It occurred to me several months ago that I could build a Docker image for Mobiliaire to make it easy to grab and evaluate or use. Problem was, I was very unfamiliar with Docker and struggled to grok how it works. Got frustrated and put it aside. I picked it back up today and got a dev environment running w00t! I still need to work on a prod or close-to-prod build, but hey, progress!
I added two new config sheets to my collection – one that does a majority of the work setting up a copy of my Inventory app, and one that, when done, will fully configure a dev environment for a php app I work on regularly. It’s so nice to be able to do the setup work once (while I’m authoring the config) and then once it’s done and tested I can use it repeatedly, as needed.
I’m abandoning WSL on my desktop machine. It and Multipass don’t play nicely with each other when run on the same system. So I spent about two days working out a single-file cloud-config YAML that I can feed to Multipass and have it build me a customized “daily use” VM to be the replacement for WSL. I’ve got it juuuust about worked out.
My Multipass application has “lost” all of my VMs (they’re all still there) and refuses to acknowledge them even though I told it where they are. Brat.
