  • Utkarsh Gupta: FOSS Activites in August 2021

    Here’s my (twenty-third) monthly but brief update about the activities I’ve done in the F/L/OSS world.

  • Personal Management System: A personal CRM and daily routine for busy minds

    PMS is distributed and released under the MIT license which allows commercial use, modification, distribution, and private use. However, it comes without a warranty, liability and copyright notice are a must.

  • The Open Source ecosystem for Drones - itsfoss.net

    One of the global players is the Chinese company DJI. The 14-year-old company has dominated the drone category thanks to an aggressive pricing strategy for its hardware. But with the addition of DJI to the blacklist US Department of Commerce’s, the initial situation changes fundamentally: This step not only prevents DJI from continuing to source US components, but also means that any company that wants to do business with DJI (even if it is only the use of the DJI SDK), now has to check whether these activities comply with US regulations. This becomes a legal risk for the affected company, as does the use of Huawei hardware, the Chinese company that has been on the same list since 2019 and is next to no use in the US.

    An open source ecosystem is now in the process of establishing itself as the industry standard in the battle for market share. Since its inception in 2011, PX4 has become the most widely used open source flight control system for autonomous aircraft. While Auterion is the leading contributor, it is used by an external community of more than 600 contributors, including leading drone and aerospace companies, as well as companies all of whom are committed to software and hardware advancement. According to Auterion, the PX4 has two major advantages over the previous software controls for drones

  • 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.
