Git is the most popular version control management tool/system today. Being distributed in nature, it facilitates lower risk of losing the whole repo out-of-the-blue. Because, user always has a copy of the repo. And there are a lot of vendors, offering hosted git server. And most the offerings are free with a reasonable limit.
instanceof etc. Other than these, everything else are objects. Even functions are objects, can be created by invoking by
Function constructor and
typeof on a function returns
In the previous post, I tried to write a step by step procedure to install and configure a GitLab Community Edition Server. Now, whenever we are running a server with some kind of hosting, whatever that may be, site-hosting, file-hosting, image-hosting or any other kind of hosting, proper backup is needed. Whatever we do to protect our server, for a cloud vps, it’s unlikely, but it may crash, or for some un-known reason, hosting account may be suspended, or host may go down for bankruptsy or server’s IP may get banned and the site can’t be accessed due to the firewall of the ISP. So, there are many reasons, that can result in no-access-to-the-server. And as a precaution, we need to take backup of the server regularly.
Please select Ubuntu 16.04, if it’s possible, as the server os, for both the servers. I’m using this. I’ll try to write the steps as os agnostic as possible and shall try to give proper links to install for other distributions.
We the creators must take good care of what we create. I, as a software developer write code. A journalist creates new articles. A researcher writes thesis. And so on. These, what we create, does not come without cost. Here the cost is, we have to conceive an idea. Do research on that idea. Collect documents, which have been created by others,on that idea or related to that idea. Read/analyse the collected resources. Think and think over the topic. For days. For months. For some, maybe some years. The creator of Pokemon Go, conceived the idea in 2010. And finally could publish in 2016. It takes time to create. Creation costs ourselves.
Today I’ve learned a new thing about Git. Actually some days back, we started re-implementation of one of our old web app. Previously, the app was written with Jquery. Some days back, we felt that, it would be better, if we could use ReactJs for the app, as it only shows updates, and each of the updates has it’s own life cycle. So, thought this would be a good use case to leverage the powerful features of ReactJs.
