  • Google releases Android 12 source code (coming soon to Pixel phones) - Liliputing

    After months of developers previews and beta tests, Google Android 12 is ready to go… sort of. Google is now pushing the source code for Android 12 to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), which means we’ll likely start to see phone makers and custom ROM builders update to Android 12 soon.

    But if you have a Google Pixel smartphone you’ll still have to wait a little while for an Android 12 over-the-air-update to arrive. Google says it’ll start rolling out for Pixel devices “in the next few weeks.”

Android 12 source code has been published in AOSP

  • Android 12 source code has been published in AOSP

    Google has announced the release of the source code Android 12 under the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). This means that the company has kicked off the new version of the popular mobile operating system, which in the coming months should begin to reach some device models through OTA updates.

    In order to give Android 12 an early start in real environments, the first devices to receive it will be Google’s Pixel smartphones. Users will be able to install the system by OTA update or by downloading the corresponding image to the device and entering it manually without having to unlock the boot loader or have to delete the data. According to the vice president of engineering of Google, Dave Burke, at the end of the year it will begin to reach the terminals of partners such as Samsung, OnePlus, Oppo, Realme, Tecno, Vivo and Xiaomi.

    In terms of data and features related to the system, Android 12 has had the contribution of 225,000 users for testing the beta versions. On the other hand, and in the words of Dave Burke, it promises to offer “the biggest design change in the history of Android” thanks to the implementation of the new design language: Material You .

  • 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.
