Hey! you guys might have been thinking if I’ve stopped writing or working or have left this place. That’s not true and in fact I’ve been working more than before. But now you can find me at Ibexoft. It is not a new place for me neither I’ve moved there lately. In fact, I founded Ibexoft back in 2009 and now it will be my permanent place. Although, I’ve been also with another company for some time now but for my research and writings, you can find all at Ibexoft blog now.
See ya there!
This is a quick post about how to change look & feel of Google Chrome browser.
Just open a new tab and browse to:
There you will see different options.
Each option has different UI. Refresh option is for Material Design. So, if you are a fan of MD then you should try this one.
It is easy to mount a drive from Linux NFS share on Windows 10 machine. To do that make sure you have NFS Client (Services for NFS) is installed from Programs and Features. Following is the command to mount the NFS drive. Note that this command will run on cmd (Command Prompt) and not on PowerShell.
mount \<IP_ADDRESS>\<PATH_TO_DIR>\ drive:
For example, if the IP address of the NFS share is 10.235.0.10 and the directory you want to share is /var/www and you want to mount it to your Z drive, then you can run the following command.
mount \\10.235.0.10\var\www z:
But when you mount the drive you can browse the files using your Windows Explorer but you cannot create new files nor edit any files. To get write access on NFS share you have to make a small change in Windows registry before mounting the drive. Follow the steps defined here and then run the mount command and you will get the write access.
Recently I developed a theme for one of my client and I had to highlight the menu item of parent category in main menu when one of its associated single custom post is viewed. For that I had to add an action in my functions.php file for nav_menu_css_class. What is does is it returns the ‘active’ class which WordPress adds to the parent category menu item in the main menu. You can see the code at Gist here.
The good old days
When OpenShift was in its version 1 it was great from customer’s point of view with low budget. OpenShift v1 had free offers to deploy app and add a custom domain to it. There was no SSL support but it could be handled via CloudFlare solution, making overall solution a great one.
Then there comes OpenShift v2
RedHat then launched OpenShift v2 and added a restriction that gears will be shutdown after certain period of inactivity and also removed the support for custom domain.
That was the time that we had to move to some other cloud platform that could support our apps with low resources and without investing anything.
Since all good things in life are free.
Google Cloud to the rescue
So we came across Google Cloud platform offering and we had $300 credit in free trial for next 6 months. That was more than enough for us to start with. And in fact they have micro virtual machine instances that are free for life with 30gb storage. That is more than enough for small apps to run for free that are under experiments or don’t have any monetization plans.
So, we migrated several of our apps from OpenShift to Google Cloud and started leveraging free credits provided by Google.
Just this week we consumed all our credit and our trial expired. Our virtual machine instances were shutdown, but it didn’t take long that we enabled billing on our project and downgraded our instances to micro ones which is free. That gave us such a relief that our apps are still running although with low resources but it is fine as that are not our revenue generating apps and are just experiments.
OK, this post is a quick one. Let’s go.
In your Codenvy workspace goto Profile > Preferences > SSH > VCS and generate key and give it a name bitbucket.org. This will generate key for you. Copy this key by viewing it which we will use later on BitBucket.
Now go to BitBucket, select your repository, and then goto repository settings. Under Access Keys menu click Add Key button. Give a label as bitbucket.org and paste the key copied in previous step here and save.
Now on Codenvy project goto Git menu and add remote. You need to give SSH url to your BitBucket repo here. Add it and you can now pull the repo from BitBucket. Awesome!
When title is written it is usually displayed in single line on front-end until it is too long to display in one line. But if you want to write title in multiline and want to line break the title after a certain word how can you do that.
It is pretty simple. Since, we know the fact that when title is displayed it is a heading which is displayed using HTML tag off course. So, taking benefit of HTML we can just insert a HTML line break element <br/> just after the word in our title where we want the line break. Like this:
“This is my title <br/> with my own line break”
This will be displayed in two lines when you publish the post.
