We try to do more "showing" than "telling" in this organization, but this week I felt the urge to tweet about how great our site is and it was super well received!

It brought it a bunch of new, curious folks to the platformβ€”which is great. πŸ˜„

This week, I...realized my flight was going to get snowed out so I got on an earlier flight to have a stress-free vacation!!

And even though I had nothing to do with this, @sarthology 's post felt like a win to me:

This week, I crossed a bunch of items off my to-do list, including several that I had been putting off because I knew that they'd be especially tedious and frustrating. I've also been making a lot of progress in writing (non-technical) documentation for some of our internal processes. It feels really good to get more of this knowledge recorded.

I know that had to be tough. Congrats, and good luck (and I mean that in a good way). Ending something stinks, but that's behind you so now you get to start something new...and that's almost always exciting!

This week, I... brought attention to the linting issues in the DEV project and helped open a discussion.

Could view linting be suppressing contributions? #1828

I have the feeling that view linting could be presenting a pretty strong burden to contributions. You could make a small contribution and get hung up with a huge linting fix chore as it currently stands.

I just feel like as an outsider without context it could add a bit too much burden at the time being. Thoughts on taking it away as a blocker to pushing and leave it as something folks can voluntarily make progress on until the app is at a closer place to being fully linted on the view with our preferred styles?

This week, I... finally managed to do my first public pull request for the year 2019...

[WIP] Feature : docker-run.sh script + docker container build #1844

What type of PR is this? (check all applicable)

  • [ ] Refactor
  • [x] Feature
  • [ ] Bug Fix
  • [ ] Documentation Update

Description

A single bash script that helps quickly setup either a DEV or DEMO environment

bash-3.2$ ./docker-run.sh 
#---
#
# This script will perform the following steps ... 
#
# 1) Stop and remove any docker container with the name 'dev-to-postgres' and 'dev-to'
# 2) Reset any storage directories if RUN_MODE starts with 'RESET-'
# 3) Build the dev.to docker image, with the name of 'dev-to:dev' or 'dev-to:demo'
# 4) Deploy the postgres container, mounting '_docker-storage/postgres' with the name 'dev-to-postgres'
# 5) Deploy the dev-to container, with the name of 'dev-to-app', and sets up its port to 3000
#
# To run this script properly, execute with the following (inside the dev.to repository folder)...
# './docker-run.sh [RUN_MODE] [Additional docker envrionment arguments]'
#
# Alternatively to run this script in 'interactive mode' simply run
# './docker-run.sh INTERACTIVE-DEMO'
#
#---
#---
#
# RUN_MODE can either be the following
#
# - 'DEV'  : Start up the container into bash, with a quick start guide
# - 'DEMO' : Start up the container, and run dev.to (requries ALGOLIA environment variables)
# - 'RESET-DEV'   : Resets postgresql and upload data directory for a clean deployment, before running as DEV mode
# - 'RESET-DEMO'  : Resets postgresql and upload data directory for a clean deployment, before running as DEMO mode
# - 'INTERACTIVE-DEMO' : Runs this script in 'interactive' mode to setup the 'DEMO'
#
# So for example to run a development container in bash its simply
# './docker-run.sh DEV'
#
# To run a simple demo, with some dummy data (replace <?> with the actual keys)
# './docker-run.sh DEMO -e ALGOLIASEARCH_APPLICATION_ID=<?> -e ALGOLIASEARCH_SEARCH_ONLY_KEY=<?> -e ALGOLIASEARCH_API_KEY=<?>'
#
# Finally to run a working demo, you will need to provide either...
# './docker-run.sh .... -e GITHUB_KEY=<?> -e GITHUB_SECRET=<?> -e GITHUB_TOKEN=<?>
#
# And / Or ...
# './docker-run.sh .... -e TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN=<?> -e TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN_SECRET=<?> -e TWITTER_KEY=<?> -e TWITTER_SECRET=<?>
#
# Note that all of this can also be configured via ENVIRONMENT variables prior to running the script
#
#---

And does the deployment using docker. Includes option to do a reset prior to deployment.

Optional contextual information provided here : dev.to/uilicious/adopt-your-own-de...

Added to documentation?

This week, I finally took the time to add optional chaining into a JS project (something I'd been saying I was going to do for ages but never found the time). Out with the:

something && something.somethingElse && something.somethingElse.someOtherThing

and in with the

something?.somethingElse?.someOtherThing
