May/27/2018 3 min read by Marco Monteiro

A few weeks ago I reported that I made the change from Mac to Linux. Since then I tested loads of stuff in Linux to the point where I choose my stuff. Later Ubuntu 18.04 came out and I decided to do a clean install with just the software I wanted.

Here's the result.

Yeah! I'm not using mac anymore

Apr/04/2018 2 min read by Marco Monteiro

Let's be clear, I'm still using OSX at work, mostly because there's no need to change there these days. The computer is already there, so why change?

For the past 8 or 9 years I've been using as my main computer a macbookpro. First gen I bought was awesome, lasted for years. Upgraded it with some more RAM, and then I even removed the DVD player (remember those?) and shoved a SSD and the computer was great.

Are you still using NFS to sync your file over to your virtual box?

Jan/19/2017 1 min read by Marco Monteiro

For quite a while I must admit I been using this method to sync my files. This has been problematic, files not really syncing in real time can be a pain in the ass, sepecially when you're making changes on front-end and want to see those changes on the fly.

So, do yourself a favor and change to rsync. To do so, you just need to edit your vagrant file for something like this:

config.vm.synced_folder "./", "/vagrant", type: "rsync",
    rsync__exclude: ".git/"

This way you're using rsync and you're excluding your git folder. You can add other folder there. Now, when you start your vagrant box you have to do this:

$ vagrant up
$ vagrant rsync-auto

And your files will be synced automatically.

CodeIgniter 4 has its own Github repository. It deviates enough from CodeIgniter 3 that the British Columbia Institute of Technology wanted to keep them separate. The CodeIgniter 4 roadmap is explained in the forum, and work to be done is detailed in the repository issues.
