Adding Google Web Fonts to a Sproutcore app

Yesterday I was playing with the Hubbub Sproutcore app that is just plain beautiful (and useful, if anyone used it over here in stodgy Italy).
Anyway I noticed that the beautiful texts on the home page are not images, but actual text with fonts. I did not know I had such great fonts on my computer and in fact I don't.

Those fonts come from Google Web Fonts and you can use them too, right away in any of your web apps or sites. Since I am working on a Sproutcore app that could use some beauty I decided to style the app name with this font.

Now, if only I knew how to add the css link to the html generated by abbot...

[/me is gtfw & source browsing for a good 30 mins...]

The solution turns out to be pretty simple and elegant (as everything in SC world, wink wink).
Open the Buildfile in your favourite editor and add a stylesheet_libs option to the project config as follows:


config :all do |c|
    c[:javascript_libs] = ['http://maps.google.com/maps/api/js?v=3.2&sensor=false']
    c[:stylesheet_libs] = ['http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Delius|Leckerli+One|Pacifico']
end

Indexing Apache access logs with ELK (Elasticsearch+Logstash+Kibana)

Who said that grepping Apache logs has to be boring?

The truth is that, as Enteprise applications move to the browser too, Apache access logs are a gold mine, it does not matter what your role is: developer, support or sysadmin. If you are not mining them you are most likely missing out a ton of information and, probably, making the wrong decisions.
ELK (Elasticsearch, Logstash, Kibana) is a terrific, Open Source stack for visually analyzing Apache (or nginx) logs (but also any other timestamped data).

From 0 to ZFS replication in 5m with syncoid

The ZFS filesystem has many features that once you try them you can never go back. One of the lesser known is probably the support for replicating a zfs filesystem by sending the changes over the network with zfs send/receive.
Technically the filesystem changes don't even need to be sent over a network: you could as well dump them on a removable disk, then receive  from the same removable disk.

RUNDECK job maintenance

Learn more about Rundeck.

Now that I have a fair number of jobs scheduled by Rundeck, how do I periodically prune the job execution history and keep only the last, say, 30 executions for each job?
