Managing your terraform across multiple environments

You’re managing your cloud infrastructure using Terraform. You’ve got your first environment up and running and you’re already reaping the benefits of a codified infrastructure. Changes are easy. But, now you need to set up a second environment (staging, prod, whatever) and you’re finding that managing this is not straight forward. There’s a bunch of arguments to remember every time you switch between environments, and your switching a lot because you want to keep them in sync. Because this is hard you tend to use auto-complete, but then sometimes you forget to change something and accidentally apply prods config to staging. Well, as in many occasions, a Makefile can probably help you there.

The easy way to view web certificate info (probably)

This is a quick little post about how I realised that there’s a nice and easy way to view detailed information about a web certificate available to most sensible people: Firefox TL;DR: code This is a built-in feature of firefox: click on the little padlock icon in the address bar when visiting any website using TLS, select the view cert info and a new tab will open displaying info about the cert.

Hugo On Then, I'll find a better Static Site Generator

I recently changed this site generation from using Hexo (a JavaScript static site generator), to Hugo (a Golang-based one) and it made me happy for quite a few reasons. Don’t get me wrong, Hugo ain’t perfect, but having a little less JavaScript in my life has made me a happy chappy.

Should I go static? An argument for switching to a static site generator.

I’m planning to write a little guide on how you can host a static site effectively, but it got me thinking that first I might wanna write about WHY you’d want to use a static site in the first place. Here goes!
