  • Anne van Kesteren: Leaving Mozilla

    I will be officially leaving Mozilla on the last day of June. My last working day will be June 16. Perhaps I should say I will be leaving the Mozilla Corporation — MoCo, as it’s known internally. After all, once you’re a Mozillian, you’re always a Mozillian. I was there for a significant part of my life — nine years, most of them great, some tough. I was empowered and supported by leadership to move between cities and across countries. Started by moving to London (first time I lived abroad) in February 2013, then Zürich in May 2014, Engelberg (my personal favorite) in May 2015, Zürich again in February 2017, and now here in Berlin since September 2018. In the same time period I moved in with my wonderful partner and we became the lucky parents of two amazing children. It isn’t always easy, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. They bring me joy every day.

    [...]

    So long, and thanks for all the browser engines. And remember, always ask: is this good for the web?

  • CSS layouts are so much better than they used to be - Oli Warner

    The Holy Grail was A List Apart’s famous article, a culmination of years of forebears delicately floating things around, abusing padding and negative margins to achieve something it took a <table> to do before. It’s hard to appreciate 16 years on, but that article was my bible for a while.

    As CSS standards improve and old versions of IE died off we saw the rise of CSS Frameworks, third party code, pre-hacked for edge-cases, just follow their markup, use their classes and everything would work. Most of the time. I’ve been through a few: Blueprint, 960, Bootstrap and most recently Tailwind.

    And I hate them all. That’s not fair. They’ve helped me, professionally, cope with an increasing number of browsers, and increasingly complex layouts (waves in responsive), and they’ve definitely got better —depending on your opinion on utility-first classes— but they all reset to something slightly different, and while the form classes are genuinely helpful, and they all served a purpose for layout, I’d rather have not depended on any of them. It’s those moments where you notice that somebody decided that display: table was the best option to meet IE10 support. And until PurgeCSS came along, they also meant a serious hit to the page weight.

  • 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.
