Ten years ago this month, I was involved in a couple of huge changes for Zend Framework.

As a developer, I want to keep my code as DRY as is feasible for the given project. In a Hugo project, that’s where the Partial templates come in. Partials are smaller, context-aware components in your list and page templates that can be used economically to keep your templating DRY. Partials, however, have one serious limitation, they’re cached during the build of a given page (or scope). Once a partial has been created, no outside logic can adjust what the partial returns (for the page).

It’s really easy to to set up a website on AWS’s s3 service, but if you want to use a certificate (you do), it’s just a bit more work. With Ansible as my hammer, everything is a nail. Here’s a quick playbook I used to set up my site jxn.is to use cloudfront. This playbook creates the bucket, sets up an s3 website in the bucket, creates a cloudfront distribution with reasonable parameters, enables an existing Certificate Manager certificate on the site, and points DNS records at the cloudfront distribution.

I am a long-time gnome-shell user. I appreciate the simplicity and elegance it provides, as I prefer having a minimalist environment that still provides me easy access to the applications I use.
That said, just as with any desktop environment, I’ve still run into problems now and again. One that’s been plaguing me since at least the 18.04 release is with display of app indicators, specifically those using legacy system tray APIs.

I like Git over TFVC I’ve been on a new contract and we are using TFVC here. It’s a decent tool (used to be THE tool and was much better then SourceSafe before that) for version control (you’re doing version control, right??!!), but I’ve found myself saying “Git is so much better” out loud. I do really miss Git, but I need to be careful in presenting change (I don’t want to cause angst or feelings that things can’t be changed in the developers current company.
