As a hip, cutting edge developer, you’re using Hugo to generate your blog or website. Wordpress… pssh, you’re way too cool for that. Being cool has its complications though. How and where should you deploy your Hugo app. Should you push it locally using rsync or some other fancy means? Whatever. This simple post is going to show you how to deploy your Hugo app using Gitlab’s Continous Integration feature.
What is Gitlab An alternative to Github with many more features and an increasly better offering Free Private Git Repositories On of Github’s price points is to offer you a limited number of private repositories. You want more, pay more. Then Bitbucket came along and offered free private repositories, but limited the number of people you could share those repositories, it made for some weird accounting at the end of the day.
In recent months I’ve been working to add Apple Pay for Web to a major clothing retailer. One of the requirements for Apple Pay for Web is that the connection must be over HTTPS. Most of the time when I’m developing locally, I do not use HTTPS. Local, meaning the application code is running on my laptop. In most cases, HTTPS is just run in staging and production environments and not handled directly by your app code.
This is the best way I’ve found to set up for a container to contact the host machine. sudo ifconfig lo0 alias 172.16.123.1 Now you can use the IP 172.16.123.1 to contact your local host machine. Might want to store that in an environment variable. Note: I had written a much longer, more indepth post, but a few unfortunate key strokes in Vim obliterated much of the post…
If you’ve found this article, then you’ve banged your head against the problem of being on a restrictive VPN and using Docker at the same time. The culprit is usually Cisco AnyConnect or Junos Pulse. The Problem You use Docker for development. For various reasons you need to connect to a VPN, but as soon as you do, Docker stops working. There are many solutions out there, some work, others do not.

Maybe you work on different git projects, on business, then at home for personal projects. In the past, as a convenience, I set my
~/.gitconfig to include my name and email like the following.
This is the holy grail, the culmination of knowing there is something out there better, stronger, faster. In this blog post, I’ll outline how to set up Amazon S3, Cloudfront, and Route53 to serve your static React, Angular, or any site over HTTPS. Get ready, it’s about to get real. What am I even talking about? The new en vogue way to build sites is to use React or Angular on the front end.
The Backstory You may find yourself needing to redirect all traffic from your root domain example.com, otherwise known as the apex, to your real hostname www.example.com. Maybe you didn’t know this, but you cannot use a CNAME on your apex domain. This will bite you in the butt when you try to use your root domain example.com with Heroku’s SSL (HTTPS) service. Heroku will give you a hostname and tell you to create a CNAME to that hostname.
