Minimal blog about IT

Gitlab - templates

2021-06-15 5 min read 3sky
Welcome Working as a consultant is hard. You have so many tasks to do. The day is a bit too short, but the opportunities to learn are awesome. Today I have time to compile my notes about GitLab, mostly CI part. However, as a code repository for organizations, GitLab is my favorite solution. Fast, easy to use, permission matrix, and deployment keys management. All this stuff is awesome. It’s not a marketing post, but could be :) Continue reading

Jenkins and submodules

2021-04-02 2 min read 3sky
Welcome That will be a short post, rather full of my pain and frustration. Fortunately with happy-end and topic for a small article. Problem GitHub has some problems with service accounts for CI/CD usage. At least in Free Plan. You can’t share deployment keys like for example in GitLab. I can understand that in the context of security, but If you have 4,5, or 15 repositories, you need to manage the same numbers of ssh key pairs. Continue reading

Ansible with jump host

2021-03-23 4 min read 3sky
Welcome Long time no sea. It’s not a typo last time when I saw the see was in September in Greece. Almost the same thing I can say about Ansible. The last time when I used this tool for resolving real problems was more-less 2years ago. To be honest, during this period Ansible becomes (in my mind at least) just another boring and old-fashioned tool. Who is using Ansible if we have containers, Kubernetes Engines and Serverless?

The Nginx and how to configure it

2021-02-24 3 min read 3sky
Welcome That will be a short post. I need it, for my usage. All about Nginx and some application architecture. Why? During my 6 years of professional life, I haven’t met any Nginxa’s master. All my tech friends know some basics(as me) or have one best config which always works. Unfortunately, Nginx is hard. It’s just a tool, just a web server, but it’s complex, useful, and powerful. Let’s start. Continue reading

Welcome Some time ago I saw an interesting tool called edb-deployer. If You have no idea what EDB stands for it’s Enterprise version of Postgresql. I’m not a sell person, so for me, it’s just another company which making money around OSS - and that is good. However, I would like to tal… write about this small CLI tool. It could be very helpful for the migration to cloud PoC toolbox. Continue reading

2021's Plans, Jenkins plugin and Emacs

Welcome How are you? I hope 2021 starts at least such good as for me. Even without the New Year Party. Maybe you noticed that I deleted the cookbook section, and it’s all about splitting topics. It’s a tech blog, the rest of my hobbies need separated space. I hope you like this idea. After a few words let’s begin. 2021 Plans 10 months of writing, 12 posts I can say that I really like this. Continue reading

NodeJS app on LKE with Pulumi

2020-12-06 12 min read 3sky
Welcome I had an interesting idea, write a small app with something. Deploy this app on K8S on Linode (LKE), with the usage of Pulumi. I started with the Golang app as well as with pulumi-go, but I realized that I can turn it into a bit more fresh experience. I’ve never before use Node and TypeScript. Also building images for another toolset is always a challenge, especially if you in normal life use npm build, and push all artifacts on Nginx. Continue reading
