Lua Software Code: A HOWTO blog for programmer

Desmond Lua updated 2020-04-03T04:57:49.848671
I have multiple text files with short technical notes on how to do various things (things I might easily forget). Perhaps creating a blog to keep those note shall be more organized with better documentation; an online repository also means less likely to loose those notes again.

I might be too busy or lazy to create a blog of technical tutorials (it does slow down my programming), but those notes are meant for myself (I treat them as documentation), then I am slightly more motivated to do it.

One of the reason many online tutorial sucks is because the author didn't really use the tech in production, thus I shall only document about tech I used and the problems I faced.

Besides, since I did google for a lot of answer online on a daily basis, perhaps it's time to contribute back into the information pool.

PS: Thanks Boo for giving me the idea, else I will probably would not do this.

Product404: Archive dead products

Desmond Lua updated 2019-12-03T16:01:48.547687
I build quite a few products over the years, which many of them failed and fall into oblivians. I wanted to create a page to archive these projects:

- to remember/show what I build in the past
- to share a postmoterm of why it fail

I go this idea when I was refreshing my CV and building a personal profile/portfolio page, which I realized I have forgotten about some projects or I no longer have any material to prove their existence (web page no longer online, no screen capture).

A small scale organic farm is going to go public soon. They want an app to sell their produce.

I've been making sluggish progress, but It Ends Tonight. Its a weekend, and the app finishes itself today

PixPin: Photo at places

Desmond Lua updated 2019-05-14T14:42:00.871184
A very simple app to share photos on location, and discover interesting places and things near you (or far away).
  • Desmond Lua posted 2019-05-14T14:41:40.779604
    Sadly, going to abandoned this project.
    No as simple as I thought it would be, and not as fun to use.
    Unless I focus on a specific niche, the app basically compete with Google Photos (photos around places) or Instagram.

Learning to deploy python in a production environment

Mr Alexander Dowsett updated 2019-04-11T09:46:56.649514
This is a bit of a baptism by fire for me. I am doing a devops role for the first time and learning python whilst trying to get things set up to work in production.
I would love some hints and tips around this sort of thing. Any caveats I should know about? Rookie moves to avoid?
  • Mr Alexander Dowsett posted 2019-04-11T09:46:56.190858
    Wow a bit of a late update here.
    Turns out that python is really good fun to use. I have been playing with boto and python to manipulate s3 buckets. I have managed to get a lot of logging introduced to the scripts that need to be run.
    A long way to go, but getting there!

LuaPass: Secure Password Manager (Offline)

Desmond Lua updated 2020-02-04T02:47:07.821170
Have been storing my password in an "encrypted form" using online storage app, probably not the best long-term practice.

I am learning Kotlin and Android's latest Architecture Components, so I build this app to put my learning into actual practice.

Try LuaPass:

    Separated debug and release APKs so that I can use both side-by-side.
    Added some checks for reminder notifications.

- Setup xrdp
- Test quality/smoothness/readability through VPN (vscode/Python/lots of code or logs)
It's my first professional project, I'm working alone in this and although I have a lot implemented, there's a long roadmap ahead.

The stack so far is kinda like this
docker on Azure

I have a bunch of issues regarding efficiency, the app displays heavy renders of maps and visualizations
- I need help setting up CI/CD
- I need to update a lot of tests (I'm using pytest)
