Setting up for a lambda environment can take a few steps, I’ve throw together a quick start guide for my personal reference to get up and running
Over the past few years, I have worked on a few projects that require internationalization (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.
While playing with the raspberry pi camera I found it hard to know if the camera was working or trying to tweak settings. I was using raspivid -f to preview the video. This was limited with being open for 5 seconds ( can be adjusted using the -t flag and passing it seconds in milliseconds ). The solution was to open a streaming video from the raspberry pi and view it on my host ( mac ).
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
Connecting to Raspberry pi 2, 3 and zero to a RFID sensor, This summarizes my experiences using the tutorial found on Sunfounder.
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.
People often ask me what is possible with the power of the raspberry pi. I’m have a tendency to buy numerous microcontrollers / cheap standalone controllers, just to see how they work and if they could prove more useful to me than the raspberry pi. The release of the Pi Zero for $5 pretty much put the nail in the coffin when it comes to IoT ( Internet of Things ) work for prototyping.
The start of learning / starting something new usually has a rocky start. There is a lot to learn when creating an entertaining and informative product. After my first week of streaming I have documented and put together a list of things to work on. Some things I need to work on:
- Have a better idea of what to accomplish during the stream / be able to explain it
- Stop over engineering things ( Start Small then expand after a strong base project )
- Do research prior to prove proof of concepts
