    Lots of handy, funny, tips. (via someone, a while back)

  3. jlund/streisand: Streisand sets up a new server running L2TP/IPsec, OpenConnect, OpenSSH, OpenVPN, Shadowsocks, sslh, Stunnel, and a Tor bridge

    “It also generates custom configuration instructions for all of these services. At the end of the run you are given an HTML file with instructions that can be shared with friends, family members, and fellow activists.”

  4. Simple Django error logging configuration for Heroku | chrxr.com

    For future reference. Just because it seemed harder than necessary to work out how to get Django errors to display in Heroku’s console.

  5. Tufte CSS

    Some nice things in this example of CSS that styles things in a web parallel of Edward Tufte’s books. (via Russell Davies)

  6. AWS Git-backed Static Website · Alestic.com

    This is clever and bonkers. Why on earth would you run a static website like this unless you understood all of that? What do you do if something in that tangle stops working? Good luck!

  7. MWeb - Pro Markdown writing, note taking and static blog generator App - MWeb

    Sounds like a nice thing. Haven’t tried it. (via @gilest)

    Make a timeline thing, including maps, using Google Spreadsheets as the data source.

    Because this is usually where I end up when googling for this stuff.

  12. Employee #1: Amazon · The Macro

    On building the first Amazon website. (via Kottke)

  13. webpack-howto

    I suppose I should be at least familiar with this season’s front-end build tool.

  14. Sheetsee.js

    “A client-side library for connecting Google Spreadsheets to a website and visualizing the information in tables, maps and charts.” Obviously requires JavaScript, but looks like a nice way to create easily-editable data, charts, maps.

  15. Building with Make - Device Ready

    A nice introduction to using Make to build your JS files, run other tasks, etc. (via Tom Taylor)

  16. A basic Celery on Heroku guide

    This was also a nice write-up, with lots of handy tips, and barely out of date (a miracle, it seems).

  17. Python developer articles - Django celery setup

    Some bits of this were useful. And start-to-finish, not too wordy, examples like this are nice.

  18. Ryan A. Chapman — Vagrant: show port forwarding for all virtual machines

    Annoying that there’s no built-in way to get this info, for all running VMs, but this appears to work.

  19. A Sense of Where You Are — Elegant Tools — Medium

    Tom Broxton very good on gathering evidence about how long the designing and building of digital things actually take, so you can convince people your pessimistic-sounding estimates are accurate.

  20. Test A Reusable Django Application For Support Of Multiple Django Releases With Tox And Travisci | Joe Bergantine

    A clear description of how to do something that pretty much worked. Always a pleasure.

  21. How to use Land Registry data to explore land ownership near you | Anna’s blog

    Nice clear description of two ways to view basic Land Registry data about an area. A shame it even takes this much work. And the Ordnance Survey stuff is so locked down. And Land Registry data lookups cost £3.

  22. Boiling React Down to a Few Lines in jQuery - Hackflow

    An explanation of React that my fuzzy head can’t cope with right now. So, for later. (via @simonw)

  23. Lychee — Self-hosted photo-management done right

    PHP and MySQL thing for hosting your own photo library. Nice, possibly, although I find the demo frustratingly un-web-like. (via Infovore)

  24. Vega-Lite

    An abstraction of an abstraction of d3.js - make D3 charts using only a JSON file. (via FlowingData)

  25. Unable to set permissions within shared folder using Vagrant and VirtualBox - Ryan Sechrest

    Just because this is an example of how I’m spending my time. Every. Single. Step. of the past few weeks has been a stuttering ball-ache of googling for the least bad fix to solve yet another tedious problem.

  26. Multistage environments with Ansible – Ross Tuck

    I don’t need think I need this kind of setup right now, but in case I do in future… (via Infovore)

    Nice, clear description. Part two shows how to run multiple Django apps on the Nginx server.

    Nice clear summary. I’ve never used pyenv but looks like I should. (via Tom Taylor)

    Mainly for the tip about the “Vault Pseudo leaf encryption”.

  32. 6 practices for super smooth Ansible experience by Maxim Chernyak

    More Ansible tips. Like him I’ve been a bit frustrated that setting up a Vagrant box feels too different to setting up a real server, when you want them to be as similar as possible.

  33. AMBER

    WordPress plugin and Drupal module for saving copies of pages that your site links to, in case they disappear. (via @mathowie)

    I’m finding this (free, online) book very useful; exactly the kind of thing I struggle with how to do better.

  35. Feature.js

    Simple, lightweight alternative to Modernizr. (via Adactio)

  36. Ghostweather R&D Blog: Teaching a Semester of D3.js

    On teaching D3.js to journalism students with no JavaScript experience. I can barely imagine.

    “Provides a mechanism to mirror user’s Flickr photos into a Django project.”

  39. Flask Web Development - O’Reilly Media

    This book was really good for helping to structure a slightly larger Flask site than I was previously used to. I’m liking Flask, but it does require piecing together lots of knowledge to sew parts together.

  40. The best jQuery validation plugin to validate form fields, support Bootstrap, Foundation, Pure, SemanticUI, UIKit frameworks

    Despite the annoying information-light front page, this seems really good compared to other JS form validators I’ve used, and worth the money.

  41. How To Structure Large Flask Applications | DigitalOcean

    Always a pleasure to find useful tutorials that step though things clearly and Just Work.

  42. An Ansible Tutorial - Servers for Hackers

    More useful-looking future Ansible reading.
