  • Embedded Linux project: Yocto or Ubuntu Core? [Part I] | Ubuntu

    Welcome to this mini blog series on Yocto vs Ubuntu Core for your embedded Linux project.

    Throughout this series, we will diligently assess the key considerations when choosing the OS of an embedded Linux system. We will also analyse the pros and cons of the most widely-adopted Linux-based distributions for embedded devices. Finally, we will offer a critical stance on how developers can focus on their value-add software and get to market fast.

    Here you are in Part I, right at the journey beginning. We will start with the basics and offer a quick intro to Yocto. We will mention some foundational considerations for adopting Yocto for your embedded Linux project and quickly skim through its inner constituents: recipes, layers, and BSPs.

    If you are already familiar with Yocto and do not wish to refresh your memory, jump to Part II. In the second blog post of this four-part series, we will review Ubuntu Core for your embedded Linux project. We will discuss what’s behind Ubuntu for embedded devices, the role played by snaps, and introduce the App Store.

  • Embedded Linux project: Yocto or Ubuntu Core? [Part II]

    Welcome to Part II of this mini blog series on Yocto vs Ubuntu Core for your embedded Linux project. In Part I, we set the stage for the remainder of the series and gave an overview of the pros and cons of using Yocto, alongside the advantages of its recipes, layers, and BSPs.

    Users, developers, and manufacturers alike embrace Ubuntu as the easy-to-use, feature-rich de-facto Linux standard. Recognizing the advent of the IoT, devices and large container deployments, Canonical has now created an open-source, purpose-built distribution for this new world: Ubuntu Core. In this chapter of the series, we will focus on why Ubuntu Core is the new standard for embedded Linux.

  • Embedded Linux project: Yocto or Ubuntu Core? [Part III]

    Welcome to the third chapter of this four-part series on Yocto vs Ubuntu Core.

    We have already gone a long way on the journey to choosing the right OS for your embedded Linux project. Part I covered the main characteristics of Yocto, and Part II assessed the advantages brought about by Ubuntu Core. If you missed the first two chapters, don’t worry: we will recap the major learnings below, before delving into the commercial vs roll-your-own embedded Linux distro debate. Alternatively, head over to Part I and Part II now for a more extensive treatment of the pros and cons of using Yocto or Ubuntu Core for your embedded Linux project. If you are ready for it, jump ahead to Part IV for the ultimate, direct comparison between the two solutions.

    Let us jump straight in with a short review of Yocto and Ubuntu Core, followed by some major considerations behind buying vs building your own embedded Linux distro.

  • How to install go1.19beta on Ubuntu 22.04 – NextGenTips

    In this tutorial, we are going to explore how to install go on Ubuntu 22.04 Golang is an open-source programming language that is easy to learn and use. It is built-in concurrency and has a robust standard library. It is reliable, builds fast, and efficient software that scales fast. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel-type systems enable flexible and modular program constructions. Go compiles quickly to machine code and has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. In this guide, we are going to learn how to install golang 1.19beta on Ubuntu 22.04. Go 1.19beta1 is not yet released. There is so much work in progress with all the documentation.

  • 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.
