Build your own private, encrypted, open-source Dropbox-esque sync folder

Prerequisites:

  • One or more clients running a UNIX-like OS. Examples are given for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, although all software components are available for other platforms as well (e.g. OS X). YMMV
  • A cheap Ubuntu 12.04 VPS with storage. I recommend Backupsy, they offer 250GB storage for $5/month. Ask Google for coupon codes.

Software components used:

  • Unison for file synchronization
  • EncFS for folder encryption

Bootstrap's Typeahead plugin extended (allowing for AJAX functionality) among other things
View README.markdown

This is a fork of Bootstrap Typeahead that adds minimal but powerful extensions.

For example, process typeahead list asynchronously and return objects

  # This example does an AJAX lookup and is in CoffeeScript
  $('.typeahead').typeahead(
    # source can be a function
    source: (typeahead, query) ->
 # this function receives the typeahead object and the query string

Arggh Golang does not include a round function in the standard math package. So I wrote a quick one.
View round.go
package main
import (
"log"
"math"
)
func Round(val float64, roundOn float64, places int ) (newVal float64) {
var round float64
pow := math.Pow(10, float64(places))

HowTo create a DS.Model from ember-data, handling server-side validation errors
View ember-data-create-error-handling.coffee
# If we save a record using ember-data's RESTadapter, and it fails, Rails
# returns the validation errors of the model as JSON hash:
#
# {"errors":{"name":["may not be blank"]}}
#
# This patches the RESTadapter to add these errors to the invalid record. It
# can be removed when the following Pull Request was merged into ember-data:
# https://github.com/emberjs/data/pull/376
