Docker is a set of platform-as-a-service (PaaS) products that use OS-level virtualization to deliver software in packages called containers. Containers are isolated from one another and bundle their own software, libraries and configuration files; they can communicate with each other through well-defined channels. All containers are run by a single operating-system kernel and are thus more lightweight than virtual machines.
Visual Studio Code + Docker + Python using WSL in Windows on Boot Camp
I imagine your first thought is: why? Well, at Wehkamp we do a lot of cross platform development, but sometimes we end up with shell scripts that do stuff with Docker and Python. Usually that’s not a problem for Mac, but for Windows it’s a different thing. I have a MacBook Pro, but I’m a .NET developer, that’s why I prefer Windows, so I run Bootcamp. This article will show how to do Python development in the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) using Visual Studio Code and Docker.
Docker on Synology: from git to running container; the easy way
My Synology disk crashed and so did my Docker set up. Basically, the CI/CD pipeline for my programs no longer existed. The wonderful thing of an awful crash like this, is that I could rethink my setup. The result is what I would call “a poor man’s CI/CD”. It’s just Git, Docker, Docker Compose and Cron. It is easy to set up and it might be all you need.
Setup Jenkins (Blue Ocean) using Docker on Synology NAS
Using Docker on a Synology NAS has become really easy. It’s a bit harder to install Jenkins in a container and let it use the Docker installation it’s part of. But we are living in exciting times: bringing a fully functioning CI/CD-pipeline to your home automation has never been easier!
CI/CD for .Net Core app deployment to Raspberry Pi using Bitbucket
.Net now runs on your Raspberry Pi (awesome!). Tired of xcopying the result to your pi? In this article I’ll explore how to build a CI/CD Bitbucket pipeline that will build and deploy the app to your Raspberry Pi.
Taming Unit Test logging in Docker pipeline for .NET
The main problem of a CI/CD pipeline – in my opinion – is logging. When it logs too little you don’t know what’s going on, when it logs to much you can’t see the trees to the forest. Having too much logging can seriously impact the effectiveness of your CI/CD pipeline. This script will improve Xunit unit test output.
