Highly recommended things!

This is my five-star list. These are my favorite things in all the world.

A few of these works have had an extraordinary effect on my life or way of thinking. They get a sixth star. ★

Compress & Encrypt to Disk Using OpenSSL in Bash Without Exposing Password
View compress_and_encrypt-no_exposed_password.txt
#
# This is the simplest and cleanest way I've come up with for securely compressing (gzip, in this example) & encrypting data to disk with OpenSSL from a bash script without exposing the password to inspection of process or environment variable using `ps` and the likes. Naturally, `cat` is just used as an example so the data can come from anywhere. If the compressed data is to be sent via email instead of written to disk, don't use '-out' and use '-a' to base64 encode the compressed data.

Walmart Mobile node.js Setup
View gist:7686452

Overview

We run multiple server processes in two data centers. Each process listens on two ports, one for HTTP and one for HTTPS. HTTPS is terminated by Apache prior to reaching node.js. HTTP goes directly from the client to node.js (through a master load balancer). We do not use clusters. We slice our physical servers into thin virtual machines running SmartOS, each with about 3GB of memory designed for a single node.js process.

Our node.js servers are hapi.js servers using the composer functionality and plugins architecture. We have three sets of plugins loaded: mobile web front end experience (single page app), legacy API reverse proxy, and monitoring.

We also serve original node.js services off another server zone which runs closed source plugins using hapi.

Complete Google Drive File Picker example
View 1_README.md

Google Drive File Picker Example

This is an example of how to use the Google Drive file picker and Google Drive API to retrieve files from Google Drive using pure JavaScript. At the time of writing (14th July 2013), Google have good examples for using these two APIs separately, but no documentation on using them together.

Note that this is just sample code, designed to be concise to demonstrate the API. In a production environment, you should include more error handling.

See a demo at http://stuff.dan.cx/js/filepicker/google/
