Deploy to `gh-pages` from a `dist` folder on the master branch. Useful for use with [yeoman](

Deploying a subfolder to GitHub Pages

Sometimes you want to have a subdirectory on the master branch be the root directory of a repository’s gh-pages branch. This is useful for things like sites developed with Yeoman, or if you have a Jekyll site contained in the master branch alongside the rest of your code.

For the sake of this example, let’s pretend the subfolder containing your site is named dist.

Step 1

Remove the dist directory from the project’s .gitignore file (it’s ignored by default by Yeoman).

Large Scale WebRTC Broadcast

Large Scale WebRTC Broadcast

The Problem

WebRTC is a protocol that has been standardized in recent years among major browsers like Chrome, Firefox, Opera and the Android Browsers. Plugins/Native Implementations are available on IE/Edge/Safari and iOS/Android basically providing a relatively global protocol for real time media streams. However WebRTC is a P2P protocol which means that if a user wishes to broadcast his/her video to multiple users he/she needs to individually send that broadcast to each participant. This works on a small scale, but degrades quickly on a large scale due to bandwidth deterioration.

The Solution

One possible solution is to let the user stream his/her media to a server and the server in turn splits the media streams to the subscribers. There are two technical ways to do this. A Selective Forwarding Unit (SFU) which simply forwards streams, and a Multipoint Control Unit (MCU) which essentially does the same thing but lowers bandwidth usage by packaging streams together.

Heroku Deployment (with Mongo Atlas) - ExpressJS + Handlebars

Heroku Deployment - with Mongo Atlas

Benefit of deploying a Heroku free dyno and using Mongo Atlas for your MongoDB is that you are not required to use a credit card during the sign up. The process of setting up a DB cluster with Mongo Atlas takes a bit longer than it would be if you are using the Heroku's MLab add-on (free sandbox).

You can’t perform that action at this time.
