Sometimes I find it handy when I'm developing a single page app to have all front-end errors forwarded to the backend's log (when something doesn't work, I can look in a single terminal window)

Seems the open-source world requires a code of conduct for everything right now. So here is a draft one I’ve done up for Bevry. Feedback welcome.

Bevry Draft Code of Conduct

TLDR: Be a productive member of civilised society, no more, no less.

Results > Character > Identity.

We care only about your character and your results. We discriminate at the individual level, not the group identity level. You can be whatever identity you want, your identity is your thing not ours, identity is meaningless to us.

Libertarian Values.

Mount apt cache of a Vagrant box in the host to spin up the packages installation
View gist:3797297

This is a little trick I use to spin up the packages instalation on Debian/Ubuntu boxes in Vagrant.

I add a simple function that checks if a directory named something similar to ~/.vagrant.d/cache/apt/opscode-ubuntu-12.04/partial (it may have another path in Windows or MacOS) and create the directory if it doesn't already exist.

def local_cache(basebox_name)
  cache_dir ='cache', 'apt', basebox_name)
  partial_dir = cache_dir.join('partial')
  partial_dir.mkdir unless partial_dir.exist?
