If you still trust these companies, you are a blithering idiot and you deserve to be laughed out of the fucking room.
Note: yesterday’s npm package was missing certain files from the lib/ folder due to the existence of a second package.json there (left over from the mono-repo refactor). That’s now fixed in version 1.0.1.
I’ve also fixed an issue with the example in the blog post.
All tested and working from a clean install now. Enjoy! :)
Ooh, and I just got a lovely birthday present from my dear friend Peter: early access to the first episode of his upcoming TV series, The Activist.
And. It’s. Really. Good! (Watched the first ten minutes or so and now saving it to watch with Laura tomorrow) :)
Today’s my birthday so I thought I’d give you all a little present:
@small-tech/https, a batteries-included plug-and-play replacement for the Node.js https module with automatic provisioning of both locally-trusted and globally-trusted certificates (via mkcert and Let’s Encrypt)
Happy birthday y’all! 🎉
One tool that really helped with the initial refactor to a mono-repo was the npm graph site https://npm.broofa.com
Bit the bullet and forked Greenlock (v2) again – this time into a mono-repo – after seeing the direction v3 is going in. Now I’m going through it line by line and removing all the marketing and telemetry and other miscellaneous bullshittery. Ultimate goal is to port it to ES6 and combine it with Nodecert to create an https module that is isomorphic with regular Node https module.
@aral I do not have one, but I have considered buying from friendlyarm - such as the zeropi or nanopi.
(I have not purchased because I have enough small arm boards that I am not using now.)
If China is an issue, Odroid boards are available via distributors outside Korea as well: https://www.hardkernel.com/distributors/
And while the XU4Q series is not exactly the same as the pi zero, it's still cheap - and at least where I am, buying from Europe (not "we don't want to be Europe anymore" either, done with their sh*t) makes more sense than from the US.
The Rock Pi S is supposedly coming to German distributors, but I don't see it yet in the distributor stores.
A quick follow-up: thanks to Andreas Monitzer’s suggestion on the birdsite, I just ordered one of these, which sounds perfect for what I have in mind: https://www.friendlyarm.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=69&product_id=266
I also just saw that a number of you recommended it & similar boards from the same company here. Thank you all so much for your feedback. Will check out some of the other alternatives you mentioned also but the zeropi sounds perfect for my needs :)
Site.js: now with auto updates in production
“One of the biggest security issues in tech is running outdated software. While I was running my servers on nginx, I couldn’t tell you when they were last upgraded as the process was so convoluted. With Site.js, running your own web server has to be deploy and forget. We cannot assume that folks are going to update their servers.”
@manuelcaeiro (Also, I don’t view what we’re doing through a capitalist lens. So if there are folks building similar tools for similar reasons, then more power to them. They are allies, not competition.)
