Using containers in my eyes reaches its full potential only when combined with an orchestrator – the usual choice should be Kubernetes. But if you build your own Dockerfiles you want to have a development environment where you can test the images on that orchestrator. This environment should be set up easily and responding fast.

This ought to be some kind of tutorial on how to write your own syntax highlighting rules for vim and how to activate them. Actually, the sites I found on the web, were either too superficial or much too complicated – like the vim documentation itself. I used them all to learn the art of […]

Last friday, I received a long expected package. The unpacking revealed this: [Show as slideshow] If you want to know more about the contents, keep reading.

Yesterday, I published an article about majordomo and my conclusion of nut using it, since the version my webhoster provides does not support archives and digest functionality.
