A new version of Ekanite, the syslog server with built-in search, has been released. v1.2.0 includes some minor fixes and improvements.
You can download v1.2.0 from the GitHub releases page.
I’ve started experimenting with one of the newest packaging systems — Canonical’s Snap format.
I learned about Snap from Mark Shuttleworth when he let me know that he had created a rqlite Snap. It seems pretty clean and straightforward so far — I’ve already started working on my first snap for rqlite, and plan to publish a version as a Ubuntu app.
In every field there is a question that, while it sounds interesting, betrays a naiveté and lack of sophistication.
In my field — SaaS and data platforms — it’s how much data do you have?
I was recently asked by some colleagues about my favourite books on programming. And not just books on coding, but on improving their understanding of successful teams.
rqlite is a lightweight distributed relational database, with SQLite as its storage engine. With release v3.7.0 you can load SQLite dump files directly into rqlite. This makes restoring from a backup, or migrating an existing SQLite database to rqlite much easier.
You can download the release from GitHub.
I gave a presentation on Ekanite — the syslog server with built-in search — tonight at the San Francisco Go Meetup. It was an enjoyable evening, and I had a chance to discuss why I built Ekanite, how it works, and where it might go in the future.
rqlite is a lightweight, open-source distributed relational database, with SQLite as its storage engine. Thanks to the power of the Go tool chain, it is compatible with Microsoft Windows without any extra effort.
