Can you provide good resource for microservices with yii2?
Are those related? Cause a client asked about this combination and as far as I could find it seems that they aren't.8
Most the devs are yelling Linux is best and blah. But since I installed eOS on my new ideapad my productivity is zero.
I'm just solving problems with the OS or other software. It seems some of the drivers are missing, because sometimes this fucking piece of shit just don't boots or just hangs. Installing node and npm was definitely one of the worst experiences because I messed up sudo privileges... I had to change my workflow because node-sass wasn't able to compile because of this.
And still I kind of feel more comfortable with eOS. 😥14
Is VSCode some kind of sorcery?
I run into issues with node version compatibility with node-sass when tried "npm i" in the eOS console. Then I don't know why I tried the same command in the integrated terminal and had no problems.
Why the fuck good git pushed my vendor folder, even though I have it in .gitignore?
That shit costed a huge amount of time... 😥13
I've got myself a new notebook. Lenovo ideapad 330.
Had troubles with the installation, but I will be using elementary os in a few minutes! I'm excited!
Have you ever worked with leaflet.js to display openstreetmap? I do and its great.
But now I want to display multiple markers on a map and the map somehow only renders random three markers. Wtf?
I'm lost. All results on google show me how to do it right, but it just doesn't work.15
I've worked on dozens of projects now and I have tried using several CSS frameworks. Every time I experienced using a framework much more of a hustle than using custom CSS for the design. If your design gets a little bit more complex or unusual you will spent hours on fixes.
For me the times of frameworks in CSS have passed.
Tough I kinda like Vuetify, but then I haven't used it on big projects yet.8
There was this motherfucker searching a dev to build a vue component on freelancer.
I applied. 🙄
Then he started to ask me out about Upwork. How he wants to use my account through TeamViewer. And how he will pay me for this monthly.
Why am I magnetic to idiots and scammers? Can some one please Avada Kedavra all idiots? I will pay you monthly. I swear.3
I've implemented an in memory caching system for database queries with Redis in one of the blogs I manage.
Will it work well? Or do you think it will produce issues? I have no experience with Redis yet.14
I need a life advise - pls share your wisdom!
I have my first client located in the US. He wants to pay with a cashier's check and I have no idea how that works. How do you European or even german freelancer are getting paid by american clients?10
"Have you seen this new movie? It's really good, it's British English though, but it's subbed."
I laughed my ass off. 😂
Why is Docker + SSL certificates so confusing? Or do I just have bad resources?
I just want to know how to compose an Docker, Nginx setup with encryption.11
On my last deployment for the musician client I encountered a really nasty bug.
I configured all the settings in my Nginx. Theoretically everything should work, but it did not. Somehow I always ended up landing on my default Nginx page.
After hours of trying to find the typo, turning it off and on again and praying to all gods I ever heard of, I finally analysed my default Nginx config file. Somehow the server config I posted on the clients conf-file got posted beneath the default configs. WTF?
After deleting those everything worked. 🙄4
My whole workflow for HTML is frustrating. I rather write pug, because it has mixins, includes and isn't that fucking repetitive. But to write pug within Laravel blade views, I have to preprocess it too blade. Then sometimes the syntax gets crazy because of escaping blade loops like an insane guy ('| @foreach($foo as $bar)'), but you get used to it after time.3
After I did some work on this nightmare codebase, the client kept switching goals. He Changed the task a few times, so I always told him that he will have to pay for all changes.
After a time he requested another change, so I stated that he has to pay the first invoice I sent him first. He started bitching around, that I didn't complete the work yet and so on. I saw where this was going. He didn't wanted to pay me, so I cancelled the work for this bitch.
Read my revenge in #114
Of course they don't use git. And also they don't use SSH all changes get committed by FTP.
When I started he gave me root access and I had to clone the whole fucking thing, wich was about 2gb, via FTP.
He stumbled when I told him, that I will test all changes first on my local machine. They were used to work in production.
Instead of writing migrations the former dev implemented a migrate route. Wich triggered a method on the "mainController" to run several SQL statement and migrate.
The former dev tried to implement redirects. He created dozens of routes wich lead to a 'redirectXY' method within the 'mainController'. There he returned a redirect Instance.
My client tells me there's a new bug with to-www-redirects. He yells they don't work properly anymore and tries to blame me. But fact is I know, they are well configured in the Nginx conf and therefore work like a charm.
I told him I fixed it and charged an hour. Motherfucker.
Of course the previous dumbass dev could not use the findOrFail() method, because he didn't used any models.
But he just implemented his custom get404() method.
Only 7 of the ~200 Routes are named. The former dev just created URLs within the views with the url() method.
There are just GET & POST request. Even though stuff is getting edited or deleted.
