  • How to Share Files on Linux Using Docker

    Prerequisites: A Linux computer(mine is Fedora 36) Docker(or podman) installed I know, there’s traditional ways to share files over network such as samba or the very current cloud way such as Google Drive. Or I can just use a USB key. But I managed to impress my child(who has to use Windows because of her […]

  • How to Build Multi-Arch Docker Images for MacBook M1

    At work, I currently use a MacBook Pro with an Intel chipset and some of my colleagues have upgraded to ones with M1 chipset which is of arm64 or aarch64 architecture.

  • Sideloader: An InitContainer to Sideload Stuff to Your Main Container

    After having played with ArgoCD for a few days, I came cross a blog post on how to get Grafana Tanka to work with ArgoCD. I like the idea to have Tanka as a plugin of ArgoCD, because: The main ArgoCD docker image doesn’t get bloated by all those binaries we want to use with […]

I followed a lot of instructions from this guide and finally made it work […]

  • Golang and Docker Multi-Stage Build MK2

This was before I learned some Golang but it’s easy to find out that the reason behind […]

  • Run Google Lighthouse in Docker Container

    Thanks to my Colleague Simon’s suggestion, I was introduced to Google Lighthouse, an opensource nodejs framework to use Google Chrome to audit a website’s performance. I like Lighthouse because: opensource good portability can run as CLI command or as a nodejs module Here’s a sample Dockerfile to have a container ready to run Lighthouse with […]
