A while back I wrote a small program named fast-live-reload. The point of it was to be able to do things whenever files change (be that refreshing browsers, or executing programs, such as Compass compilation).
Here is another sample on how I use it to try out python snippets really fast:
I basically split my current view in two (using byobu), and I edit in the left view with my trusty vim. Whenever I save, fast-live-reload picks it up and executes the script.
Instant feedback is instant ;-).
Since I already wrote an article on having Docker running with OverlayFS on Ubuntu 14.04, I won't go over all of it again. Here is a not so quick link on why it's cool to have it. Basically it's faster, harder, better, stronger, and scales better.
The only note is that since Ubuntu comes with v4 Kernels, there is no need to install any more packages except docker itself. The commands below must be ran as root.
The first step just installs docker, straight from docker.com.
Awesome. The problem now is that it runs with the aufs driver, so we need to stop docker.
The next step is to create a copy of the current configuration file from the system itself. We will override the configuration from the system by copying it as /etc/systemd/system/docker.service .
Now, we change the ExecStart line by appending the OverlayFS setting:
We now tell systemd that the configuration files have updated, and start docker again:
I am happy to announce the availability of Germanium 1.7.3.
Germanium is an Python API simplifying WebDriver access into very simple commands, making for very readable code:
It's best used for test automation, and is available straight from pip:
Germanium is tested against Python 2.7, Python 3.4 and Python 3.5, and Firefox, Chrome and IE on each release.
Also, it has pretty decent documentation.
Enjoy using it :), and if you have any issues with it, questions, feature requests, etc. please open up an issue on GitHub.
So if you follow up with Docker, you might have found out that the default storage that is provided with a normal Docker installation, is backed by the mighty aufs, created by the awesome Junjiro Okajima.
But out there there is another file system that is faster, with smaller footprint, etc. It's named OverlayFS, and was merged in the main kernel. Sounds to good to be true? Well read about it.
Now, this file system is available only from kernel version 3.18 and up. If you just installed Ubuntu 14.04, as of this date (10th of November, 2015), you should have 3.19 already installed. If you have an older existing Ubuntu 14.04 you need to update your kernel manually.
The one to rule them all. The browsers that is.
