This New Linux OS Sure Looks Like It Was Designed By Apple

  • This New Linux OS Sure Looks Like It Was Designed By Apple

    Despite loving Linux, I’m not willing to use a Linux-powered mobile operating system unless it looks and feels fantastic. It’s why I’m not enamored with Ubuntu Touch. It’s why I’m less than enthusiastic about ARM-based variants of popular distros like Manjaro and KDE Neon, despite wishing them success. Call me silly, call me selfish, but they’re just not flashy enough.

    More importantly, there’s not a mobile Linux OS in existence that screams “hey, I’m tablet-first design!”

Linux copies the iPad to capture tablets and hybrids

  • Linux copies the iPad to capture tablets and hybrids

    It is not possible to see all the ginkgo that Apple has brought to the iPod in recent years. It is a Linux distribution with a very well defined purpose. It is not dedicated to PCs or other devices, but focuses on tablets and hybrids with similar properties.

    Developed and manufactured for touch screen devices, it has an optimal interface. The Chinese programmers who created it guarantee that it is Compatible with any x86 device, But multi-touch support provides a broader experience.

  • JingOS Alpha is Available to Download for Early Testing

    Don’t expect anything too polished at this stage. Devs say the JingOS 0.6 release is “not stable”, far from feature complete, and unsuited for use as a ‘daily driver’, i.e. consider it alpha quality software intended for use by early-adopters, willing testers, and canny developers only.

    But those excited by the emergence of this Ubuntu-based distro and it’s (rather swish) Qt/Plasma-based UX can now indulge in some hands-on experimentation.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
