Nuxt.js overview, running Vue.js on the server to pre-render on the server

(September 4, 2018) Vue.js is an application framework for the front end running inside browsers. It supports building single-page-applications (SPA) or simply enhancing a web page with fancy interactivity. However it isn't always useful to have a big application running in the client. With Nuxt.js the Vue.js code is pre-rendered on the server so that the initial load of the page has already-rendered HTML. Subsequent interactivity on the page is still managed by client-side Vue.js code running in the browser.

Showing a tree structure, like a file-system, in Vue.js

(July 26, 2018) Many kinds of applications show a tree structure of data items, such as files in a file system. Over the last couple weeks I implemented (blog.sourcerer.io) a simple Markdown editor in Vue.js/Electron - and while the sample application did not show a file-system tree a full version of the application would do so. We use this sort of widget all the time in programs and web applications, but do you know how to implement such a widget? Speaking for myself I could probably work it out - it's nested UL and LI elements with some custom styling and whatnot - but I'd rather use a pre-baked tree component for Vue.js instead. The application shown here demonstrates using one such tree component.

Add/remove list items in Vue.js built with Bulma/Buefy

(July 21, 2018) Most applications with item lists you want to add or remove individual items. With Vue.js it's easy and obvious how to render an item list. What's not so obvious is how to manipulate the list afterwards. The Vue.js documentation doesn't say how to remove items or change items.

Rudimentary form validation in Vue.js with Buefy/Bulma

(July 21, 2018) As a follow-up to Software Development we want to study form validation. That example includes a little form in which we enter some information, and we want a little bit of validation to make sure we don't add bad entries.

Getting started with Vue.js application development

(July 20, 2018) Vue.js is an exciting new framework for developing front-end JavaScript applications. It promises to be a "Progressive" web framework, and I don't think they mean in a Political sense but means that Vue.js can be plugged into the part of an application which requires a richer experience. It is also supposed to be Approachable, works directly from HTML, CSS and JavaScript, while being Versatile and Performant. In this example we'll build a starter application, and embed it into an HTML web page. Specifically, this web page.

Compiling Rust for Raspberry Pi

(June 28, 2018) Instructions for cross-compiling Rust code to ARMv7, such as the Raspberry Pi.

Setup Google Recaptcha v2 in PHP scripts

(June 9, 2018)

Recaptcha has been around a long time, fighting the good fight against spammers. One of my sites has been using Recaptcha for years, long enough to require updating to new API implementations a couple times. Google has updated to Recaptcha v2 and soon v3, and somehow my site stopped enforcing Recaptcha's with the subsequent Spammer intrusions. Fixing the implementation proved to be difficult, especially as the available tutorials missed some details.

Global and Local Secondary indexes in DynamoDB

(June 8, 2018) Years ago, Amazon engineers studying SQL queries learned complex queries with JOINs and whatnot were not widely used, and from that observation developed DynamoDB. DynamoDB is a NoSQL database available in the Amazon cloud service offering. It has some interesting characteristics, one of which is the method to use secondary indexes.

How to get AWS SDK for Node.js to return Promises to use with async/await functions

(June 8, 2018) The AWS SDK for JavaScript/Node.js documentation describes receiving results the old way, using a callback function. In the modern era of JavaScript we know what to do -- we wrap such functions in await new Promse, hold our nose, and embed the callback within the Promise. I published an article on the Sourcerer blog describing how to interact with DynamoDB from a Node.js Lambda function, and then a reader asked why it used "await new Promise". A bit of searching revealed that indeed Amazon had updated the SDK to support Promises, but it seems the SDK documentation has not been updated. What follows is a quick example of an AWS Lambda function calling DynamoDB methods using Promise objects in an async/await, and deployed using the Serverless Framework.

Getting started with using Node.js and the Serverless framework on AWS Lambda

(June 3, 2018) While Amazon's AWS platform is excellent, there are other similar platforms from Google, IBM, Microsoft and others. Why should our code be written solely to support the AWS infrastructure? The Serverless framework makes it easy to reuse the same application code on any of these functions-as-a-service platforms. Perhaps more importantly, it simplifies coding against these platforms. The AWS platform is incredibly complex, and using the Serverless framework is simplifies developing applications for the AWS platform.

Introduction to Node.js with the Serverless framework on AWS Lambda

(May 19, 2018) AWS Lambda has excellent support for Node.js code. As of this writing Lambda supports Node.js 8.10, meaning we have excellent async function support and other modern ES2015+ language features.

Introduction to Node.js with the Serverless framework on AWS Lambda

(May 19, 2018) AWS Lambda lets programmers focus on their code, with AWS taking care of all the deployment drama issues.

Getting started with AWS Lambda, Amazons Function as a Service platform

(May 7, 2018) AWS Lambda lets developers write code, execute the code at any scale in the AWS cloud, without worrying about implementing the scaling algorithm. Lambda focuses on very small modules - the name implies Functions, and that is the preferred granularity level. "Function as a Service" platforms are available from several providers, AWS Lambda having been joined by Microsoft Azure Functions, Google Cloud Functions, and IBM Cloud Functions. All are focusing on the same idea, Functions as the granularity level, and automatic deployment and scaling, letting developers focus on their code and the cloud provider focuses on the rest. AWS Lambda is the most developed of these, so lets take a look.

Simple Node.js AWS Lambda function

Bare-metal Rust for AVR/Arduino and ARM microcontrollers coming soon

(April 28, 2018) In contemplating a project for an embedded microcontroller product, the customer is suggesting C++ and I'm having bad memories of memory allocations gone haywire. I've heard good things about Rust, being a modern language with the same mindset of C/C++ in terms of doing low level operations. Would Rust make a good choice for embedded device programming? Seems that it's still early days for that dream, as the tools aren't all lined up. Important thing is that folks are thinking in that direction and working towards that result. For some specific embedded CPU's it is possible to configure a Rust/LLVM toolchain that works fine.

Introduction to AWS Command-Line-Interface (CLI)

(April 7, 2018) The AWS CLI is a tool you install on your laptop making it easier to access Amazon Web Services infrastructure. With the AWS CLI Tool you have command-line access to every AWS service.

Learn to use Docker for application development and deployment

(April 3, 2018)

Docker is a wonderful tool that abstracts away all kinds of details about configuring and maintaining Linux Containers. The power to simply type "docker run image-name" and have a bunch of complexity automatically handled is great. However Docker is one of those tools with lots of moving parts behind the scenes, and some training is needed to use it well.

Moving Docker's files to a custom location

(January 30, 2018)

Docker is a wonderful tool that abstracts away all kinds of details about configuring and maintaining Linux Containers. The power to simply type "docker run image-name" and have a bunch of complexity automatically handled is great. But you may want to change Docker's defaults, and just how do you do so? In my case "/var/lib/docker" would be on an SSD drive, and to lengthen its lifetime I want to minimize the number of writes to that drive. Moving this directory to the SSD should help with that goal.

Installing Composer on a Dreamhost VPS, or perhaps other VPS's

(January 12, 2018)

Modern PHP software development has been modernized by Composer. My exposure to Composer is because the Drupal team adopted the Symfony framework, which in turn is based on Composer. Installing Drupal any longer seemingly requires to first install Composer. Which isn't installed by default on Dreamhost VPS's, but it's not too hard to get it going.

These github alternatives give you powerful git hosting, on your own terms

(January 8, 2018)

Git is a powerful source code revision control system, letting teams large and small track changes between team members. Github is an excellent service for hosting Git repositories. The Github corporation offers powerful free features, and even more powerful paid features, and software teams around the world are using Github to collaborate. But what if you want to, or must, host your repositories yourself? Some corporate security teams require no use of 3rd party services. Are you stuck using bare git?

Fortunately several Bitbucket and Github alternatives exist letting you create source repositories similar to Github, with most of the capabilities of Github. These open source Github/Bitbucket alternatives can be installed on your own hardware.

Accessing the Spring H2 database console when X-Frame-Options says deny

(January 5, 2018)

You're coding a Spring Boot application, need a database, and quickly configure in the H2 in-memory database thinking it'll be easy. Rerun the application, do a few things, then try to get into the H2 console, and it's a blank screen. The JavaScript console says "Refused to display ... in a frame because it set 'X-Frame-Options' to 'deny'." and there's a sinking feeling, it's another one of those obtuse error messages from the bowels of somewhere you've never heard of. Fortunately the solution is easy.

What is In-memory Computing?

(December 5, 2017)

Traditional computer architecture has a performance bottleneck due to the slow speed of persistent data storage on disk. We've developed complex systems like databases, and even distributed databases, to manage the data used in computations. The key limitation is the latency between requesting data, and getting the result. With in-memory computing the data is right there in quickly accessed memory, which greatly amplifies system performance.

Solving HttpMessageNotWritableException, Could not write JSON: Could not set field value in Spring Boot

(October 16, 2017) My experience of programming on the Spring platform is that you'll be coding along, everything is going great, until an inscrutible complex error message emerges from the depths of who knows where. This message seemed to involve some module or another having created a round peg to fit into a square hole. That is, I'd sent a GET request to retrieve a large object tree, and it seemed that while filling data into a field of a subsidiary object Spring/Hibernate/etc chose the wrong data type, and it threw up an error. The specific type of error was receiving no discussion anywhere, so it was impossible to see how others had solved the problem. The documentation was of no use in explaining anything about this. But, after a couple days of trials and errors and more errors, a solution was found. And, indeed, Spring/Hibernate had chosen the wrong data type to fill into one of the fields, and the solution is fairly simple.

Persisting complex Embeddable/Embedded objects in Spring/Hibernate

(October 8, 2017) Hibernate and Spring and the Java Persistence packages make for a powerful combination. You can define a complex tree of objects, and the system automagically creates the database schema, and automagically saves and retrieves that object tree from the database. It means you can innocently code away, until one day you try to include an Embedded object but it silently fails to be saved to the database, Hibernate silently fails to create database columns for that object, and when retrieving the object for which the Embedded object is a field, the object is null. No error messages are printed in the log. Instead you're left wondering, why didn't Hibernate persist this object? What's presented here is a solution using EntityListener methods to convert values in and out of shadow values stored in the Entity.

A fix for "PersistentObjectException - detached entity passed to persist" in Spring Boot

(September 6, 2017) Error messages coming out of Spring can be more than inscrutible. As discussed in my solution to transient unsaved properties, I'm defining a REST API using Swagger/OpenAPI targeting a Spring Boot implementation. The object models are complex, with lots of nested objects. Today's inscrutible message, "detached entity passed to persist", doesn't make much sense as a phrase does it? Detached? Detached Entity? Say what? Turns out it's not that hard a problem to fix.

A fix for org.hibernate.TransientPropertyValueException in Spring Boot

(September 1, 2017)

Error messages coming out of Spring can be more than inscrutible. In this case I'm defining a REST API using Swagger/OpenAPI targeting a Spring Boot implementation. The object models are complex, with lots of nested objects. It turns out you can POST a big blob of JSON with all kinds of structure, and Spring/JPA/Hibernate will swallow the whole thing and automatically parcel everything out to the corresponding database table. If you define the JPA annotations correctly, that is.

Get an annotation incorrect, and you'll be left scratching your head over what the heck you're being told by the error message. The Spring Team promises on a huge stack of bibles that Spring Boot automatically takes care of zillions of things for you, and it's so easy to write your code. In my experience it's instead a matter of papering complexity over complexity over a system containing about a thousand kitchen sinks worth of excess capabilities. There's no amount of papering-over that kind of complexity that will make the system simpler. But, the boss-man says to use Spring Boot, so here goes.

Deploying Docker images to a server without using a Docker Registry

(August 30, 2017)

We formerly deployed server applications to a Linux server using manual processes. An advanced team might use shell scripts to automate deployment. Over time tools like Chef or Ansible and more grew to handle ever-more-complex server application deployment scenarios. A few years ago, Docker came onto the scene with a whole new approach involving building a "Container" housing a complete operating system image that runs your application. Having built the Container, it's easy to ship that container to a server or run it on your laptop. The compelling gain is having the exact same development environment on your laptop as is deployed to your servers. Using the EXACT same environment streamlines your work by removing a ton of potentially destabilizing variables.

The preferred method is to build a Docker container image on your laptop, or on a build server, and upload the image to a Docker Registry. The image can then be downloaded from the Registry onto any number of systems.

What if you don't want to, or cannot, use a Registry? You could instead deploy the source code to the server, and build the container image on the server. That's a very unwise move, and it's better to ship the container image to the server. Turns out that is easy to do.

CSS Grid Changes Everything

(August 9, 2017)

Getting web content to layout as you want usually results in messy HTML and messy CSS. Limitations of both usually means you're nesting DIV's to get a structure where you can use various arcane CSS paradigms like absolute or relative positioning. CSS Grids changes all that. You can use simple HTML markup accompanied by straight-forward CSS rules to lay it out. It's a breath of fresh air. It's supported in ALL the modern web browsers.

Why not flexbox? Isn't that the thing that's supposed to be our page layout savior? The problem with flexbox is it runs in only one direction. For more complex layouts you need to nest flex containers. CSS Grid is a two-dimensional layout system and can handle more complex layouts.

Traditional CSS methodology, as well as flexbox, works from the content outward. CSS Grid works from the layout inward.

Throwing away local changes in Git workspace, allowing 'git pull' to proceed

(August 8, 2017)

Git is a powerful source code revision control system, letting teams large and small track changes between team members. It is widely used and very flexible. However, it's easy to get into an inscrutable state where it's not clear how to proceed.

Just now I found myself wishing to update my local repository with changes from co-workers. The repository contains UML models designed with Enterprise Architect, hence the primary thing in the repository is a large binary file. I'd been running Enterprise Architect on my local file, and there must have been some changes made to that file. As such Git told me there were local changes which I must merge before I could fetch the upstream changes. (specifically: Your local changes to the following files would be overwritten by merge) But I knew any change that had been made was unimportant, unneeded, and should be tossed away. Leaving me wondering how to throw away changes to a local Git repository.

Create a Spring Boot REST API using Swagger/OpenAPI "Generate Swagger OpenAPI REST API documentation for Spring Boot application"

(July 31, 2017)

The Swagger tools, and the OpenAPI format, are an excellent way to document REST API's and even to generate client or server stub libraries to ease implementation. The technology serves two purposes -- a) standardized documentation for REST API's, b) generating code from API documentation in several programming languages. An OpenAPI file is fairly simple to write, you declare REST endpoints, describe the parameters and the request type, and then describe responses. It allows you to define complex object models that can be used either as input to a service, or its output.

Unfortunately the Swagger website doesn't have adequate documentation of using the tools. And it proved difficult to find clear straight-forward tutorials showing how to get started. Even the most powerful tool can be hampered if folks are unable to use it.

The following tutorial is a complete demonstration of, starting from scratch, developing a small Spring Boot service using OpenAPI and the Swagger tools. We show how to go from an OpenAPI spec to generated Spring Boot code, and also how to generate an OpenAPI spec from running Spring Boot code. There are several issues with the workflow of generating code from the OpenAPI spec. It's more effective to instead write the service code, and add in the annotations required for the Swagger tools to generate the OpenAPI spec for you.

With the OpenAPI spec it's easy to produce interactive API documentation that programmers can try out directly in their web browser.

Correct character encoding with DOMDocument implementing a Wordpress content filter

(July 6, 2017) Using DOMDocument in a Wordpress content filter lets you correctly manipulate the content as HTML. It might be that Wordpress filters are commonly using regular expressions or text search/replace functions. While that can be fast and powerful, correctly changing HTML elements requires an HTML-oriented API. The specifics of HTML elements are such that regular expressions and text search/replace functions just don't cut it due to the many pitfalls from highly specific details of HTML. With DOMDocument you simply load the HTML into the library, then you use DOM functions to manipulate the HTML, then you serialize the DOM to HTML text, and voila powerful HTML manipulations easily performed. Unfortunately that method comes with its own pitfalls you must be careful of.

Best implementation of the Swagger UI tool for your OpenAPI based Spring Boot REST server

(June 15, 2017)

Among the Swagger Tools is Swagger UI, an excellent tool for browsing an OpenAPI specification, the methods defined in the specification, the data models used in the specification. Swagger UI even lets you interact with the service from the documentation. It's a most useful take on "documentation", and to large measure is the whole reason for adopting OpenAPI/Swagger.

Unfortunately implementing the springfox-swagger-ui plugin in a Spring Boot Swagger application gives you a Swagger UI implementatation that's nowhere near as nice/capable as the demo app you see at petstore.swagger.io. There is zero documentation on how to implement the improved Swagger UI via the springfox-swagger-ui plugin. Instead, after quite a bit of experimentation, it seems one must turn to the Swagger UI Docker container.

How to easily edit a Swagger/OpenAPI API specification using free tools

(June 15, 2017) The official way to edit a Swagger/OpenAPI document is using the Swagger Editor available through the swagger.io website, or to use the SwaggerHub website. The Editor can be run on your laptop inside a web browser which allows local JavaScript execution. As browsers tighten the screws on security the ability to do that may cease, and I see in the issue queue a request to make Electron versions of the Swagger tools. The SwaggerHub website is another option, especially as it offers lots of interesting features (at a fee). But, since OpenAPI is a free and open specification it's possible for others to develop tools. In this post we'll go over using the Swagger Editor, and using Atom to edit an OpenAPI specification.

Introduction to Time Series and InfluxDB

(May 30, 2017) Influx DB is an easy-to-use time-series database, that uses a familiar query syntax, allows for regular and irregular time series, and is part of a broad stack of platform components. This video goes over what Time Series Data is, a comparison of different Time Series Databases, and more.

Time-series data with InfluxDB, overview

(May 17, 2017) Time-series databases are used for scenarios involving collecting time-stamped data. You probably want to generate summaries (rollups and aggregations), data retention policies, and so forth. That every datum is time-stamped makes it immediately different from regular SQL databases. InfluxDB is an open source time-series database.

Easily use Let's Encrypt to HTTPS-protect your own server, for free

(2017-04-11 14:47 PDT) The search engines and browser makers are telling us to encrypt all websites. A driving factor is to protect everyone from not only miscreants wanting to hijack the web for nefarious goals, but the government security agencies who are snooping into everything. If everything on the Web is encrypted, then we'll all be better off. Until Let's Encrypt came along, the requirement to encrypt carried with it a high cost of paying for SSL certificates, and therefore many website owners would be unable to keep going. The free Lets Encrypt service opens HTTPS up to regular folk, allowing all website owners to encrypt their web traffic irregardless of how deep their pockets are. With that in mind, let's look into what it takes to set up HTTPS using Let's Encrypt.

SwaggerHub 101 An Introduction to Getting Started with SwaggerHub

(March 3, 2017) As the title suggest, this shows how to use SwaggerHub in a software development team. SwaggerHub covers a full life-cycle of API development in a team. Each project or "Organization" in SwaggerHub can have members and various settings. It can automatically generate a "mock API server" to try out the API directly via SwaggerHub.

Using Docker to host ARM toolchain to cross-compile C code

(2017-01-19 16:27) I'm starting up a project that will see me doing custom software development for an ARM single-board-computer running Linux. The recommendation isn't to do compiles ON the board, but instead to cross compile from a Linux workstation (Debian). But, I use a Mac laptop, as do most software engineers these days. While I could run VirtualBox to set up a Debian cross-compiling environment, Docker is much lighter weight. While Docker was originally targeted for deploying server applications, it is useful for packaging anything. In this case there's a ready-made set of Docker containers for cross-compilation including for ARM CPU's.

Swagger tutorial -- How to add Swagger OpenAPI to your REST API documentation

Make your own Raspberry Pi git repository server with Gogs and Docker

(2016-10-09 13:38) The Raspberry Pi is an amazing little computer that, while it's targeted at the DIY Hardware Maker, it is a full-fledged Linux computer that can be used to run services that used to require much bigger and more expensive computers. How long ago were office servers required to be $4000 systems from the likes of Dell Computers? It seems that the Raspberry Pi (and other tiny computers) can perform the same tasks at a low cost with minuscule energy requirements. To this end I'm setting up Gogs (a github-like server for Git repositories) on a Raspberry Pi. As I worked on the project it seemed most straightforward to use Docker to manage the Gogs process, and therefore the project became setting up Docker on Raspberry Pi to run other services.

Swagger and Open API Spec @codecampnyc 2016

(Oct 9, 2016)

Moving from "cloud-first" to "cloud-only" and therefore "API's" are more important than ever. Concept of the API Economy. Hence necessity for a better method to design REST-ful API's, and help others to use those API's. Another problem is the "Distributed Monolith" which is interlocking dependencies between microservices. Swagger is the solution.

Language agnostic. Helps to generate excellent documentation. No guesswork. Clearly documented REST API's.

Make a bash script detect the directory it's stored in, to access data there

(2016-09-19 15:52)

You may need to write a bash shell script that accesses data stored alongside the script, while your current working directory might be elsewhere. In my case the shell script needed to use Node.js scripts stored next to the shell scripts -- the shell script acting to simplify running the Node.js scripts. The "data" to be accessed in this case is the Node.js scripts, plus the support modules required to run them. You may have other data like a list of hostnames or who-knows-what.

InfluxDB CLI and Configuration Options

(Jul 27, 2016) Influx DB is an easy-to-use time-series database, that uses a familiar query syntax, allows for regular and irregular time series, and is part of a broad stack of platform components. The TICK stack is a set of four components that together make it quick and easy to collect time series data and graph it for users. One uses the CLI because it's always there, and is much easier than using CURL on the REST API.

Fixing 'Enter passphrase for /dev/fd/63' in a Gitlab CI job

(2016-06-30 16:53) If you're a Gitlab user you're probably hoping to use Gitlab CI to automate builds and deployments. You probably want to deploy something using rsync, using an SSH key for security. Unfortunately (in my opinion) the official Gitlab documentation is confusing. While the Gitlab team does provide example .gitlab-ci.yml files that are supposed to work, the actual specifics of what to do are sketchy, and I found myself puzzling over a curious error message: "Enter passphrase for /dev/fd/63" ... WTF?

Create hierarchical navigation for custom post types in Wordpress with PODS

(2015-06-20 23:27) On (longtailpipe.com) my Wordpress site I want to create "documentation" areas with a cluster of pages organized as a hierarchy, with an index to those pages showing as a sidebar. Many think of doing this for "Product Documentation", but I simply want to organize notes and additional material related to some books that I'm writing. Just as a book is organized by chapters and subsections, I want to hierarchically organize these pages.

Converting a MySQL enum for use in SQLite3

(2012-01-06 21:11) I've got a database & website I want to move from using MySQL to using SQLite3.  Well, I think I want to use SQLite3.  Their document saying what sorts of uses make sense for SQLite3 are directly in line with my website, and I do want to remove some of the load off of my MySQL server so that it can have  cycles free for more important purposes.

However I've run into a couple troubles converting the schema so that it fits within SQLite3's limited SQL support.  Turns out that it doesn't support some column types and indexes.  And that the SQL produced by mysqldump contains some MySQLisms which SQLite3 just doesn't understand.

Multiple headed Mercurial problems

(2008-11-20 20:37) Supposedly people who imbibe mercury become crazy as, well, a madhatter (so named because old-style hat-making practices involve the use of mercury). So maybe it sounds crazy to talk about multiple heads but in this case the mercury is the Mercurial source code management system. In Mercurial a 'head' is the endpoint of a chain of changes and it becomes downright inconvenient when there are multiple endpoints in the chain of changes in your source repository.
