Setting up a WordPress can be tedious, let’s simplify that!
Quick guide to enabling VNC allows for remote debugging / a way of working on a raspberry pi without actually sitting next to it. After having connected to a wifi network we can begin enabling the VNC connections.
Often when moving a raspberry pi project around it’s IP changes. whether it is on your home network or a new one, it becomes a task to figure out it’s IP.
Over the past few years, I have worked on a few projects that require internalization (i18n) and localization (l10n) configuration files. The best way I have found is to use the domain key approach. This allows for fine-tuned control in your translations to each “page” or domain.
Angular’s built-in routing works wonders. you can do so by either registering the route with the hash in the URL or you can states ( html5Mode set to true ). This will leverage html5’s push state to route URLs. Unfortunately, this will cause some issues when attempting to refresh the browser.
Mounting the raspberry pi home directory to avoid the push / pull game with git can become painful. It’s relatively straight forward to get shared folders using the appletalk protocol
When working on projects for the raspberry pi, it’s sometimes needed to have the screen be rotated, we need to go and modify the boot config of the raspberry pi.
A while ago I picked up a Davinci XYZ 1.0A 3D printer. I mostly bought this for three reasons:
- Ease of use as I was just getting into 3d printing and wanted something that would be a good step to start printing what I wanted. This is done w/ filament cartridges that know what type of material it is and configures the printer accordingly.
- 7.8″ cubed print bed, this was the larger printer volume on the market for the price.
After a few mediocre prints, I found out what some of the complaints were about. First is the EPROM chip in the filament cartridges. This seems like a bonus at first, but after you realize the cost per kg of the filament, you realize the price is obnoxious. You are forced into using their proprietary filament which is limited and expensive. There are ways around this like an EPROM resetter using an arduino.
Lately I have been diving more into C by trying to program a PIC16F882 chip ( datasheet ) with a ICSP programmer.
Starting new projects can be difficult, especially when the need arises to develop / debug. It is key to have a development environment that closely matches the same hardware / software production environment it will be run on in production.
