  • GSoC 2022 project announced: CMYK features

    The cat is out of the bag: Nikc, a Google Summer of Code student, is working this year on getting CMYK features into GIMP. Let’s talk about this in a little more detail.

    For the record, we only requested this unique project slot to Google. Nikc discussed beforehand with us to understand the needs, the project current state as well as the wanted direction. They also contributed patches before GSoC selection so we knew how they interact during code review. If anyone is interested in GSoC in future years, please consider communicating with us like this, not just dropping a proposal without contacting us on our mailing lists or IRC.

  • Utkarsh Gandhi: Inrotductory Post

    I'm Utkarsh Gandhi, a 20-year-old, second-year B.Tech student. I have been coding for a few years now but had never contributed to an open-source project before. My seniors advised me to participate in GSoC as it is the best way to start contributing to open source projects.

    I looked at a lot of organisations, but none of them seemed right. Then finally, GNOME caught my eye. I had been using the GNOME desktop environment and its applications for a year, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity for me to give back to this organisation. I knew this would be the right fit for me.

    I started contributing to GNOME (more specifically Nautilus) around mid-February this year. I chose Nautilus as it is one of those applications which I use on a daily basis, and it just seemed logical to try and contribute to the app which is really important to me.

  • 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.
