A place for non-work-related flimflam, faffing, hodge-podge or jibber-jabber you’d prefer to keep out of more focused work-related channels.

What was that article featuring fancy bear goes Phishing, and asking if security is even possible?
Does anyone have a way to get the editor window at gist.github.com to be larger?
You can use chrome devtools overrides, but they require the devtools tab to be open.
Tampermonkey has it. https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/460849-gist-edit-resize
Gist enhancements with collapsible files and larger editor area

The new Terraform
check block was a bit confusing and the existing posts that were out there on the topic weren’t the best, so we wrote our own: https://masterpoint.io/updates/understanding-terraform-check/
@Matt Gowie you might want to share this in #terraform as well
Does anyone know what Jira Work Management is? It looks like it’s just basic jira features as far as I can tell…
In which context you are asking for? For which role and purpose? So that I can answer
No context. Just what is it? What’s the difference between Jira and Jira with Jira Work management. From the product pages the difference isn’t clear…. It looks just like what Jira has always been afaict
the main difference is that normal usage of Jira involves using its basic features to create, track, and manage tasks, while Jira workflow management involves customizing and automating the process that tasks follow within your organization. It adds an extra layer of organization and efficiency to your team’s work.

My unsolicited hot take is that Hashicorp is showing its age, and has been in the final horizon of growth (don’t worry too much about this maturity model vs other maturity models, it’s an idea that’s echoed in all kinds of frameworks, the essence of which is that the most mature phase of growth focuses on efficient extraction of profit as opposed to innovation and market fit) for some time. This latest action is merely a symptom of this phase. To me, I am therefore pessimistic about the future growth and development of Hashicorp products.
As I’ve noted in past office hours, I’ve been categorizing IaC tools by their state machine, and most have the same one: [build a manifest, display a plan, get approval, deploy ( with a 50% chance of failure upon integration), and merge]. Automation frameworks work around this fundamental order of operations. Terraform is like this, but so is Pulumi, CloudFormation, CDK, and others.
Only one stands out in my perspective: SystemInitiative. It is cofounded by Adam Jacobs (of Chef fame). It features resources which leverage relationships to pass attributes dynamically to downstream resources in a visual interface.
“Visual Interface?!” I thought as past traumas of clicking through no-code GUIs surfaced.
But, then I read that each resource is aware of its own deployment state across different environments (including native integration testing). The interface restricts collaboration to within the portal, because the application is managing the state of deployment in real time. SystemInitiative is the first and only option I know of that actually does something different with the state machine.
If they can manage to polish the product for enterprise use, it may represent the first in a new paradigm for infrastructure management.
SystemInitiative has the heart of the product I was thinking of when I exclaimed that Terraform, CloudFormation, CDK, Pulumi, were all the same thing. I’m keeping an eye on development there and eagerly anticipate a GA release.
SystemInitiative is also who I am rooting for! It’ll be a while until it’s production-ready tho
let us make some urgency for Hashicorp who made the wrong decision to update the license lol
I’ll look into their repos if having any spare time
Hmmm…. Credentials are PII. Data regionality is a thing. How does accounts.google.com resolve submitted credentials if user account data is stored in different regions?
A very good repo to visualise your cloud infra made by terraform https://github.com/patrickchugh/terravision
Terravision visualises Terraform code as live Professional Cloud Architecture Diagrams by analysing the code dynamically. Supports AWS, Google and Azure.
Hi forks! https://medium.com/@xpf6677/store-share-and-pull-your-kubernetes-configuration-package-on-the-github-container-registry-7b6ba32d96ff Let me introduce you to the KPM tool, which allows you to share KCL and Kubernetes Configuration code on the Github Container Registry, which is regarded as a OCI registry. In addition, KCL is a configuration language mainly targeting Kubernetes scenarios, and its documentation is here. https://kcl-lang.io/ Welcome to provide feedback
kpm is a tool for managing kcl packages. This article will guide you on how to use kpm to push your kcl package to an OCI Registry for…
KCL is an open-source constraint-based record & functional language mainly used in configuration and policy scenarios.
On a scale of 1-10, how hard is it on average to add a region-lang slug (eg: /us-en/) to a url schema? I’ve seen it done in a day in the past, but wonder what others have experienced.
I think it really is up to the code base. If using a mainstream framework, paths should already be largely abstracted.
Note, it could have SEO implications
That’s the key I think. Framework or no. It makes sense
Ah, it drives me nuts when you can’t get a sitemap right bc regionality is implemented as query string or headers.
The complexity comes in if that’s not tenable, then the conversation shifts to how to jimmy rig it with something like Nginx as a reverse proxy doing real-time content manipulation.
Awful sadness then. Frameworks ftw. Again. :)
https://medium.com/@xpf6677/5-minute-gameplay-with-helmfile-kcl-plugin-for-easy-management-of-kubernetes-helm-charts-dab750c5c687 I just published a blog on medium about Helmfile KCL PLugin. Welcome to read and provide feedback
do you happen to know if it’s possible to use in ArgoCD?
