Dynamic Environment Per Branch with ArgoCD

Dynamic Environment Per Branch with ArgoCD

Do you remember? And using helmfile, I will install ArgoCD to my clusters, of course, because it’s an awesome tool, without any doubts. But don’t manage your infrastructure with it, because it’s a part of your infrastructure, and it’s a service that you provide to other teams. And I’ll talk about in one of the next posts. Yes, I have written 4 posts where I was almost absuletely negative about ArgoCD....

Argocd vs Helmfile: Helmfile

In two previous posts I’ve described how it’s possible to install a couple of applications with Applications and ApplicationSets, and this one is the last in a row. And here I’m going to install the same applications (VPA and Goldilocks) with helmfile, and I will tell why I think that it’s better than ArgoCD So let’s start. Here you can find the initial config. Let’s see what we got here:...

ArgoCD vs Helmfile: ApplicationSet

This is a second post about “argocding” your infrastructure. First can be found here. There I’ve tried using Applications for deploying. Here I will try to show an example with ApplicationSets. As in the previous article, I will be installing VPA and Goldilocks So let’s prepare a base. We have 3 clusters: cluster-1 cluster-2 cluster-3 With ApplicationSets you have an incredible amount of ways to deploy stuff. So what I’m doing may look super-different from what you would do...

ArgoCD vs Helmfile: Applications

So as promised in the previous ArgoCD post, I’ll try to show a simple example of Pull Requests for different kinds of setups. This is the first part. Putting everything in the same post seems kind of too much. Intro I’ve created three main branches and three branches for install two applications. I assume we have two production clusters (If you’ve read the previous post, you know that by saying ‘production’, I mean production for SRE team, so they can be dev/stage/whatever for other teams) and one test cluster (the one where SRE team can test anything without affecting other teams)...

Don't use ArgoCD for your infrastructure

Of course, it’s just a clickbait title. Use whatever works for you. I will just describe why I wouldn’t use ArgoCD for the infrastructure Prelude ArgoCD is an incredibly popular tool and I see that many DevOps guys (I know that it’s not a job definition, but I feel like it’s the best description that everybody can understand) want to use everywhere. I wasn’t an exception, but I’ve just changed my mind....

Vst on Linux 3

I’ve been told that I should add descriptions to plugins I’m writing about here, and it sounds very reasonable. So now I will not only describe how to install a plugin but also add a small description to it. Prerequisite All of them are covered in the first post You have Wine and Yabridge installed You have a Wine prefix configured (in my case, $HOME/.wine_vst_plugins/, so every time you see it, use your own wine prefix) Before we begin In the previous post, I was trying to run paulxstretch on Linux, and using it as a plugin in a DAW didn’t work out....

Big ups, Venus Theory!

Their article: *https://output.com/blog/output-favorites-freebies This is kinda article where I’m looking for “BEST FREE VST” articles or videos, or whatever, trying to run them on Linux and checking how they perform.
