NodeJS.
I had some issues with Angular 2 and webpack modular bundler.
It took me many hours to get the InterProcess Comunication from the Electron to the NodeJS running. The Problem is that the IPC-module is a native Electron-module and webpack is trying to find it in the node_modules folder. StackOverflow issue
In Angular 2 you can write components, services, …. and more. I wanted to use a service to get data from one component to another but I never got the data exchanged between them.
Solution: In my case I used the Componenttag „providers“ to create an instance of the declared service but every time you write „providers“ with a service in it, you are creating a new instance of the service and you will never get data from one component to another. You start your app with that
since then you have an instance of the provided services. To use them, you only have to import the service and to write in the somponent-constructor
constructor( %varname% : %servicename% )
The combination of Angular 2 (TypeScript), Electron (Atom Shell) and NodeJS is very nice. With that components you are able to build a client application rapidly. My next „nice to have“ is to integrate a CSS-preprocessor (SASS, LASS, …) in my projects to write CSS-code in the ways of a programmer.
Im Süden Österreichs gilt heuer ein Feuerwerks-Verbot an Silvester wegen der Trockenheit, die in letzter Zeit herrschte.
Das hat David inspiriert, einen Countdown zu schreiben, der zu Mitternacht ein virtuelles Feuerwerk initiiert.
Zum Countdown gesellen sich Bilder aus der Umgebung – die mit wenigen Eingriffen im Code natürlich ausgetauscht werden können.
Man kann auch die Punkte 2 und 3 in einem Schritt durchführen.
Will man die derzeit verfügbaren anderen „Kartenlayer“ von basemap.at einbinden (zB die Orthophotos, Basemap grau,…), so muss man einfach die Tiles-URL in L.tileLayer anpassen – entsprechend den Angaben, die sich im getCapabilities.xml des WMTS-Dienstes finden.
