Tip of the day: validating a Jenkinsfile from the CLI with HTTPie

Submitted by Frederic Marand on

The Jenkins butler with a keyboard, variations by fgm@osinetfr and Dall-E 2An easily missed feature in Jenkins is the bundled linter for Jenkinsfiles.

While there are many examples about how to use it with cURL, I could not find any using HTTPie, which I find much more convenient in general than cURL. So, after some fumbling due to the little documented expectations of the validator, here is the solution showing how to validate a Jenkinsfile from the CLI:

GoLand tip of the day: when Make run configurations don't find go Frederic Marand

The problem

In a GoLand 2018.3 EAP run configuration, a Makefile run configuration finds the go binary on macOS, but not on Ubuntu, causing make targets like this one to fail:
client/test.wasm: client/main.go
# Building WASM
GOARCH=wasm GOOS=js go build -o client/test.wasm client/main.go

/usr/bin/make -f (some edited path)/Makefile client/test.wasm
/bin/sh: 1: go: not found
make: *** [client/test.wasm] Error 127

Simple enough to fix...

Lighthouse 3.0 is out: Drupal 8.5 has killer performance Frederic Marand

MySQL tip of the day: getting rid of the results formatting on the CLI Frederic Marand

The problem

I'm going to Drupal Europe and so should you

Submitted by Frederic Marand on

So DrupalCon Europe is out for 2018. But that does not mean a EU-level event does not exist, to bind the community beyond the specialization of DevDays, FrontEnd United, CxO, GovDays, and all the DrupalCamps. Drupal Europe is that event, and to support the community who wants to prove a large Drupal conference can reasonably happen after all the trouble the Drupal Association had with it, the best way it to register for the conference.

ASAP.

So join me there :-) Drupal Europe early supporter badge

Tip of the day: Unfuddle DMP format and lesser-known git commands Frederic Marand

While exporting a project from Unfuddle in order to import its issues to Jira, I took a look at the other files beyond backup.xml and the media/ directory. Turns out that when Unfuddle provides you with a project backup, it includes the repositories in an undocumented (on their site, at least) format, under the dmp file extension. Let's find out how to actually use these.

Git tip of the day : show the hottest files in a repo

Submitted by Frederic Marand on

When auditing or reviewing an unknown code base, I often have to decide which files to examine in priority. Beyond the usual heuristics for Drupal projects (hint: look at templates in D7), how can one find the parts most likely to contain problems ? This simple command set can help pinpoint troublemaking files quickly.
