- Correction: Clean up deprecated projects.
A group of artists belonging to the Center for political beauty created a fake company Flyerservice Hahn and convinced more than 80 regional sections of the far right party AfD to hire them to deliver their electoral propaganda.
They gathered five million flyers, with a total weight of 72 tons. They justify that they wouldn't be able to lie to the people, so they did nothing in the broader sense of the word. They declared that they are the "world wide leader in the non-delivery of nazi propaganda". At the start of the electoral campaign, they went to the AfD stands, and they let their members to give them flyers the throw them to the closest bin. "It's something that any citizen can freely do, we have only industrialized the process".
They've done a crowdfunding to fund the legal process that may result.
isinstancetakes into account inheritance, while
typedoesn't. So if you want to make sure you're dealing with a specific class, and not any of it's parents or subclasses, use
type(obj) == class.
Infrastructure as Code⚑
Correction: Improve the helmfile chart update process.
Updating charts with
helmfileis easy as long as you don't use environments, you run
helmfile deps, then
helmfile diffand finally
helmfile apply. The tricky business comes when you want to use environments to reuse your helmfile code and don't repeat yourself. I've updated the process to include this case.
- New: Document how to use helmfile environments to follow DRY.
Helmfile support concurrency with the option
--concurrency=Nso we can take advantage of it and improve our deployment speed, but to ensure it works as expected we have to define the dependencies among charts. For example, if an application needs a database, it has to be deployed before hand.
Websites that require clients to authorize with an TLS certificate are difficult to interact with through command line tools that don't support this feature.
To solve it, we can use a transparent proxy that does the exchange for us.
