NodeJS: Nodecopter Hacking

Controlling a Nodecopter remotely is cool, but having it control itself is even cooler! This presentation is about how to get Node.js running on the AR.Drone 2.0 embedded linux and fly it automatically.

Enabling Gzip with ngnix

Gzipping has its advantages, it compresses CSS, JS and HTML so that your response time increases. Lets say that you save 100KB per hit after Gzipping, now say you get 1000 unique hits per day, that will  be 100MB of data saved a day, pretty huge saving. I am using Ngnix now predominantly, so ngnix.conf […]

Building a full Linux Image For Intel Galileo

via Building a full Linux Image For Intel Galileo.

The project would require the use of OpenCV’s python module on an Intel Galileo. However, as I quickly found out full support for OpenCV was not available on Intel Galileo’s default Linux image. The solution was to build a clanton-full Linux image (the shipped version is a stripped down clanton-tiny) with OpenCV support included. However, I also quickly found out that creating the full build required a little more attention than pressing the “full build please” button. With that in mind I’ve put together a list of the steps I took to create the clanton-full image.

OpenKaOS: the Linux Kernel Attached Operating System

via opaquesystems/openkaos · GitHub.

OpenKaOS is an open source project to build lightweight Linux platforms that are embedded directly into the Linux kernel. The entire Linux platform sits inside a single bzImage and boots from initramfs.

OpenKaOS is a powerful Linux platform that can be dropped in as a replacement for any Linux distribution by simply adding the OpenKaOS Linux kernel and rebooting the system.

OpenKaOS is designed to provide maximum resources to the application supported by the operating system, it is optimized for deployment on Cloud Instances and Virtual Machines (KVM, VMware, Xen etc). OpenKaOS is being used as a base platform for Docker and other Linux container based platforms.

OpenKaOS is not based off any existing Linux distribution. OpenKaOS is built from vanilla open source project code, with specially selected patches when needed.

This open source project is not intended to provide a complete Linux distribution, it provides a developer toolkit from which you can build Linux platforms such as Linux distributions, software appliances, virtual appliances, containers, cloud instances, embedded platforms and so on.

This document provides some project related information such as handling security issues, release schedules, feature development, licensing and how to use this project.

Create Node.js latest verion RPM installer for CentOS 6&7

Since the node.js RPM installer in EPEL repository is old (v0.10.x), we can use “nodejs-rpm” to installable rpm package: Install necessary packages: sudo yum install -y gcc-c++ git make openssl-devel yum-utils rpmdevtools Use git to get latest source of nodejs-rpm in Github: git clone https://github.com/kazuhisya/nodejs-rpm.git Use yum-builddep to config necessary rpm packages: cd nodejs-rpm;sudo yum-builddep […]


Installing Node.js on Ubuntu 14.04

Introduction Node.js is a Javascript platform for server-side programming that allows users to build network and web applications quickly. By leveraging Javascript on both the front-end and the back-end, development can be more consistent and be designed within the same system. In this guide, we’ll show you how to install Node.js on an Ubuntu 14.04 […]
