Getting the GitHub Verified commit badge when using Visual Code on Mac OS X

The Issue

Recently I’ve started to use Visual Code as my editor on Mac OS X, and using it with my GitHub Repos. It’s pretty cool! However I noticed that when I submit a commit via code, I do not see the verified badge.

github commit view - verified

The Cause

When I look at my global git config on my Mac OS X machine, I can see that I’ve configured the settings so that my user details are passed to GitHub as an author of the repository.

git config --global --list

git config --global --list

The Fix

We need to setup a GPG public key to be used by git on our machine when interacting with GitHub. Continue reading Getting the GitHub Verified commit badge when using Visual Code on Mac OS X

Using Docker to update and commit to a container image

I was helping a customer build some customized automation tasks using vRealize Automation Codestream. These tasks required the use of a container image with certain tools installed, usually we can include a CI task to download the tools into the container image on the fly. However, my customer’s environment is offline, so I needed to provide them a container image with everything installed by default.

Before we dive into the process of running a container and committing the changes, it is recommended where possible to create a new docker file that would build your docker image as needed with the associated commands such as the below:

FROM node:12-alpine
RUN apk add --no-cache python g++ make
WORKDIR /app
COPY . .
RUN yarn install --production
CMD ["node", "src/index.js"]

Committing changes to a container image in this way can cause the image to become bloated. But sometimes there’s a need to do just do it this way.

Prerequisites
Pull the image you want to update
docker pull {image location/name}

docker pull image

Check your images and get the ID
docker images

For the next command, we will need the Image ID.docker images

Run your image as an active container
docker run -it {Image_ID} /bin/bash

This will then drop you into the tty of the running container.

docker run -it image_id bash

Modify your container
