System Design Cheatsheet

Picking the right architecture = Picking the right battles + Managing trade-offs

Basic Steps

  1. Clarify and agree on the scope of the system
  • User cases (description of sequences of events that, taken together, lead to a system doing something useful)
    • Who is going to use it?
    • How are they going to use it?

OSX for Hackers: Yosemite/El Capitan Edition. This script tries not to be *too* opinionated and any major changes to your system require a prompt. You've been warned.
# SOME COMMANDS WILL NOT WORK ON macOS (Sierra or newer)
# For Sierra or newer, see
# Alot of these configs have been taken from the various places

Checkout github pull requests locally

Locate the section for your github remote in the .git/config file. It looks like this:

[remote "origin"]
	fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
	url =

Now add the line fetch = +refs/pull/*/head:refs/remotes/origin/pr/* to this section. Obviously, change the github url to match your project's URL. It ends up looking like this:

View rails_single_file.rb
require "bundler/inline"
rescue LoadError => e
$stderr.puts "Bundler version 1.10 or later is required. Please update your Bundler"
raise e

Phoenix Drain Stop
View drain_stop.ex
# ATTENTION: This is now supported in plug_cowboy as of 2.1.0:
defmodule DrainStop do
@moduledoc """
DrainStop Attempts to gracefully shutdown an endpoint when a normal shutdown
occurs. It first shuts down the acceptor, ensuring that no new requests can be
made. It then waits for all pending requests to complete. If the timeout
expires before this happens, it stops waiting, allowing the supervision tree
to continue its shutdown order.
